Pakistan on Thursday strongly condemned the Indian Home Minister’s reported statement threatening so-called “surgical strikes” said, it will spare no effort in “resolutely thwarting any aggressive designs”.

“Pakistan condemns in strongest terms the irresponsible and provocative statement reportedly made by Indian Home Minister today threatening so-called “surgical strikes” in Pakistan,” Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said in a statement issued here.

“While Pakistan is a peace-loving country, we will spare no effort in resolutely thwarting any aggressive designs,” he stressed.

The Spokesperson recalled that Pakistan’s swift response to India’s Balakot misadventure in 2019, including the downing of Indian combat aircraft and capture of Indian Air Force pilot, fully demonstrated the will, capacity, and preparedness of “our armed forces to deter Indian aggression”.

“This delusional statement only goes to further demonstrate the BJP-RSS combine’s propensity to stoke regional tensions for both ideological reasons and political expediency, based on enmity towards Pakistan,” he added

“Such statements also serve as smokescreens to divert world attention from India’s state-terrorism and systematic human rights violations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), and against Muslims and other minorities in India,” the Spokesperson remarked.
