Karachi: Former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf said that before asking for Hafiz Saeed India should handover Army Colonel who was involved in the Samjautha blast which killed many Pakistanis.
Musharaff in an exclusive interview given to Mr. Wajahat Saeed Khan of Duniya News Channel’s “Mahaz” program told that Osmana bin Laden, Al-Zawahiri and Jalaluddin Haqqani are Pakistan’s heros. He also said that Pakistan trained “Mujahideen” and supplied weapons to them to fight against Russia in Afghanistan.
He claimed that PM Modi along with his cabinet has presented his performance before Shiv Sena.
He then said “What RSS has done, they are not playing cricket with us and you saw what happened with (PCB Chief) Shahryar Khan”. He raised the incident of black paint attack on Kasuri’s book release organizer. He also question who banned Ghulam Ali’s concert and thrown out?
He said “This is what is happening there. Are we catching any Sena leader?” He also said that Bal Thackeray was a terrorist and did anybody catch him.
Osama bin Laden was the hero of Pakistan and American CIA but as the atmosphere has changed now, the hero has become a villain, Musharraf claimed.
Talking about Kashmir, he claimed that many Kashmiris came to Pakistan in 1990s when Indian Army started killing them which resulted in freedom struggle in Kashmir. Pakistan gave them heroes’ reception, weapon training to fight against Indian Army for their rights, he added.
Musharraf while acknowledging that Pakistan trained and supported Kashmiri rebels said that LeT and 10 to 12 other such groups were formed. He also added that later this religious militancy converted into terrorism.
