Stay clear of our soil: army chief warns India

GILGIT: Pakistan will cross all limits in protecting its territorial integrity, army chief General Raheel Sharif warned on Thursday in a rare rebuke directed at Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“(Narendra) Modi, RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) or whosoever is, our borders are completely secured,” said Gen Raheel while addressing the concluding ceremony of a seminar on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor in Gilgit.
The Chief of Army Staff chose Gilgit to hit back at the Indian premier who had made a reference to the region earlier in August.
In his 94-minute-long independence day speech on August 15, Modi had claimed that some residents of Balochistan and Gilgit had thanked him for saying that security forces have committed human rights violations in their region.
The speech drew widespread condemnation from Islamabad with the Foreign Office calling it crossing a red line.
“We are aware of our enemies, know their tactics and to spoil their designs we would cross even the last limit,” Gen Raheel asserted.
The army chief went on to say that they will leave no stone unturned for the security and stability of the country, adding that Pakistan was moving in the right direction and that there should be no doubt about that.
He also shot a warning to detractors, reminding them that Pakistan’s army was second to none and a battle hardened force.
