‘Musharraf harmed Kashmir cause most’
LAHORE: Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid said on Saturday former military dictator Pervez Musharraf had harmed the Kashmir cause the most.
Talking to the media here, he said everyone knew that Kashmir was the real and major issue between India and Pakistan.
He said the Kashmir issue would have been solved by now and Pakistan would not be facing energy crisis and terrorism today had Musharraf not overturned a democratic government in 1999.
He said the ‘political party of Aabpara’ (a reference to the headquarters of an agency in Islamabad’s Aabpara intersection) had vanished.
“Where is the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) formed by Musharraf?” he asked.
The minister said operation in Karachi against militants was started after a unanimous agreement.
He denied reports that the Sindh government was not cooperating in the Karachi operation. He told a questioner that PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari was a Pakistani and had every right to return and live in the country.
