    Pak Army fully committed to peace talks with India, says Musharraf

    Former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf on Thursday said Pakistan's military and civilian leadership are on the same page regarding peace initiatives with India, but added that he does not see any progress in dialogue on core issues as India is only interested in discussing their own problems.

    Giving an interview to an Indian news channel, India Today, the former military ruler asserted that military is "200 per-cent" on board regarding the peace process with India but "India only wants to talk about its own issues like Mumbai and Pathankot. It wants to dominate and bully Pakistan".

    "India derailed the peace process every time and it only wants to discuss terrorism," Musharraf said.

    Answering a question about Jaish-e-Mohammad leader Masood Azhar, Musharraf termed Azhar a terrorist because he is "involved in terrorist activities across Pakistan", but repeated his stance that whoever is fighting in Kashmir is a freedom fighter.

    When asked about the revelations of David Coleman Headley, a Pakistani-American who allegedly helped plan 2008 Mumbai attacks, the former president said he cannot comment on any of Headley's statements until he is in Indian intelligence's custody because "he can be manipulated and can be forced to say anything".

    "I don't believe what he's saying unless our investigation and intelligence says the same," Musharraf maintained.

    It is pertinent to note here that in December last year Musharraf had told BBC Urdu that those fighting in Indian-held Kashmir (IHK) were 'mujahideen' and 'freedom fighters' and not terrorists as India calls them.

    “Considering the atrocities and the treatment meted out to the Muslim majority in IHK, several groups such as Lashkar-i-Taiba and Jaish-i-Muhammad emerged. They were ready to lay down their lives for their Kashmiri brethren, we call them freedom fighters, not Taliban or terrorist,” Musharraf had said.

    The former army chief had also claimed that there was no 'Taliban presence' in Kashmir.

    Headley's statement
    Earlier this week, David Headley gave an Indian court in Mumbai the details of his role in planning the Mumbai attack, in which more than 160 people were killed over three days when a group of 10 men rampaged across the city.

    Headley repeated the statements he had made earlier, blaming Pakistan's main spy agency of its alleged involvement in planning the attack's preparations and execution.

    Headley said he supplied his handlers in the Lashkar-i-Taiba with videos and maps of luxury hotels, a Jewish centre and the city's main railway station that were attacked, Prosecutor Ujwal Nikam told reporters after Monday's five hours of testimony.

    PTI | Feb 11, 2016, 08.47 PM IST

    rvez Musharraf on Thursday said ISI trains LeT and Jaish militants and terror attacks in India will not stop until New Delhi addresses the "core" issue of Kashmir.
    "Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) trains Jaish-e- Mohammad (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists," said Musharraf.
    "Pakistan army is not training civilians. Intelligence organisation on our side as well as on your side is involved," he said in an interview to India Today TV.

    ISI, not Pak. Army trains LeT, Jaish: Musharraf

    Anyone who is fighting in Kashmir is a freedom fighter, says Pakistan’s former military ruler.

    Pakistan’s former military ruler Pervez Musharraf on Thursday said ISI trains LeT and Jaish militants and terror attacks in India will not stop until New Delhi addresses the “core” issue of Kashmir.

    “Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) trains Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists,” said Mr. Musharraf.

    “Pakistan Army is not training civilians. Intelligence organisation on our side as well as on your side is involved,” he said in an interview to India Today TV.

    When asked if he sees any progress in the India-Pakistan peace process, Mr. Musharraf said, “Everything will stop if you address the core issue. That is what you don’t want to do,” he said. “Kashmir continues to arouse sentiments in Pakistan,” said Mr. Musharraf. “Anyone who is fighting in Kashmir is a freedom fighter,” he said.

    “You don’t want [to move forward on the core issue]. You want to bulldoze us, you want to bully us and you want to dominate us. You only want to talk about issues concern you like terrorism, Mumbai and Pathankot. So I don’t feel, core issues are moving forward,” he said when asked to comment on Foreign Secretary-level talks that were postponed after Pathankot attack.
