A day after Indian home minister threatened to break Pakistan into ‘10 pieces’, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said India's designs to disintegrate Pakistan will not succeed.
In a statement, Nisar said life for minorities in India had become miserable, who were facing threats under Narendra Modi's rule. Indian government had created walls of hatred in the whole country, he added.

The interior minister argued that the hands of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were stained with the blood of innocent Kashmiris, and the arrest of Kulbhushan Yadav was a clear proof of Indian meddling into Pakistan's affairs.
Speaking to a gathering in Indian-held Kashmir’s Kathua district on Sunday, Rajnath Singh once again accused Pakistan of “trying to destabilise India by encouraging terrorism”, a charge Islamabad has repeatedly rejected.

Tensions between Islamabad and Delhi have been at an all-time high ever since Indian security forces killed popular Kashmir separatist leader Burhan Wani in July this year.
Since then, the two nuclear-armed neighbours have been locked in a standoff along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary due to regular ceasefire violations by India which have cost both civilians and military personnel their lives.
