Islamabad: Caretaker Prime Minister Anwarul Haq hit out at India for violence in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and said Islamabad was ready to face any attack from New Delhi. Kakar, while addressing a hall on the so-called Kashmir Day, said that the Indian government has been continuously claiming Gilgit-Baltistan. If India is thinking of attacking Pakistan then we are ready for it. His inflammatory statement has come just three days before the general elections in the country.
Pak Army Chief’s bad words
At the same time, Pakistan Army Chief General Asim Munir said that a befitting reply will be given to those who attack the country. Accusing India of targeting individuals in his country, Munir said the Pakistani Army is well aware of the entire threat situation and is always ready to respond effectively. Munir said that during his visit to Sarian sector of the Line of Control, he was informed about the latest situation on the LoC.
Pakistan had made this allegation
Pakistan last month claimed it had “credible evidence” of links between “Indian agents” in the killing of two Pakistani terrorists belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba. India had last year rejected Pakistan’s allegations of involvement of Indian agents in the killing of two Pakistani terrorists in Sialkot and Rawalakot, calling it “false and malicious” propaganda. External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal said this is Pakistan’s latest attempt to spread false and malicious anti-India propaganda. He said Pakistan would “reap what it sows”. He said, “Blaming others for one’s misdeeds can neither be a justification nor a solution.
Manir was with the acting Prime Minister
Earlier in the day, General Munir had accompanied acting Prime Minister and so-called Prime Minister of Kashmir Anwarul Haq during his visit to Muzaffarabad on the occasion of “Kashmir Day”, which Pakistan celebrates on February 5 every year. Interestingly, the visit took place on the same day when India allocated a budget of $13 billion for Jammu and Kashmir.
