Post Uri terror attack and the row of accusation by India over Pakistan’s involvement in the militant activity, former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf, today said that it is sad that the incident is being escalated.

“Why are you taking that Pakistan government and army is involved in the terrorist attack,” questioned Musharraf in an interview with India Today.

The former army General also questioned India’s interference in the Balochistan. “50% of Balochis are strongly pro-Pakistan, and the remaining 50% in south coastal region are not anti-Pakistan,” he said.

Musharraf also blamed India’s RAW of facilitating separatism going on in Balochistan. He claimed that India influences the world more effectively than Pakistan is able to counter them. The former President accused External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj of spreading fire against Pakistan in the global platform.

Stating that there is no human rights violations in butchering anti-Pakistanis, Musharraf said,“any person who is in Pakistan, burns Pakistan’s flag and is anti-Pakistan should be butchered.”

Speaking of the Indus Water Treaty, Musharraf dared India to stop water supply to Pakistan. “If you want to stop waters to Pakistan you are escalating the conflict to a very serious level,” he said.

Musharraf also claimed Burhan Wani as a ‘great freedom fighter’ and blamed the Indian government of ignorance towards looking at the 80 people killed during unrest in the Kashmir valley by the Indian army.

The former President said that India and Pakistan can have peace by addressing core issues and by ‘give and take’. “I believe in having peace with India but not at the cost of us,” he said.
