This has reference to your editorial Nuclear Threats published in the November edition whether the threat of our Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa creates a furore in the hearts of powers-that-be of Pakistan is not of much importance. Regarding nuclear weapons both the neighbouring countries must show utmost restraint even in making official statements like that of our Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa. Such bravado will not serve any purpose in the long run. We should not forget that Pakistan is a troublebearing country infested with deadly terrorists and the notorious ISI. They will not hesitate to avenge any threat from our side.
To keep the environment politically stable in the Indian sub-continent, politicians as well as military personnel should restrain themselves from making sabre-rattling statements. However there is no harm in making India strong militarily as well as keeping its nuclear facilities in readiness which will serve as a strong deterrent against our warmongering neighbour.
