Dangerous country: Musharraf

New York: Pakistan is a “very dangerous” country, its former President Pervez Musharraf has admitted.

“It is very dangerous, yes, I will have to admit,” General Musharraf told Time magazine during an interview whether Pakistan was the most dangerous country.

The most dangerous country is Afghanistan, according to General Musharraf, who is now living in exile in London and is planning to return home to run for the President which he left in 2008. He is also wanted in his country in connection with the assassination of the former Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto.

Asked which is more of a threat to Pakistan — extremism or India, he said, “At the moment, it's extremism and terrorism. But you can't compare. Let's not think this is a permanent situation”.

“The orientation of 90 per cent of Indian troops is against Pakistan. We cannot ever ignore India, which poses an existential threat to Pakistan.” On nuclear arsenal, “...Yes, we have nuclear weapons, and we are proud of it. Nuclear weapons are the pride of every man, woman and child walking in the streets of Pakistan. Why are we nuclear? Because of India.” — PTI
