Pakistan Prime Minister’s advisor on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz is scheduled to brief the Senate on the situation along the Line of Control ( LoC) in response to the summons by the House chairman Mian Raza Rabbani .
The Indian offensive at the LoC had rattled Pakistan army and the civilian administration alike on Wednesday, which was carried out to make Pakistan pay a heavy price for “ mutilating “body of one of three soldiers killed in Machil sector in Kupwara district on Tuesday.
As per Pakistan’s own claim , it lost three soldiers and 11 civilians in the cross border firing and accused the Indian army of targeting civilians. One passenger bus and ambulance were alleged to have been hit by the Indian fire and shelling in Neelam Valley road across the LoC.
India had carried out a counter offensive on Wednesday all along the LoC in Rajouri, Poonch and Kupwara districts as part of its vow to unleash “ heavy retribution for the cowardly act ( of beheading an Indian soldier) . The Indian offensive was so deafening and deadly that Pakistan’s Director General of Military Operations ( DGMO) spoke to his Indian counterpart to discuss and defuse the situation.
As the situation was unfolding in the most violent manner along the LoC that divides Jammu and Kashmir between India and Pakistan , the Senate Chairman Mian Raza Rabbani summoned Aziz to brief the House on Thursday , according to a report published in Dawn newspaper today.
Pakistan Peoples’ Party Senator Sherry Rehman questioned the government that why it has not moved the United Nations on the “ ceasefire violations by India” and the damage that it had caused on Pakistani side. She alleged that “ India was resorting to these tactics to divert attention from Kashmir,” the newspaper quoted her telling the Senate- the upper House of Pakistani Parliament.
The escalation of situation at the LoC has caused a lot of problems for the people living on both sides of the dividing line.
