ISI has 'an ingress' in every terrorist group: Musharraf

Washington: Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf has alleged that Afghanistan is under influence of Indian intelligence agencies even as he admitted that there is "an ingress of the (Pakistani spy agency) ISI in every terrorist group". The question that arises post this revelation is if ISI has stake in terrorist groups and how much is the stake, if any.


"Afghan intelligence, Afghan President, Afghan Government. Don't talk of them. I know what they do. They are, by design, they mislead the world," Musharraf told CNN in an interview telecast Sunday.

"They talk against Pakistan, because they are under the influence of Indian intelligence, all of them," he retorted when told that "American intelligence, the Afghan government, Afghan intelligence all say" Taliban leader Mullah Omar is in Pakistan.

"The Afghan intelligence (is) entirely under the influence of Indian intelligence. We know that," added Musharraf who is currently in London.
Asked if Pakistan was not willing to really help Afghanistan succeed because it viewed Afghanistan as a client state of India, Musharraf said: "No, not at all. That is not the case."

"Whatever I am saying, I am not saying it here. I have given documentary evidence of all this to everyone. There is the documentary evidence. And we know the involvement of Indian intelligence, in India, with their intelligence," he claimed.

"I have given documentary evidence to everyone from top to bottom. Everyone knows it. And we have the documentary evidence," the former Pakistan Army chief said.
