Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf in a recent statement at the press conference said that India could completely destroy Pakistan with 20 bombs in case if Islamabad decides to launch a single nuclear attack on the neighbouring country.
Karachi-based newspaper Dawn quoted Musharraf as saying that: “Indian and Pakistan relations have again reached a dangerous level. There will be no nuclear attack. If we would attack India with one atomic bomb, then the neighbouring country could finish us by attacking with 20 bombs.
Then the only solution is that we should first attack them with 50 atom bombs so that they cannot hit us with 20 bombs. Are you ready to first launch an attack with 50 bombs?”
Addressing the reporters at the press conference in UAE, Pakistan’s former president further said, adding that if India launched any scathing attack in Kashmir, Pakistan could immediately react in other areas in Sindh and Punjab and “could teach them a lesson”.
His remark comes over a week after the terror attack that ended 40 CRPF personnel’s lives in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, which was claimed by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
He also added that Israel wanted to build a kinship with Pakistan. The chief of All-Pakistan Muslim League (APML), living in the UAE, said he is all set to return to Pakistan as he sees the political environment in his country completely favourable.
“According to my opinion, the political environment is good and favourable. Half of the ministers are mine. Law minister and the attorney general were my lawyers,” Musharraf added in a statement.
Musharraf took over in the year 1999 after a military coup that got rid of the former President Nawaz Sharif. After being served as president for over 9 years, he was removed from power when Mr Sharif came to power.
