India is a country with heightened war hysteria: Musharraf

LONDON: Former Chief of Army Staff Gen (R) Pervez Musharraf silenced an Indian anchorperson over India’s dual policies regarding the unrest between the two neighboring countries.
He did not hesitate in avowing India as a country with heightened war hysteria and accused Narendra Modi, his External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and DGMO of spitting poison against Pakistan.
He said that Sushma Swaraj’s speech at UNGA did not indicate any intention of resolving the issue as she had called Indian-held Kashmir as India’s integral part. When the interviewer justified Swaraj’s speech’s content as need of the hour owing to present conditions, Mushrraf reminded her that it was Indian army that killed more than 80 innocent Kashmiris and, therefore, has itself generated these conditions. There was no contribution from Pakistan’s side whatsoever.
He also equated the idea of engaging in a war as lunacy as he assured that India’s strike will not be left unanswered and Pakistan will strike back befittingly.
He mentioned that both the countries have technologically advanced weapons and war would result in a large-scale devastation. He suggested to resolve the issues with harmony.
