After Indian Army claimed it carried out surgical strikes on seven terror launchpads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir killing around 35 terrorists, fumed Pakistan opposition party leader Imran Khan said he will show Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif how to react to such “aggressions”.

 

“Initially I had to give a message to Nawaz Sharif, but tomorrow I will send a message to Modi too,” said the cricketer-turned-politician. 

 

Khan also urged people to participate in the march. "People from all over Pakistan should participate in the march to display unit," he said, adding that "I will show Nawaz Sharif how to respond to Modi". 

The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief also referred to Nawaz Sharif's "inability to govern" and said, "(Army Chief) Gen Raheel is representing the nation." 

Earlier, Pakistan Army dismissed India's claim that it has conducted a military operation across the LoC to target terrorist launchpads, terming it as a quest by India to create media hype by rebranding cross-border fire as surgical strike. 

Pakistan, however, confirmed that two of its soldiers were killed when the Indian military resorted to firing across the LoC, which divides Jammu and Kashmir between the two countries.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif strongly condemned the "unprovoked and naked aggression" by India along the LoC and said Pakistan's armed forces are fully capable of defending the territorial integrity of the country. 

 

On Wednesday night, a total of 150 Indian commandos of the Special Force targeted seven terror launchpads at four locations in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and shot down about 35 terrorists.
