Former Indian CJ acknowledges Pakistan’s nuclear might, warns Modi
NEW DELHI: Former Indian Supreme Court chief justice (CJ) Markunday Katju has warned the Modi government from attacking Pakistan, a nuclear power of the region, in the wake of Pulwama incident.
“Not to even think of any so called military strike against Pakistan’s armed forces are well on their guard at the borders and the Line of Control (LoC),” Markunday said in an interview to Indian Tv.
He said Indian leadership always fooled its citizen over the Kashmir issue and, “It’s true that the Kashmiri youth are now standing armed against India over its unrealistic and oppressive policies in the valley.
Tension between India and Pakistan is on the rise with every passing day, as the Indian side continuing to accuse Pakistan over its alleged hand in Pulwama attack.
He also warned the BJP government that Pakistan will retaliate promptly If India tries any misadventure
On 14 February 2019, a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu Srinagar National Highway was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at Lethpora in the Pulwama district of India-Ocuupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The attack resulted in the death of more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel and the attacker. The responsibility for the attack was claimed by the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed. A local youth named Adil Ahmed Dar was identified as the attacker.
Indian media and politicians have since been blaming Pakistan for the attack without any evidence.
