Earlier today, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor warned India of retaliation if it chooses to attack Pakistan or opt for any sort of aggression against the country.
Addressing a press conference, DG ISPR responded to India’s war threats after the February 14 Pulwama attack by saying that India has this habit of blaming Pakistan after terror attacks in Occupied Kashmir or in its own territory without evidence but if the eastern neighbour tries to initiate war Pakistan’s valiant “forces won’t be surprised but will surprise you (India)”.
Recalling the history of bilateral relations between two arch-rivals since the creation of Pakistan in 1947, the DG mentioned multiple Indian misadventures from time to time on the country’s eastern border.
