Tensions have been growing between the nuclear-armed neighbors and rivals since 40 Indian paramilitary forces were killed by a suicide vehicle bomb in Indian Kashmir on February 14.
A downed Indian fighter pilot who was attacked by a mob and then paraded on video by Pakistan's army has become the human face of a spiralling crisis between the nuclear-armed neighbours. "My question is that given the weapons we have, can we afford miscalculation?"
In conventional terms, India's armed forces are numerically superior in both troops and equipment, making it likely that they would overpower Pakistan's defences if New Delhi ordered a large-scale assault.
"Pakistan is a responsible state and behaving in polite way with the arrested Indian pilots", he said.
The Pakistani civil and military officials have rejected the claim.
It may be mentioned that earlier this morning, two Indian fighter jets crashed one in Jammu and Kashmir's Badgam district and the other across the Line of Control (LoC), whose pilot was captured alive who has noe been identified as Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman.
The violence Wednesday marked the most serious escalation of the long-simmering conflict since 1999, when Pakistan's military sent a ground force into Indian-controlled Kashmir at Kargil.

India, earlier on Wednesday, shut several airports in the northern part of the country temporarily, leading to dozens of domestic flight cancellations after Pakistani warplanes crossed a disputed border into the Indian side of Kashmir. "I also encouraged both ministers to prioritize direct communication and avoid further military activity".
Even as President Donald Trump landed in Hanoi, Vietnam, for a landmark summit meant to tame nuclear-armed North Korea, the other side of Asia seemed poised for its own potential war - and without an intervening power, such as the United States, interested in calming things down.
India's UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin told Reuters on Wednesday: "Our efforts are focused on countering terrorism and we are working with many global partners in pursuit of that objective". "Let's sit together to talk to find a solution", Khan said.
A Pentagon spokesperson said acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan has been in contact with top American national security officials about India-Pakistan tensions.
Commercial airlines have been forced to divert away from Pakistan and northern India after two warplanes were shot down in the disputed Kashmir region.
India has alleged that Pakistan refuses to crack down on the militant organization and therefore bears responsibility for the attack. He said one Pakistani aircraft was shot down, something Pakistan denied.
Indian airlines including IndiGo, India's biggest airline by market share, low-priced rival GoAir and full-service carriers Jet Airways and Vistara, a joint venture between Singapore Airlines and Tata Sons, were forced to cancel services to at least six cities in northern India due to airport closures.
