India conducted airstrikes in the Pakistan-controlled side of Kashmir on Tuesday, this occurred in the retaliation of Pulwama incident. India believes that Pakistan is the mastermind behind the Kashmir episode without any solid evidence against the country.
This is what Asif Ghafoor tweeted after the incident occurred.

One of the users asked if there will be any action taken against the Indians and now is the time for Imran Khan to show his commitment.
The problem now becomes PM Imran Khan’s commitment to his country – “Pakistan will not think about responding, Pakistan WILL respond”. What shape will response take? Where will response be? Will India have to respond to Pakistan’s response?

Ties between Pakistan and India have been tense since the Pulwama incident occurred in occupied Kashmir. New Delhi has blamed Pakistan of being complicit in the act — a charge Islamabad has denied vehemently and from the get-go.
Currently, we’re waiting for Imran Khan to respond and act according to the situation that was caused by the Indian air strike. From the celebs to local citizens – each Pakistani is eagerly looking forward to some update and response from the Prime Minister.
