Pakistan Military responds to Indian PM Narendra Modi threats of defeating Pakistan Army in 7 days
RAWALPINDI: *Pakistan Military responds to Indian PM Narendra Modi threats of defeating Pakistan Army in 7 days.*
Major General Asif Ghafoor, the outgoing Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), at his farewell talk to the media on Thursday advised the Indian government and military leadership to talk sense and refrain from giving irresponsible statements.
“The civil and military leadership of Pakistan desire peace in the region without compromising on country’s sovereignty, while the Indian leaders should also be aware of importance of peace in the region,” Major General Asif Ghafoor said.
Major General Asif Ghafoor said it would be an honour for him if the Indians were happy over his transfer. "Indian leadership says it will destroy Pakistan in 7-10 days," he said. "I want to tell them that Pakistan Army will always continue to give you (Indians) surprises," he added.
Major General Asif Ghafoor, who served as DG ISPR for over three years, was transferred as General Officer Commanding 40 Infantry Division, Okara, about two weeks back.
His successor Major General Babar Iftikhar would take over as DG ISPR on February 01 (Saturday).
“How a (Indian) military which could not suppress freedom movement of 80 million Kashmiris, can finish Pakistan of 210 million people in seven to 10 days,” the DG ISPR said, reiterating that the Pakistani nation and armed forces would continue to surprise Indians.
Major General Asif Ghafoor said that Pakistan and India had reached at the verge of war in February last year but it was super military strategy adopted by Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa which saved South Asia from a big disaster.
“Preparedness of Pakistan’s armed forces and their professional ability and effective response also paved the way for peace,” he said, recalling that he had already maintained that war started by India would be finished by Pakistan.
