Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat’s remarks about Pakistan amount to “invitation for nuclear encounter”.

Asif was reacting to Rawat’s Friday remark when the latter said the Army is ready to call Pakistan’s “nuclear bluff” and cross the border if the situation arises.

“We will call the (nuclear) bluff of Pakistan. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we cannot cross the border because they have nuclear weapons. We will have to call their nuclear bluff,” Rawat had said at a press conference on Wednesday.

The reaction came after General Bipin Rawat had dismissed Islamabad’s assertions that its tactical nuclear weapons had prevented India from waging a military war on Pakistan.

Reacting to the statement, Asif wrote on Twitter: “Very irresponsible statement by Indian Army Chief, not befitting his office. Amounts to invitation for nuclear encounter. If that is what they desire,they are welcome to test our resolve. The general’s doubt would swiftly be removed, inshallah.”

Earlier on Saturday, the Pakistan Army warned India against any ‘misadventure’. It asserted that the country’s nuclear weapons were exclusively meant to foil any threat emanating from the east. Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor warned of a response if India undertook any misadventure.

    According to Saraswati Purana, Brahma created his beautiful daughter Saraswati direct from his vital strength or seminal fluid. Some texts also prove that Brahma used to collect his in a pot whenever he d fixing his eyes on the celestial beauty Urvasi. Brahma’s in the pot gave birth to Saraswati. Thus, Saraswati had no mother. This daughter of Brahma is the Hindu goddess of learning. When Brahma saw the beauty of Saraswati he became amorous. To escape from her father’s passionate approach Saraswati ran to the lands in all four directions, but she could not escape from her father. She finally succumbed to Brahma’s wish. Brahma and his daughter Saraswati lived as husband and wife indulging in incest for 100 years. They had a son Swayambhumaru. Swayambhumaru made love with his sister Satarpa. Through the incest of Brahma’s son and daughter Brahma got two g sons and two g -daughters. Prajapati (Brahma) desired his daughter (SARASWATI) and made love to her.

            The worst general india has ever had. Every time he opens his mouth, he talks like a ignorant and reckless gali ka goonda. Please let the diplomacy do its job dear General. Taxpayers are already paying through their nose maintaining huge indian army. War is something we have to avoid as long as possible if we want our nation to use limited resources for growth and welfare of people, to get rid of poverty and unemployment, to build up infrastructure and become a class country. we cant afford get into a slogging match with a muddy country. you talk like a old fool.
