New Delhi: Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Friday paid a visit to the country’s air headquarters and took an overview of their preparations. The move comes days after India introduced a slew of combative measures against Pakistan in the wake of February 14 Pulwama terror attack carried out by Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed.

Fearing further retaliatory reaction from India, the neighbouring country is prepping up its military and air forces.


During his visit to the Air Headquarters in Islamabad, Chief Of Army Staff (COAS) Bajwa, also held a meeting with their Chief of Air Staff Mujahid Anwar Khan, to discuss ways to deal with any “Indian aggression” or “misadventure". They deliberated on operational environment including threat and response.

Pakistan Armed Forces spokesperson, Asif Ghafoor, tweeted: "COAS visited AHQ. COAS & CAS deliberated on operational environment including threat and response. Both Chiefs expressed satisfaction on readiness, coordination & synergy. Pak Armed Forces are fully prepared for a befitting response to any Indian aggression or misadventure, IA."

Pakistan has been observant of India’s actions ever since terrorists attacked CRPF convoy in Kashmir and killed 40 soldiers, in one of the worst terror strikes in past years.

Earlier today, former President General of the country, Pervez Musharraf ruled out any prospects of nuclear attack by Pakistan on India, saying that he feared New Delhi could retaliate the attack in the strongest possible manner by bombing Islamabad with 20 atom bombs on even a single nuke action by his country.

“Then the only solution is that we should first attack them with 50 atom bombs so that they cannot hit us with 20 bombs. Are you ready to first launch an attack with 50 bombs”, he said while addressing a gathering in UAE.

In a much delayed response to the horrific terror strikes, the immediate neighbour had said India has been accusing it of terror attack without any evidence. Its PM Imran Khan said Islamabad will conduct a probe only if New Delhi shares actionable intelligence.

Days after this, country’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi wrote letter to the UN Security Council accusing India of threatening regional security.

India had said, "Disclaiming any link between the terrorist attack and Pakistan is an oft-repeated excuse by Pakistan."

"It is a well-known fact that Jaish-e-Mohammad and its leader Masood Azhar are based in Pakistan. These should be sufficient proof for Pakistan to take action," the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.
