Clear warning to India

AMID unabated ceasefire violations by Indian troops, Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza in an unscheduled hot line contact with his Indian counterpart warned that continued provocations along the LOC and Working Boundary could invoke an unbearable response. The very statement of DGMO clearly shows that Pakistan’s patience is running out over the incessant Indian violations which have reached about 1300 this year claiming the lives of fifty two civilians and injuries to one hundred and seventy.
Despite Indian provocations aimed at diverting attention from its atrocities in occupied Kashmir, the fact of the matter is that our forces are demonstrating utmost restraint and are only retaliating to the fire from the other side. Since the assumption of power by Modi, we have been stating in these columns that border violations by Indian forces pose serious threat to regional peace and stability and that the world’s important capitals must use their influence to stop the Indian provocations as these definitely have the potential to turn into a limited or a full-fledged conflict. Though it has always been the desire of Pakistan to engage India in result oriented dialogue but the other side has never reciprocated in a positive manner rather Modi govt is bent upon hatching conspiracies and flaring up situation on the borders to create problems for us on multiple fronts. This clearly reflects that the extremists in India despite the passage of seven decades have not accepted the creation of Pakistan. The other day, Army Chief GenQamar Javed Bajwa while visiting Corps Headquarters Rawalpindi also rightly pointed out that our preparedness must be meticulous for response against perpetual threat on our eastern border. Though nothing good can be expected from Modi, yet sane minds there must realise that any sort of conflict will not augur well for this already volatile and conflict ridden region as such a course will further add to the woes and deprivation of the people of the two countries. Instead of engaging in conflict or plotting evil designs, India must understand that resolution of lingering disputes will lead to greater economic cooperation and accrue more benefits for its people and the region. It is now up to the Indian side which course it chooses as Pakistan is ready for both the situations.
