Islamabad: Raising a hue and cry and alleging India of destabilizing Pakistan, former military dictator Pervez Musharraf has said nuclear weapons are for the defence of the country and not for “celebratory” occasion.
Musharraf, who ruled from 1999 to 2008, claimed India is carrying an aggressive attitude as a preplanned strategy with the ultimate end game of denuclearizing Pakistan.
The reaction came after India said it will not hesitate in going beyond its borders to eliminate terrorists, in an apparent warning to Pakistan.
Indian Army this week carried out a surgical strike inside Myanmar, killing scores of Naga insurgents. Musharraf also asked Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to respond to threats in his capacity.
