Pakistan's former president Pervez Musharraf has said that India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is dominating Pakistan as the country has lost respect internationally.
Talking to Pakistani reporter from his exile in Dubai, the former military dictator said that Pakistan practices passive diplomacy and is isolated internationally.
Reiterating his defensive stand for Lashkar-e-Taiba, Musharraf questioned why pakistan accepted the LeT was a terrorist organisation when India did not accept that Kulbhushan Jadhav was an Indian spy.
“You tell me, does Pakistan have any respect, internationally? Our international diplomacy is flawed. Modi is dominating us, we are isolated internationally. Why have we admitted that Lashkar-e-Taiba is a terror group?” he said.
Furthermore, the former president called on Islamabad to assassinate Balochistan leaders in exile and other critics, and to deny any knowledge once crime is committed.
Musharraf, who has admitted to his direct involvement in Kargil War in the past, recently termed terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba and its ‘front face’ Jamat-ud-Dawaa as patriotic organisations.
“They (LeT and JuD) are patriotic people. The most patriotic. They have sacrificed their lives for Pakistan in Kashmir…,” ARY News quoted him as saying.
Musharraf had supported 26/11 Mumbai attack mastermind, Hafiz Saeed in the past. Saeed and Zaki-ur -Rehman Lakhvi are the most wanted terrorists in India.
