A visibly aggressive Musharraf, in turn, heaped the blame of deteriorating relations with India on the latter, saying that there has been no effort from India to maintain civilised relations.
“Beheading a soldier and sending back his body is inexcusable. However, knowing the Pakistan Army, I can say for sure that it is not in our culture to do something as horrific as that. No disciplined army would do that,” said Musharraf.
When grilled further about the Pakistan Army’s nexus with militants like the Lashkar-e-Taiba, Musharraf said: “We are not mad people. Stop painting us as rogues when you yourself are not prepared to admit all the cruelty that you inflict on us. Let alone LoC, what is the logic behind kicking our singers out, sending back our hockey players?”
The former President of Pakistan went on to add that India has always had an inclination to be hysterical about everything. “The politicians, media everyone in India have a tendency to be hysterical about everything,” he added.
