Pakistan’s Ruling Party Leader Threatens India With Nuclear War: Report

New Delhi: Pakistan Peoples Party leader Shazia Marri has threatened a nuclear war with India, news agency ANI reported quoting Bol News, a day after India strongly condemned the neighbouring country’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto for his “uncivilised outburst” against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“India should not forget that Pakistan has an atom bomb. Our nuclear status is not meant to remain silent. We will not back down if the need arises,” Marri told reporters at a news conference in support of Bhutto, ANI reported.

India on Friday blasted Bhutto over his offensive personal attack on PM Modi, calling it a “new low even for Pakistan.” In a firm and unsparing condemnation of Bhutto’s remarks at the UN, New Delhi said Pakistan lacks the credentials to cast aspersions on India and added that “Make in Pakistan terrorism” has to stop.

On Thursday, Bhutto had said: “Osama bin Laden is dead, but the butcher of Gujarat lives and he is the Prime Minister of India.”

He was reacting to Foreign Minister S Jaishankar calling Pakistan the “epicentre of terrorism” in a powerful takedown.

“These comments are a new low, even for Pakistan. The Foreign Minister of Pakistan has obviously forgotten this day in 1971, which was a direct result of the genocide unleashed by Pakistani rulers against ethnic Bengalis and Hindus. Unfortunately, Pakistan does not seem to have changed much in the treatment of its minorities. It certainly lacks credentials to cast aspersions at India,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
