New Delhi: While the governments of both the neighbouring nations are making efforts to strengthen their bilateral relations, former Pakistan's president Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday threatened Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi of dire consequences if he dared to hold a perspective against Pakistan.
The former Pakistani Army chief, Musharraf, in an interview to a Pakistani news channel said that Modi is anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan.
“As far as my opinion is concerned about Narendra Modi, his attitude clearly shows that he is anti-Muslim and anti-Pakistan and there is no doubt about it. However, he has been elected as the Prime Minister of India and till now hasn't shown his cards,” said he.
The controversial Pakistani leader further went on to say that that there should not be any doubt in the minds of Indians and Modi that they can harm Pakistan.
“There shouldn't be any doubt in their minds that they can do anything to us. We are a strong nation and a nuclear power, so we should not treat him like a viceroy. We should just not pay heed to Modi and should leave him to his fate,” said he.
Slamming his remarks on India's PM, Congress leader Rashid Alvi said that Musharraf should not interfere in India's internal matters.
Besides him, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra said that Musharraf is an enemy of peace between India and Pakistan.
“Who is Musharraf to make such remarks? He is an enemy of peace between India and Pakistan and the one who triggered Kargil war,” said Patra.
Meanwhile, Union Minister of State, VK Singh called Pervez Musharraf a sick man.
"He is undergoing treatment. A sick man can utter anything. Why should we be bothered about it," he said.
