Web Desk: Former president of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf blasted on “double standards” of India on terrorism after Uri attack in which India alleged that Pakistan was involved and the recent request by Baloch Republican Party chief Brahumdagh Bugti to seek asylum in India.
Pervez Musharraf said that Brahamdagh Bugti “is a terrorist” and India should not give him asylum.
“You (India) cannot say your terrorist is a terrorist but our terrorist is not a terrorist,” he was quoted as saying.
Musharraf also categorically denied involvement of Pakistan Army in the Uri attack in occupied Kashmir on Sunday which claimed lives of 18 Indian soldiers.
Former Army General Pervez Musharraf vociferously warned India against consequences of military strikes.
“The persons talking about military retaliation, including your DGMO (Director General of Military Operations) and your Defence Minister (Manohar Parrikar) should understand the consequences. If you strike at the time and place of your choosing, we will strike back at the time and place of our choosing as well. It does not stop at your action; what will follow should also be considered,” he added.
About the reported evidences of Pakistan’s involvement in the Uri attacks (especially the weapons which India claims have markings of Pakistan Army on them) Musharraf said that these could be could be procured anywhere in the world and do not qualify as evidence of Pakistan’s involvement.
