New Delhi: Every day some new revelations are coming to the fore regarding the Kargil war which has put the former President of Pakistan General Pervez Musharraf in a tight spot.

People in Pakistan are demanding an inquiry against Musharraf for being directly involved and pushing the country to war with India. If the Pakistani government agrees to the demand and the inquiry holds Musharraf guilty then he may face death penalty.

Meanwhile, former ISI Director General Ziauddin Butt has clearly said that Musharraf has on several occasions given misleading information to the country regarding Kargil war and none of his statements are trustworthy. In a seminar, Butt went a step ahead and said that after the inquiry no one can save Musharraf from being awarded death penalty. He also termed retired Colonel Ashfaq Hussain’s book ‘Witness to Blunder’ as concrete evidence against Pervez Musharraf.

Notably, Ashfaq Hussain had recently revealed that Gen Pervez Musharraf on March 28, 1999 had crossed the Line of Control (LoC) in a helicopter and spent a night at a location 11km inside Indian territory. Hussain in his book has accused Musharraf of forcing war on Pakistan. He has also blamed Musharraf for refusing to recognise the dead bodies of his soldiers and take them back.

Meanwhile, various political parties and the people in Pakistan seem to have opened front against Musharraf. Probably this is why Musharraf who has been living in exile in London for past many years is hesitant in returning to Pakistan.

Musharraf has however denied the allegations leveled against him and has instead blamed India for violating the LoC and pushing Pakistan to war. He has also raised fingers on the then Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif for not cooperating with him and the army during Kargil war.
