    Musharraf, Sharif both planned Kargil misadventure: U S

    Musharraf, Sharif both planned Kargil misadventure: U S

    WASHINGTON: The United States has for the first time held both the Pakistan army's top brass under General Pervez Musharraf and ousted Premier Nawaz Sharif as being equally responsible for the Kargil misadventure. "Civilian and military leaders alike, at the highest level, share responsibility for that grave error which set back the prospect of reconciliation with India which had seemed so promising at Lahore, and also raised the prospect of a larger war between two nuclear-capable adversaries," U S assistant of secretary of state Karl Inderfurth said recently. "The Pakistani military, headed by General Musharraf, was an active proponent of the Kargil incursion. It was approved, we also believe, at the highest level of the civilian authorities including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. And, we do believe that it was a mistake," he said. Inderfurth said this week's developments in Pakistan as they unfolded with the deposing of Prime Minister Sharif in a bloodless coup by General Musharraf demonstrated it was "unclear" when bilateral efforts between the two countries could resume. US has demanded Pakistan to return to "civilian rule".

    Newspaper profiles of General Musharraf - obviously drawn up with input from the Indian intelligence agencies - suggest that while, on the one hand, he has no sympathy for hardline Islamic thinking, on the other he is intensely hostile to India. A Hawk on India-Pakistan relations. So Forget Peace with India now. Relations with India are going to suffer and there will be more hostility and suspicion from both sides. Defence budget is going to increase. Kashmir problem would not be solved amicably.


    He is one of the rare generals born in India (his parents are from Azamgarh, Uttarpradesh) before partition of India. He was born in New Delhi, India. He has to be more hostile than those native to what is now Pakistan.
