Our bombs can destroy India all the way to North East without harming Muslims: Pak Minister

Pakistan Railway Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has threatened India with a nuclear war. In an interview to a television channel, Sheikh Rasheed admitted that the Indian Army is far superior to the Pakistan Army in conventional warfare. Therefore, Pakistan could lose in a conventional war with India. In such a situation, Pakistan may resort to nuclear war.

He claimed that their bombs are so perfect and precise that they can destroy India all the way up to Assam, but Muslims do not need to worry as they will be safe. Sheikh Rasheed’s statement comes at a time when Pakistan and India have ongoing chaos over the Kashmir issue. Islamabad has cut down bilateral ties after it protested strongly over New Delhi’s decision to scrap Article 370 that gave special powers to people in Jammu and Kashmir.

This is not the first time that Sheikh Rasheed has threatened India with tactical nuclear weapons. In September 2019, he boasted about Pakistan having nuclear weapons as small as 125-250 grams that will destroy only a targeted area.

The Pakistani minister exults the recent attacks in India’s Jamia Milia, Shaheen Bagh, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh and Bengaluru orchestrated by Islamists. He stated that the Muslims had achieved tremendous results out of these riots. The minister said that Muslims do not forget their ‘insult’ and sooner or later they seek revenge. He mentioned how three Muslims youths came out in the open and set police stations on fire in Bangalore. He further said that soon thousands of Muslims hit the streets and rioted across the city, all this to revenge the insult of Prophet Muhammad.

The minister also added that the Muslims in India are always praying for the prosperity of Pakistan. During the course of the interview, the Pakistan Minister reiterated that if India at all attacks Pakistan, then this would be the last and an extremely lethal and bloody war as Pakistan will launch a nuclear war against India.

Chaos between Islamabad and New Delhi grew worse since India cancelled provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. However, India has maintained that the decision is its internal matter.
