LONDON (Agencies) - Pakistan feared India was planning a military strike amid heightened tensions between the two nuclear powers following the Mumbai attacks, Pakistan's High Commissioner to London told the BBC Saturday. Wajid Shamsul Hassan said there was evidence that India wanted 'to teach Pakistan a lesson'. "This is what we were told by our friends, that there could possibly be a quick strike at some of the areas they suspect to be the training camps, an air raid or something of that sort," Wajid said. "There was circumstantial evidence that India was going to make a quick strike against Pakistan to teach her a lesson," he said. Wajid said he had received the information in the wake of the three-day siege of key sites in Mumbai. The High Commissioner said he alerted President Asif Ali Zardari to the danger and Islamabad's concerns were passed on to US and British officials who intervened to calm the situation. He said that in his opinion it was unlikely the two countries, which both possess nuclear weapons and have fought several wars since partition in 1947, would have ended up in all-out conflict. "We wouldn't have gone, and I'm sure India wouldn't have gone for full-scale war," he said. "But then, on the other side, how would we have reacted? That could be anybody's guess. We are a smaller country, we have to defend ourselves." India has so far made no comment on Wajid's comments. Analysts say that despite both sides' rhetoric, there has been no concrete signs by either side of heightened military activity, such as troop movements to border areas. Wajid termed the media report a fabrication which said that somebody else posing as Indian Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee had phoned President Zardari. He said that the phone call had come from Indian Foreign Ministry and it had been identified before putting it through to the President. "It was an Indian Foreign Ministry call and it was put through to President Zardari allowing for the gravity of the matter," the High Commissioner said. "It is absurd to say that it was a hoax call. I knew it here in London that something was being planned. My sources here in the UK told me that the situation had grown critical," Wajid said. He disclosed that it was not only the hoax call, but also a piece of information received by him in London that something was about to happen and necessary measures needed to be adopted. "At this I talked to President Zardari," he said. In reply to the question whether it was due to the same call that Prime Minister Gilani was asked to return to Islamabad from Lahore and a special plane was sent to India to bring Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi back to Pakistan, Wajid said it was not the case and there was no chaos at all. "We were careful that we might not keep unaware as in 1965," he added.
