Former Pakistan Premier Nawaz Sharif has charged that President Pervez Musharraf was acting like a "terrorist" and asked the United States to sever ties with him if it really wanted to wage a war against terror.

"Musharraf has himself said that he is a commando ... in my opinion there is no difference between a commando and a terrorist," he said addressing a gathering.

Sharif, who was ousted by Musharraf in a bloodless coup in 1999 and forced into exile, said if the United States really wanted to wage a war against terrorists, it has to begin with the Pakistan President.

He also said Musharraf had done more damage to Pakistan than India. "Even India has not done so much damage to Pakistan as the General (Musharraf) has ... What I say is the truth."

Sharif, who attended a meeting of Alliance for Restoration of Democracy on Sunday along with rival turned ally and former Pakistan Premier Benazir Bhutto, said, "the people of Pakistan have to decide whether the country should be run by its 15 crore population or a handful of army generals."
