New Delhi: Pakistan is now also planning its own diplomatic offensive against India after vociferously denying that it has any hand in the Mumbai terror attacks.
Islamabad is planning to ask its envoys to mobilise the international community and rally it against India's aggression after rubbishing India’s claim that there is enough evidence that Pakistani terror groups were behind the dastardly terror attack in Mumbai.
Pakistan also claims that it has arrested an Indian who is accused of setting off a truck bomb on Wednesday in Lahore.
Later, Pakistani Parliament demanded that India shut down terror cells and called on the world community to put pressure on New Delhi.
So now Pakistan is trying to be a victim of terror rather than a terror state.
"We want to make this clear that if there is any attack on Pakistan, the enemy will repent," says Mufti Munib-U-Rehman a prominent Pakistani Ulema.
Punjab Chief Minister and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's younger bother Shahbaz Sharif said Pakistani military’s nuclear capability has stopped India from launching an attack.
"If Pakistan wouldn't have been an atomic power, India wouldn't have spared us," said Sharif.
The final word from President Asif Ali Zardari vowing to defend Pakistan to the last drop of his blood was dramatically played out on state run Pakistan Television. But the exercise of claiming victim hood sits ill with the worldwide perception of Pakistan as a terror state not yet out of control but perhaps getting there.
India should not make the "mistake" of carrying out surgical strikes against Pakistan as such an action would provoke a strong response, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Thursday.

They are scared, the insecurity has brought the leaders to make such statements.
