Musharraf accuses India of supporting terrorist activities inside Pakistan

Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has reportedly accused Indias external intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), of supporting terrorist activities inside Pakistan.


Washington, Oct 11: Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has reportedly accused India's external intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), of supporting terrorist activities inside Pakistan.

Musharraf said that India was involved in carrying out terrorist activities inside Pakistan, and is also supporting terrorists in Balochistan, the Daily Times reports.

He also claimed that Balochistan's Jamhoori Watan Party leader Brahamdagh Bugti was receiving aid from India and Afghanistan.

It is pertinent to mention that the former President had earlier admitted that Pakistan trained underground militant groups to fight against India in Kashmir.

During his interview to German magazine Der Spiegel, Musharraf said: "The West was ignoring the resolution of the Kashmir issue, which is the core issue of Pakistan. We expected the West -- especially the United States and important countries like Germany -- to resolve the Kashmir issue. Has Germany done that?"

When asked if that (the West ignoring the Kashmir issue) gave Pakistan the right to train underground fighters, Musharraf had replied, "Yes, it is the right of any country to promote its own interests when India is not prepared to discuss Kashmir at the United Nations, and is not prepared to resolve the dispute in a peaceful manner."

However, Musharraf has also done a volte-face on the controversial statement, saying that he had never said so!

"All these 'Mujahideen' groups got created on their own. I've never said that and there was a little misunderstanding in what I was saying, that got politicised in Pakistan and then people writing in India. But that's not the case," Musharraf said.

"I'm not that naive to pa*s such a comment. There is no question of the army, intelligence or the ISI creating 'Mujahideen' groups, training them and sending them in. That's not the case and it does not require to be done," he added.
