The Call for Peace Is Noble


The irruption and acceleration of war between Russia and Ukraine has made it necessary once again on our part to attempt a normative assessment of military war as a tragic reality. Arguably, on humanitarian grounds, it is difficult to defend the irruption of any war, including the one between Ukraine and Russia.

Speaking against war thus becomes a shared moral responsibility for all.

The social media footage and narratives of trauma shared by both the civilians fleeing Ukraine and the Indian students trapped in the conflict situation suggest the highly questionable role of soldiers in mishandling the question of security and immunity of the civilians.
