Pakistan army: Will respond with ‘full force’ if India attacks | India News

The Pakistani army has said it is prepared to defend against any attack by India, and would respond with “full force” if that happens, a spokesman said a day after Prime Minister Imran Khan authorised the military to begin preparations for a possible attack.

“We have no intention to initiate war, but we will respond with full force to full spectrum threat, that would surprise you,” said Major General Asif Ghafoor on Friday, amid heightened tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.

“We do not wish to go to war. If it is imposed on us, we have the right to respond,” he told a news conference in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.

India vowed a “jaw-breaking response” to a suicide bombing in the disputed Kashmir region last week claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) armed group.

The attack killed 42 Indian soldiers – the worst such attack since the start of an armed rebellion in 1989.

Pakistan said it was “not involved in any way, means or form” in the attack which it claimed was “conceived, planned and executed indigenously”.

In the statement, Pakistan reiterated its offer to help investigate the attack and to take action against anyone found to be using the Pakistani soil for attacks on India.

Pakistan also offered to hold a “dialogue” with India on all issues, including “terrorism”. Earlier, it had demanded India provide evidence for its claims that it supports Kashmiri rebel groups.

India and Pakistan have been at loggerheads for seven decades over the Himalayan region of Kashmir, now one of the most militarised zones in the world.

India accuses Pakistan of harbouring and aiding armed rebels who target its forces in Kashmir, but Pakistan denies the allegations.

The latest tensions have raised fears of possible military escalations between the longtime rivals.

Kashmir, a Muslim-majority region, is split between Pakistani and Indian zones of control, but both countries claim it in its entirety and have fought two of their three wars over it.

The dad says his daughter got engaged recently and he had always been fond of her fiancé, who he thought of as “kind, humble and always respectful to our family”.

However, he says when he has met the man’s family for dinner on a couple of occasions, they made remarks towards his daughter which made him feel uncomfortable, including: ‘I don’t know why you’re working, isn’t that the husband’s job? It’s the mother’s job to be taking care of the children’.

As his daughter pair pressed ahead with their plans for the ceremony, the dad says her fiancé arranged a meeting with them both and his parents, adding that his daughter couldn’t be involved.

Previously, Gordon was slammed for the size of his steak and chips, was told to “get a grip” for the price of his fry-up and criticised for the roast which was compared to a ‘child’s portion’.

But the latest customer to be disappointed by the TV chef’s food was Simon, who visited the three Michelin star restaurant with friends, Daily Star reports.

Simon was ‘insulted’ after receiving a “preselected” cheese board, and took to TripAdvisor to leave a two-star review.

Their review said: “I visited GR hospital road on a Friday night with friends for a special treat.

Cooking pizzas for the whole family should be quick and easy dinner option – but it usually also throws up a headache.

With only one small oven to get the job done, we have to decide between either cooking one at a time and eating separately, or attempting to rotate them every few minutes to cook them evenly.

But one mum has revealed a painfully easy solution to get three frozen pizzas on one shelf, giving her room to put chips on a tray below – and you’ll wonder why your brain has never come up with the solution itself.

Posting on the Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas Facebook group, the mum demonstrated how she cuts the frozen pizzas in half before arranging them all on a single oven rack, making use of all available space.
