“In 1990s the freedom struggle began in Kashmir…At that time Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and 11 or 12 other organisations were formed. We supported them and trained them as they were fighting in Kashmir at the cost of their lives,” Musharraf said in an interview to Dunya News on Sunday.

The former army chief was responding to a question about action against LeT’s Hafiz Saeed and Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi. He said Saeed and Lakhvi-type people enjoyed the status of heroes at that time.

“The Kashmiri freedom fighters including Hafiz Saeed and Lakhvi were our heroes at that time. Later on the religious militancy turned into terrorism. Now they (referring to militants in Pakistan) are killing their own people here and this should be controlled and stopped,” he said.

To a question whether Saeed and Lakhvi should also be “controlled and stopped”, Musharraf said: “No comments.”

Musharraf said that “religious militancy” was started by Pakistan which brought militants from all over the world to fight against Soviet forces. He said in 1979 Pakistan was in favour of religious militancy.

“We trained Taliban and sent them to fight against Russia. Taliban, Haqqani, Osama Bin Laden and Zawahiri were our heroes then. Later they became villains,” he said, adding that people need to understand the whole environment at that time.

  1. After inciting hatred and violence against India, this man is now confessing like he is on his death bed. I hope he gets the death sentence handed down by one of the Pakistani courts! He deserves it. Hundreds of Indian army officers and soldiers gave their life defending Kargil from this egoistic aggressor and he needs to pay a price!

    • Original R.Pai, “At least, Israel has a Prime Minister and fearless media who are NOT afraid to tell the truth about their enemy.”

      BUT YOUR MODI, HAVING GRABBED POWER IN THE NAME OF AYODHYA AND REVENGE, WHO ACCORDING TO YOU AND MODI HAVE ENDANGERED HINDUS AND HINDU RELIGION, HAS NO GUTS “TO TELL THE TRUTH”?

      HE, WHO GRABBED POWER ON THAT LAME EXCUSE, HAS REDOUBLED DUTY CAST ON HIM TO “SAVE THE HINDUS AND HINDU RELIGION”. HE IS TIMID! HE IS MISGUIDING HINDU YOUTH. HE IS NOT FULFILLING THE PROMISES MADE TO THE HINDUS DURING ELECTIONS.

      HE HAS CHEATED THE RSS, HAVING BECOMING THE PRIME MINISTER ON THE STRENGTH OF HINDU EXTREMISM PREACHED BY THEM. AND YET, YOU HAVE TEMERITY TO ACCUSE CONGRESS AND THE SECULAR CIVILIZED PEOPLE.

    • B. Dinesh – “I hope he gets the death sentence handed down by one of the Pakistani courts! He deserves it.”

      IT REMINDS ME OF THE KALISTAN EXTREMISTS KILLING INDIRA GANDHI FOR HAVING PRESERVED INDIA FROM DISINTEGRATION IN TO KHALISTAN OF THE AKALI DALS AND RESIDUAL INDIA.

      HAD SHE OUTLIVED THE KILLERS, THE RSS WOULD HAVE KILLED HER TO PLEASE THE AKALI DALS FOR THE SIKH VOTE BANK!

      • Khalistan and Bhindranwale were Indira Gandhi’s stooges to break the bone of Akali Dal. But the Idea back fired when Paki ISI high jacked it against Indira and India- resulting in operation blue star where thousands of Sikh devotees were trapped and killed inside Golden temple. Golden temple was totally destroyed. Indira Gandhi’s body guards took revenge by killing her.
        Till such time Indira Gandhi was very popular once she came back from oblivion, after imposing emergency. Thousands of Sikhs were massacred all over India after her assassination.
        Congress is solely responsible for de- stabililizing the country. Congress hands are blood stained -what intolerance they are talking about?

        Autocratic attitude of kongies can seen in their leadership even today. Slavery thy name is Kumblakai!

        • Mango Man says “Slavery thy name is Kumblakai!”

          Am I hearing this from them, the RSS, who, along with Mohammad Ali Jinnah, were the ……….s of the British Empires and conspired against the fight for freedom led by Gandhi and divided India?

          Is it not a fact that Advani paid homage to RSS co-conspirator Jinnah certifying him to be the greatest secular in the world?

          Is it not a fact that the RSS joined hands with the Sikhs, supporting division of India to create Khalistan?

          People who repeatedly supported division of India due to their supreme hatred towards Congress and their indefatigable lust for power, are now preaching like an old whore preaching the merits chastity!

        • Mango Man says, “Khalistan and Bhindranwale were Indira Gandhi’s stooges to break the bone of Akali Dal. … Paki ISI high jacked it against Indira and India- resulting in operation blue star where thousands of Sikh devotees were trapped and killed inside Golden temple.”

          Even though your allegations are false, at least you admit that “the Paki ISI high jacked it against Indira and India- resulting in operation blue star where thousands of Sikh devotees were trapped and killed inside Golden temple.”

          Why there were A K 47 guns, grenades and deadly weapons in the hands of every “Sikh devotee” inside the Golden Temple? Before the Army action, Indian Army asked the so called “Sikh devotees who were trapped and killed inside Golden temple” to come out and surrender. They were assured clemency too. The RSS wanted to brand these camouflaged terrorists to be protected. Why?

          They wanted the Golden Temple to be the Capital of Independent Khalistan.

          1. The person who set up the Government of Khalistan in exile in London,
          2. WHO SET UP KHALISTAN LIBERATION FRONT AND KILLED THOUSANDS OF ARMY MEN, POLICE AND CIVILIANS IN PUNJAB FOR TEN YEARS,
          3. WHO ISSUED KHALISTAN PASSPORT AND CURRENCY FROM LONDON,

          WAS PARDONED BY VAJAPAYEE GOVERNMENT AND WAS GIVEN RED CARPET WELCOME! WHY THE RSS DID IT?

          One should know how to differentiate the fascists and the democrats.

        • Mr. Mangoman:

          You are very right. It was Indira Gandhi who requisitioned the services of her son, Sanjay Gandhi, to rope in a Sikh fanatical element and a small-time preacher, namely, Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale, to create a wedge in the Akali Dal.

          Contrary to her thinking, it backfired or misfired and Bhindranwale turned out to be a Frankenstein, who gave her and her government a hard tight. Bhindranwale created a law-and-order situation in Punjab and was instrumental in killing thousands of people. Ultimately, his end came in a bizarre fashion.

          B.N. Pai does not like anyone saying anything unsavoury against the members of the Dynasty and he takes it as a personal insult. Indira Gandhi must be like mummy to him you know. So, be careful.

        • Mango Man SAYS:

          1. Khalistan and Bhindranwale were Indira Gandhi’s stooges to break the bone of Akali Dal”.

          If what Mr. Mango says were true, then WHY the RSS, Akali Dal, the BJP pardoned the traitors, held a grand reception and honoured all the office bearers of the “Government of Khalistn”?

          The “Government of Khalistn” had established the Khalistan Government in exile in London, establish Khalistan Military (which killed lakhs of Hindus and Sikhs in Punjab for ten years), which issued Khalistan currency and Khalistan Passports, etc. They were pardoned by Vajpayee, RSS, Akali Dal.

          The president of illegal government of Khalisatan, Mr. Chavhan, was provided the Royal luxury by RSS AND AKALI DAL, for having killed LAKHS OF PEOPLE (both Hindus and Sikhs) in Punjab. And of all the people, it is they who NOW pretend to shed crocodile tears FOR ONLY ONE THOUSAND INNOCENT SIKHS killed by mob at Delhi (IN COMPARISON TO LAKHS OF PEOPLE KILLED BY THE RSS- AKALI DAL SUPPORTED KHALISTANIS IN PUNJAB).

          THE MORAL OF THE INCIDENTS: A FEW LIVES OF RSS-AKALI DAL SUPPORTERS IN DELHI ARE MORE PRECIOUS THAN THE LIVES OF LAKS OF INDIANS KILLED IN PUNJAB BY KHALISTAN GOVERNMENT PROPPED UP BY RSS IN PUNJAB FOR TEN YEARS.

          2. “Congress is solely responsible for de- stabililizing the country.”

          IS NOT YIELDING TO PARTITION INDIA, TO CREATE KHALISTAN PROPPED UP BY RSS AND JAN SANGH, “de- stabililizing the country”?

          MR.MANGO, Kumblakai IS THE BOSS AND YOU ARE THE STOOGE!

  2. I would not pay much attention to Gen. Pervez Musharraf (Retd.), who is a pathological liar, a mediocre general, who was very stupid to truck with other three members that form the Gang of Four and hatch the Kargil Crisis. A General who is sound in strategy would not have ventured on the Kargil crisis. This was a folly on the part of the megalomaniac Gen. Musharraf (Retd.). Thanks to Pakistan’s Army’s support, he has to thank his stars that he has been just kept under house arrest.

    Nawaz Sharif handpicked Gen. Musharraf (Retd.) and superseded him over other seniors to promote him as the Army Chief and the rest is history.

    He has written one book, namely “In the Line of Fire: A Memoir” which is not factual, but contains a bunch of lies.

  3. Pakistaan is founded based on an ideology that promotes and believes in ‘taqiyya’ tradition. They would say and do anything to spread the same ideology. They might say different things based on time and situation. May be, many years from now, some Paakistani leader may openly admit how they provided protection to UBL and Dawood Ibrahim. These are no surprises to savvy, informed, educated minds. This is precisely why RSS never trusts these groups. Meanwhile, the illiterates will continue to promote ‘peace’ with ‘peaceful’ neighbor!!

      THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE RSS HAS DONE, AND IS DOING IN INDIA. NO WONDER. THEIR “HAND IN GLOVE AFFAIR” WITH THE MUSLIM LEAGUE BEGAN WAY BACK IN 1925 WITH THE CONSPIRACY TO DESTROY GANDHIJI’S CONGRESS, IN COLLUSION WITH THE BRITISH EMPIRE. AND MOHAMMAD ALI JINNAH, THE FOUNDER OF PAKISTAN AND THE DIVIDER OF INDIA WAS THEIR ALLY. THAT IS WHY THE RSS PRACHAARAK AND BJP GOVERNMENT HOME MINISTER AND DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER OF VAJPAYEE GOVERNMENT, LAL KRISHNA ADVANI, PAID RICH TRIBUTES TO HIM SAYING THAT THE DIVIDER OF INDIA ON THE BASIS OF ISLAM WAS “THE GREATEST SECULAR LEADER OF THE SUBCONTINENT!” HE VISITED THE MAUSOLEUM OF JINNAH AS A MARK OF THANKS GIVING.

      RSS SAYS NEHRU AND GANDHI DIVIDED INDIA. RSS WORKER KILLED GANDHI, WHO WAS LATER DISOWNED BY IT. ACCORDING TO THEM BRITAIN DID NOT DIVIDE INDIA. ACCORDING TO THEM IT IS DUE TO SUBHAS CHANDRA BOSE THAT INDIA BECAME INDEPENDENT AND NOT DUE TO GANDHI’S CONGRESS.

      AND DUPLICATE PAI OF RSS CONDEMNS PAKISTAN FOR WHAT IT IS DOING, FOLLOWING THE FOOT STEPS OF THE RSS. LOL. LOL.
