Army chief no educationist, should avoid sermons: Edu Min

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Saturday said that India may test Pakistan's resolve if that is what it wishes to do.

Bukhari was reacting to general Rawat's statement yesterday that schools in Jammu and Kashmir were teaching two maps - India's and Jammu and Kashmir's - to the students, which he said was radicalising youth. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us and the country gives us a task, we are not going to say that we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons.

Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, while talking to state-run PTV World termed the Indian army chief's statement "irresponsible" and "unbecoming" of a four-star general who is serving as the chief of army staff.

"In every school there is a map of India and a map of Jammu and Kashmir". Army chief also said that the time has come for India to shift focus to its northern border.Bipin Rawat cautioned that the country can not allow its neighbors to drift towards China. They have a responsibility.

"That's why they are targeting us through sub-conventional threat and state-sponsored terrorism", he said, adding, "But they have failed on this account as well. They do their job well, all problem will be solved", Bukhari added.

Bipin Rawat, in his address to the media on the eve of Army Day, had linked the two-flag issue with militancy. Why should you have a separate map of Jammu and Kashmir? "What does it teach the children?"

The Army Chief also said it would be premature to assess the impact of US President Donald Trump's decision to put pressure on Pakistan to act against terror groups operating from its soil. "Education is education. People go to China to learn", the minister said.
