ISLAMABAD: Former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf on Monday said that former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif’s statement pertaining to 2011 Mumbair attack was deplorable.
In a video message, he said that he briefed former premier Nawaz Sharif two times on Kargil, adding that the PML-N supremo had said we should wave Pakistan’s flag in Srinagar.
Musharraf said that Pakistan’s armed forces had an uper hand on Indian forces at five points during Kargil war.
He went on to say that New Delhi pressurised PML-N government through US following which then prime minister Nawaz Sharif ordered armed forces to withdraw from the US.
“Sharif’s order to withdraw from Kargil was a wrong intiative,” the ex-president said and added PML-N leader Zafarul Haq and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader Chaudjry Shujaat had opposed the withdrawal.
He said that Nawaz Sharif had accused him of withdrawing forces from Kargil.
Musharraf further said that Pakistan wasn’t involved in Mumbai attack, adding that the ex-PM was giving statements as he is facing cases.
