New Delhi, Dec. 4(ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has vowed never to visit India again after being denied visa by its government.

"I have no words to explain my disappointment," the Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying to a newspaper.

"Your government has dashed my hopes. I think it shows a lack of confidence on the part of India to face me," he added.

"I don't plan to come to India ever again," Musharraf declared, citing the visa refusal as an affront to his "honour and dignity".

The former army chief told the paper he was yet to be communicated the official reason for the denial of the visa.

"I think the denial has come from either India's Ministry of Interior (Home) or Foreign Ministry. If it is Interior, they were wary of the law and order situation, or my comments on terrorism, Kashmir perhaps. Or could it be what I said on Muslim extremism being on the rise in India? I frankly don't know," said Musharraf. (ANI)
