Pakistan’s self-delusion cannot obfuscate the alarming ground realities of that country, senior Congress party leader Manish Tewari has said.

Tewari also expressed concern over the daily threat of nuclear weapons by the top Pakistani leaders. He said such a provocative behaviour is something that the world needed to be worried about.

The “problem of using nuclear deterrence in provocative ways involves Pakistan whose glide path as a failing state is now even defying gravity and poses a real and present danger to its very survivability,” Tewari said during a keynote address at the ‘India on the Hill: Charting a Future for Indo-US Relations’.

The event was jointly organised by The Heritage Foundation from the US and the Observer Research Foundation from India. The event was attended by the top think-tank experts from the US and India.

“The shrill drumbeat of Pakistani self-delusion cannot obfuscate the alarming ground realities of that country any longer,” Tewari said.

Tension between India and Pakistan escalated after New Delhi revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status on August 5. Reacting to India’s move, Pakistan downgraded diplomatic ties with New Delhi and expelled the Indian High Commissioner. PTI
