ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Saturday termed Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement over a possible change in New Delhi’s ‘no first use’ nuclear policy as a “damning reminder of India’s unbridled thirst for violence.”

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Twitter said history reminded us that a fascist warmongering state can never win.

"Another damning reminder of India’s unbridled thirst for violence. Contrast to Pakistan’s aggressive efforts to galvanise diplomacy as UNSC met for 1st time formally since ‘65 on IOK validating International dispute status. History reminds fascist warmongering state can never win."

In a post on Twitter, Rajnath Singh said that while India had remained firmly committed to the doctrine of ‘no first use,’ what would happen in the future would depend on circumstances.

His statement also drew criticism from Prime Minister’s Advisor on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan who called it a reflection of extremist RSS ideology which was willing to go to any extent to jeopardize world peace to accomplish its nefarious designs.
