Pakistan former President Pervez Musharraf has once again made vicious comments against India.
Speaking on latest Pathankot attack, Musharraf said that such attacks would continue. The former army ruler also said that India is over-reacting on the case.
In an interview given to a Pakistani channel AAJ TV, Musharraf said that there government want to control such incidents. “Terrorism is prevalent in both India and Pakistan. We are also victims of the same so we should not over react to what happened."
In Pathankot. Yes, of course we want to control such incidents, but one should get hyper over such incidents,” he said.
Although Pakistan has yesterday hinted that the foreign-secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan may be defered, Musharraf said during the interview, “India cannot threaten us by putting conditions ahead of such interactive sessions.”
“India simply can’t create pressure on Pakistan when it comes to terrorism. We may be a small country but we have honour of our own. There are lots of areas in India where extremism is rampant. India always treats terrorism as a one-sided issue and that infuriates me. They can’t just bulldoze us when something happens there,” Musharraf said.
“India’s first reaction to every terrorist attack is Pakistan but India is not free of terrorism or extremism themselves,” he added.
Musharraf also compared Prime Minister Modi’s leadership with that of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, he added that ties between India and Pakistan had flourished under the latter as he was more ‘sincere’ in his approach.
“I interacted with Vajpayee sahab and at the time we had very good ties with India. It all comes down to leadership in the end. We were moving forward with him and Manmohan sahab. Unfortunately, it’s not working under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi. His popularity has dampened post his loss in Delhi and Bihar,” Musharraf said.
