Statesman Report
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that nation displayed “maturity and unity” while dealing with the crisis between Pakistan and India in the wake of Pulwama suicide attack in Occupied Kashmir last year.
The premier was speaking at a commemorative ceremony titled, Pakistan’s Responsible and Resolute Response to Indian Aggression of 26th February 2019, in Islamabad.
“I am speaking as Pakistani not as prime minister that I was so proud to see how Pakistani nation dealt with crisis during the standoff with India,” he added.
PM Imran also appreciated the role of armed forces, political parties and media for showing unity during the military stand-off with India in February last year.
Imran also said that Pakistan could have responded to Indian airstrike in the first place but “we did not panic and analysed the ground situation to know that the attack did not cause any casualties”.
The manner, the premier said, in which the country’s civil and military leadership responded to the situation reflects that “Pakistan is a mature and responsible country”.
“Despite political difference all political parties were on the same page during the crisis,” he said.
Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan warned the international community about the Nazi-inspired ideology that seems to have taken over nuclear-armed India, and urged the world to act before it is too late to prevent bloodshed.
In his message on the rapidly deteriorating situation in Delhi, posted on the social networking platform Twitter, PM Imran said that the 200-million strong Muslim minority was being targeted in India. He warned that the bloodshed would get worse if nothing was done.
“Today, in India, we are seeing the Nazi-inspired RSS ideology take over a nuclear-armed state of over a billion people. Whenever a racist ideology based on hatred takes over, it leads to bloodshed,” he wrote on Twitter.
