Pakistan’s Defense Minister, Khawaja Asif, has warned that it will ‘Destroy India‘ with nuclear weapons if the country ‘dares to impose war’.
His comments came as Pakistan blamed ‘cross-border fire’ from India for the death of two of its soldiers in the disputed region of Kashmir.
Pakistan has practiced terror politics for years now. First, they manufacture terrorists on their soil and then they export their terrorists all across the world. Following the same lines, Defense Minister Khawaja Asif reportedly told Pakistani TV channel SAMAA on September 26: ‘We will destroy India if it dares to impose war on us. Pakistan army is fully prepared to answer any misadventure of India. We have not made an atomic device to display in a showcase. If a such a situation arises we will use it and eliminate India.’
India and Pakistan have gone to war four times since they gained independence from Britain in 1947 and diplomats are concerned the situation in Kashmir may be the trigger for another conflict.
India said it had conducted ‘surgical strikes’ along the disputed border with Pakistan – known as the Line Of Control – in a bid to thwart attacks by those it claims are ‘terrorists’.
Pakistan and India often trade fire in Kashmir, which is split between the two countries and claimed by both in its entirety.
Both countries have troops stationed on the strategic Siachen Glacier, which is so cold that soldiers are regularly warned not to fall asleep while on duty for fear of freezing to death.
Earlier this month 18 Indian soldiers were killed in an attack by Kashmiri rebels, who New Delhi suggests are supported by Pakistan.
Pakistan’s obsession to Destroy India
There are many in the Pakistani administration and Pakistani military who dream to destroy India by tit or by tat. History is evident that people in the highest echelons of power have openly admitted their hatred towards India. In fact, commentators claim that the sole reason why Pakistan invests so heavily in its military instead of society is its hatred towards India.
There is an entire protocol called, “Ghazwa-e-Hind”, which is based on ways to destroy India.
At the face of such hostility and animosity, it becomes very important for the largest democracy on Earth to be prepared for any eventuality.
