Pakistan provided terrorist training to Kashmiris, Osama bin Laden was our hero: Parvez Musharraf

Musharraf said: "Kashmiris who came to Pakistan received hero reception here. We used to train them and support them. We considered them as Mujahideen who will fight with the Indian Army then various terrorist organisations like Lashkar-e-Taiba rose in this period. They were our heroes."

Former Pakistani President retired General Parvez Musharraf in an interview admitted that Pakistan has trained Kashmiris to wage a war against the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir and has always taken pride in these ‘ Mujahideens’, touting them to be “Pakistan’s heroes’.

Terrorists like Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Jalaluddin Haqqani, and others were always considered to be “Pakistan’s heroes”, confessed the Retd General.

Pakistan politician Farhatullah Babar on Wednesday shared a snippet from an undated interview on Twitter in which Musharraf can be heard saying: “…In 1979, we had introduced religious militancy in Afghanistan to benefit Pakistan and to push Soviet out of the country. We brought Mujahideen from all over the world, we trained them, supplied weapons. They were our heroes. Haqqani was our hero. Osama bin Laden was our hero. Then the environment was different but now it is different. Heroes have turned to villains.”

Sharing the video clip the Pakistani politician wrote: “Gen Musharraf blurts that militants were nurtured and touted as ‘heroes’ to fight in Kashmir. If it resulted in the destruction of two generations of Pashtuns it didn’t matter. Is it wrong to demand the Truth Commission to find who devised self-serving policies that destroyed Pashtuns?

In an obvious revelation, which goes on to add another evidence that Pakistan has been providing safe heaven to its trained and nurtured terrorists to fuel tensions in the region, Musharraf said: “Kashmiris who came to Pakistan received hero reception here. We used to train them and support them. We considered them as Mujahideen who will fight with the Indian Army then various terrorist organisations like Lashkar-e-Taiba rose in this period. They were our heroes.”

Earlier, in another interview when Musharraf was asked to comment on Pakistan’s pretence of cracking down on terror, the former military ruler had admitted that Pakistan’s intelligence agencies, ISI, were hands in gloves with Jaish-e-Mohammad to carry out bomb blasts in India.

India has time and again reiterated, on various international platforms, that Pakistan has been creating, nurturing and supplying terrorism in the region to create unrest in neighbouring nations.
