Pakistan signaled that it could consider chocking India’s supply lines near the Line of Control if the latter did not ‘rein in’ its troops committing ceasefire violations.
The threat was conveyed during a conversation between the Directors General of Military Operations of Pakistan and India over the telephone hotline. The conversation was held in the aftermath of targeting of a Pakistan Army’s vehicle along the Neelum River on LoC at Athmuqam. The vehicle fell into the Neelum River and four soldiers were drowned after the attack. The ISPR said it was a weekly hotline contact which usually happens every Tuesday.
In our opinion, DGMO Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza is on the right track because in this year India has committed record ceasefire violations since the two countries agreed to observe truce at the LoC and Working Boundary. Media reports claimed, “Over 580 incidents have been reported of ceasefire breaches this year which is higher than last year.”
Within this, we also warn Indian Government and military leadership that, it is correct the Armed forces of Pakistan are busy in the war against terrorism and extremism but have full capability to defend motherland and defeat Indian army in conventional battle field. We believe it’s in the interest of region and public of India to avoid any adventure because both countries are Atomic Powers and if any mishap occurs, next generations will pay.
India is playing with fire; continued LoC violations can lead the things out of control.
