Srinagar: Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has come out in support of the LeT Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD), saying they were the biggest force against the Indian Army in Kashmir, media reports said on Wednesday.
Reports quoting Musharraf’s interview on Pakistan’s ARY News, said, “I am the biggest supporter of the LeT and I know they like me and the JuD also likes me.”
He further said he liked JuD chief Hafiz Saeed, and had met him.
The former president added he was always in favour of “action in Kashmir”, and the LeT and the JuD were the biggest forces to take on the Indian Army in the state.
“I was always in favour of action in Kashmir and of suppressing the Indian Army in Kashmir and they [LeT] are the biggest force,” Musharraf said.
He also accused India of declaring the LeT and the JuD as terror groups with the help of the United States.
“India got them declared as terrorists by partnering with the US,” Musharraf said, adding,” Yes, they [LeT] are involved in Kashmir and in Kashmir it is, between, we [Pakistan] and India.” KR WEB DESK
