ISLAMABAD: (Parliament Times) Â Pakistanâ€™s Defence Minister Khawaja Asif on Monday warned neighbouring India of severe consequences in case New Delhi tried to conduct a real surgical strike.
In a fiery speech during the Senate session, Asif said India does not want to continue the process of negotiation. The neighbouring countryÂ doesnâ€™t want tension to subside, he stated.
The defence minister was speaking over the subject of Indian violation of the border. He pointed to the claim made by the Indian Chief of Army Staff that India could conduct another surgical strike.
â€œThe first surgical strike by India was also fake,â€ said the defence minister, adding that the entire farce of the surgical strikes was created to dupe the Indian nation.
Khawaja Asif in his speech said that there could be some possible explanation behind Indiaâ€™s fake claim of across-the-border strikes.
India wants to link the ongoing freedom struggle in Occupied Kashmir to terrorism and infiltration.
India wants to connect the ongoing uprising in IoK to Pakistan and made such references on several international forums, although it remained unsuccessful.
Pakistan will continue to provide diplomatic and moral support to the people of the Occupied territory, he said.
Khawaja Asif said that Pakistan has garnered successes in war against terrorism.
â€œThe coalition of 16 countriesâ€™ militaries in Afghanistan was no way near our level of success,â€ he said.
Asif said that the armed forces successfully eliminated the terrorist safe havens in North Waziristan.
The Senate also unanimously passed a resolution against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for linking terrorism to Pakistan.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had branded Pakistan a “mothership of terrorism” at the summit of BRICS nations in October.
Modi’s remarks to a meeting of leaders from BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – aimed to escalateÂ his diplomatic drive to isolate Pakistan.
Modiâ€™s statements failed to muster the support of BRICS leaders to include Pakistan in the five-nation blocâ€™s declaration as a terrorist state.
In their joint statement, the BRICS leaders had condemned recent attacks against some of its members â€œincluding that in Indiaâ€ but had made no mention of Pakistan.
