Pakistan Needs To Be A Secular State To Have Better Ties With India: Army Chief Bipin Rawat

Darpan News Desk IANS, 30 Nov, 2018
  • Pakistan Needs To Be A Secular State To Have Better Ties With India: Army Chief Bipin Rawat
Venturing into uncharted waters, Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat today said Pakistan should turn into a secular state from an Islamic nation.
 
 
Pakistan’s turning into a secular state is essential if it has to stay together with India, the Army Chief said on the sidelines of the passing-out parade at the NDA here.
 
 
“See this staying together, staying separate, ispe Pakistan ko apni andruni halat dekhni hogi. Pakistan ne apne state ko Islamic state bana diya hai. Hum log secular state hain (Pakistan has to look at its internal situation. They are an Islamic state, we are a secular state),” he said.
 
 
Gen Rawat said, “How can we stay together if you say I am an Islamic state and there is no role for anybody else. If they are willing to become secular like us, they seem to have an opportunity. Pehle dekhen karte hain ki nahin karte (Let us see if they do so or not)?” The Army Chief also asked Pakistan to curtail terror activities.
