Pak drags in Gujarat

Pakistan today used strong language to criticise Defence Minister George Fernandes's statement after the Jammu attack:

* Terming India's charge of its involvement as "baseless", its Foreign Office said such allegations were aimed at deflecting the Muslim world's attention from communal violence in Gujarat as well as "domestic difficulties"

* The statement took particular exception to Fernandes's "Insinuation" against Musharraf. The General could also have accused Vajpayee and his Cabinet colleagues of "training fascist Hindu terrorists to kill and rape members of minority communities in India," said the statement.

* Musharraf desisted from doing so, according to the statement, in the interest of "maintaining some dignity in the discourse between the two countries'.

* Meanwhile, in the largest one-off credit in its history, the World Bank will lend Pakistan 500 million dollars for economic reform and poverty alleviation. The structural adjustment credit will be approved in June.
