Pakistan exposed! We trained Mujahideens, funded LeT to spread militancy in J&K: Pervez Musharraf


Islamabad, Oct 27: In a startling revelation that would nail Pakistan's claims of having no hands behind sponsoring terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, the neighbouring country's former President Pervez Musharraf has admitted that his country trained militants for spreading militancy in the Valley.

In an interview to a local TV channel, the former Pakistan dictator was quoted as saying, "We need to understand the historical perspective. Indian army was slaughtering Kashmiris in the late 80s.

"We needed to fight their oppression. Pakistan funded Lashkar. Hafiz Saeed was our hero, as so were the Kashmiris who crossed over to this side of the border to wage Jihad," he added.

The former Pak army chief further claimed that his country trained Taliban, Ayman-al-Zawahri and Jalaluddin Haqqani to counter Soviets in Afghanistan.

"Haqqani, Osama Bin Laden were our heroes," Musharraf, who ruled from 1999 to 2008, added.

This interview from Pervez Musharraf clearly nails Islamabad's claims that it isn't behind cross-border terrorism in India and that it's serious on front of fighting terror.
