Gen.Musharraf, former President of Pakistan from 1999, was born in Delhi, India. But he migrated to Pakistan during independence in 1947. He is a very good, straight-forward person, very much objective in his words. No one will hate him personally.
In 1989, he came to power through a coup by the military, when Nawas Shariff was overthrown and detained. Since then, the roots of terrorist elements were watered and grown. The present LeT, JeM, and other terrorist groups gained international attention. The groups grew rapidly and were instigated to fight in Kashmir, a part of India. Now, he is living in exile in London and has formed a new political party.
Now, in his interview to NDTV this week, he says that there is no wrong in helping the terrorists, who fight for freedom in Kashmir. He says that even he can infiltrate into Indian Kashmir as the border was porous and helps infiltration. He also says that it is right for the army to train the terrorists to fight in Kashmir.
This post is basically aimed to pin-point where the roots of terrorism is. His long interview to NDTV correspondent was nice to watch as the words come out from an Indian born politician.
He accepts that the Bombay attack and parliament attack are purely terrorism. But says anyone fighting in India's Kashmir is not terrorism, but freedom struggle.
He has to take a lesson on what is freedom struggle and what is terrorism. He has to understand that a fight for retrieval of a land, traditionally held by a social group, from foreign occupation is called freedom struggle. He has to understand that Kashmir was not held previously by Pakistan and there was no Pakistan at all prior to 1947. If traditional Kashmiris, who lived there prior to 1947, demand self determination, it is called freedom struggle. Another country sending infiltrators and creating disorder can only be called "second degree invasion". If they want Kashmir, they may send their army and fight. Training innocent illiterate village people in terrorist activities and killing innocent Kashmiris cannot be called freedom movement. If anyone in Kashmir State is not willing to be a citizen of India, they are free to go back to their own Pakistan.
India has tolerated this nonsense and nuisance for too long and I think the next generation leaders will set things right in the subcontinent.
Gen. Musharaff is a nuisance because, in the midst of a dozen political parties, he has started another political party, that too in a foreign country. Will English people vote for him?
He is a nonsense because, even though he knows well that Kashmir is India's and not connected to Pakistan in any way, and that Pakistan's own existence will be in doubt if another war starts between Pakistan and India.
He is a terrorist because, having led the army for more than a decade, he has sought the help of terrorist organizations to fight with India. In that sense, he is not a soldier. He is a terrorist. Is the Pakistani army less capable of dealing with India than the terrorists? Or does he think his band of terrorists will be able to defeat India?
I have been following his speeches ever since he announced his political party and he denies any terrorist attack during his rule.I was wondering if Afghanistan keeps invading them as they did in the Swat valley will they still be targeting Indian border instead of protecting themselves.There are a lot of terrorist attacks in the past months in their own country.
Mr.Talal Bugti, President of Jamboori Watan Party in Balochistan has announced a reward of one billion Rupees for Musharaff's head, in revenge for the death of his father Nawab Akbar Bugti during Musharaff's regime. He announced this in the presence of PML(N) leader Sardar Yaqoob Nasir on saturday in Quetta.
This shows how lawlessness prevails in Pakistan, ruled by Gen. Musharaff, for a decade. He has quit half-way before putting down the terrorist menace. Except his Kashmir policy, all his actions can be justified.
Regarding judiciary, it is simple... the judges acted and the General reacted.
