De­fence Min­is­ter Khawaja Muham­mad Asif on Sun­day vis­ited In­dian fir­ing hit-Kun­dun­pur vil­lage in Sialkot and pledged to give be­fit­ting re­sponse to In­dia. While talk­ing to media, Khawaja Asif has said armed forces will de­fend ev­ery inch of their mother­land at ev­ery cost. The Min­is­ter said if In­dia tried to im­pose war on Pak­istan, heavy losses will be in­flicted on In­dia which it will re­mem­ber for decades. He said cow­ardly acts by the In­dian forces have strength­ened the de­ter­mi­na­tion of the na­tion to de­fend its mother­land. He said In­dia s real face is ex­pos­ing as it is sup­port­ing ter­ror­ism in Pak­istan and cre­at­ing ten­sion on borders through un­pro­voked fir­ing along the work­ing bound­ary and line of con­trol. He said In­dia is di­vert­ing at­ten­tion from its in­ter­nal fail­ures by cre­at­ing ten­sion on the borders. Khawaja Asif said sac­ri­fices of the shuhada will not go waste. He said civil­ians were se­verely in­jured in the un­pro­voked fir­ing by the In­dian bor­der forces. He said Pak­istan has proofs of In­dia s in­ter­fer­ence in Pak­istan. He said the Prime Min­is­ter will present at the United Na­tions Gen­eral Assem­bly meet­ing in Septem­ber this year. Prime Min­is­ter will also present these proofs to the US lead­er­ship dur­ing his Amer­ica visit in Oc­to­ber this year.
