DG Inter-services Public Relations (ISPR) slammed the Indian Army’s higher officers for their unwarranted remarks regarding Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) calling it their delusional mindset.
A high-ranking Indian Army Officer Commander Lt. General Upendra Dwivedi earlier this week stated that India is ready to execute orders of taking back Azad Jammu and Kashmir from Pakistan.
DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar also stated that this comment from the Indian army showcases the vivid imprint of domestic political showboating on Indian military thought.
The unwarranted statement of a high-ranking Indian Army Officer concerning Azad Jammu and Kashmir is an apt manifestation of Indian Armed Forces’ delusional mindset and showcases the vivid imprint of domestic political showboating on Indian military thought (1/5)

In a series of Tweets higher officials of ISPR also added that false claims and unfounded allegations of so-called launch pads and terrorists are an effort to draw focus away from the Indian Army’s excessive use of force against innocent people of Kashmir and grave human rights violations.
“Unarmed Kashmiris are striving for their right of self-determination upheld by International Law & enshrined in UN Security Council Resolutions. The Indian General Officer’s lofty claims and surreal ambition are intellectually insulting,” Major General Babar Iftikhar added.
He also claimed that the Pakistan military is a force for good and a proponent of regional peace and stability.
DG ISPR also emphasized that this passion for peace must be balanced with our capabilities and readiness to repel any misadventure or assault on our land.
This assertion has been amply confirmed in multiple instances most recently in the Balakot affair, he said.
DG Babar Iftikhar further said that in the interest of peace for the region, the Indian military would do well to abstain from irresponsible rhetoric and vitriolic communication to shore up electoral support for their political masters’ regressive ideology.
