ISLAMABAD: Responding to Indian Information Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore’s statement that Indian strikes in Myanmar were a message to all countries with hostile intentions towards India, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar said those who are contemplating any kind of adventure in Pakistan must know they will get a befitting response, adding that India should know “Pakistan is not Myanmar”.

Rathore on Wednesday said Indian strikes in Myanmar were a message to all countries, including Pakistan and groups harbouring ‘terror intent’ that India would strike at the ‘place and at a time’of its choosing.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, Nisar said Pakistan won’t be affected by statements issued by Indian ministers every other day.

“Pakistani masses and the government desire peace and prosperity in the region, which is why, despite reservations, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif attended Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s oath-taking ceremony to initiate dialogue between the two countries,” said the statement.

But in return, the interior minister said, Pakistan got nothing and all doors of dialogue and reconciliation were closed.

Nisar said violations across the Line of Control, and provoking statements from Indian minister had become a routine affair. He said India should know that Pakistan wanted peace but would never accept India’s dominance. “India should stop day-dreaming,” he added.

    “Place and time of its choosing”, looks like 7 years isn’t enough time still. The same threat was issued in 2008. This is just a publicity stunt and an attempt to boost the dying morale of IA and indian public. And it was only really needed after 20 of their roasted by untrained and barely armed conscripts. India is a state of panic, recent attacks resulted in 20 dead, coast guard plane with 9 people gone missing, killing of sikh leader resulting in an uprise, daily kashmir militants, and most importantly uprooting of their networks in Pakistan and elimination of their backed ttp.

    Let them make the mistake, Mr. Nisar. India’s mouth filled with its blood will be a suitable response to a poke. Recommend

    India must know – nothing will serve as a better mean for uniting Pakistanis than India adventurism. Also India must know, it is not 1965 nor it is 1971, you are talking with a nuclear Pakistan that is strategically aligned with China at your border. Yes Pakistan may not have great relations with Saudis or Iranian as they may had in 1965 and 1971, but against India every Pakistan (home or abroad) will be untied.Recommend

    It’s the most ironic period of our nation, when tested enemy openly admit it’s past artistically planned cutting East Pakistan from its body n now warned remaining Pakistan with another planned adventure. Pathetically, Pakistan civilian leadership (if call them leaders) still sleeping in their air-conditioned bedrooms. Wake up you, useless n corrupt leaders of Pakistan, India is not just joking, person like Modi will act upon his words. Forget about crying for American or what that matter anyone’s help, either you face alone Indian warning or accept its kingship. Action speaks louder then words, Indian proved this in 1971 n it is going for second kill. It’s shame to note that Pakistan civilian leadership more concern with winning seats then worrying about Indian threats. Recommend

    I think pakistani are taking it in very negative sense. The operation carried out in Myanmar was with full knowledge and permission of its government and military. India did not attack Myanmar, it just attacked the terrorists hiding in Myanmar teritory. If pakistani army is not supporting terrorists, I don’t know what is the reason to be jumping so much up and down here. Isn’t America killing militants inside pakistan on almost daily basis?Recommend

    @abhi:

    Yes we know it was done with permission, there is nothing special about killing untrained conscripts that barely can hold a weapon up. However following the operation there were remarks targeted towards Pakistan of similar type by your officials. This is just a response in words, a response in action will be given as well once India manages to muster enough courage to as much as poke Pakistan.Recommend
