New Delhi: Issuing a strong condemnation of Pakistan defense minister's inflammatory statement, an Indian defense expert has lambasted Islamabad for spouting war threats despite its defeats at the hand of India.
Launching a vitriolic verbal attack on India, Pakistan Defense Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif yesterday threatened of 'heavy losses' that 'they would remember for decades' if India tried to impose war on Pak.
"If India tries to impose war on Pakistan, heavy losses will be inflicted on India which it will remember for decades," the minister said.
Talking to the ANI, Defence expert Major General (retired) SR Sinho reprimanded Pakistan for issuing statements like these saying, "I am shocked and surprised that the Defence Minister of Pakistan has made a statement that if a war like 1965 takes place, India will have to suffer the consequences, much worse than what had happened in 1965".
Sinho said that Pakistan was talking out of its head and should keep in mind its defeats when dealing with New Delhi.
"Pakistan is talking out of their head. They don`t have any sense. They don`t see the history what has happened... They should read the history and keep it at the back of their mind when dealing with India," he added while talking to the ANI.
It is not the first time Pakistan has spouted such threats.
Pakistani National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz too, has in past boasted that Pak is a nuke power and will retort strongly to India.
Pak defense minister's comments come in the backdrop of heightened tensions along the border and LoC after Pakistan called off NSA-level talks set for August 23 when India made it clear that discussions on Kashmir and a meeting with separatists will not be acceptable.
