Rumours of war create panic in Pakistan

IANS – Dec 22, 2008

ISLAMABAD (IANS): The Pakistan Air Force has increased its vigilance flights creating panic and sparking war rumours, as Defence Minister Ahmad Mukhtar Chaudhry Monday warned that the country had the potential and right to defend itself if forced to war.

“If India tried to thrust war, then the armed forces of Pakistan have all the potential and right to defend (the country),” Chaudhry told reporters, as he said the defence of Pakistan was in strong hands.

Chaudhry said India would never want war because “if it breaks out, then god forbid the situation might develop into a nuclear war.”

He said Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s statement relating to war with Pakistan was nothing but an election stunt…

Several jets were seen flying close to Lahore and Islamabad, alarming some residents, witnesses said.

Last weekend, Pakistan said Indian jets violated its airspace in two parts of the country, but were chased back over the border. New Delhi said there was no violation.

Nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have fought three wars over the last 60 years.

India accuses Pakistani militants of planning and carrying out the attacks on Mumbai. Pakistan has promised to cooperate, but the strikes have raised tensions nevertheless.

Remember that Jesus taught:

6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet (Matthew 24:6).

We live in perilous times, but the end is not yet.
