NEW DELHI – Leader of India’s incumbent government’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Subramanian Swamy on Monday said that India was ready for war with Pakistan and “waiting for an opportunity to finish Pakistan.”

Reacting to Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa for his remark over Kashmir, the leader said that India is waiting for an opportunity to go to war with Pakistan, “if the neighbouring country dared to interfere.”

“Let them attempt, we are ready. We will retaliate and that will be the end of Pakistan. All Indian nationalists are waiting for an opportunity to finish Pakistan. Let them try,” Swamy told ANI.

Swamy further said that no matter how much Pakistan tries, they will never succeed in separating Kashmir from India.

“Four times Pakistan has gone to war with India and they lost. I don`t bother about their statements, we know that country, and there is no government. They may do what they like to, we are waiting for them,” he said.

“He should mind his business. He should read our constitution. There is not even one inch of Indian Territory that we will give. As per the Parliamentary resolution 1994, we will never ever rest till every inch of India is restored including that part which is in occupation by Pakistan. So, what is the point of wasting time in this issue? He has lot of issues to face in his own country,” Swamy said.

Chief of army staff General Qamar Bajwa had said on Sunday that Pakistan would continue to support the political struggle of the Kashmiris for the right of self-determination. The army chief said Pakistan would continue to support the struggle of the Kashmiris.

“We will always stand by their (Kashmiris) rightful political struggle for the right of self-determination and recourse to basic human rights,” Bajwa said.

Anti-Muslim rhetoric with ultra-nationalist prejudice against Pakistan

The minister is notorious for his hatred against the Muslim population of India and supporting discriminatory laws against other minorities.

“If Pakistan hangs (Kulbhushan) Jadhav, then India must recognise Balochistan as an independent country,” said the leader.

Swamy also urged the Balochis in Delhi to form a government in exile. “Ultimately Pakistan will end up in four pieces,” he said. Accusing Pakistan of being a ‘terror friendly state’ Swamy said New Delhi cannot deal with Islamabad in a civilised manner.

“We should prepare to take stringent action against Pakistan. Today, we should give warning that consequences would be bad for Pakistan if Jadhav is executed,” Swamy had told reporters outside the Parliament.

“Pakistan has selected Jadhav saying that he was trying to create problems in Balochistan. India should now declare Balochistan an independent country,” he said.
