Navjot Singh Sidhu likens Pakistan, than travelling to South India & Pakistan warns of 10 surgical strike
India: After hugging Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at a time when India's relation with its neighbour were at its lowest, in less than two months. The retired cricketer turned politician Navjot Sidhu stirred up a fresh controversy on Saturday, when he drew an cultural analogy between Pakistan and South India.
Speaking at a literary festival in Kasol, Sidhu said, "If I go to Tamil Nadu, I don’t understand the language. Not that I don’t like the food, but I can’t take it for long. That culture is totally different. But if I travel to Pakistan there is no difficulty. The language is the same and everything there is just amazing."
On the other hand, Pakistan on Saturday dared to warn India of 10 surgical strikes, in response to a single such attack on Pakistan by India, in the latest war of words between the two estranged nuclear-armed neighbours.
Pakistan’s, Major General Asif Ghafoor, spokesperson of the military's Inter Services Public Relations, stated this while talking to the media in London, where he is accompanying Pakistan Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa on a visit. He said “If India dares to launch a surgical strike inside Pakistan, it will face 10 surgical strikes in response”
