Musharraf’s sensational comments on JEM :
Pervez Musharraf Former Pakistan President has said the Jaish-e-Mohammed(JeM)was a terror group but designated that his country’s intelligence had used it to carry out attacks in India during his regime.
In a telephonic interview to Pakistani journalist Nadeem Malik of Hum News in his talk show on Wednesday, Musharraf also greeted the action against the JeM, saying it had tried to execute him twice in December 2003, as per a video clip shared on the journalist’s Facebook and Twitter page.
When asked him about why he did not take any action to eradicate the group (1999-2008), he claimed those times were “different”. Both India and Pakistan were involved in a hidden struggle, “carrying out bombings in each other’s territory”, he said, adding his country’s intelligence agencies were involved in it.
Masood Azhar JEM chief is a culprit of various attacks in India, including the February 14 Pulwama attack in which 40 CRPF Jawans are brutally killed.
