Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat is afraid of Islamic Pakistan

NEW DELHI - Indian army chief General Bipin Rawat seems scared of an Islamic State in Pakistan.

He said on Friday that Pakistan will have to become a secular state to coexist peacefully with India.

The remarks were made only two days after Pakistan extended an olive branch to the neighbouring country by doing groundbreaking of Kartarpur border corridor in a bid to ease Indian pilgrims’ visit to the shrine of Guru Nanak Devji, the founder of the Sikh faith.

Addressing the ceremony, in which along with other guests Indian ministers were also present, Prime Minister Imran Khan had proposed that if France and Germany can live in peace then why India and Pakistan can’t do the same.

General Rawat’s remarks were made while interacting with the local media on the sidelines of a military ceremony in Pune earlier in the day, *The Indian Express* link reported.

“For this idea of countries coming together, Pakistan will have to look at their own internal situation. Pakistan has made itself into an Islamic State. If they have to stay together with India, they will have to become a secular state. We are a secular state.

How can we stay together, when they say they are an Islamic State and there is no role for anyone else,” Gen Rawat was quoted by the Indian media outlet as saying
