Currently Pakistan is doing all types of gimmicks to stop themselves from getting cornered by the super power nations of the world. Even though India had proved ample number of times that Pakistan is nurturing terrorists, its government never agreed to it.
But now the former President of Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf has confessed that Pakistani Intelligence used the terror organisation Jaish to attack India during his time. Musharraf made this big revelation in a telephonic interview with Pakistan-based journalist Nadeem Malik.
When Nadeem Malik questioned why he himself did not take any action against the Jaish-e-Mohammad when he was in power before 2007, Pervez Musharraf said “I don’t have a clear answer to this. Those were different times. Our intelligence men were involved in a tit-for-tat between India and Pakistan. They were carrying out bomb blasts in Pakistan and we were carrying them there (in India). This was continuing during that time and between all this, no major action was taken against them (JeM). And I also did not insist”.
Now this statement has come up at a crucial juncture that might put Pakistan in more troubles. Days ago Pakistani foreign minister Qureshi had said that terrorist and chief of JeM Masood Azhar is in Pakistan but is seriously not well. He even confessed that Pakistan authorities are in constant touch with him.
But in a damage control act, Pakistan’s Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said “Jaish-e-Muhammed does not exist in Pakistan. It has been proscribed by the United Nations and Pakistan also. Secondly, we are not doing anything under anybody’s pressure”.
The Balakot air strike that was executed on February 26th which came after the Pulwama attack has changed the equation of clash between Indo-Pak and has put India on the driver’s seat, perhaps for the very first time.
