Pervez Musharraf Admits Training Terrorists To Fight Against India

New Delhi:

Former Pakistan President General (retired) Pervez Musharraf has accepted the fact that the Kashmiris were trained in Pakistan to fight against the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir. In an interview clip shared by Pakistani politician Farhatullah Babar on Wednesday on Twitter, Musharraf had called jihadi terrorists as Pakistan's "heroes".

He also claimed that terrorists Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Jalaluddin Haqqani, and others were "Pakistan's heroes".

"Kashmiris who came to Pakistan received a 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-Taiba rose in this period. They were our heroes," Musharraf can be heard in the video as saying.

Pakistan’s former president further said, "To push the Soviets out of the country, we had introduced religious militancy in Afghanistan to benefit Pakistan in 1979. We brought Mujahideen from all over the world, we trained them and supplied weapons to them. We trained the Taliban, sent them in. They were our heroes.”

“Haqqani was our hero. Osama bin Laden was our hero. Ayman al-Zawahiri was our hero. Then the global environment changed. The world started viewing things differently. Our heroes were turned into villains," he added.

Take a look at Musharraf's revelation:

It is worth mentioning here that Musharraf's revelation is nothing but proof that Pakistan has been using terrorists to fuel terrorism in the region.
