Pakistan has accused India of killings four of its civilians with artillery fire that allegedly targeted villages in the disputed border area between the two neighboring countries.

A Pakistani army statement says that four were killed and five villagers were wounded in the shelling on Thursday in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir and near the eastern Pakistani city of Sialkot.

Pakistan also says it has handed the Indian diplomatic envoy a protest note over the incident.

Such exchanges occur regularly between the two archrivals, India and Pakistan fought three wars since both the countries got independence from British rule in 1947.

India on Wednesday said Pakistani forces killed a woman on the Indian-controlled side of the border. Pakistan’s army later said it shot down an Indian done.

When I was in school, we were taught in the history subject about the breakup of India and Pakistan. We students couldn't come to terms because what we had in mind is the fact that they are all Indians. It didn't occur to us, because it was not explained by our teacher, that India is Hindu and Pakistan is Islam. So that difference in religion is a good reason for dividing their country into 2. But even though divided, they can live harmoniously and I hope this small incident is an isolated case and will not be blown up.
