London blasts will adversely impact Muslims: Musharraf

ISLAMABAD: Describing the bomb blasts in London as an "open act of terrorism," Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has said the terror attacks would have an adverse impact on Muslims all over the world.

"The London blasts are an open act of terrorism and will have a deep impact, particularly on Muslims all over the world," Gen. Musharraf said on Pakistan's Geo TV at a meeting in Chitral in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP).

He said Pakistan bore the brunt of terrorism "pouring" out of Afghanistan.

"We should move together with the world in the war on terror and this way we would remain on the safe side. If not, then we would be facing terrifying results," he said.

"We have to demonstrate with our actions that Pakistan is a moderate Islamic country; we will have to forge unity in our ranks and progress by developing our human capital and make use of our vast natural resources," he said. — PTI
