KONTAN.CO.ID – Islamabad. The threat of war occurred between India vs Pakistan. In fact, the India vs Pakistan war could create a dark history for using nuclear weapons.
The threat of war between India and Pakistan would flare up, said a Pakistani minister. The minister threatened to attack India using nuclear weapons in the “last bloody war”.

The Minister of Railways, Sheikh Rashid, claims they have “small and perfect” very accurate weapons, and can reach certain areas. Rashid said they were not interested in conventional warfare, and threatened “there will be the end”, referring to nuclear weapons.
“If Pakistan is to be attacked by India, there will be no conventional war. This war is nuclear and bloody,” he threatened as quoted by Samaa TV. “Our weapons will clearly save the lives of Muslims and will only target certain areas,” the minister said as quoted by The Sun Friday (21/8/2020).
He stated that the conflict between the two countries will clearly be a conflict of weapons of mass destruction, in which he claims that their weapons are perfect and compact in size. The Rashid said their weapons could cover areas like Assam. “So if India attacks, this is the end,” he said.
The 69-year-old minister is said to have made bombastic statements. The history of Islamabad’s violence was said to have threatened several times with using weapons of mass destruction against India, Prime Minister Imran Khan said last year.
In August 3019, Khan gave a message to his colleague, PM Narendra Modi, that his country’s military could do anything in Kashmir. “The world must know that if two nuclear countries face each other, the world will be affected by the sap. I firmly convey this,” he said.
In September last year, Khan again voiced the potential for his country to deploy a nuclear bomb, in which he also touched on the issue of Muslim radicalization. In the same year, Rashid also claimed that Islamabad had 125-250 atomic bombs, which could strike certain areas in the “Land of Bollywood”.
