India wants an anti-Pak Afghanistan: Musharraf
Washington: Pakistan`s former president
Pervez Musharraf charged on Thursday that arch-rival India seeks to
"create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan" as part of a bid to
dominate South Asia politically and economically.
Musharraf said Afghanistan sends its intelligence
staff, diplomats and soldiers to India where they are
"indoctrinated against Pakistan," something he said India must
stop and the United States should be concerned about.
"In Afghanistan, there is some kind of a proxy
conflict going on between Pakistan and India," Musharraf told
a leadership forum sponsored by the Atlantic media
"India is trying to create an anti-Pakistan
It`s ambition, he said, is to "have a weak Pakistan so
that it can be dominated, so that it doesn`t have any
confrontationist attitude which doesn`t go well with India`s
vision of dominating the region."
Musharraf said he understood that India does not seek
to take over Pakistan militarily, but rather it wants to
dominate Pakistan in the area of foreign policy, economic
policy, trade and commerce.
"That is how you suppress, you control or dominate
another country," according to the former army chief who
seized power in a 1999 bloodless coup and resigned as
president in 2008.
