Pakistan Army Warns of Response to India's Misadventure

Pakistan Army Warns of Response to India's Misadventure

Malik in a statement made these remarks while reacting against the statement of Indian army chief Gen Bipin Rawat that "government is looking at ways to bring madrasas in Kashmir under control as they are incorrectly informing students and spreading disinformation".

The state government's retort was in response to Rawat's statementthat schools in the state were teaching two maps - India's and Jammu and Kashmir's - to the students, which he said was radicalising youth.

He said General Rawat's comments were unbefitting of an army chief. I have no doubts on his professionalism. He said the initiative is being taken in view of the government capping at Rs. 10,000 per month the educational assistance it gives to children of martyrs or those disabled in action. "I don't think any society accepts sermons on education from non-academicians", Bukhari told the media on Saturday. Calling for overhaul of education in the State-run schools there, he said the Army is running goodwill schools to integrate children into mainstream and highlighted the need for opening more schools covered by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

"The only thing stopping them is our credible nuclear deterrence as there is no space for war between the two nuclear states", he said. If you are putting a map of Jammu and Kashmir, then you may as well put map of every state.

He was quoted by HT as saying, "I will be very happy if they do what they are supposed to do and leave us what we are supposed to do".

Trump denied in a pair of tweets on Friday that he made the comment , but referred to Haiti as a "very poor and troubled country". The reports prompted outrage and accusations of racism from people in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

"Army has its own role and let them play the same with utmost responsibility", added Bukhari.

He said Pakistan's nuclear technology was only to fight the menace of eastern border (along India). "If they do their job well, all problems will be solved".

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif warned that Indian army chief's statement amounted to invitation for nuclear encounter. What does it teach the children? The Army chief also expressed concern over campaign against security forces and the country on the social media in the State.

Speaking on the occasion, Altaf Bukhari said that book reading is a good habit and through this book exhibition, "we are trying to go back to the habit of book reading which is diminishing in this modern world full of technological innovations".
