Islamabad : Kashmir is in the blood of the Pakistani nation and the country and the army will stand by the Kashmiri people "no matter what," the ailing former military ruler Pervez Musharraf has asserted, as he returned to active politics.

General (retd) Musharraf, now based in Dubai, also referred to Kargil conflict, and alleged that India was repeatedly threatening Pakistan despite Islamabad's peace overtures.

"Perhaps, the Indian Army has forgotten the Kargil war," he said, claiming that India had to seek the US president's help in ending the conflict in 1999.

The 76-year-old All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Chairman made the remarks while addressing party workers on the APML's founding day in Islamabad via telephone from Dubai on Sunday.

He took a break from political activities last year because of his deteriorating health.

Kashmir is in the blood of Pakistani nation, the former president said, in probably his first public comments since the worsening of relations between India and Pakistan after the Indian government revoked Jammu and Kashmir's special status on August 5.

"We will continue to stand by our Kashmiri brethren no matter what," he said, adding that the Pakistani nation and Pakistan Army will fight till the last drop of their blood."
