The Pakistan High Commission in London also screened a documentary highlighting the rescue operations carried out by the army, amongst other military operations and feats achieved by the Pakistan Army during times of war.
Speaking to Global Village Space, Jan Achakzai, notable geo-strategic analyst and Chairman of the Center for Geo-Politics and Balochistan, observed that the Pakistan Army is fully prepared to launch a befitting response to any Indian misadventure.
Delhi sensing Pakistan’s tactical muscles has already withdrawn its forward troops into Indian Territory of almost 85 km.
Jan Achakzai said, “Pakistan is prepared for any Indian misadventure. Starting from Pakistan Air Force’s strength and capability post-Balakot has widely been acknowledged. Compared to India’s Air Force’s 1.5 pilots per aircraft, PAF is at a ratio of 2.5. PAF has no issue with squadron strength and target practice like their IAF.”
The Baloch analyst explained that the Indian Air Force’s procurement of the widely publicized Rafael will not serve the purpose of giving the Indians superiority over the Pakistani fighter jets.

He said, “This month, the addition of French Rafale to IAF, will not be a surprise for Pakistani pilots who have already been given access and were trained to operate. They are aware of the exact specifications of the fighters hence will deal a serious blow to the platform’s potential viability once in Indian hands. Pakistan is actively discussing several options also.”
War Policy: One Bullet-Two Killed
Jan Achakzai observed that Pakistan has already exhibited its tactical muscle during the ongoing border skirmishes. He said, “Delhi sensing Pakistan’s tactical muscles has already withdrawn its forward troops into Indian Territory of almost 85 km.”
Outlining Pakistan’s war policy, the analyst said, “Pakistani forces operate on one bullet- two kill policy if there is any aggression by India.”
The Baloch analyst underscored that India is left with only one option: staging a false flag attack. Achakzai explained, “The only option India is left with is false flag operation. Recent psyops suggest they are trying to prepare the ground for this scenario as violence grows and militancy returns to IOK with vengeance, Delhi is trying to divert attention from Kashmiris and show to the world it is allegedly Pakistan which is doing so. But people do not buy into these obsolete “bogey narratives of India on Kashmir and Pakistan.”
Shedding light on the relations between the Imran Khan-led government and the military establishment, Achakzai observed, “Relations between Imran Khan Govt and Pakistan army are in excellent shape. But institutions would always have a creative tension fostering healthy competition for better performance. Any rumor otherwise simply have no credence.”
