Real estate and financial services giant Aqeel Karim Dhedhi commonly known as (AKD) blasted on Indian attitude even after the Prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan released captured on peace gesture, said that the neighouring country’s public is innocent and only a few politicians plays the role of pied piper to remain in power.

AKD: There can be no war between Pakistan and India; there should be no war between Pakistan and India because both the countries are nuclear powers.

War need to be waged against poverty, not against the humanity

AKD: I fully endorse the statement of Prime Minister Imran Khan that Pakistan would respond to any military adventurism. However, he mentioned that war is not the solution to anything and it would only cause sufferings to the people of both the countries. Prime Minister also said that if a war needs to be waged, it needs to be waged against poverty, a problem which is way more severe in India than Pakistan. War not to be waged against humanity.

AKD: Our military and Army Chief have also modestly noted that war is not the solution and both sides should sit together and solve the issue through dialogue. Kashmir is a very long issue and the barbarianism underway in Kashmir by the hands of Indian forces is known to the entire world and Pakistan cannot back down from its stance regarding Kashmir as it is a matter of life and death for Pakistan.

Indian people are aware of the genocide being conducted in Kashmir

AKD: Even Indian people are aware of the genocide being conducted in Kashmir and they also want this issue to be resolved. Indian people are also against war. There are some extremist elements in India but it is just a niche and they do not have public support. Claims by the India against Pakistan are incredibly surreal.

AKD: India violated Pakistan’s airspace and made an attack, which was an absolute failure. On other hand Pakistan’s forces have displayed utmost courage and competency. Pakistan was compelled to retaliate and they proved their superiority.

Pakistan was compelled to retaliate and proved superiority

AKD: We stand with the Prime Minister Imran Khan and armed forces of Pakistan and we admire their maturity and fully endorse the policy of peace. I request Indian media to highlight Pakistan’s stance and convince their government to dialogues as war is not the solution.

It is ridiculous to test such a skilled and competent Pakistan Army

AKD: If a war is imposed on Pakistan, the entire nation is with the armed forces of Pakistan, which has both the capability and capacity. Pakistan’s armed forces have been in a very long war against terrorism and have successfully met its targets. It is ridiculous to test such a skilled and competent army.

AKD: I am a businessman and I also do not want war. One can imagine the resources, the budget would be spent on war; wouldn’t it be wise to spend these resources for the betterment of our people.
