    Afghanistan a 'playground' for India: Musharraf

    NEW YORK: Pakistan’s former leader Pervez Musharraf said Tuesday that India was trying to create a hostile state in Afghanistan as he hit back at criticism of his country’s role in fighting extremists.

    Musharraf, who is touring the United States as part of a comeback bid, said he has seen photographs of Kabul-based “Pakistan terrorists” a likely reference to Baluchistan separatists meeting in India with intelligence agents.

    “If I’m allowed to be very, very frank, India’s role in Afghanistan is to create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan,
    ” Musharraf, a military ruler who stepped down in 2008, said at the Council on Foreign Relations.
    “This is very clear to me. There are consulates in Kandahar and Jalalabad (which) are actually involved in creating trouble in Pakistan. They have no other role,” Musharraf said.

    “Why wouldn’t the consulates be somewhere in the north facing Uzbekistan and Tajikistan?” he asked.
    India has consulates in the southern cities of Kandahar and Jalalabad, but also in Mazar-i-Sharif in the north and Herat in the west. The Indian embassy in Kabul was targetted in an attack last year claimed by Taliban militants.

    Pakistan has long voiced concern about India’s role in Afghanistan. US officials have given little credence to the assertions, with President Barack Obama in a speech Monday to the Indian parliament praising New Delhi’s assistance to the war-torn country.
    India, not a traditional donor, has committed 1.3 billion dollars to Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime and is building roads, power lines and a new parliament building.

    Pakistan had been the chief supporter of the Taliban but Musharraf switched sides after the September 11, 2001 attacks and assisted US forces that overthrew the hardline regime.

    Musharraf bristled at criticism that Taliban and Al-Qaeda leaders, including perhaps Osama bin Laden, have been able to escape US-led forces in Afghanistan by crossing into safe havens in Pakistan’s lawless border areas.

    “Pakistan is trying its best. Why is the responsibility only on Pakistan?”Musharraf said. “Why is the responsibility of their coming into Pakistan not
    the fault of Afghan forces and US forces and coalition forces?””It should be shared at least 50-50, we are at fault, you are also at fault,”
    he said.
    “If I'm allowed to be very, very frank, India's role in Afghanistan is to create an anti-Pakistan...


    this men is always in news! however I dont disagree with him on this! ....

                    India's days of mischief in Afghanistan are numbered inshAllah. Soon the talibans will be kicking their butts since India was nothing more than a choirboy for americans.

                        While Pakistan, Russia, USA and Iran have been playing in Afghanistan for so long, why not have more playmates?

                          We'll see to that honey won't we? Pakistan's repayment of Indian mischief during the last decade through Afghanistan is long overdue.

                              Why do you object to India providing aid to Afghanistan?
