“I think it’s another February 27 for India, they have once again received the ‘surprise’.” – Major Gen Asif Ghafoor
DG ISPR stated that India was under the impression that their tactics and political maneuverism will work in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) as well and they will succeed in manipulating justice once again; like they tried post-Pulwama to portray themselves as the victors. However, ICJ’s verdict didn’t play out in their favor that did come as a surprise to them.
He continued saying that the Indian media before the verdict was served, started broadcasting self-claims. A force of habit, perhaps. Their media once again showed unprofessional and irresponsible behavior. Furthermore, Asif Ghafoor commended Pakistani journalism and media for their ethics and honest reporting, saying that our media and relevant offices reported only once the verdict was out.
