Indian need to take certain selective measures to tackle with the arising problem such as India must ensure its diplomatic personnel are spread such harassment which is always present. secondly, since the safety of the civilian is important hence, the bombing proof homes should be constructed for them under the supervision of the Government of India. Third, the deployment of military personnel at the border should be done to facilitate safety in the border areas. third, the maintenance of only essential mission staffs in Pakistan should be done till India is able to obtain the trust and stability in the ties in the COVID-19 spared or The financial Action Task Force (FATF) should consider this and put Pakistan in backlist or UN should declare it a terrorist Nation and should put sanction on it.
