"If India Attacks, Pakistan Will Retaliate": Imran Khan amid tension over Pulwama

Forensic and security officials stand next to the wreckage of a bus after a suicide bombing in Lethpora in south Kashmir's Pulwama district, February 15, 2019.

The Indian Army on Tuesday said within 100 hours of the February 14 Pulwama attack on a CRPF convoy that left 40 troopers dead, it eliminated the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) leadership in the valley that planned and executed the deadly carnage.

The attack has led to a spike in communal tensions in Hindu-majority India.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan while addressing the media for the first time after the Pulwama attack today said that Pakistan will retaliate if India attacks.

"I hope better sense will prevail", Khan added.

India has withdrawn trade privileges offered to Pakistan and has warned of further action. "And after that where will it head?" They have fought two wars and a limited conflict in the region.

"Disclaiming any link between the terrorist attack and Pakistan is an oft-repeated excuse by Pakistan", the statement said.

Fabinho to start in Liverpool defence against Bayern Munich
The Brazil global has played in every single one of Liverpool's matches this season, scoring 11 times in 34 appearances. Van Dijk has completed the full 90 minutes in all 26 of Liverpool's Premier League games this term.

India blamed Pakistan for the attack on Thursday in which a militant rammed a van full of explosives in to a bus carrying paramilitary troops. Pakistan's information minister Fawad Chaudhry said in an interview that Pakistan would take action against anyone if India share evidence.

The AJK president went on to say that India has adopted a despotic attitude towards Kashmiris for the past 71 years and now it is extending the same to Indian Muslims and Pakistan.

Mirwaiz said that not only students but Kashmiri businessmen and traders staying in various places in India were also targeted and harassed, forcing many to flee.

Khan said his country had changed. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analysis from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "This is a new mind set, this is new thinking", he said.

The Indian chapter of the human rights group Amnesty International urged India's federal and state governments to "ensure that ordinary Kashmiri women and men do not face targeted attacks, harassment and arbitrary arrests" following Thursday's suicide bombing.

"I would request all the mothers in Kashmir to please request their sons who have joined terrorism to surrender and get back to the mainstream", Lieutenant-General Dhillon told reporters in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir state.

"Otherwise anyone who has picked up the gun will be killed".

Mohammad Yunis, a journalist in Pulwama, said troops were searching the village.

Dhillon did not provide any proof for his accusation.

Harbhajan Singh said India are strong enough to win the World Cup even if they decide to forfeit the match against Pakistan in Manchester on June 16.

Pakistan denies any role in the bombing, but India has accused the state of being complicit.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi sent a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres alleging that "for domestic political reasons, India has deliberately ratcheted up its hostile rhetoric against Pakistan and created a tense environment".

That attack, the worst in decades, has fuelled tensions between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan. Pakistan called on the U.N.to help defuse tensions.

"23 CRPF soldiers had availed of loans from the bank and the bank has chose to waive off all the outstanding loans with immediate effect", the bank said in a statement.
