Relations between India and Pakistan have taken a turn for the worse since the central government decided to revoke Article 370 that grants special status to the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
After downgrading diplomatic ties with India, Pakistan also suspended the Samjhauta Express and even banned the screening of Indian movies.
In a recent development, the Pakistan Army said that if there is an attempt by India to undertake any ‘misadventure’, then its response will be even stronger than that of February 27.
The statement was tweeted by Asif Ghafoor, Director General of Pakistan armed forces’ media wing Inter-Services Public Relations.

Thousands of Indian troops have failed to suppress just struggle of brave Kashmiris for decades. Current surge won’t succeed either.
The tweet came in response to a statement by Chinar Corps Commander Lt. Gen. Kanwal Jeet Singh Dhillon, during an interaction with reporters.
“Lately #Pak has been openly threatening about certain incidents in #Kashmir. Notwithstanding we’ll take care of all of them; let anyone come & try & disrupt the peace in valley, we will have him eliminated!”- #ChinarCorpsCdr#IndianArmy #commonCausePeace @SpokespersonMoD @adgpi pic.twitter.com/uOf3ZXGGt5— Chinar Corps – Indian Army (@ChinarcorpsIA) August 8, 2019
Earlier, Pakistan also challenged India’s move to revoke Article 370 at the UNSC and appealed the UN to intervene in the matter. This plea was rejected by the UN and it said that the Kashmir issue should be resolved bilaterally.
