The Pakistan Army is working in coordination with civil institutions in the war against coronavirus, says Major General Babar Iftikhar, director general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

He said the Pakistan Army was ready to sacrifice everything for the country and the nation. He said that social distancing was also being practiced in the Pakistan Army. He said that he was saying his prayers at home with his children keeping in view the coronavirus pandemic.

Referring to recent statements by different people from Indian, the ISPR DG said that Indian aggression was increasing in occupied Kashmir and on the Line of Control (LoC). He said the Indian Army was issuing ridiculous and non-serious statements against Pakistan. He said the number of civilians embracing martyrdom along the Line of Control due to unprovoked firing and shelling by the Indian Army has increased. He said there was no truth in Indian statements about launchpads. He said that India should show the launchpads in Pakistan through its satellites.

The Pakistan Army’s spokesperson said that Pakistan invites international observers to visit the Line of Control. He said that India was increasingly indulging in ceasefire violations on the Line of Control. He said that India was blaming its internal chaos on Pakistan. He said the entire world was watching victimisation of minorities in India. He said the Indian leadership was levelling baseless allegations against Pakistan. He said that Indian propaganda against Pakistan vis-à-vis its treatment of minorities was baseless. He said that India was even blaming Pakistan for spread of coronavirus in the country without any valid reason.
