    ISLAMABAD/KARACHI: Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday said he was "proud of the Kargil operation", during which Pakistani troops had crossed the line of control (LoC) and occupied positions on the Indian side in 1999.

    Musharraf made the remarks when he was asked about criticism of his role in the Kargil issue at a news conference in the southern port city of Karachi.

    Musharraf was the army chief when the operation was launched. He later toppled the government of premier Nawaz Sharif and assumed power.

    I am "proud of the Kargil operation," he said. The former President, who returned to Pakistan on Sunday after nearly four years in self-exile, said he had not struck a deal with anyone for his homecoming.

    He claimed he had returned to Pakistan in the interest of the country and the people.

    "I am among those people who think of the country and the citizens," Musharraf told said during his first news conference after returning to Pakistan.

    Musharraf, who returned to lead the All Pakistan Muslim League in the general election to be held on May 11, said he could not say how many constituencies his party would be able to win.

    He said he would himself run for elections from Karachi, where he has "old relations" with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement.

    He claimed his supporters had recommended that he should contest the election from a constituency in the Defence area of Karachi.

    Musharraf also defended his years in power as a dictator, claiming that Pakistan had prospered during his tenure.

    He further claimed he had been the only leader to raise his voice against anti-state elements and elements involved in spreading terrorism.

    Asked about the 2006 military operation that killed Baloch nationalist leader Akbar Bugti, Musharraf claimed it was launched by the government of the day.

    He said he decided to join the US-led war against terrorism in the interest of Pakistan and the country's destiny would have been drastically different if he had not made this decision.

    Calling a defeat a victory is done by only those who do not know what victory is.

    N doubt

    having a toll of only 359 soldiers at offensive level giving enemy a death toll of 500+ soldier in one go and again after 2-3 years a toll of +1800(indo-pak 2001-02 stand off) along with that succeeding in capturing the highest peak in kargil aka peak 5353 is one hell of achievement

    military and capability wise kargil was indeed a success but nawaz blunder ****** up everything.

    I believe that Mushy was just one step from Delhi :) what do you say Farhan.

    No problem given that he's back he can co-operate with his holiness zaid hamid for Ghazwa e Hind.

    Watch your Paki jarnail giving out the details sch as the number of battalions deployed (7+) in the video below at 2:00.

    The Newshour Debate: Truth behind Kargil incursion (The Full Debate) - YouTube

    Each Pak army battalion consists of 600-900 soldiers,so conservative estimate is that there were
    5000+ soldiers deployed.
    Structure of the Pakistan Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Very few were able to make it back to that means 4000+ Paki's were roasted i.e
    sent to their 72. If you can get your brain out of your arse, it would be easy for you to understand that
    it was a failed operation coming from a failed jarnail of a failed state.

    And refusing even the minimum courtesy of owning up you own when the dead bodies piled up, initially claiming they were mujahideen.... what kind of a commanding officer was he? All bluster and subterfuge.
    Still shamelessly trying to defend indefensible positions... what would have been going through the minds of the kin of the dead soldiers initially disowned and their colleagues who were still in the line of fire?
    Pathetic.
    He is not a soldier, he is a politician and has found his right calling now that he is contesting an election.

    Mushy was not wrong to quote that figure at that time as NLI was not reguler PA. It was a paramilitary force. The casualties accepted by PA were only for the sindh regiment of PA. Now if 359 from lone Sindh regiment died in that ops, How many from NLI died? Six batallions, 350 each makes it 2100 from NLI only and another 359 from Sindh regiment.
    BUT DID ANY MEMBER NOTICE THAT NOT EVEN ONE PUNJABI BATALLION WAS INVOLVED IN IT. Why??? Neither Sindh nor Kashmiris have ever been accepted by PA to be true Pakistanis.

    What can you speak abt a religion which allows rape of young women as young as 13? Or which is based on slavery only or which has no meaning for life and talks of only after life? Jihaad! how do you explain it?

    Pak officers themselves have accepted the failure of Kargil op. Musharraf fed his nation the lie of "succeeding to internationalize" the Kashmir issue when the only thing he succeeded is in begging Nawaz Sharief beg in front of Clinton to end his misery.

    to many fanatic people from packland , they won all wars against india

    so keep going

    kargil was bjp intelligence blunder and not musharraf success and he received a humiliating scolding from his boss Nawaz .....and we can be sure of that bcos later Mush took revenge by forcing coup on Nawaz.

    but once bjp decided it was time to act / it was executed with military thoroughness and never a doubt that every single enemy soldier would be flushed out

    jawans were unnecessarily lost .. due to bjp intelligence blunder and then slow reaction
