Major Gaurav Arya on a panel with Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami took a jibe at the hysterical utterance of Pakistan government and Pakistan military following the Indian Air Force strikes on JeM terror base camps within Pakistan territory, saying that country is running its own 'comedy circus'
Pakistan Major General Asif Ghafoor and Pakistan Minister for Defence Pervez Khattak after the air strikes, came up with muffled statements in an attempt to defend their country.
He said, "This is the media-wing of Inter-Services that was born to lie in 1949 and they lie. Pakistan has no skills, status or manners, but they have trolls sitting with them. Attack them, they'll say 'no one came, no one came' and spread that. That's their job. This is a comedy circus."
Earlier on Tuesday, the Defence Minister of 'naya Pakistan' made a statement when questioned about the Air strike saying 'it was dark and the loss could not be assumed'
He said, "When the attack took place in the morning, they (IAF) came 4-5 km inside (LoC) and they dropped the bombs. Our air force was ready but because it was night, the loss could not be assumed. So, they waited for that (to find the quantum of IAF air strike). Now we have received clear directions that if something like this happens in the future, we will respond to it."
Whereas, Ghafoor asked India to 'wait for the response'
He said, "Prime Minister Imran Khan told the army and people that get ready for any eventuality. Now it is time for India to wait for our response. We have decided. Wait for it."
Acknowledging both these statements, where the Defence Minister defends using the reason of 'night-time', while the Pak Army asks India to 'wait for it', Major Gaurav Arya had a good laugh on the panel.
He said, "They said it was dark, but if it wasn't dark come next time and we'll see you then. This is what they've said. Next time we come, this General Ghafoor will again say come next time and we'll see."
