My girls making me so proud and making the country sing and adore their message of Love. Pakistan is always a step ahead when it comes to moving forward for friendship and alliance and love and peace. Because war does nothing but destroys everything. #AsmaAbbas #BushraAnsari #PeaceMessage A poem by Neelam Ahmad Bashir.

Unsurprisingly, a few Indians also applauded Bushra Ansari and Asma Abbas for their attempt to de-escalate the tensions between the two nations. Moreover, a famous Bollywood producer Tanuj Garg also reacted to the song.
Look at what he had tweeted:
I don't think much of the #India – #Pakistan 'bhai bhai' propaganda and the various peace slogans that are bandied around. But for what it's worth, the music video (of "Humsaaye Maa Jaaye"), a "peace rap", by #BushraAnsari and #asmaabbas, is sincere and noble.Kudos to the ladies!
