Pakistan will never ever start a war with India, Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday, amid tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours over Kashmir. The sudden U-turn by the cricketer-turned prime minister shows Pakistan today stand isolated in the world on Kashmir. “We will never ever start the war. Both Pakistan and India are nuclear powers and if tension escalates the world will face danger”, Khan had said while addressing a gathering of the Sikh community at the Governor’s House in Lahore. Khan said that war is not a solution to any problem. “I want to tell India that war is not a solution to any problem. The winner in war is also a loser. War gives birth to host of other issues,” he had said. Some wise talks come after raising the war hysteria and taking Kashmir to everybody’s door that mattered. India has not been engaging with Pakistan since an attack on the Air Force base at Pathankot in January of 2016 by Pakistan-based terrorists, maintaining that talks and terror cannot go together. Early this year, tensions flared up between India and Pakistan after a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) killed 40 CRPF personnel in Kashmir’s Pulwama district. Amid mounting outrage, the Indian Air Force carried out a counter-terror operation, hitting the biggest JeM training camp in Balakot, deep inside Pakistan on February 26. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 in an aerial combat and captured Indian pilot, who was handed over to India on March 1. Tension between India and Pakistan recently escalated after New Delhi revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status. Reacting to India’s move on Kashmir, Pakistan downgraded diplomatic ties with New Delhi and expelled the Indian High Commissioner. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the first to offer talk provided the nighbour desisted from exporting terror to India. Everyone knows Pakistan under a civilian prime minister is a handicapped one and has no say without army’s consent as far as Kashmir is concerned and the ‘no war’ offer looks to be superfluous and is the reflection of army stand knowing it will take the biggest hit from India. Prime Minister Modi had offered him to work to elevate poverty, illiteracy, poor health care system, water shortage and it was Pakistan counterpart played truant.
