ISLAMABAD: Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has admitted that Kashmiris had been skilled in Pakistan to battle in opposition to Indian Military in Kashmir and touted as ‘heroes’.
Musharraf stated that terrorist like Osama bin Laden and Jalaluddin Haqqani used to be “Pakistani heroes”.
In an undated interview clip shared by Pakistan politician Farhatullah Babar on Wednesday on Twitter, Musharraf can be heard saying, “…In 1979, we had introduced religious militancy in Afghanistan to benefit Pakistan and to push Soviet out of the country. We brought Mujahideen from all over the world, we trained them, supplied weapons. They were our heroes. Haqqani was our hero. Osama bin Laden was our hero. Then the environment was different but now it is different. Heroes have turned to villains.”
Whereas speaking about unrest in Kashmir, the self-exiled dictator stated, “… Kashmiris who came to Pakistan received hero reception here. We used to train them and support them. We considered them as Mujahideen who will fight with the Indian Army then various terrorist organisations like Lashkar e Tayyiba rose in this period. they were our heroes.”
The revelation by Musharraf is nothing however proof that Pakistan, which claims to don’t have any interference in Kashmir, has been utilizing terrorists to gasoline tensions within the area.
India has repeatedly accused Pakistan of utilizing its soil to perpetrate terror in neighbouring nations. Islamabad has been requested by the worldwide group to take actions in opposition to terrorist teams working within the nation.
