The tweets were in response to Vikram Chandra's comment on Twitter on a news article about Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's remarks at United Nations that they will never accept any political or military role for India in Afghanistan. The Pakistan Prime Minister's views were in response to US President Donald Trump's Afghanistan Policy.
"Who is Pakistan to accept or not accept?!" tweeted Vikram Chandra along with a link to the article.

Pakistan Defence, that describes itself as the "one stop resource" for Pakistan defence, reacted with a barrage of tweets which many labelled as 'threatening'. Among them a tweet that said, "Why don't you try and find out?"
