ISLAMABAD – Ajay Bisaria, The Indian High Commissioner for Pakistan at the time of the Balakot attacks states, aiming at Indian people that “you will perhaps never know the success of the Balakot attacks”.
He gave an interview to The Wire in which he stated that the success of the attacks can’t be measured with words as there’s no concrete proof of the success.
This is the first time an Indian High Commissioner has admitted to the fact that Baharat only has false narratives and a negative media force to keep the public fueled and sound evidence is not present which talks about the success of those attacks.
In February 2019, the Indian Air Force had ventured into Pakistani territory and struck in Balakot stating that they’re aimed at terrorists.
Shortly after this incident, the Pakistani Air Force scrambled their jets including the JF-17 Thunder which was a rather new addition to the family at the time and ventured into Indian territory.
They targeted Indian hideouts but did not directly fire upon them but just informed about the intel Pakistan has about their bases and headquarters.
In response, the Indian jets scrambled which led to a jaw-dropping dogfight between the pilots. As the jets ventured into Pakistani territory, skilled PAF pilots shot down two Indian jets.
One of the pilots was reduced from the Indian jet flying a MiG-21 named Abinandan Varthaman, who was held by Pakistan in great hospitality.
Diplomatic talks between the countries led to Pakistan letting Abinandan free to venture back to India.
However, Ajay Bisaria stated during the interview that India has no solid proof of the success of the strikes it conducted in Balakot in 2019.
He also made controversial statements in his book “Anger Management: The Troubled Diplomatic Relationship between India and Pakistan”
Bisaria also made some statements about the terrorists who were responsible for the Pulwama attacks and was asked if he was also reiterating Satya Pal malik who was the President of Indian Occupied Kashmir back them.
Satya Pal Malik stated that the attacks only occurred because of the incompetence and the carelessness by the Indian system.
Bisaria also stated during the interview that both India and Pakistan panicked as the then Indian Foreign Minister Susha Swaraj called the then US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
He stated that the Indian Foreign Ministere panicked and called the Secretary in the middle of the night afraid that Pakistan was going to use nuclear weapons on India.
He stated that when there was no evidence to these matters the Modi government pushed a false narrative to take advantage for the upcoming elections.
Bisaria stated that it’s very difficult to uncover the sheer truth behind the Pulwama attacks and the Balakot incident as long as the BJP is in charge.
As long as there’s evidence of Indian competence, the evidence is just shredded to pieces and it’s all blamed back to Pakistan for the good of the BJP.
