Going to Pak or to hell is the same thing: Manohar Parrikar

New Delhi: In his Independence Day speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi talked about a free Balochistan and PoK and now it is Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar who today compared Pakistan to hell.

Parrikar said, “Going to Pakistan or to hell is the same thing.”

A leading daily quoted Parrikar as saying that as Pak has not been able to cause major damages, it is now trying to inflict smaller wounds on the Indians.

PM Modi’s Balochistan and Pak mention did not go down well with Pak as its Foreign Policy Advisor Sartaj Aziz said that Modi was just trying to divert world attention from the grim tragedy that has been unfolding in the Indian-occupied Kashmir over the past five weeks.

On the other hand S Jaishankar to visit Islamabad, yesterday Pakistan Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry invited his Indian counterpart to Islamabad to hold talks on Jammu and Kashmir.

Kashmir Valley has been witnessing curfew ever since protests broke out following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani on July 8 by the security forces.
