Former Pakistan president Parvez Musharaff in his controversial statement said that Pakistan had caught India by throat in the Kargil war and added that India would never forget that.
The statement by Musharaff had drawn, a adverse political criticism from Indian politicians. BJP spokesman Nalin Kohli told “The whole world knows about the Kargil War and how the Indian forces violently pushed out the intruders from Pakistan, and how, Pakistan was defeated in this exercise. I don’t know how Pakistan has arrived at this conclusion. But, it is not uncommon for Pakistan to create history, rather than look at the events, and even if required, fabricate history.”
Communist Party of India (CPI) leader D. Raja said, ‘India won the Kargil War: Musharraf should understand that. Now, he is an ex-army chief of Pakistan and he should understand that there are efforts to normalise the situation between India and Pakistan. He should not have made such provocative statements. Perhaps, he is doing this to find some space in the politics of Pakistan. Why is he digging up the past issues? The fact of the matter is India won the Kargil War.”
Kargil war, which took place in the mid 1999 resulted in the complete withdrawl of the Pakistan troops from the Indian territories along the line of control in Jammu and kashmir. The war has got wide criticism over the Islamabad policies from the world countries. It is probably the first war between two nuclear states, the Yahoo News reports.
