‘Pakistan is nuclear power’: Debt-ridden Sharif warns India

Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who has been facing immense pressure in his own country amid a drastic increase in inflation and terrorism, has again tried to lesson India with the nuclear arsenals it has. While addressing a public rally in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), Sharif claimed that New Delhi would not be able to cast an “evil eye” on his nuclear-armed country, which has the “power to pull out the enemy’s evil eye and crush it under its feet.”

“Pakistan is a nuclear power and India cannot look at us with an evil eye. We have the power to take it out and crush it under our feet,” he said.  The statement from Sharif came even at a time when the country is battling with the worst-ever economic crisis.

Interestingly, earlier in 2019, while addressing a rally, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that India has stopped the policy of getting scared of Pakistan’s threats and added India has not kept its nuclear arsenals for Diwali.

Earlier last month, Prime Minister Sharif lamented the situation and said it was shameful for a nuclear country to beg in front of other nations in order to fulfil the basic demands of its citizens. The statement from Sharif came days after the United Arab Emirates agreed to extend a $2 billion loan to Islamabad.
