Vivid News 24: Shashi Tharoor, a member of the Congress, confronted the Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday on the late former president of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf. Tharoor questioned the saffron party in a tweet regarding the 2003 joint statement and peace negotiations between the Vajpayee government and the military dictator.
If Musharraf were hated by all patriotic Indians, why would the BJP government negotiate a truce with him in 2003 and sign the joint Vajpayee-Musharraf proclamation in 2004? Was he then not considered a reliable peace partner? ” he tweeted.
On Sunday, Tharoor tweeted about the passing of Musharraf, 79, referring to him as an “implacable foe of India” who later transformed into a “genuine force of peace.” Using a speech by Musharraf in which he praised Osama bin Laden, the BJP criticized him over the tweet.
“Rahul Gandhi was hailed by Pervez Musharraf, who had previously praised Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban. He called Gandhi a gentleman and pledged to support him. Shashi Tharoor may be honoring the Kargil originator and a supporter of terrorism for this reason, after all. Sigh, “BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla tweeted.
I grew raised in India, where it is traditional to speak good of the deceased, Tharoor tweeted once more today. Musharraf worked for peace with India from 2002 to 2007 out of self-interest, even though he was an unforgiving enemy and the guy responsible for Kargil.
While he was not a buddy, he shared our view that peace had strategic advantages.” The architect of the Kargil conflict, Musharraf overthrew Nawaz Sharif’s administration in 1999 and took over as president of Pakistan in 2008. He passed away yesterday at the American Hospital in Dubai after a lengthy illness.
