Former military dictator Pervez Musharraf has warned India against engaging in any mischief against Pakistan in the backdrop of Pathankot terror attack, saying his country can inflict retaliatory measures that will always haunt India.
“In case India perpetrates something wrong against Pakistan, we will give such a fitting response that will always haunt India,” Musharraf was quoted by a Pakistani news channel.
He said India should refrain from embarking on any “mischief” against Pakistan, it said.
Musharraf’s remarks came in the backdrop of the terror attack on the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot by suspected terrorists affiliated to the dreaded Jaish-e-Mohammad group based in Pakistan.
The attack killed seven Indian security personnel. Security forces killed all the six attackers.
Defence minister Manohar Parrikar on Janaury 11 had said that any individual or organization causing pain to India should be paid back in the same coin but how, when and where “should be of our choice”.
The attack has come in between a thaw in relations between India and Pakistan after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unscheduled visit to Lahore on Pakistan Prime Nawaz Sharif’s birthday.
