New Delhi: The former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf had claimed on Wednesday that the Jaish-e-Mohammed was a terror outfit but indicated that his country's intelligence had used it to carry out attacks in India during his tenure.

The former President of Pakistan, made the disclosure in a telephonic interview to Pakistani journalist Nadeem Malik of Hum News in his talk show, where he also welcomed the action against the Jaish-e-Mohammed, saying it had tried to assassinate him twice in December 2003, as per a video clip shared on the journalist's Facebook and Twitter page.

When questioned, why he did not take any action against the organisation during his ruling period, (1999-2008), he claimed those times were "different".

He said that, amid all this not much action was taken against the JeM adding that he had also not insisted.

The Jaish-e-Mohammad, led by Masood Azhar is accused of various attacks in India, including the February 14 Pulwama attack which claimed the life of over 40 CRPF soldiers.
