Indian army chief is provoking war: ISPR

RAWALPINDI: An Inter Services Public Relation’s (ISPR) statement, on Friday, reminded the Indian chief of army staff (COAS) to avoid war provoking, irresponsible, statements endangering regional peace for electioneering of political masters.

According to detail, the Indian COAS is repeatedly provoking war through irresponsible statements.

From ‘fake surgical strike’ to-date his only success has been to turn Indian army into a rogue force and getting them killed.

Indian army chief’s statements coupled with blood of innocents on hand, losses to Indian forces at the hands of Pakistan armed forces, helicopter crashes due to so called technical fault cum fratricide just to become the Indian chief of defence staff (CDS) is actually at the cost of professional military ethos.

Meanwhile, to brush off the Indian blatant lies, Pakistan on Tuesday, according to an official statement, arranged the visit of the diplomatic corps in Islamabad along with media, including foreign media, by helicopter to the site of recent Indian ceasefire violations (CFVs) which resulted in the martyrdoms of five innocent civilians on the Pakistani side and injuries to 6 others. 

After the baseless and fallacious statement of the Indian army chief alleging that the recent Indian CFVs were targeting ‘launch pads/terrorist camps’ on the Pakistani side of the line of control (LoC), Pakistan requested the Indian high commission in Islamabad to share details, including longitudes and latitudes of the alleged location to back the Indian allegations.

No response has been received so far from India. 

 The diplomatic corps and media were taken to the LoC, including Jura to witness firsthand the fallacy of the Indian claims.

They personally witnessed the destruction of life and property resulting from the recent Indian CFVs, including use of heavy artillery. The Indian high commission officials in Islamabad were also invited but did not show up. 

 The irresponsible allegations of the Indian army chief and the lack of response from India when asked to back its hollow assertions with details of the alleged launch pads/camps not only expose the lies and deceit being employed as state policy and Indian aggressive posture which is a growing threat to regional peace and stability.

The visit further exposed the Indian falsehood to the international community and the desperate attempts being resorted by India to divert international attention from the humanitarian nightmare in the Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK).

Pakistan does not harbour any aggressive designs. Our armed forces and people remain ready to defend the country against any acts of aggression.
