The former Pakistan President accused India of adopting double standards on terrorism.



New Delhi: Accusing India of "double standards" on terrorism, former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has said that Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti "is a terrorist" and India should not give him asylum.

General (retd) Musharraf's remarks came amid reports that Bugti has formally sought political asylum in India, and New Delhi is willing to grant it. 

"He (Bugti) is a terrorist. India should not give him asylum," Musharraf told CNN-News18 channel.

The former Pakistan President accused India of adopting double standards on terrorism.

"You (India) cannot say your terrorist is a terrorist but our terrorist is not a terrorist," he said.

Musharraf also denied any Pakistan Army role in the Uri attack on Sunday, and warned of consequences in case of any military strike against Pakistan.

"You (India) should also be prepared for what would follow (if Indian army strikes)," he said.
