Indian Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh's remarks following the beheading of an Indian soldier on the LoC last week were "very hostile", Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said on Tuesday, as she asked Indian leaders to "catch up" with developments in her country.
"We were not very pleasantly surprised by the comments that we heard from many political leaders in India also. I think this is what has changed in Pakistan where India needs to catch up," Khar said on Charlie Rose Show of PBS news channel. "After the comments by the army chief I am taken back a few 20 years."
"What did he say?" she was asked in follow up. "Just very hostile comments," Khar said, adding she was referring to the comments made by the Indian Army chief.
On Monday, Gen Singh issued a clear warning to Pakistan, saying India reserves the right to retaliate at the "time and place" of its choosing.
Talking tough over the January 8 incident, he said the beheading was "unacceptable" and "most unpardonable" and the troops would respond immediately, aggressively and offensively if provoked.
