Amid rising tension on the border, the Indian Army has warned Pakistan of ‘unexpected damages.’

“There are certain elements across the border who want to create trouble on the Line of Control … we have to give them certain unexpected damage to so that they don’t repeat it in future,” said Lieutenant General KH Singh, who commands the 16 Corps, according to NDTV.

Pakistan and India have constantly exchanged gunfire in the last week. Four people have been killed by the firing of Indian border security forces on civilian populations on the Pakistani side in recent days. Five more have been left injured by the unprovoked attacks.

“One girl was killed on the Pakistan side – we regret the incident,” Singh said.

The clashes have thrown the fate of crucial talks between the national security advisers of Pakistan and India in the doldrums with New Delhi reluctant to fix a date for the meeting.

During a recent meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi in the Russian city of Ufa, the two leaders had agreed to a meeting of their security advisers in New Delhi to discuss issues related to terrorism.

However, renewed tensions along the Line of Control in Kashmir and the working boundary in Sialkot, as well as the intrusion of an Indian ‘spy’ drone into Pakistani territory, may lead to the postponement of the crucial talks, a senior government official believes.

    To all Pakistanis let me tell you one bitter truth, Your country would have been invaded many times if you didn’t have the Nukes. India as a peaceful country don’t want any nuke conflict, people showing military power should ask their government to once dismantle nukes & then we will see the outcome(1971 PART2).

    Even after the controlled Chinese Press has confirmed that the so called spy Drone shot down was Chinese and not Indian, the propaganda of Indian spy drone shot down continues. All this firing has started after PM Nawaz Sharif tried to reach out to India at Ufa, basically an effort to show both countries who sets policy in Pakistan. The peaheads who make policy interventions in unconventional ways little realize that they are blowing away any hope of CPEC opportunity taking off. Signing away ones future due to hatred for someone else is both shortsighted and pigheaded. Recommend

    With the Indian Parliament having gone into session the Indian leadership wants a few dramas for distraction. The speed with which Modi wanted to meet Nawaz at Ufa points to the very short term objectives of the hand shake. Modi succeeded in showing and tricking the Indian audience K was no longer an issue while the incentive for Nawaz was to be seen as a guy of peace in the eyes of the global community. Things went up in smoke once the Indian media started making too much noise about K.

    If India believes It’s Pakistan Army which is behind the recent cross border activity it knows it is looking for excuses to shift blame. We do not deny that owing to our specific needs Pakistan is being run by political and Army leadership working in tandem, so currently the decisions vs India are jointly made.

    Your argument makes no sense. It is like telling the Indians that Pakistan would invade them several times if India did not have a larger army to defend. Nukes are part of modern armament and typically constitute our power. What you are saying is that a war won with swords is the real determinant of bravery and heroism ignoring that your adversary may not need swords, yet it can blow you out of your holes.

    Bad logic. The fact that they expressed regret over killing the girl means that was not deliberate. How this proves that the army is planning terror attacks in Pakistan is unclear. Unlike Pakistan, Indian army neither controls various industries and Shaadi halls giving it sources of funds nor does RAW report to it. The reference was to giving a very robust response to Pakistani mischief on LOC.
    The Pakistani army is determined to not allow talks between India and Pslistan to proceed.Recommend

    No body is going to give you answer if you have chosen not to open your mind to reality. What is military power? You can have any interpretation but it’s very easy to understand why India has never again taken any Punga with Pakistan since its conspiracy and invasion of East Pakistan. The answer is it will not be in the best interest to go on a war with each other because Pakistan is not same as it was half a century ago. So you can not really say India’s military power is of any advantage to India vs Pakistan. Numbers are no more relevant in the current day particularly between Nuke powers. Let us get rid of hegemonic designs, India is no longer in a position to push Pakistan which is a fact of which your leaders are well aware of. You seem so much obsessed and fearful of Pakistan’s emergence in the region that in order to harm Pakistan you are prepared to pamper and even crawl before the Chinese despite your nations historic humiliation by the Chinese.Recommend

    Ram’s comments are focused on a narrow aspect. There cannot be peace ever with Pakistan because Pakistan mistreats its non-Muslims horribly and have enshrined that 2nd class status to them in their constitution. To that alone, India should react very strongly against Pakistan but India has traditionally opened its doors to all kinds of Pakistanis. We Indians mostly resent the bulk of the attitudes and thinking of the Pakistanis. Likewise Pakistanis hate India for being secular and made of different faiths. How can there ever be peace!! Kashmir is not the issue, it is the inbuilt hatred for non_msulims which is the root cause of all issues !Recommend

    Pak can never use its nuclear arsenal otherwise it will suffer a treatment worse than Iraq by the international community. China will not be able to save Pakistan because it has been an accomplice. Hence India can surprise Pakistan by reacting. Because Pakistan has been used to a staid Congress government, it gets surprised by normal reaction from India’s new govt.

    Pakistan has been quite ready to implode from inside, hence India need not even launch a military war- feasible or not because the internal implosion is very feasible.

    Despite Pakistan being nuclear, it can be forced to make forced U-Turns by international community at the right time and by China itself….now add another body ‘SCO’ that has now stake in Af-Pak region stability and has an official stake now with admission of Pak as a full time member.

    http://tribune.com.pk/story/924105/border-violation-iran-fires-four-mortar-shells-into-panjgur/

    As I have said previously, Pakistan must do deep soul searching as to why three of her four neighbors, Iran, Afghanistan and India, from time to time have resorted to cross border firing that targets Pakistan.

    Pakistan needs to also do deep soul searching why these three neighbors do not feel the same need to indulge in similar cross border firing in dealing with their neighbors like Turkmenistan in Iran’s case, Tajikistan in Afghanistan’s sake or Nepal in India’s case.

    Ceasing to provoke neighbors particularly by fomenting cross border Sunni Islamic Terrorism will benefit the people of Pakistan greatly by having to deal with one less problem of mortar shelling among the myriads of problems assailing Pakistan.Recommend
