The General and Jihad: Pakistan Under Musharraf

Wilson John (Author)
Synopsis No other country in the world has spawned and supported as many extremist and terrorist groups as Pakistan. The size of the Jihadi population could be gauged from one simple fact that Karachi alone has as many as 30 terrorist groups. Many of these groups are sectarian in nature; some purely criminal; others are aligned with Al-Qaida and the Taliban; all of them, however, boast of links with ISI. President Pervez Musharraf has claimed time and again that he has been trying to put these Jihadi groups in check. He has launched several high-profile campaigns to rid Pakistan of terrorists. He has even caught a few of them for the United States. Nothing can be more misleading. The War on Terror has only created more terrorist groups in Pakistan, more lethal, better armed and networked before September 11, 2001.  Musharraf, in the saddle since October 12, 1999, is singularly guilty of foisting lies and deceits in the name of fighting terrorism. The book, a collection of incisive and analytical articles, exposes Musharraf's, duplicity in dealing with terrorists, his policy of keeping the Jihadi option alive as a strategic tool and exploiting the presence of Jihadi terrorists in Pakistani to project himself as a savior of Pakistan. A keen observer of Musharraf since 1999, the Author debunks Musharraf's claims of fighting terrorism and reveals how Musharraf has hoodwinked the work through a web of lies and deceits, leaving the world a more dangerous place to live.
