Pakistan propagates ‘cluster bomb’ bogey a day after Pakistan made mine and American M-24 sniper were found in Kashmir

Ghafoor was, however, shown the reality by a Baloch freedom activist who in turn reminded how Pakistan uses the 'cluster bombs' in Balochistan.

Days after Indian armed forces sent additional troops to the valley, Pakistani Armed Forces spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor has propagated that Indian Army has violated international conventions and used cluster bombs against Pakistan.


Ghafoor, the Director-General of Pak spy agency Inter-Services (ISI), accused India of violating international convention by using ‘cluster bombs’ to target its civilians. However, the timing of his accusation sits well with the agenda that he and his ilk try to propagate.

Ghafoor was, however, shown the reality by a Baloch freedom activist who in turn reminded how Pakistan uses the ‘cluster bombs’ in Balochistan.


Recently, the Indian army had recovered Pakistan made IED and American M-24 sniper from the Amarnath Yatra route. On Friday afternoon, Chinar Corps Commander Lt General K.J.S. Dhillon held a press conference to apprise the prevailing situation in Jammu & Kashmir. He was accompanied by some other officers of the Indian Army.

While the land mine bearing marks of the Pakistan Ordnance Factory was displayed at the press conference, it certainly points out a definitive role of Pakistan in fueling terrorism in the valley.


Sensing a terror threat to the lives of the yatris, the Jammu and Kashmir government issued a notice urging them to cut short their pilgrimage and return immediately. Soon after, Machail Yatra to Goddess Durga shrine in Kistwar district was also suspended.

Presumably, to avoid answering uncomfortable questions and playing the victim card, Ghafoor found an easy way out by inventing the ‘cluster bomb’ theory against India. This is also one of the old tricks up Pakistan’s sleeves. Pakistan indulged in psychological warfare in the aftermath of Pulwama attacks as well. The Pakistani Army deployment, including radars and air defense system along the LoC, was strengthened immediately after the February 14 Pulwama attack as they expected Indian retaliation similar to that of the 2016 surgical strike.
