Pakistan confirms 221 cross border violations by India

Since the BJP came into power in India the tensions with its nuclear rival Pakistan have risen.

Pakistan's Senate’s Standing Committee on Defence on Friday condemned Indian aggression and ceasefire violations across the Line of Control in the divided state of Jammu Kashmir and Working Boundary with Pakistan. The committee adopted the resolution unanimously taking strong exception of India's aggressive stance and military violations across the Line of Control and the Working Boundary. Ever since Narendra Modi took over as the prime minister, India’s statements and actions had become aggressive, jingoistic and war-like, the committee observed.

It said that the Modi government was boasting about Indian role in the dismemberment of Pakistan in 1971, openly admitting covert operation against Pakistan using terrorists as instrument of policy and going to the extent of threatening a ‘limited war’ against Pakistan.

It further observed that aggressive and unwarranted stance comes at a time when the entire Pakistani nation, soldiers and civilians alike, was united in combating terrorism and extremism. Since 9/11, Pakistan is the biggest victim of terrorism having lost over 50 thousand precious lives in the struggle to combat, contain and crush terrorism, according to the resolution.
The committee strongly felt that enduring peace, security and stability in South Asia can only be attained when India abides by its commitment to the UN resolutions regarding the right to self- determination to the people of Jammu Kashmir. Earlier, the committee was informed that 221 cross border violations have been committed by the Indian forces in which 26 civilians have embraced martyrdom and 78 injured recently.

It was informed that Pakistan formation commanders sent 39 hotline messages at the brigade level to their counterparts in the Indian military but to no avail. Pakistan's response to the violations has been selective and effective, aiming to target military installations and abide by the Geneva Convention.
