She stated that she has presented in her book objective facts and figures to conclude that the involvement of military in private business is “actually undermining the capacity, efficiency, professionalism and image of this prestigious institution namely the Pakistan Army.”

She has also rebutted the remark made by the Musharraf that he had never met her and “the book is sponsored by India and was written during my brief stay in India.”

She said that she would like to Musharraf that she had met him when he was the Military Operations Director General as a part of her academic research and had interviewed him for her first book on military decision-making.

“I would also like to assert that I had nothing, but the interest of the Armed Forces of Pakistan at heart while writing the book. I have presented objective facts,” the Daily Times quoted her, as saying.

She said Musharraf made this remark in an interview to Business Plus.

She said that she was sympathetic of the way Musharraf felt about her book, as he would not have had the time to go through the book. (ANI)
