Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan highlights the possibility of Nuclear War in an Interview with Al-Jazeera

Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan recently said in an interview with a Pakistani News Channel Al-Jazeera that if India & Pakistan indulge in any war, then it will go nuclear. 

The chances of a war initiating between India & Pakistan have been alleging for quite a while now. The events being credited for the same are the abrogation of Article 370 from the Indian constitution & making Jammu & Kashmir as a union territory of India. Article 370 gave special status to the state of J&K. After the section was repealed, Pakistani leaders and activists have started to threaten India about the consequences and show unreasonable concerns towards the people of Kashmir.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan showed his discomfort stating that there was no question of talking to New Delhi after India has revoked the special status of J&K. He warned about the possibility of a conventional war with India that will have impacts beyond the subcontinent.

To support his argument he said, “So that’s why we have approached the United Nations. We are approaching every international forum possible and asking them that they must act right now.” 

He said in an interview with the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera TV news channel. There have been several threats and hints from Pakistan that they will soon indulge in a war with the nation. In the interview with Al-Jazeera, he also said, “When two nuclear-armed countries fight, if they fight a conventional war, then there is every possibility that it is going to end up as a nuclear war. The unthinkable.”

Pakistani PM’s comment on the possibility of war between the India and Pakistan is being considered as an attempt of PM Imran Khan to attract international attention on the matter relating to the Kashmir issue and seeking the world community to offer mediation in what India quotes it as a ‘bilateral dispute’.

However, to save himself from any controversies, he defended himself saying Pakistan will never be the first country to start a war.

“I am a pacifist, I am an anti-war person. If say Pakistan, God forbid, we are fighting a conventional war, we are losing, and if a country is stuck between the choice: you surrender or you fight till death for your freedom, I know Pakistanis will fight to the death for their freedom.” He added

As reported by Times of India, Imran Khan expressed his disappointment during the interview regarding the global responses being in India’s favour. “Unfortunately, because of this whole big market thing, global governments look upon India as a one billion people market. However, they don’t realize that if they don’t intervene right now, it will impact not only the subcontinent but the world’s trade, affecting everyone,” he said.

Imran Khan shared his views in the interview, just a day after he claimed to have support from 58 countries UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council) regarding opposing India to retaliate the forces from Kashmir. The tweet read, “I commend the 58 countries that joined Pakistan in Human Rights Council on 10 Sept reinforcing demands of int community for India to stop the use of force, lift the siege, remove other restrictions, respect & protect Kashmiris’ rights & resolve Kashmir dispute through UNSC resolutions.”

The tweet was factually wrong as the UNHRC has only 47 member countries and not 58. 

However, in spite of the unreasonable exaggeration by Pakistan about Kashmir, some of the mutually favouring & Muslim influential nations have asked Pakistan to adopt backchannel diplomacy & tone down their rhetorics.

Particularly back-channel diplomacy is a method of indulging in kind of an informal [diplomatic] conversation between two parties, not directly but with the involvement of a third-party. The third party plays a mutual and ideally unbiased role to convey the messages.

As reported by Economic Times, Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir and UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Al-Nahyan had travelled together to Islamabad on September 3 and asked Pakistan to engage in backchannel diplomacy with India.

Khan also accused India of trying to suppress Pakistan under financial depression them through international tactics. He told about how the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has blacklisted Pakistan.

“If Pakistan is pushed into the blacklist of FATF, it means there will be sanctions on Pakistan. So they were trying to economically bankrupt us, and hence, it is when we pulled back. This is where we realized that this government is on an agenda, an agenda to push Pakistan to financial disaster,” he explained to the interviewer.

On a similar note, recently a group of 15 Pakistani Delegations Member led by Pakistan’s Economic Affairs Minister, Hammad Azhar put efforts to convince the Asia-Pacific joint group of FATF regarding why they Pakistan should not be blacklisted at the Paris Review. The Paris Review is going to be held from October 16-18.

Pakistan’s allegation on India regarding Kashmir issue has not been backed by many nations around the world at UN or other groups of countries, either collectively or individually. This is because everyone around the world knows that India is rightful in the scenario & has all the authorities to make decisions regarding the amendment of the constitution. No one supports the baseless arguments of Pakistan. 

One of the major reasons for the same is that the country has bagged a reputation of a terrorist nation around the world already by housing multiple terror groups which operate in India, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, America and other nations of the world. Many of these terrorist groups have base camps AKA Terror Launch Pads in POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) which were destroyed by India during one surgical strike and one Air Strike.

However, as per the inputs of Indian intelligence, Pakistan has reactivated seven terror launch pads and several other terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir recently. This could be taken as a threat of a possible terror attack.

    benches, packed in a very box with the detachable legs stored
    inside. The idea for this indoor play centre came once the Wilikie brothers tied a
    rope towards the roof of an factory roof and slid down it into bales of hay.
