Srinagar: Threatening India of nuclear war once again, Federal Minister for Railways in Pakistan, Sheikh Rashid, has said that there is no scope for conventional war if the country is attacked by India and Pakistan will reply with nuclear weapons which “will save Muslim lives and will only target regions.”
On August 19, in an interview with Pakistani media channel Samaa TV, Rashid claimed that Pakistan has very precise weapons which are “small and perfect”.
“If Pakistan gets attacked by India, there is no scope for a “conventional war”. This will be a bloody, final and nuclear war,” Rashid said.
The Pakistan minister also said that the weapons will only target certain regions and even Assam can now come under their range of attack.
He said that Pakistan will have no option in a conventional war and “if something will happen, it will be the end”, indicating a nuclear war.
“If Pakistan gets attacked by India, there is no scope for conventional war. This will be a bloody and nuclear war. It will be a nuclear war for sure. We have very calculated weapons which are small and perfect. Our weapons will save Muslim lives and will only target certain regions. Pakistan’s range now even includes Assam. Pakistan has no option in conventional war; therefore India knows if something happens, it will be the end,” Rashid said during an interview with the news channel.
In 2019, post abrogation of Article 370 that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan condemned the move by India at an international platform.
In August 2019, Khan had said that the world must know that when two nuclear countries face-off, the whole world gets harmed.
“I want to tell (Narendra) Modi that our Army is ready for anything. The world should know that when two nuclear countries face-off, the whole world will be harmed. I tell this to everyone I speak with,” Khan said while addressing the ‘Kashmir Hour’ rally on August 30 2019, in Pakistan.
Pakistan observed “Kashmir Hour” to express solidarity with the Kashmiri people after India revoked the special status of JK.
The main event was held at Islamabad’s Constitution Avenue where Khan delivered an address to a flag-waving and slogan-shouting crowd.
