Pakistan Minister Warns Of Nuclear War With India To Stifle Opposition

Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, Pakistan's railways minister, warned political rivals not to oppose the government as, in his opinion, there is a real threat of war with India at this juncture, which he said would inevitable culminate into a nuclear war. The trigger for Ahmed's latest N-salvo was a call by Maulana Fazlur Rehman for a march on Islamabad in a bid to pile pressure on Prime Minister Imran Khan to resign. Ahmed has spoken far more than the country's defence, home, and foreign ministers put together on issues of national security, defence, and foreign policy since India nullified the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5.
