Commodore (Retd) Ranjit B Rai on Thursday condemned the anti-India resolution passed by the Pakistan Senate and said that it reflected Islamabad’s frustration.
“It is a large frustration. Pakistan is under pressure on economic grounds. It is losing space in the world as the centre of terrorism. This incident in which India took part with our commandos shows that we have the capabilities,” Rai told ANI here.
“This has definitely rattled Pakistan and they are creating storm in tea cup. We are not saying that we are Myanmar. And Pakistan are not
happy with India’s position in the world as an emerging nation,” he added.
Earlier, the Pakistan Senate passed a unanimous resolution strongly condemning the recent provocative statements made by Indian leaders.
A Radio Pakistan report said the resolution, which was moved by Leader of the House Raja Zafarul Haq, said Pakistan rejects India’s hegemonic
The resolution further stated that the Senate emphasizes that Pakistan would never allow its territory to be violated by India under any
pretext, and that Pakistan’s armed forces are capable of issuing a befitting response to any such incursion, reports the Dawn.
It said that India’s statements confirmed Islamabad’s apprehensions about Indian intentions to destabilise the country, and that the
people of Pakistan should stand united with their armed forces to prevent this.
The Senate urged the international community to take notice of India’s provocative statements, which did not bode well for regional peace and
affected prospects of sovereignty and stability.
The resolution stated the Indian provocations which undermined Pakistan’s anti-terror campaign are also aiding and abetting
terrorists fighting in Pakistan.
Upon conclusion of the discussion, Raja Zafarul Haq said India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s statements are in conflict with the United Nations Charter.
He said India is, on one hand, needlessly exerting itself to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council while it continues thwarting the UN Charter by carrying out human rights violations in Kashmir.
The resolution was passed a day after top Pakistani government officials, including Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali, spoke out against recent Indian statements.
