The Indian subcontinent is witnessing one of the most tense period in the recent times after the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed in a powerful IED blast on the National Highway 1A on February 14. Exactly 7 days after the attack, both Pakistani and Indian leadership are engaged in war of words. Immediately after Pulwama attack, PM Narendra Modi had announced that the Indian armed forces have been given a ‘free hand.’ However, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s 6-minute-long speech has just added to the fire.
In a video message, five days after the Pulwama terror attack, Khan responded to the India's allegations on Pakistan's involvement in the suicide strike carried out by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror group that left 40 CRPF personnel dead. He said that only a stupid person will think of war. Khan, in a nationally televised address on Tuesday, demanded India to give “actionable evidence” and that Pakistan would retaliate if attacked. He said that India is in habit of blaming Islamabad for everything. However, New Delhi slammed Khan for repeating the script written by the Pakistan Army.
