Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has warned India against embarking on any "mischief".
“In case India perpetrates something wrong against Pakistan, we will also retaliate and inflict pain where it hurts the most,” Musharraf said in an interview to SAMAA TV.
"We are not just any small country, we can also retaliate," he added.
Musharraf’s remarks came days after the terror attack on an Indian Air Force base in Pathankot by terrorists set to be linked to a Pakistani group Jaish-e-Mohammad.
The attack killed seven security personnel. Security forces killed all six attackers.
Referring to the incident later, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar at a seminar said "unless pain can be transmitted to them, they will always end up giving pain to us. I am pained when my soldier dies".
