Kargil War controversy: Musharraf hits back at ‘imbalanced’ Shahid Aziz

January 31, 2013

Describing former Pakistan chief of army staff Lt. Gen. (retired) Shahid Aziz as an imbalanced personality who has indulged in uncalled for character assassination, former president and army chief General (retired) Pervez Musharraf, justifying the 1999 Kargil War, said there was absolutely no need to inform everyone about the operation.

File photo of Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf speaking during a news conference in RawalpindiRejecting the suggestion that he had willfully put a “tight lid” on details regarding the Kargil War operation when he he was Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff, Musharraf told the Express News show Kal Tak that former prime minister Nwaz Sharif was solely to blame for the defeat, though militarily it was a success in the sense that it completely exposed the Indian security establishment’s unpreparedness.

“If he (Sharif) had not visited the U.S., we would have conquered 300 square miles of India,” claimed Musharraf.

He described the Kargil operation as a localized one, where the exchange of fire was routine.

“Nawaz lost a political front which we had won militarily,” he added.

During the Kargil conflict of 1999, Aziz ran the Inter-Services Intelligence analysis wing.

“The prime consideration of such actions is security and secrecy, so the army leadership decides who is to be informed and when. As the operation progressed and the proper time arrived, a briefing of the corps commanders was also held,” Musharraf said.

The former president said that he was astonished by Lt. Gen. (retired) Aziz’s claim ten years later.

He said blaming the nation at this juncture of time, as Lt Gen (retd) Shahid has done, seems to be part of a conspiracy.

Indian TV show goes off-air after Pervez Musharraf’s back-fire on Indian govt, army

January 20, 2013

Former president Pervez Musharraf on Friday took India’s media to task for fabricating and cooking up false stories against Pakistan’s armed forces.

Speaking on Indian TV channel Times Now, live from London, Musharraf said India was fabricating false stories to put Pakistan’s army and ISI in bad light through its media.When asked by anchor why Pakistan was not acting against Lashkar-e-Taiba, Musharraf questioned as to why India was not doing anything against extremist party Shiv Sena.

“Can Indian government dare to take action against Shiv Sena? Are not they extremists? ,” he shot back at the anchor. Responding to a question about the long march, Musharraf said India had no right to ask about Pakistan’s internal affairs. But he said that Pakistanis want change.“Pakistan army did not mutilate the body of any Indian soldier and it never does so,” he replied to a question commandingly. He said India was deliberately escalating at the Line of Control. Pakistan army, he said, believes in resolving all disputes, including Kashmir, with India.“What kind of democracy you are running? You have kicked out Pakistan’s hockey players and artists,” he questioned?.”If you want to talk about Kargil. But first talk about East Pakistan and Siachen,” he said.
