Waiting For Orders To Occupy Pakistan-Controlled Kashmir – Pakistan Reacts To Indian Army’s Statement

Delhi’s enthusiasm for war with Pakistan continues to threaten regional stability and global peace with Indian army chief threatening military action to occupy Pakistan-administered-Kashmir.

In a statement endorsing Islamabad’s claims that New Delhi is actively seeking a military confrontation, India’s Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said the Indian army was ready to occupy Pakistan-administered-Kashmir and was just waiting for a go-ahead from the Modi government.

According to India Today, Rawat said the next matter on the Indian army’s agenda was to take over Pakistan-administered-Kashmir and “making it a part of India”. “The government takes actions in such matters. The institutions of the country will work as per the orders of the government. The Army is always ready,” he said.

This is not the first time that the Indian army chief has threatened Pakistan over Kashmir. In October last year, General Rawat said the Indian army would take “other actions” to counter Islamabad’s support for cross-border terrorism.

Pakistan Government has consistently supported the merger of Kashmir with Pakistan and has been sponsoring an aggressive campaign to undermine Indian influence in Jammu and Kashmir.

In his address on Pakistan’s Defence Day this past Friday, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa said Kashmir is an unfinished agenda of the realisation of Pakistan. He said the dispute must be resolved in accordance with the United Nations Security Council resolutions and aspirations of the people of Kashmir.

“Kashmir is Pakistan’s jugular vein and we will never abandon our Kashmiri brethren,” said General Bajwa, adding that Pakistan’s armed forces were ready to give every sacrifice for the people of Kashmir.

“Kashmiris are the victim of the oppression and tyranny of India’s Hindutva government. I want to assure the people of Kashmir that Pakistan will never leave them alone. The hearts of Pakistanis and Kashmiris beat together.”

The army chief asserted that Pakistan was a supporter of peace and prosperity. “Today the peaceful and changing Pakistan is a message of peace, progress and tolerance for the world. When we look at the situation of the subcontinent, there are clouds of war and unease as we hope for peace and prosperity but Pakistan’s role has always remained positive,” he added.

“Today’s Pakistan gives a message of peace and this message is for the entire world. Pakistan has fulfilled its responsibilities and it is now up to the global community to reject extremism.”
