A strongly worded message from the Prime Minister’s Office, denouncing the dastardly incursion of Pakistani commandos into Indian territory to behead two Indian soldiers by calling it ‘objectionable’, has shocked 10 Pakistani soldiers and sent them to their maker.
The 10 soldiers from the Baloch regiment were patrolling the LoC in the Uri sector of the Valley when they heard news over the radio of the official Indian reaction and collapsed in shock, confirmed Pakistani military spokesperson, Major General Naseerullah Bhatti. The Pakistani Foreign Office has summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner and handed a protest note over the latest incident, calling the PMO’s statement provocative, escalatory and uncalled for.
The United States has expressed concern over the latest incident. “We urge the Indian leaders to stop issuing statements that can result in more Pakistani casualties and trigger a major military conflagration,” State Department spokesperson, Victoria Nuland, told reporters. The US has advised India to invite Pakistan for a Test series to lower temperatures and keep the peace process intact. “We hear your team’s form has slumped. A 3-0 Test series defeat at the hands of the Pakistanis will boost the Pakistan Army’s morale so that they can focus on assisting us in finishing the bad guys in the Af-Pak region rather than coming after your guys,” counselled the American spokesperson.
An official spokesperson from the government said that all options are on the table in responding to the latest Pakistani provocation including calling off the bilateral dialogue so as to abruptly restart it later, getting Arnab to hector more retired Pakistani Generals in front of the cameras, and summoning the Pakistan High Commissioner for a dressing down by Dr. Manmohan Singh.
