Former Chief of General staff Shahid Aziz says that Pervez Musharraf was bullied into supporting the US in the war on terror. He says the decision to support America was taken unilaterally before a crucial corps commanders meeting took place.

The former chief of general staff in an interview with Dawnnews said that the corps commanders during Pervez Musharraf's era were reluctant to support the US on the war on terror.

Aziz said that the corps commanders wanted to remain neutral in the US-Taliban war instead of actively supporting it.

During the interview, Aziz said that Pakistan's army intelligence had informed them about Indian lobbying calling for attacks on both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Shahid also accused the former army chief pervez musharraf of decieving other army offciers and corps commanders on the war on terror.
