GUESTS- SHAHID KHAQAN ABBASI, AHMED RAZA QASOORI, SALMAN AKRAM RAJA
SHAHID KHAQAN ABBASI OF PML-N said that it is the generosity of the government that Musharaf is not in jail at this time. He said that Musharaf should be courageous enough to face the cases against him. He said that Musharaf committed many crimes during his government and now should face cases against him like a man.
He said that guard of honor cannot save someone from punishment of his crimes.
He said that he can tell that no plane has come to Pakistan to take Pervez Musharaf.
He said that Musharaf has requested the government to let him go abroad but question is whether he will come back to face the cases or not.
He said that he does not believe that Musharaf has the support of the military.
He said that the government is not thinking to take revenge from Musharaf but he should be tried according to the law.
AHMED RAZA QASOORI LAWYER said that the federal government sent Musharaf abroad with guard of honors now how it can contest a case against him. He said that going out of the country is a basic right of Musharaf.
He said that Akram Sheikh statement that mothers are everybody mothers is a major shift in the attitude of the government. He said that in next forty eight hours the things will be much clearer in front of the people. He said the security has already been appointed outside the Musharaf residence in Dubai. He said that UAE government wants that situation does not go bad in Pakistan and stability is in tact. He said that 1.5 billion dollars aid is not without purpose and many things are associated with it.
SALMAN AKRAM RAJA LAWYER said that if the government will not exclude Musharaf name from ECL he will go to the court. He said that the court has stated that nobody can be barred to go abroad because he is facing a case in the court. He said that if Musharaf name is included according to the law in ECL then it is not his basic right to go abroad. He said that Musharaf has only one reason to go overseas that his mother is ill. He said that the nature of Musharaf illness is not such that cannot be treated in Pakistan and he has to go overseas.
