While the whole world is talking about “Peace”. US is pulling its troops from Syria and Afghanistan. Trump-Kim meeting is happening for “Peace”. The humanity has suffered a lot in wars, and learned a bitter lesson, and moving toward “Peace”
Only War-Crazy India is threatening Pakistan, violated Pakistan’s air space, and trying to Coerce Pakistan. But Pakistan has suffered 80,000 lives and economic loss of US Dollars 250 billion, in addition to unfathomable intangible loss, during last four decades due to War in Afghanistan. Pakistan was victim of Afghan War and leaned a bitter lesson and wanted to move toward “Peace”. Pakistan is a very well matured state, Leadership is visionary, and nation is well-civilized and rational in approach. Pakistan observed patience and tried its best to avoid a full-scale war.
However, it is obligation to defend our country, Pakistan has full-capacity to defend its territory. Pakistan will give all possible options to prevail “Peace”, but in case India impose war on us, we know how to defend.
Prime Minister Imran Khan in his address to the nation on 27 February 2019, Wednesday reiterated his dialogue offer to India for resolving issues between the two nations.
“I wanted to take the nation into confidence over the prevailing situation in the country,” he remarked after Pakistan Air Force (PAF) shot down two Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter jets for violating the Pakistani airspace again.
“We offered India that Pakistan will conduct investigation into the Pulwama attack if actionable evidence is provided to us. We were ready for full cooperation,” reminded the premier.
“We understand the grief caused to families when they lose their dear ones. I have visited hospitals and seen the pain of people affected by violence. That is why I offered investigation into the incident,” he explained.
“It is not in our interest that anyone uses our soil for terrorism or foreign land is used against us. I had feared that India will act due to its election compulsions and I warned them against aggression and warned that we will be compelled to respond as no sovereign country can allow the violation of its sovereignty,” maintained PM Khan.
“When India attacked us yesterday we did not respond in haste to avoid casualties on their side. I spoke with my army chief. We took time to take action as we wanted to ascertain our damages first. We were ready to take action today,” he told.
PM Khan notified that the sole purpose of their action was to convey message that if India can enter their space, Pakistan can too.
“Two of their MiGs have been shot down by Pakistani forces and their pilots have been captured,” he noted.
“All wars in world history have been miscalculated, those who started the wars did not know where it will end. World War I was supposed to end in weeks, it took six years. Similarly, the US never expected the war on terrorism to last 17 years,” pronounced the Prime Minister.
“So, I want to ask India, with the weapons you and we have, can we afford miscalculation. Should we not think if the situation escalated?” PM Khan questioned.
“If a war takes place, it will not be in my or Narendra Modi’s control. If you want any kind of talks on terrorism, we are ready as we understand the pain India suffered in Pulwama,” he continued.
“Better sense must prevail. We should sit down & talk,” the Prime Minister concluded.
Pakistan is a peace loving nation and understand the consequences of War, especially, when both countries are nuclear states. It is appealed to International Community to approach India and convince them for “Peaceful resolution of all issues, including occupied Kashmir, through diplomacy and dialogue”. In time action by international community, may save the humanity from big disaster.
