Indian military defence capabilities embarrassingly exposed

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan’s Foreign Office on Friday said India’s defence limitations were embarrassingly exposed to the world, first during its misadventure in Balakot against Pakistan and more recently in Ladakh against China.

While reacting to Indian Air Force Chief’s recent irresponsible statement regarding India being ready for a “two-front war” with China and Pakistan, Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that such provocative statements were a true reflection of RSS-BJP mindset, a dangerous mix of extremist ideology and hegemonic designs.

Speaking at a weekly news briefing here, he said: “While making braggadocio, the Indian leadership must not forget India’s defense limitations. It is ironic that, certain senior Indian political and military leaders continue to make a career out of issuing provocative statements against Pakistan at the cost of putting regional peace and security as well as India’s own security at risk.”

As for China-India tension, he said, India’s belligerent posture and expansionist policies are imperiling regional peace and stability. “We have closely observed border face-off between China and India,” he added.

The spokesperson said Pakistan believed disputes in the region should be resolved through peaceful means and through agreed mechanisms rather than resorting to unilateral, illegal and coercive measures.

“We also believe that irresponsible and provocative statements coming from Indian leadership are a true reflection of RSS-BJP mindset, a dangerous mix of extremist ideology and hegemonic designs,” he said.

Pakistan, he said, had been consistently sensitising the international community regarding India’s involvement in terrorism to destabilise Pakistan and the region.

“Recently, we have seen many international endorsements, which vindicate Pakistan’s consistent position that India is a state sponsor of terrorism. The report by US Magazine further exposes the true face of India — the so-called largest democracy in the world. India’s belligerent posture and expansionist policies are imperiling regional peace and stability,” he said.
