BJP slams Musharraf's `double standard' on terrorism
Mumbai, Aug 2 (PTI) BJP today lashed out at Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf for his alleged double standards on terrorism and said the `real test' for Islamabad to prove its sincerity on fighting terrorism lay in `dismantling' all infrastructure facilities it provides to the terrorists.

"On one side he (Musharraf) joined the international campaign against erstwhile Taliban regime while on the other hand he justified `Jehad' in Jammu and Kashmir," BJP spokesman and general secretary Arun Jaitley said delivering the 8th Lalit Doshi memorial lecture here.

"Musharrraf joined the international war against terrorism against Taliban but at the same time said Jehad is not terrorism," he said.

Quoting Musharraf's `frequently changing' public speeches, Jaitley said his policy on western and eastern borders have been `different'.

He said the international community's perception about Pakistan's role in cross border terrorism has changed.

"India's effort to internationalise Pakistan's role in cross border terrorism has succeeded as against the Pakistani effort to internationlise Kashmir," he said.

Jaitley, who has been appointed Prime Minister's interlocutor on devolution on power in Kashmir, said the `real test' for Pakistan on its sincerity in fighting terrorism is to `dismantle' all infrastructure camps and help it provides in fomenting terrorism in Kashmir.
