Pak army chief warns India: Nobody should dare cast an evil eye on us

In an apparent respone to India's aggressive counter-insurgency rhetoric, Pakistan's Army Chief General Raheel Sharif has warned that no one should dare to cast an evil eye on his country.

Presiding over a formation commanders' conference held at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Wednesday, General Sharif, recounting the successes of security forces in the ongoing operation against terrorists, said terrorists have been dislodged from their strongholds in North Waziristan and the Khyber Tribal Agency, and the fight was now moving into the last few terrorist pockets close to the Afghan border.

"The forum took serious notice of the recent Indian hostile rhetoric coupled with covert and overt actions to destabilise Pakistan," an ISPR release said, in an unusually strong statement.

According to a tweet from ISPR Director General Major-General Asim Saleem Bajwa, the army chief said Pakistan is the most resilient nation in the world which would emerge victorious against all challenges, and warned that "none should dare to cast an evil eye on Pakistan."

The statement said the conference termed as "highly regrettable" the fact that Indian politicians not only indulge in actions that are in violation of the United Nations' Charter but also take pride in claiming their interference in the internal affairs of other States.

"The forum reiterated its resolve to defeat their designs and defend the territorial integrity of Pakistan at any cost with a befitting response to any misadventure against the country," the ISPR statement said.

Pakistan has strongly condemned Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement in Bangladesh where he not only accused Islamabad of spreading terrorism in India but also admitted that New Delhi had played a part in the break-up of Pakistan in 1971.

"Those who are contemplating any kind on adventure in Pakistan must know that they will get a bloody face in the process," Pakistan's interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said in a statement on Wednesday.
