WASHINGTON — Gen. Pervez Musharraf, the president of Pakistan, has denied telling The Washington Post last week that rape has become a "moneymaking concern" in Pakistan and that many Pakistanis felt it was an easy way to make money and get a Canadian visa.

..."Let me say with total sincerity that I never said that and it has been misquoted," Musharraf told a women's group in a speech.

...The interview was conducted by three Washington Post reporters and tape-recorded. A review of the recording yesterday confirmed Musharraf made the remarks and was accurately quoted.
