Representational image

Hussain Bibi, 65, w/o Haji Farzand, resident of Peer Khana village, was killed on Thursday when the Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing, targeting Pakistani check-posts in Kot Kotera Sector in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).

General Rawat, while addressing the media, said the schools in Jammu and Kashmir were teaching students with two maps - one of India and another of the state. "The state government knows how to run schools". Every school in every state has two maps.

He said both India and China were very keen on having a hotline between the Indian Army's Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) and the Chinese officer holding similar position. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons. They have a responsibility.

As regards an "assertive" China, Rawat said India can not afford its neighbours to drift away and should have good relations with them to act as a counter balance to the eastern neighbour. "If that is what they desire, they are welcome to test our resolve".


Bipin Rawat, in his address to the media on the eve of Army Day, had linked the two-flag issue with militancy.

".Why do we need a separate map for J&K? Most are coming from schools where a lot of disinformation (is spread)" Bipin Rawat had said, IANS reported.

The ISPR chief said Pakistan is a responsible nuclear state with a professional army, therefore India "must not remain in illusion".

The ISI and the Pakistani Army is also reportedly anxious about the scale and ferocity of the Indian response after every attack on its border outpost and troops by the Pakistan Rangers at Line of Control and the International Border.
