After Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, it was time for its Railway Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad to threaten India with dire consequences if anyone tries to look at the Islamic nation. "Imran Khan has sent out a clear message. If anyone tries to look at Pakistan with evil in their minds, their eyes will be gouged out. Na phir chidiya chechaayengi, na mandiro mein ghantiya bajegi (Neither will birds chirp, nor will bells ring at the temples after that)," Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said in a video addressÂ on Tuesday while speaking on Pulwama terror attack.
Ahmadâ€™s threat came soon after Imran Khan on Tuesday assured India that action would be taken against the perpetrators of the Pulwama attack if New Delhi shares "actionable intelligence", but warned against any retaliatory action on his country.
In a video message to the nation, Khan responded to the Indian allegations on Pakistan's involvement in the attack in Kashmir on last on Thursday. The suicide attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror group left 40 CRPF personnel dead.

Stating that Pakistan wants "stability in the region", Khan said, "If India has evidence or actionable intelligence, they should give it to us and we will take action."
Soon, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh hit back at Imran Khan, warning him that if the Pakistan Prime Minister cannot arrest Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar, India will do that. "Dear Imran Khan," Amarinder Singh tweeted, "you have Jaish chief Masood Azhar sitting in Bahawalpur and masterminding the attacks with ISI help." "Go pick him up from there. If you can't, let us know, we'll do it for you."
"What has been done about the proofs of Mumbaiâ€™s 26/11 attack?" asked Amarinder Singh in his tweet.
"Time to walk the talk."
On Monday, Punjab's lawmakers decided to donate one month's salary each to the next of kin of the martyred CRPF soldiers. The Punjab Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution, moved by Congress MLA Parminder Singh Pinki, to donate to the martyrs' families.
A Jaish terrorist rammed a vehicle laden with explosives into a CPRF convoy on Srinagar-Jammu national highway around 3.15 pm on February 14, killing as many as 40 CRPF personnel.
A day after the attack, the Centre withdrew 'Most Favoured Nation' status granted to Pakistan and called for "international isolation" of the neighbouring country.
Over 48 countries have come out in support of India and condemned the dastardly terror attack.
