New York: Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's claims in his book In The Line of Fire, continues to draw criticism.
The latest comes from former US Ambassador to India Robert Blackwill.
Blackwill has rubbished Musharraf’s claim that the military stand-off following the attack on Indian Parliament in 2001, ended because India lost its nerve and 'blinked' first.
"That’s a completely erroneous account of what happened. I hope it doesn't reflect of supreme overconfidence that India's not capable of defending it's own people and its own interest because of course it is. We can all be very grateful it didn't happen but if India had been pushed further it would've happened coz they simply wouldn't have tolerated an attack on its Parliament. It’s seed of democracy that occurred from across the border originating in Pakistan," Blackwill said.
