GUESTS- KHURSHEED SHAH, MASOOD SHARIF KHATTAK, IRFAN ULLAH MARWAT, MUSTAFA AZIZABADI
KHURSHEED SHAH OF PPPP said that if the government had told that 1.5 billion dollars is the aid from Saudi Arabia the things were not going to get confused. He said that because government did not give any clarification about 1.5 billion dollars aid it caused many rumors.
He said that the case against Musharaf is very complicated and the government should start the case from 12th of October instead of 3rd of November. He said that on 12th of October Musharaf over threw an elected government and put PM in jail. He said that the government is avoiding the 12th of October coup because it also includes the names of some judges.
He said that our point of view on Syria is that we should not get involved in the war of other countries.
He said that we want peace in the country does not matter how it comes. He said that the government should make sure that people Taliban demanding to set free are not involved in serious crimes. He said that Taliban should also free civil and military personals they have kidnapped.
MASOOD SHARIF KHATTAK OF PTI said that 12th of October coup took place prior to PPPP government they should have taken the action. He said that he does not believe that Pakistan will get involved in Syria war for 1.5 billion dollars.
He said that if fighting against Taliban is the solution then Musharaf should have fought against them when he was in the power. He said that an effort to create misunderstandings between the government and the military is a bad thing. He said that the government and the military stay in touch with each other and they are on one page.
He said that Pakistan is one of the strongest countries in the world and we ourselves are trying to weaken it. He said that the military has learned the lesson from the past and wants to give full opportunity to civil set up.
IRFAN ULLAH MARWAT OF PML-N said that Khursheed Shah has created the misunderstandings about 1.5 billion dollars aid and now he is the one has to clear them. He said that in the past also Pakistan got money from America, China and Saudi Arabia.
He said that if Taliban are making demands the government also has demands to make.
He said that what kind of patriotisms is this that Altaf Hussain lives in Britain and has their passport as well. He said that everybody knows that which party destroyed the peace of Karachi. He said that when MQM was in the government of Musharaf he received money from other countries but they had no objection on it.
He said that the dialogues will be held with only those Taliban who recognize Pakistan as state and others will be fought to defeat. He said that the government is swiftly trying to resolve the Taliban problem but no time frame can be set.
MUSTAFA AZIZABADI OF MQM said that it is obvious that Saudi Arabia gave 1.5 billion dollars to Pakistan to interfere in Syrian war. He said that we made decisions for dollars against Pakistan interest in past as well.
