The Pakistan government recently responded to Indian Lt Gen Upendra Dwivedi’s statements on taking back PoK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir), labelling it “delusional mindset”. The development came just hours before Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif appointed Lt Gen Asim Munir as Pakistan’s new army chief. The Pakistan army took to its Twitter and called Indian Lt Gen’s statement as “unwanted”.

An enraged and agitated Pakistani army took to its Twitter handle and issued a strong worded stance on the issue of Pakistan occupied Kashmir. “The unwarranted statement of a high-ranking Indian Army Officer concerning Azad Jammu and Kashmir is an apt manifestation of Indian Armed Forces’ delusional mindset and showcases the vivid imprint of domestic political showboating on Indian military thought”, the statement read.

The Pakistan Army also alleged “gross human rights violations against innocents” by Indian army. “…The fallacious remarks and unfounded allegations of so called “launch-pads” and “terrorists” are an attempt to divert attention from Indian Army’s repressive use of force and gross human rights violations against innocent,” the statement further read.

Earlier, Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi, the general officer commanding-in-chief of the Northern Command reacted to Indian Defence minister’s on retrieving parts of PoK and said, “As far as the Indian Army is concerned, it will carry out any order given by the government of India. We are always ready for it.”
