- Rajnath had said, ‘Pakistan wants to break our country through anti-India activities’
Pakistan has turned red after India’s Defense Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement of giving a befitting reply against the proxy war being spread by the Pakistan government and the army. Pakistan alleged that the BJP and the RSS were fomenting the sentiments of extremism to win the elections in UP and other states. Also promoting the agenda of Hindutva.
Pakistan Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmed said that Pakistan strongly condemns the baseless, unnecessary and provocative statements of Rajnath Singh. He claimed that it is the specialty of BJP that it misrepresents history. The spokesperson said that whenever elections are held in major states of India, such statements come to the fore.
‘Rajnath Singh’s hysterical statement of war’
Infuriated by Rajnath’s remarks on terrorists, Asim Iftikhar said, “BJP and RSS are desperate to win UP and other state elections and are instigating extremism and provoking the Hindutva agenda.” He said that Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh’s hysterical statement of war shows irresponsible behavior of India towards Pakistan.
The Pakistani spokesperson claimed that his country is fully prepared to respond to any aggressive action by India. He said that BJP leaders are advised to refrain from any action against Pakistan and stop dragging Pakistan for electoral gains in the domestic politics of the country. Earlier, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh had strongly attacked Pakistan in a program on 12 December.
