My brother 120 years is a very short period in our history and i agree if we held a referendum today they will choose not to join with Pakistan but with time if we show them the benefits of merging they will. lets take a look at Britain. For centuries the English and the Scotts and Welshmen fought and massacred each other but now referendum after referendum and the Scotts are voting to be part of Britain. Lets take a look at the USA, they even had a long and bloody civil war between the Northern and Southern states, but today they are stronger because they are united. They are united because their is fairness in their system. I hope Afghans and Pakistanis will realize this one day.
Reunification is the only solution.
120 years might be short, but the changes aren't small. & aiming for English-Scottish deal isnt really mouth watering either. 45% voted to leave that was before brexit. Many voted to stay in UK becuse that would mean they can stay in EU.
Still even if we consider merging, we need to stop fighting first to show them advantages of willingly merging, & the only way that is possible is when you have peace & no ill will against each other, & that will happen only if the border is officially re-recognized by Kabul & both state aren't at each others throats over it.
