A Pakistani view of 9 11

In Pakistan, Qazi Hussain Ahmad has said that 9/11 was a planned conspiracy to crush Muslims.

Qazi Hussain Ahmad is president of the the Islamist Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA)
the six-party religious alliance that constitutes one-fifth of the country's parliament.

After the fall of Communism, the US made Muslims its prime target, explained Qazi.

Qazi said the Pakistani government was working as an “agent” of the US and NATO, who have established military bases in Afghanistan near Pakistani borders.

He said that General Pervez Musharraf is working as an American ally against Islamic movements and is also a friend of India. He condemned Musharraf for saying that Israeli premier Ariel Sharon was a brave general and soldier.The MMA accused Gen Musharraf of provoking people against religious forces and asking them not to vote for religious parties because they are extremists, which was a violation of the constitution. He said that Musharraf was an opponent of Muslim unity and was dividing the Muslims.
