Pakistan Intelligence Used Jaish For Attacks In India: Pervez Musharraf
Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday claimed the Jaish-e-Mohammed was a terror outfit but indicated that his country’s intelligence had used it to carry out attacks in India during his tenure.
Making the disclosure in a telephonic interview to Pakistani journalist Nadeem Malik of Hum News in his talk show, Pervez Musharraf also welcomed the action against the Jaish-e-Mohammed, saying it had tried to assassinate him twice in December 2003, as per a video clip shared on the journalist’s Facebook and Twitter page.
Asked why he had not taken action against the organisation during his stint in power (1999-2008), he claimed those times were “different”.
Amid all this, not much action was taken against the JeM, he said, adding that he had also not insisted.
