    Pakistan Aggressively Warns India: Do Not Test Our Nuclear Military Power
    Ben Brown 30/04/2019

    CCN.com: Pakistan’s military spokesman has warned India that any threat will be met with the full force of its nuclear arsenal.

    In a press conference on Monday, Major General Asif Ghafoor hit back against Indian prime minister Narendra Modi who recently threatened Pakistan with the “mother of all nuclear bombs”:

    “In your [Indian] rhetoric, you keep using nuclear power as a threat… Nuclear powers are not a threat, they are a weapon of deterrence that should not be mentioned lightly…Do not test our resolve.”



    India: “the mother of all nuclear bombs”
    Pakistan’s warning comes after a string of aggressive threats from Indian prime minister Modi. Earlier this April, Modi threatened Pakistan with military action:

    “We have the mother of nuclear bombs. I decided to tell [Pakistan], do whatever you want to do but we will retaliate.”

    Days later, on the campaign trail for re-election, Modi doubled down on the nuclear threat. He warned that India’s nukes were not just “for Diwali,” implying that he’s prepared to use the country’s extensive nuclear firepower against neighboring Pakistan.



    Nuclear posturing or real threat?
    The nuclear threat between India and Pakistan has ramped up in recent months. Following a terrorist attack that killed 40 Indian personnel, New Delhi ordered an airstrike within Pakistan territory.

    Pakistan responded by lining up fighter jets at the border, while India stockpiled an arsenal of weaponry and tested a space missile.

    In the last month, the tension has turned nuclear with both sides threatening its nuclear supremacy. The heightened rhetoric likely comes as India’s prime minister battles for re-election.



    India vs Pakistan: nuclear power compared
    Pakistan has the edge over India in terms of nuclear weaponry. According to the Arms Control Association, Pakistan commands 145 nuclear warheads to India’s 135.

    Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is specifically designed to protect itself against the Indian threat. Most of Pakistan’s nuclear weaponry are Tactical Nuclear Weapons (TNWs). These are smaller than traditional nukes, but hyper-designed for close-counter ground battles. In other words, they’re specifically built for use against India.

    Pakistan: “we were not involved” in suicide attack
    Major General Asif Ghafoor also reiterated that Islamabad was not involved in the Pulwama terrorist attack that killed 40 Indians in February. The attack sparked the current bout of nuclear threats.

    “We told them we were not involved… India then violated our airspace, we then gave the ultimatum that we will respond when we see fit. Two months have passed since and India has told countless lies on the matter. We have not responded to the lies, not because we can’t, but because we don’t want to retaliate.”

    Ghafoor said, contrary to New Delhi’s claims, that India’s airstrikes were completely ineffective:

    “International media came to Pakistan, we told them that they should go to the place and see for themselves what had happened. India had said that 300 people had died in their attack [in Balakot]. Then they said that they had used a small-scale missile that bore a tiny hole in the ceiling of the building and then exploded inside. We again offered to show your own [Indian] media the site.”

    As India enters its third week of elections, expect more bombastic retorts from incumbent prime minister Modi.

    how do you know they do not have access to American facilities? do you not know that Israeli and American scientists are interchangeable? then why can the testing facilities not be shared?

    even the Israeli Ambassador to the USA is an American

    What a load of horseshit this is! Ignorant author forgot 2 Indian planes being shot down in response as well as 6 ground targets?? Then he titles it "Pakistan aggressively" as if Pakistan is the belligerent one! Here are the two statements:

    Modi:
    ISPR:
    Who is the aggressor?

    There are no testing facilities to test a nuclear device.. there are only tests in the open.. that is why I've always supposed that these nukes are either a bluff or have been handed to Usrael by the US and other Western powers..

    what a difference a day made, before feb 27th Indian were saying their conventional capability is enough to destroy Pakistan they don't need nukes for that....and now nuclear threats cause they have nothing else to make a threat with.

    PAKISTAN has FAR FAR FAR more nukes than the world could ever imagine. Let's just say, if india learned of the actual numbers, india aur uskay baap ki bundain phat jaain gi...There is a very good reason as to why Pakistan is the ONLY country in the world that the u.s. has ever had to apologize to back in 2012.

    I'ma leave it at that!

    In the « about » part of their website it is written :

    ———————————

    they are unbiased, but only for financial news. The rest seems to follow Code of Ethics of Norwegian Press.

    Yes a 10 years old child will be brainwashed by this kind of news @Rollno21. But people who will cross check facts and events will understand what is the problem and who is aggressor. Even then, it will depends on the honesty of those people how they will explain to others : democracy has to let Kashmiris to choose if they want to be attached to Pakistan or India or being independent. It was their right which was confiscated by India. So yes I suppose you were referring to Indians.

    Are you the author of this? You're about as ignorant as him, if not more. This thread is about the nuclear weapon usage not the boogeyman you're worried about.

    Seems they are not even trying to hide their bias in this case.
