Lahore, Feb. 15 (ANI): Former Pakistan Army Chief General (retired) Aslam Beg has urged the people of Pakistan to find solution of national problems themselves, rather than leaving things to the rulers only.
We should not be mum over the wrongs done by US and India after we have admitted our crime regarding Mumbai incident. Our elected leadership has surrender to American dictation and it is working for the accomplishment of US agenda, keeping aside its real agenda. The people and the politicians should bring the matters in the Parliament to deliberate and should not attach hopes with the rulers, General Beg said.
Now, the only way left for the government was to revert to the Parliament in order to chalk out a strategy for national security and solidarity and sovereignty, The Nation quoted him, as saying.
On the US drone attacks, he said it was known to all that US base near Tarbela was working as nerve centre and carrying out operations in the areas like Waziristan, FATA and even Afghanistan.
All this has been done during the Musharraf regime. We had no problems till 2004 but when Musharraf was attacked and some Army personnel declared that the mastermind of these attacks hailed from Waziristan, and on this ground attacks were begun, General Beg said.
He claimed that Maulvi Nek Muhammad, who had made an accord with the Pakistan Government, was killed by America so that the war could continue.
More than 7,00 innocent people were killed and the tribals who always guaranteed the security of our borders were forced to think a lot about their future, he added.
Musharraf gave an open license to CIA to do whatever they wanted in NWFP and Balochistan, he said while adding that there are multiple US bases in Pakistan meant to kill Pakistanis on their soil. (ANI)
