Lahore, July 21 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf has once again raised the issue of Kashmir, calling for an early settlement of the dispute.

Addressing a seminar at the Committee House of the British Parliament in London, Musharraf termed the issue as "critical", and said its resolution was the key to peace and prosperity in the region.

Commenting on the Taliban threat, Musharraf said insurgents had entered Pakistan through Afghanistan and rejected the notion that all Pashtuns were Taliban.

Musharraf said it was not only Al-Qaeda or the Taliban involved in the Afghan war, but there are several extremist groups fighting against the US-led allied forces.

Earlier, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) activists were stopped from entering the Committee House and holding protest against Musharraf.

According to the Daily Times, Lord Nazir Ahmad was also stopped from participating in the seminar.

He, however, defied the security officials and raised objections to Musharraf's speech.

There was a huge ruckus outside the Committee House and police had to be called in to bring the situation under situation. (ANI)
