        Why would polititions make their Master(US) angry by granting such permissions.

  • M Waseem Akhtar

    I don’t think a Ballistic Missiles with range of only 70km can maneuver much…… as it would have very low trajectory with very short flight time.

      Is is meant for close combat in the event India conducts surgical strikes or launches an invasion inside Pakistan in line with the Cold Start Doctrine. It will enable the use of nuclear weapons inside Pakistan in the event of an invasion which will perfectly be within international law since it will be for defense purposes.

      It is to stop movements of foreign forces and target short range objects.
