Lahore, Sep. 28 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has admitted that his government's secret agreement with the Taliban had backfired.

The Daily Times quoted Musharraf, as saying that the Taliban had misled his administration.

He said on the one hand, the Taliban negotiated with the Pakistani government on the implementation of the Sharia law, while on the other, they called the country's constitution un-Islamic.

Earlier, Musharraf had fiercely denied playing a double game of supporting the Taliban while receiving US funding to fight them when he was in power.

"Get your facts correct, I have never double-dealt. There is a big conspiracy being hatched against Pakistan, to weaken the Pakistan army and the ISI, to weaken Pakistan," Musharraf told New York Times journalist David E Sanger, who had alleged Pakistan of duplicity in his book titled "The Inheritance".
