Sardar Masood Khan, President Azad Jammu and Kashmir
President Masood said that in the face of such naked aggression, the Armed Forces of Pakistan has all the right to defend its territory and can retaliate with full force. He added that the people of Pakistan along with Azad Jammu and Kashmir stand shoulder to shoulder with the Armed Forces of Pakistan who may strike back in vengeance for any such cowardly misadventures.
It is customary of India, he said, to use such tactics to divert the world attention from the gross human rights violations in Kashmir. He said that the international community, especially the United Nations Security Council should immediately convene over this precarious development and help de-escalate rising tensions.
