Director-General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar while speaking to Geo News’ Hamid Mir on the programme Capital Talk on Wednesday said warned India that any military adventurism by India will be met with “uncontrollable and unintended consequences”, cautioning the neighbouring nation to “not play with fire”.
Babar Iftikhar said India has faced great embarrassments on several fronts “This year alone, 1,229 ceasefire violations have taken place, seven civilians have been martyred and more than 90 have been injured. Many times, their quadcopters have intruded on our side [of the LoC] and in the past, we have downed some of them, and it has been covered in the media.”
“Despite this, senior Indian military leadership talks about an alleged intrusion from different launchpads, which I think leaves a question mark on their capabilities — despite such a well-guarded LoC and counter-infiltration measures, how can someone infiltrate one of the most militarized zones in the world?”
He went on to say that the artillery deployed by the Indian military during the past few days was in civilian populations so that, in case of counter-bombardment, it would target Kashmiris living in the occupied valley.
Maj-Gen Iftikhar said that India has border issues with many of its neighbours including China, Bhutan and Nepal.
He went on to say that India faced great humiliation in the recent military standoff with China, The Modi government faced embarrassment in map issues with Nepal as well. “India is meddling in issues where it doesn’t even have a border.”
Maj-Gen while commenting on the International Day for Innocent Children Victims of Aggression, which will be celebrated tomorrow (June 4), said: “Looking at this through this lens, thousands of children and young people are becoming targets of Indian pellet guns in occupied Kashmir.”
He said that Indian security forces, in an effort to squash dissent, were killing young Kashmiris and not handing over the dead bodies to the families.
The DG ISPR said the Indian steps in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir have backfired. He said the whole world is witnessing the worst human rights violations in the occupied territory.
