Islamabad, January 17: Pakistan Defence Minister Khwaja Asif on Monday announced that Pakistan's armed forces would respond with full force if India tried to carry out any surgical strikes inside Pakistan. In a clamorous speech in the Pakistan Senate, its Defence minister said that if India dared to carry out surgical strikes inside Pakistan, a befitting response would be meted out, making India forget any claims of false strikes.
Importantly, the Pakistan defense Minister vowed to continue his nation's support to the saparatists, militants against India. He added that Pakistan would continue extending political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kashmiris in their struggle.
Asif made a hillarious claim that India's past claims of surgical strikes were found to be baseless and false.
Repeating Pakistan's ageold allegations against India regarding so called 'Kashmiri struggle', Asiuf said that India's internal political compulsion, and its avoidance of composite dialogue were among the reasons behind its unprovoked ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and Working Boundary. Continuing his allegations,
Asif continued his anti India remarks saying that India was making failed attempts to link the Kashmiri struggle with cross-border infiltration and terrorism.
Taking shelter of fallacy to demean India, the Pakistan minister claimed Pakistan's success in the fight against terrorism that has made India's campaign had already failed on the diplomatic front and that it was afraid of.
Asif informed the Pakistan Senate that India had carried out 330 ceasefire violations ─ 290 along the LoC and 40 along the WB ─ until December 2016, which killed 45 civilians while 138 others were injured. Pakistan Minister patted himself awarding a global certificate that Pakistan's successes in the fight against terrorism had been recognised by the international community.
