Going to Pakistan is like going to hell: Manohar Parrikar

Rewari: A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi openly came out in support of "freedom" for Balochistan and "Pakistan-occupied Kashmir", Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday equated Pakistan to hell.

He added that since Pakistan has failed to inflict major damage, it is looking to inflict smaller wounds, reported CNN-IBN.

Parrikar, who was in Haryana`s Rewari to participate in `Jara Yaad Karo Qurbaani` programme, said, "Yesterday, our soldiers sent back five terrorists. Going to Pakistan is the same as going to hell."

"Pakistan has always been promoting terrorism. Now sometimes, even it is bearing the consequences of terrorism," he added.

 

Parrikar also said that if anybody decides to attack India, the country will not remain silent.

He said that the Indian soldiers will give a befitting reply to every attack.

The minister added that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) is a part of India and the violation of human rights should stop in Balochistan.

Modi's references to Balochistan and Pakistani Kashmir had not gone down well with Pakistan.

 

Pakistan's Foreign Policy Advisor Sartaj Aziz said Modi was “only trying to divert world attention from the grim tragedy that has been unfolding in the Indian-occupied Kashmir over the past five weeks”.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry yesterday invited his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar to visit Islamabad for talks on Jammu and Kashmir.
