Islamabad: DG ISPR Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor said, if today’s Pakistani media was present during the 1971 Pakistan-India war, it would have “unmasked India’s conspiracies, reported on the excesses committed domestically and therefore East Pakistan would not have separated from West Pakistan”. At the start of the presser, Maj Gen Ghafoor said India had accused Pakistan of being behind the Pulwama attack in occupied Kashmir, but that Pakistan had denied the same. “We told them we were not involved. India then violated our airspace, we then gave the ultimatum that we will respond when we see fit, just like the PM said. “Two months have passed since and India has told countless lies on the matter. We have not responded to the lies, not because we can’t, but because we don’t want to retaliate.
“International media came to Pakistan, we told them that they should go to the place and see for themselves what had happened.”India had said that 300 people had died in their attack [in Balakot]. Then they said that they had used a small-scale missile that bore a tiny hole in the ceiling of the building and then exploded inside. We again offered to show your own media the site.” “We downed two Indian planes in the process, the whole world saw their debris and you [India] still claimed that one of the two planes was ours and one of our own pilots died, as we had initially said that two Indian pilots had been captured, and then said that there was only one. You [India] said that we have changed our statement because one pilot was our own.
