Pakistani military lacks weapons and finance to combat India: General Bajwa


Lahore — Pakistan Army lacks the weapons and financial power to combat India, Former General Qamar Javed Bajwa, head of the Pakistan Army, allegedly informed two senior Pakistani journalists. General Bajwa had doubts about his troops’ prowess, according to UK-based Pakistani media outlet UK44.

“The Indian Army is more powerful than the Pakistani Army. India and (Pakistan) cannot go to war. According to Pakistani journalists Hamid Mir and Naseem Zehra, General Bajwa stated that the tanks were not in a position to operate and that there was no diesel for the cannons to move on.

The information is likely to lower the morale of the troops and cast doubt on Pakistan’s military prowess.

General Bajwa reportedly said these things at a commanders’ meeting, according to Mir. In addition, he asserted that General Bajwa believed Pakistan should seek ways to improve and normalise relations with India because there were few other options.

General Bajwa reportedly said these things at a commanders’ meeting, according to Mir. Additionally, he asserted that General Bajwa believed Pakistan should find a way to restore relations with India rather than pursue other choices because such options were limited.

According to the journalist, both parties were attempting to resolve the Kashmir issue since Pakistan knew it lacked the resources and economic might to confront India, according to a story from UK44 that was cited by news agency ANI.

Because the allegations indicate that the former army leader was fully aware that a protracted confrontation with India would deplete the country, the discoveries will also have an impact on India-hawks in Pakistan.

Pakistan’s economy is currently in a crisis, and it is largely dependent on loans from abroad to stay afloat.

Due to disagreements between the executive and judicial branches over elections in Punjab province, Pakistan’s political climate is especially precarious. With the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) assaulting security officers across northwest Pakistan, the country is also dealing with a new wave of terrorism.

Pakistan sees the Pakistani Army as one of the most crucial pillars of the state and a strong institution in the nation.

It should be remembered that the Dawn news agency, located in Pakistan, previously claimed that the prospect of a “all-out war” with India was one of the security-related reasons the Pakistani government gave for postponing elections.
