Reacting to India’s internal matter regarding effective abrogation of Article 370 and bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan today threatened India saying that “incidents like Pulwama are bound to happen again”, after Indian government decided to revoke Article 370 and strip Jammu and Kashmir of the special status. Foretelling a terror attack, Khan said, “I can already foretell this will happen. They will attempt to pin the blame on us again. They may strike us again, and we will strike back.”
Khan was addressing a joint session of the National Assembly on Tuesday to deliberate about the country’s response to India’s decision of scrapping Article 370 from its constitution and thereby revoking the special status granted to the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Khan declaimed that when he came to power, his government’s priority was to improve relations with the neighbouring country including India.
“On my first communication with India, they had raised concerns about militant outfits operating from Pakistan. I assured Modi that after the tragic incident of Army School massacre, all the political parties in Pakistan pledged to not let their land be used for terror activities. However, I felt that the Indian side was interested in talks. My doubts were confirmed on my trip to Bikshek, where the Indian side showed no willingness to talk about the strained relations between the two countries,” Khan said.
Khan further said that the Indian regime believes in Hindu supremacy and their aim to bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir and scrap Article 370 is a manifestation of their entrenched ideology that puts Hindus above other religions and aims to subjugate minorities by the use of sheer brute and force. “What happened in Kashmir reconciles with their ideology. They are racists,” Khan said.
In what appeared as another desperate attempt to draw the world’s attention towards Kashmir after failing innumerable times, Khan said, “India will intensify their clampdown on Kashmiris now. This will result in incidents like Pulwama attack. They will place the blame on us and attack us. We will respond and both the countries will go to war which will have grave consequences for the rest of the world. This is not nuclear blackmail. We want world leaders to take note of this matter. I will inform the Western world about the systematic repression of Muslims done by the Indian government.”
With this threat, all the pretence of Pakistan being serious and committed against clamping down the terror organisations operating from its land stands exposed as PM Khan hails and attempts to glorify terror attacks such as Pulwama attack that killed 40 Indian soldiers.
Pulwama attack was schemed by Pakistan based Jaish-e-Muhammad terror organisation. In a dastardly attack, a Kashmiri youth indoctrinated by religious bigotry was brainwashed to attack a convoy of CRPF convoy, killing 40 soldiers. After the attack, JeM released a video in which the attacker was seen spewing hatred for Hindus. After Pulwama attack, Indian Air Force avenged the deaths of the Indian Bravehearts by conducting airstrikes deep inside Pakistan, in Balakot, killing about 200-300 JeM terrorists.
