New York, Nov 10: Questioning India's role in Afghanistan, former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf accused India of trying to create an 'Anti-Pakistan Afghanistan' to brew trouble in his country.

"If I'm allowed to be very, very frank, India's role in Afghanistan is to create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan," Musharraf said while speaking at the council of foreign relations.

"This is very clear to me. There are consulates in Kandahar and Jalalabad... actually involved in creating trouble in Pakistan. They have no other role," he added, before questioning, "Why wouldn't the consulates be somewhere in the north facing Uzbekistan and Tajikistan?"

Musharaff, who has decided to return home to contest in the 2013 elections, also lashed out against criticism of Pakistan's handling of terror elements, saying any responsibility of failure rests equally with the US and Afghan forces.

"Why is the responsibility of their coming into Pakistan not the fault of Afghan forces and US forces and coalition forces?" he questioned.

"It [responsibility] should be shared at least 50-50," he asserted.

Musharaff is currently in US to win some support for his political comeback and his new party - All Pakistan Muslim League.
