Pakistan’s former Army chief Gen Mirza Aslam Beg has said that the country will use Kartarpur corridor for formulating Khalistan terror, reports India Today. With this shocking revelation, India’s apprehensions about the terror state using the Kartarpur corridor to peddle its anti-India agenda has now been proven right.
The ex-Army chief has said that the terror ‘jihad’ was the “only way to teach India a lesson” and that the Indian Army at the LoC cannot stop the ‘jihadis’.
In a barren attack on India, Mirza Aslam Beg said that “Pakistan army and the government should create trouble for India through Khalistan movement.”
Last year, Punjab CM Amarinder Singh had said that Pakistan is trying to revive militancy in Punjab and had warned that Pakistan is conspiring with Khalistni terrorists ot use the Kartarpur Corridor to achieve that objective. He had said that Pakistan will use the corridor to stoke pro-Khalistan elements, with the help of secessionist SFJ.
He had claimed in December 2018 that it was nothing but an ISI ploy to strengthen anti-India forces. Amarinder had said, “The entire affair of Kartarpur Corridor smacks off a wider conspiracy by the Pakistan Army and ISI to dismember India by reviving militancy in Punjab.”
Meanwhile, Mirza Aslam Beg had expressed earlier also that he wants a hybrid war against India. In fact, many former Pakistan chiefs and high commissioners have opined the same in the past.
Rattled by India decision to abrogate Article 370, Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan had also a few days back warned India of a ‘Pulwama type attack’. Designated global terrorist Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar who had been in the hiding amidst rumours of his death had also in a recorded message echoed Imran Khan’s hollow threats warning India of ‘stormy attacks’ after the repealing of Article 370.
Flummoxed by India’s bold and pathbreaking decision, Pakistan had said that it will exercise “all possible options” to counter the move and approach the International Court of Justice if need be. Interestingly, while India’s historic decision has been welcomed by the Kashmiri’s, Pakistan’s foreign secretary, Sohail Mahmood had reiterated that Pakistan would continue to “extend political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kashmiri people’s struggle for the realisation of their inalienable right to self-determination.”
