Former Pakistan president General Pervez Musharraf on Thursday admitted that Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar is a “terrorist.” He informed that Azhar has been related to the bomb blasts in Pakistan too.
Earlier, China had defied India’s attempt to declare JeM chief Masood as an international terrorist in the United Nations (UN). China asserted that there is not enough evidence to prove that Masood is a terrorist. Musharraf did not have any comments on the same as Pakistan has not questioned China on this move.
“Why should China be involved when it has nothing to do with him (Azhar),” the former Pak president told a TV channel.
Musharraf criticized Sharif’s government for not being aggressive and accepted that the current Pakistani government has not done good in diplomacy on the international stage. However, he asserted that Pakistan shall not be taken granted by anyone.
The former president was also asked about the terror camps in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir, to which Musharraf said that he does not know about them. “I will let you know only once I get the count of these camps which you are talking about,” he added.
Referring to the surgical strikes conducted by India earlier, Musharraf said that Pak is a nation with nuclear power and no one can bully Pak.
Musharraf also targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his surprise visit to greet Musharraf on his birthday and said it was an artificial move. He also said something firm has to be done, both India and Pakistan need to come up with a formal solution.
