After Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan absolved his country of any involvement in the barbarous terror attack that killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force jawans in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district, Pakistan’s railway minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad in his government targeted India with a communal rant.
In a video posted on Twitter, Pakistan’s railway minister said that Pakistan is prepared for peace and for war and India should not live with the misconception that Pakistan will keep quiet if provoked.

He ranted, ‘If you talk peace, there will be peace. If you talk war, there will be war. As PM Imran Khan said, Pakistan is absolutely against terrorism. Imran Khan has categorically said that the reason why Muslims are being hounded in India today is because of Kashmir.’
Pak railway minister spews communal venom
‘We have not worn bangles. For us, Pakistan is life and Pakistan is death. If anyone looks at Pakistan with malice, those eyes will be gouged out. Then neither will you have prosperity nor will bells chime in your temples. Pakistan is that fort for Muslims that Muslims all over the world look out for, and in Imran Khan’s governance, over 20 crores of people are ready for peace and for war,” Sheikh Rashid Ahmad said in his address.
Further, he clearly accepted his communal venom being spread in India. He threatened to use nuclear weapons twisting it with the term- ‘Yeh phuljhadiyan humne diwali ke liye nahin rakhi hui’.
