In an interview to a  Pakistani daily, Musharraf has claimed that the country was not able to completely respond to shelling on the border as 'Kashmiri brethren' would suffer.

The crestfallen ex-Pakistan President's statement on Kashmir has come when his legal troubles in his own country are at an all-time high.

On Tuesday, the former President was summoned by a Pakistani court in connection with the murder of Lal Masjid cleric Abdul Rasheed Ghazi in 2007.

The court also made it clear that an arrest warrant would be issued if Musharraf fails to attend the November 8 hearing, rejecting his plea that seek exemption from turning up at the hearing due to medical issues and warning from Islamic terrorists.

A Pakistan daily quoted Musharraf as telling a private TV channel that the country has limitations in responding to the shelling on border as the 'Kashmiri brethren' would be the ultimate sufferers.

The comments have not come as a shock for many as it falls in line with his stated official position that “Kashmir is our (Pakistan) national interest and let nobody have any doubt about it.”

Musharraf  in a report published this week also launched a salvo at the Indian government and Army, saying they didn't bother about the plight of the Kashmiris.

Musharraf also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has always advocated good relations with neighbouring countries, branding him 'anti-Muslim' and 'anti-Pakistan'.

“Mr (Narendra) Modi (India’s Prime Minister) is an anti-Muslim and an anti-Pakistan politician. While negotiating with him one must hold cards close,” he was quoted as saying.


Musharraf didn't even spare Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif attacking him for attending PM Modi's swearing-in ceremony  in New Delhi in May this year.

“Instead of running to attend his (Modi) inauguration like we used to do in British Raj, we should keep our dignity,” the former dictator said.
Last month, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the 'Gen-Next' politician of Pakistan, had claimed that his Pakistan People's Party (PPP) would get back entire Kashmir from India.


Son of former Pak PM Late Benazir Bhutto, Bilawal's K-rant was ridiculed from all the corners in the country and branded as 'political immaturity'.


On the other hand, Pakistan's latest efforts seeking UN intervention on the Kashmir issue had also failed to draw any new response from the world body which reiterated that India and Pakistan need to resolve all differences through dialogue to find a long-term solution to the dispute.
