Former Pakistani President, General Pervez Musharraf, died on Sunday in Dubai where the former Chief of Army Staff, was undergoing treatment. He was 79. He is dead but people in both India and Pakistan doesn’t share much of pleasant memories. Indian however, will never forget his anti-Indian attitude that had fanned terrorism across Kashmir.
Let’s take a glance at some of the controversies attached with Pervez Musharraf:
Dethroned the democratic government of then President Nawaz Sharif in 1999, in a military coup. Sharif was in Sri Lanka during the coup.
Pervez Musharraf, is also believed to be the mastermind of the infiltration of Pakistani soldiers in Kargil that later resulted into the Kargil War of 1999.
A death sentence was issued against him as the court of law in Pakistan had found him guilty of dethroning the elected government of Nawaz Sharif in 1999.
Pervez Musharraf, has always maintained a clear stand on the support of terrorism in Kashmir.
It was during the Agra Summit in 2001, Musharraf made tall convictions about India and Pakistan relationship but after returning he did nothing rather he instigated the Kargil war.
