NEW DELHI, May 30 : Retorting to architect of Pakistan's nuclear programme, Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan's threatening remarks, Indian experts said that India too is capable of targeting whole of Pakistan.
Speaking on the anniversary of first nuclear tests in Pakistan, Khan was quoted as saying that nuclear-armed Pakistan has the ability to target Indian capital Delhi from Kahuta near Rawalpindi in five minutes.
Condemning his remarks, Director of Vivekanand International Foundation, former Army chief Gen NC Vij said that India too can target whole of Pakistan, but nuclear weapons are meant for resistance and not for attacks, states Nav Bharat Times report.
"Let's assume that Pakistan Army General supposedly gives order for nuclear attack tomorrow, even then it will take them around six hours to initiate the process considering the peacetime vigilance," he added.
Furthermore, Distinguished Fellow at the Centre for Air Power Studies Air Vice Marshal Manmohan Bahadur told NBT that AQ Khan's remark was nothing, but a mere publicity stunt.
