THIS is apropos the recent comments made by Indian Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, who said that Pakistan would pay for the attacks on the military base in Sunjwan, which India claims were carried out by the Pakistani funded Jaish-e-Muhammad.
This is yet another devious bit of strategy by India to divert the world community’s attention from atrocities in Kashmir. It is India that maims Kashmiris. Indian forces shoot pellets on innocent Kashmiri people, which is a horrific act. For India, it is a norm and it doesn’t take into account the sufferings of the victims and their relatives.
India has a habit of intimidating and bullying its neighbours. It has been involved in various crossborder insurgencies in Pakistan, especially in Balochistan. Kulbushan Yadhav, the arrested and on trial RAW agent, is the emblem of Indian-inspired insurgency in Pakistan.
Moreover, the spy himself has confessed to being involved in destabilising Pakistan and funding terrorist groups.
