RAWALINDI—Mus­lim Con­fer­ence (MC) and Pak­istan Tehreek In­saaf (PTI) on Monday an­nounced di­vi­sion of 17 AJK Assem­bly seats out of to­tal 29.

The an­nounce­ment was made jointly in a presser here by MC and PTI chiefs Sar­dar At­tique Ahmed Khan and Bar­ris­ter Sul­tan Mehmood Chaudhry. Ac­cord­ing to the seats di­vi­sion for­mula six seats went to MC while 11 to PTI.

AJK par­lia­ment com­prises Assem­bly [29 seats] and Kash­mir Coun­cil [12 seats, six in­di­rectly elected and six nom­i­nated from among par­lia­ment of Pak­istan]. died on April 26. Za­far Ak­bar Butt along with Sikh leader Naren­der Singh Khalsa at­tended the con­do­lence meet­ing held in mem­ory of Aman­ul­lah Khan.

Pay­ing glow­ing trib­utes to Aman­ul­lah Khan, Za­far the con­tin­ued de­ten­tion of Mo­ham­mad Yasin Ma­lik and said that the re-ar­rest of Yasin Ma­lik had again ex­posed the real face of In­dia. Sikh leader, Naren­der Singh Khalsa also paid trib­utes to Aman­ul­lah Khan.— KMS Cold Start doc­trine and Is­lam­abad fo­cussing on de­vel­op­ing Tac­ti­cal Nu­clear weapons (TNW) also known as a non-strate­gic nu­clear weapon.

To quote In­dia To­day; the goal of the Cold War doc­trine, “is to es­tab­lish the ca­pac­ity to launch a re­tal­ia­tory con­ven­tional strike against Pak­istan that would in­flict sig­nif­i­cant harm on the Pak­istan Army be­fore the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity could in­ter­cede. And at the same time, pur­sue nar­row enough aims to deny Is­lam­abad a jus­ti­fi­ca­tion to es­ca­late the clash to the nu­clear level. Ac­cord­ing to the Cold Start Doc­trine, Bat­tle Groups will be well for­ward from ex­ist­ing gar­risons.

In­dia’s elite strike forces will no longer sit idle wait­ing for the op­por­tune mo­ment, giv­ing Pak­istan the lux­ury of time.” The Tac­ti­cal nu­clear weapon de­vised by Pak­istan is seen as a de­ter­rent against the Cold Start. Th­ese small nu­clear weapons eas­ily trans­portable can be used in bat­tle­fields, and some of them have the po­ten­tial of caus­ing greater de­struc­tion. This could spark a fullfledged nu­clear war be­tween In­dia and Pak­istan. It is high time for the world to rise to the clar­ion call and save the sub-con­ti­nent from a nu­clear holo­caust.
