Musharraf wants India to treat Pakistan as ‘sovereign state’
Former military ruler claimed, in an interview with Indian news channel, that he was the man to introduce real democracy in Pakistan. Democracy is not just conducting elections, elections are just beginning of democracy, he added.
Musharraf criticized Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for visiting India to attend the oath taking ceremony of Indian PM Narendra Modi.
“If I were the ruler of Pakistan at that time, I would not have visited India for oath taking ceremony certainly”, he declared. He further added that I might have visited Modi separately after he had sworn in to discuss the bilateral issues.
Speaking about relations with former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Musharraf narrated a conversation he had with him.
“I said to him, Prime Minister Sahib, there appears to be somebody above both of us who has veto power on our decisions,” he said. He spoke of how he told Vajpayee that they were “both being humiliated”.
Additionally, with the cricket World Cup in our midst, it was no surprise that the sport and its role in the relations between Pakistan and India would be a matter of discussion.
“Cricket diplomacy can be done in a positive and negative sense,” he said. “We should use the sport to foster better ties,” Musharraf said.
