Remarks with President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan
Secretary Colin L. Powell
October 16, 2001
PRESIDENT MUSHARRAF: (In Arabic: In the name of God most merciful and compassionate). Ladies and gentlemen, I welcome you to this press conference. Let me say that we have had very useful discussions. The visit of the United States Secretary of State comes at a time of great challenge for Pakistan. His presence here symbolizes the new, rejuvenated relationship between Pakistan and the United States. We discussed a whole range of bilateral issues. The two sides agreed to work together in order to develop and strengthen cooperation in all possible areas.
The terrorist outrage in New York and Washington on 11th September was rightly condemned by the whole world community. The government and people of Pakistan spontaneously expressed shock and grief over the death of innocent people, offered condolences to the bereaved families all over the world, and affirmed solidarity with the American people. We joined the world community in offering cooperation to bring perpetrators, organizers, and the sponsors of the terrorist attacks to justice.
Compliance with the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions by the Taliban government would have saved Afghanistan from the damage it is suffering since 7th of October. We grieve for the innocent victims in Afghanistan. We regret that the Government of Afghanistan jeopardized the interests of millions of its own people.
Our decision to support the international campaign against terrorism in all its manifestations is based on principles. The extraordinary session of the OIC, the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Foreign Ministers held on the 10th of October has endorsed this position taken by Pakistan. It has also denounced the minority and fringe voices that tried to cause harm to Islam and the Muslims.
Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld (right) meets with Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, at the presidential offices in Islamabad, on Nov. 4, 2001. Rumsfeld and Musharraf are discussing the war against the Taliban and al-Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan as well as a range of bilateral security issues.
Well that is the brief life of a guy who was born in 1943 in undivided India ., Musharraf rose to national prominence when he was elevated to a four-star general, appointed by then-Prime Minister Sharif in October 1998, making Musharraf the head of the armed forces. He led the Kargil infiltration that almost brought India and Pakistan to a full-fledged war in 1999. After months of contentious relations with Prime Minister Sharif, Sharif unsuccessfully attempted to remove Musharraf from the army's leadership. In retaliation, the army staged a coup d'état in 1999 which allowed Musharraf to take-over Pakistan and subsequently placed Prime Minister Sharif under a strict house-arrest before moving towards a trial against Sharif in Adiala Prison. He was 10th President of Pakistan In office 20 June 2001 – 18 August 2008.. Now he is fugitive in Middle East
Well that is the example of how life of Presidents and Prime minsters goes in Land of Pure ., Reading again those highlighted words
well those fringe voices and fringe elements are still causing harm to Islam and the Muslims because we still do not know who is Muslim and what is Islam..
