There was no response from either the Indian Air Force or the Ministry of Defence on the Pakistan claim.

At a press conference Thursday evening, Major General Babar Iftikhar, Director General, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) of Pakistani Armed Forces said at 1843 hours on March 9, “a high-speed flying object was picked up inside Indian flying territory by Air Defence Operations Centre of the Pakistani Air Force. From its initial course the object suddenly maneuvered towards Pakistani territory and violated Pakistan’s airspace ultimately falling near Mia Channu.”

According to a 2005 agreement between India and Pakistan on pre-notification of flight testing of ballistic missiles, each country has to notify the other at least three days in advance of the flight test it wants to undertake whether surface-to-surface, land or sea launched missiles. It further states that launch sites should not fall within 40 km from either the International Boundary or the Line of Control and the planned impact area should not fall within 75 km.
Pakistani Air Force, Major General Iftikhar said has “initiated requisite tactical actions in accordance” with the Standard Operating Procedures.

“Whatever caused this incident to happen, it is for the Indians to explain,” he said. Pakistan “strongly protests this flagrant violation and cautions against recurrence of any such incident in future”, he said.
Spokesperson for Pakistan Air Force Tariq Zia the object “was picked up at a high-altitude of 40,000 feet and was traveling at a speeding axis of Mach 2.5 and ultimately Mach 3.” He said the total distance it travelled inside Pakistan was 124 km, and from the total flight time of 6 minute 46 seconds till it hit the ground, it was in Pakistani territory for 3 minutes and 44 seconds.

“While we have recovered the debris… we can so far deduce it was a supersonic missile, an unarmed missile. Details are yet to come,” he said.

I am Still awaiting the Official Statements from Indian Officials and to see what they have to say. I never trust statements by Pakistani Officials Because we all know that they are "Pathological liars"!
Why statements keep them guessing this already prices that we can launch missiles into porkis without them retaliatiing or considering an act of war

You really think that Pakistan will not retaliate? I hope you remember what happened after IAF Bombed Balakot on 26th February. You know what happened? Pakistanis retaliated by "Operation Swift retard". Don't understand them so much

India preparing for invasion, Yogi Adityanath celebrating election victory’: Pakistan ‘experts’ make wild theories about alleged ‘Indian missile’

After spinning a whole war scenario, Hamid then stated that he has been told by some of his friends that the 'nuclear missile launch' was done to celebrate CM Yogi Adityanath's victory in the UP elections. He even added that he believes that.

Pakistan experts make wild claims about alleged Indian missile
PM Modi, Imran Khan, CM Yogi



On Thursday, March 10, the Pakistani Army claimed that a ‘missile’ from India was launched from Hisar, violated the Pakistani airspace and fell in Mian Channu city in Khanewal district of the Punjab province of Pakistan. The incident allegedly took place on Wednesday (March 9) evening.
As per the Pakistani army’s DGISPR, the missile was without a warhead and had come close to civilian airlines, and had come over 124 km inside Pakistan. General Major Babar Iftikhar stated “It was a supersonic flying object, most probably a missile, but it was certainly unarmed. When it fell, it damaged civilian properties.”
DG ISPR alleged that the ‘flying object’ travelled 124 km from Sirsa in India to land in Mian Channu city of Pakistan. Genera Babar, however, made it clear that the flying object was not shot down and that it fell on its own.
This claim has come while the Imran Khan government in Pakistan is facing massive protests inside Pakistan. On March 10, militias under the Jamat Ul Islami-Fazl had entered the Parliament lodges to ‘provide security’ to opposition leaders of the Parliament under the orders of JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. The police arrested several people, including parliamentarians Salahuddin Ayubi and Maulana Jamaluddin.


Fazlur Rehman has given widespread calls to all Pakistanis to march towards Islamabad, in protest against Imran Khan’s government.
While Imran Khan faces massive protests and unrest in his own country, the claims of the so-called -supersonic missile’ travelling inside Pakistan has brought out some wild conspiracy theories from Pakistan.
One Pakistani ‘expert’ Zaid Hamid, who keeps on issuing threats against Hindus and spreads fake news against India, had claimed that the so-called supersonic missile was nuclear-capable, and it was an ‘attack by India’.
Taking his rant to top-notch battle game level, Hamid claimed that the ‘nuclear missile’ was launched by India in preparation for war and invasion of Pakistan’.

Hamid claimed that the nuclear missile launch was India’s plan to test and evaluate Pakistan’s entire nuclear doctrine and validate their response.

Hamid further claimed that India’s “nuclear attack” was successful and next time, India will launch a cruise missile with a real warhead. He added that India is now ready to ‘invade’ Pakistan while Pakistan’s government is busy handling internal protests and unrest. Hamid’s inference was that India will soon start firing real supersonic cruise missiles on Pakistan and the March 9 was just a warning shot.
Nuclear attack to Yogi celebrating UP win
After spinning a whole war scenario, Hamid then stated that he has been told by some of his friends that the ‘nuclear missile launch’ was done to celebrate CM Yogi Aditya Nath's victory in the UP elections. He even added that he believes that.
Missile gone stupid
Another Pakistani ‘expert’ has claimed that there is absolutely nothing to worry about an Indian missile coming 124 km deep inside Pakistan. Because the Pakistani Army has not indicated any ‘hostile intent’ from that missile. He even added that Pakistan is capable of launching an appropriate response if needed. He concluded that the incident must have been a ‘missile gone stupid’.

While India has not issued an official response to the wild claims made by Pakistan yet, there are many observers commenting that Pakistan is making false claims to divert its citizen’s attention from the political turmoil the Imran Khan government is facing, and they are probably trying to take advantage of the media attention and public anxiety over the Russia Ukraine war.
Pakistan has summoned the Indian envoy for an explanation over the alleged missile firing.
Interestingly, the claims made by the Pakistani military of an Indian missile ‘intruding’ into the country’s airspace comes two days after the Opposition parties had submitted a no-confidence motion in the National Assembly against the ‘selected’ government of Imran Khan.

This time they won't. Bcz their army knows the truth of Feb event. And they succeeded in brainwashing their public.
This time India won't give any space to escape if they retaliate. They understand it and knows it well. IAF is in mood now.

People responsible must face court martial. It is very serious mistake on our part, it affects our reputation and concerned team must go through the military court.
Once I beat someone in school quite badly as he was a bully to me. My parents got called to principal's office and she scolded me and my parents for me being so short tempered. My parents apologised to her and the kids parent but when I got home they supported me cuz I once told them about this bully. True story btw

Yeh gya babasir hai mitron!

Missile launched accidentally due to technical error changes direction mid-course?
Either noone in MoD or PMO gives a damn about Paki response or they are really trying to troll Porkies.

You really think that a CM gets launched 'accidentally' into Pakistan? It is no gun that misfires. There has to be input for target and trajectory before the missile will even be able to launch. Even if I am to believe that the target and trajectory was preset into the launcher, then how do you think the preset target was a some nothing in nowhere?

Court Martial won't help. We need to load a missile with warhead and send it to Pakistan. The destruction that it will cause will open the eyes of those who did mistake. Practical example always help.
