Pakistan army chief General Raheel Sharif on Thursday accused India of spreading a “litany of falsehoods” and warned that any aggression or a “strategic miscalculation” against his country will not go unpunished.

“We have recently witnessed an unfortunate display of utter desperation” playing out inside Kashmir and along Line of Control through a “litany of falsehoods and distortion of facts by India”, Raheel said while addressing the passing out ceremony of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) cadets in Risalpur, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

“We expect international community to condemn Indian insinuations and fabrications about a nation that has made unparalleled contributions in the global fight against terrorism,” he said.

Raheel’s comments assume significance as they come amidst the strain in Indo-Pak ties after the Uri terror attack and India’s surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. Pakistan claims no surgical strikes have taken place.

“Any aggression, born out of deliberate intent or even a strategic miscalculation, will not be allowed to go unpunished and will be met with the most befitting response,” Raheel said.

“We will be highly relentless in defending our motherland against entire spectrum of threat. I am confident that with the united resolve of our nation and its armed forces, those inimical to regional peace will not be allowed to succeed. Their evil plots and plans will be defeated,” he said.

Raheel claimed that “enemies” of Pakistan’s peace and prosperity have been distressed by the sight of the country’s “successes”.

“These enemies will now attempt to accelerate their efforts to reverse our gains and derail our progress through direct and indirect strategy,” he asserted.

Raheel said Pakistan is a “responsible” country and claimed that it remains committed to following the policy of friendship with all other countries based on the principles of equality and mutual respect.

“While doing so, the armed forces of Pakistan remain fully prepared to give the most befitting response to any kind of internal and external threat posed to our nation,” he said.

“Their (enemies’) nefarious designs will not be allowed to succeed at any cost. Resolute efforts to consolidate our gains is the only way forward for which we will not leave any stone unturned,” Raheel said.

He claimed that Pakistan was making efforts to eliminate militancy.

“Internally, Operation Zarb-e-Azb had successfully turned the tide against terrorism. We are engaged in eliminating the terrorism infrastructure from our soil and foil nefarious designs of our enemies,” he said.

    Papistan should be given noble peace prize - as had not the army kept saint Osama bin Laden under house ( palace ) arrest in Abbotabad cantonment for so many years, he would have carried many 9/11 type of attacks ! He was just not a peaceful Taoist follower !lt;br/gt; So many infrastructure projects have been build since 1947 in that land ... It is a herculean task!

          The Islamic stan is a failed country today controlled by the rogue military dictators, Mullahs still preaching 7th century Islamic ideologies of Jihad/Sharia, has become home of the barbaric/notorious terror groups like Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS, etc, and overall exporting terror/killing across the globe. Raheel Sharif has to realize that a million plus well trained, well equipped, highly capable Indian armed forces can dismember the Balochistan and the POK relatively short period and he is playing with the fire.

              It is the Pak army,which is the enemy of its own country and people of stan. It gave birth to terrorism in stan, Afghanistan, POK and sends them to India since 1947 itself, when Jinnah pushed muzahideen in Kashmir.It must know tolerance of India has reached the level, where from only tough reply is required and next time stan's sufferings will be beyond recognition. It is unfortunate that Pak has not learnt a lesson from 1971 defeat. It is giving threats of nuclear attack, but must know in case of nuclear attack, Pak will become a barren land with only few crippled survivals case it attack India, China and USA will be muke spectators and POK will be governed by India again .
