اس موقع پر مختلف رہنماؤں کی طرف سے پیغامات
Shah Mahmood Qureshi (Foreign Minister): I congratulate to the entire nation on auspicious occasion of Yaum-e-Takbeer. I acknowledge and appreciate the services of the scientists and engineers, who contributed to make Pakistan a nuclear power. No power on the face of earth can impose its malicious agenda on Pakistan. India is jeopardizing peace of the region through pursuing its sordid ambitions. Despite having the nuclear capability, Pakistan believes in peaceful coexistence and wants to establish good friendly ties with all regional countries. When India initiated its nuclear program, it was necessary for Pakistan to maintain minimum deterrence for regional peace and security. Indian ambitions are dangerous for the entire region. The situation along LOC and LAC exposes India’s nefarious designs. India is habitual of targeting innocent civilians at LoC. India has been involved in conducting subversive activities in Baluchistan. India is also involved in fanning terrorism to destabilize peace in Pakistan by using Afghan soil. India is also creating hurdles in Afghanistan peace process. These all ground realities of the region suggest that India has emerged as a peace spoiler in the region.
Fawad Hussain Chaudhry (Minister for Science and Technology): 28th of May is a remarkable day in the history of Pakistan. Pakistan’s nuclear program is not against any country, the only purpose is to ensure peace and maintain the balance of power in the region. Pakistan security forces are capable enough to give befitting response to Indian aggression. India has faced severe embarrassment in Laddakh in recent standoff with China. Indian political and military establishment must behave sensibility. Indian economy is declining under Modi regime. Indian government wants to divert attention of its masses by using anti-Muslim anti-Pakistan card. Pakistan agriculture would be changed in coming years as we have planned a close agriculture export program with Gulf states
Dr. Samar Mubarakmand (Renowned scientist): Pakistan launched its nuclear program for its own safety and security. Kashmir is a nuclear flash-point between Pakistan and India. We have been working on nuclear program since 1974. The world recognized Pakistan as a nuclear state, which maintained balance of power in the region. Pakistan is the first Muslim state to own a nuclear technology. India’s military is not capable like that of China. Pakistan is a peace-loving nation and believes in peaceful resolution of regional disputes.
Abdul Basit (Pakistan’s former High Commissioner to India): Pakistan’s nuclear program is only for its own security and defense. Pakistan’s armed forces are capable enough to give befitting response to Indian aggression. Pakistan has always offered sincere negotiation to resolve all outstanding issues. Pakistan is not oblivious of India’s nefarious agenda. India’s war mongering postures posing serious threat to regional peace. War is not in the interest of any nation. Provocative statements from Indian leadership would bring catastrophic consequences for entire region. The resolution of Kashmir dispute is imperative for regional peace.
Dr. Khurram Iqbal (Expert on International Relations): The nuclear test conducted on 28th may made Pakistan invincible against India’s hegemonic agenda. Pakistan atomic bombs are more relevant today to maintain regional security and stability. If we had not conducted nuclear tests, India would have gone for more misadventures to establish its supremacy in the region. Pakistan needs to further enhance its nuclear capability to maintain the balance of power in the region. The United States tilt towards India allowed it to increase its military capability. The kind of weapon India has developed its only nuclear bomb preventing India from taking any aggressive step. We have maintained nuclear deterrence to ensure that balance of power is maintained in the region.
Lt General, retired, Asif Yasin Malik (Former Defense Secretary): India has always exercised aggression and hostility towards Pakistan. India wants to establish its writ in the region. India is not capable enough to lead the region. Pakistan’s defensive mechanism is only for the defense purposes. Pakistan security forces have proved that Pakistan nuclear program is better than India defense system.
