Nukes are only to be used in the situation where the integrity of Pakistan is under threat (e.g. Islamabad being captured), but since Indians are incapable of waging large-scale war the chances of that happening is very low
not necessarily. given the piss poor performance of the indian military from february to date, they can't pose any conventional challenge to Pakistan even on a limited scale. this incompetence exists in their nuclear forces as well. When the war starts, just overwhelm them and end them once and for all. We can always tell the world that they were going to launch so we launched first...remove this cancer called india from the face of the earth once & for all.

No, the best way of dealing with India is to promoting infighting and splintering, leading to eventual dissolution.

Yes they are incompetent, but if even a single nuke hits Pakistan the damage will be catastrophic, if they do miss then the potential for fallout being blown back acrosss the border could still have all kinds of effects.

Just PR to make Pakistan look like the more mature nation between the two. But when push comes to shove, Pakistan will overwhelm india with nukes before india could even get to ready a missile to launch...rest assured.
Aren’t you at least a little worried that India might have second strike capability?

I ask this question as an outsider who is not familiar with the second strike capabilities of Pakistan or India

We too have second strike capability...besides, they sunk or severely damaged their second strike capability by leaving the hatch door open. :lol:

No, these kids are not worry at all cause most of them don't even live in Pakistan, and war for them is like a COD game which they think they will restart if they failed .

Foreign office has already clarified that there is no change in nuclear use policy of Pakistan and PM IK statement is being distorted and misinterpreted, out of context, by certain foreign media.

There is absolutely no benefit in showing your cards to the enemy, let them guessing and fearing what you might do. Once you let them know what you might do or not do, you are not only limiting your options but also helping the enemy in strategizing their next moves.

PM Khan: Pakistan would not use nuclear weapons first, amid tensions with India

Asif Shahzad

SEPTEMBER 2, 2019

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan would not use nuclear weapons first, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday, amid tensions with arch-rival India after New Delhi revoked the special status of its part of the disputed Kashmir region.

“We both are nuclear-armed countries. If these tensions increase, the world could be in danger,” Khan said, addressing members of the Sikh religious community in the eastern city of Lahore. “There will be no first from our side ever,” he said.

The foreign ministry’s spokesman subsequently said on Twitter that the comments were being taken out of context and did not represent a change in Pakistan’s nuclear policy.

“PM was simply reiterating Pakistan’s commitment to peace and the need for both nuclear states to demonstrate responsible behaviour,” spokesman Mohammad Faisal said on his official Twitter account.

Tension remains high in Kashmir, where security forces have used tear gas against stone-throwing protesters and the valley remains under lockdown after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to withdraw special rights for the Muslim-majority state on Aug. 5.

By stripping Indian-controlled Kashmir of its special status, New Delhi blocked the region’s right to frame its own laws and allowed non-residents to buy property there. Delhi said the change would help Kashmir’s development, to the benefit of all, but its move angered many residents of the region and was strongly condemned by Pakistan.

Khan has so far focused on a global diplomatic campaign condemning India’s actions, accusing Modi of committing human rights violations and atrocities in the valley.

He has also said frequently that any misadventure between two nuclear-armed nations could endanger the world.

Muslim-majority Kashmir has long been a flashpoint between India and Pakistan. Both countries rule parts of Kashmir while claiming it in full. Two of the three wars they have fought have been over it.

Also on Monday, Islamabad gave a consular access to an Indian who was given a death sentence for spying by a Pakistani military court, which the International Court of Justice asked Pakistan to review in mid-July.

“Pursuant to the decision of the International Court of Justice, Pakistan provided consular access on 02 September, 2019 to India for Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav, Indian spy, serving Indian Naval officer,” a Pakistani foreign office statement said.

The statement said that at India’s request, there was no restriction on the language of communication and the access was recorded, which continued for two hours.

An Indian external affairs ministry statement said “Jadhav appeared to be under extreme pressure to parrot a false narrative to bolster Pakistan’s untenable claims.” It said Delhi would wait for a detailed report to determine the extent of conformity to the ICJ directives.

I may not always agree with all views held by another, but I still have to accept that we are all individuals, and some differences will always exists. In the end, it's the big picture and important views that matter.

I suggest people watch the video posted in #7 before letting words be taken out of context or even be wrongfully reported, which is evidently expected from some media sources.

Just in case anyone is still wondering, based on the main parts of Prime Minister Imran Khan's speech, he made no such statement that could clearly be used in the same sense as the headline for the article suggests. I also see no reason why such a thing would be said outside of the main breadth of the speech, as that would be nothing less than absurd.

Basic common sense suggests interests are usually paramount, and intelligent people should not believe otherwise in any matter, unless proven otherwise.

I believe that your suggestion would most probably fall on deaf ears. I have gathered that a substantial numbers of Pakistani posters have totally lost their minds, these days, and, they are saying, whatever comes into their minds, with total disregard to the reality of the current situation and circumstances, which Pakistan is facing. Their opinions are, more often than not, totally mind blowing, outlandish and grossly detached from the reality. These people totally fail to realize and recognize the limitations and constraints, under which Pakistan has to make and implement policies, regarding its conflict with India.

Sadly, this appears to be case with most people at the current moment, and can in more ways than one be linked to the social media phenomenon and other forms of popular media in general.

There was an interesting legal case from many years ago, which if I recall correctly, showed that the media, and newspapers in particular, owe no duty of care or trust towards the general public.

You guys do realize what has happened here right? shining india has gone down the fascist sh!thole that everyone in the world is viewing india as while Pakistan is being viewed as that shining phoenix that has risen from the ashes of 15 years of war against terrorism that has the moral higher ground to say that Pakistan won't use nukes first.

OF COURSE we'll use nukes first but notice how we have turned the tables of perception on the "shining" india...
