Former President Pervez Musharraf, in an interview with Indian TV channel Times Now, has blamed India for supporting militancy in Balochistan.
In the interview Musharraf says that India is ‘aiding and abetting Militancy in Balochistan.’ He goes on to say:
We have evidence and proof that Baramdagh who carries out attacks is sitting in Kabul, he visits Delhi and is recieved by RAW.
Just recently, when Musharraf was asked in an interview with Der Spiegel why he had formed militant underground groups to fight India in Kashmir, he had replied that “they were indeed formed. The government turned a blind eye because they wanted India to discuss Kashmir.”
However, in his latest interview with CNN-IBN, Musharraf said the ISI did not train Kashmiri militants, but admits they got shelter in Pakistan.
There is no question of the army, intelligence or the ISI creating Mujahideen groups, training them and sending them in… Hizbul Mujahideen group was created in your (Indian) part of Kashmir and then they ran away from there after military atrocities.
The former president has been engaged in a war of words with political rivals and former allies, and has made some startling revelations since he launched his party in London.
