In Response To: Siege of Makkah's Grand Mosque in 1979 (Syed Rahman, Riyadh)

In this article, the writer has not mentioned the vital role of Pakistan Army SSG lead by Major Pervaiz Musharaf [ later, General Musharaf, President of Pakistan ].

First Saudis called for French Commandos, who failed. Pak Commandos arrived. Major Musharaf successfully cleared Kaabah. Most of the attackers were killed and remaining arrested. When Gen. Mussharaf retired, King Abdullah rewarded him with an apartment in London and huge cash. Gen. Musharaf is alive. The writer should approach him and learn the true story.
While narrating such events full truth must be included.
