LAHORE: The Quaid Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has said the entire nation is crying out for former president Musharraf’s prosecution under Article 6 of constitution.
According to the statement released here from PML-N, Nawaz Sharif declined impression of any personal enmity in asking for Musharraf’s trial as he termed the demand as utterly necessary for revival of law and constitution in Pakistan.
He said there is room to avoid taking legal action against Musharraf following the Supreme Court ruling declaring November 3, 2007 actions taken solely by him as unconstitutional and akin to playing havoc to constitution of Pakistan.
“Even former Premier Benazir Bhutto pledged to do so through her signature on Charter of Democracy (CoD)”, he claimed warning, “PML-N could choose other way instead of participation in the committee precisely constituted to bring constitutional reforms if necessary action not taken to abrogate 17th amendment.”
The PPP-led government has turned simple matters complicated even when PML-N extended all-out support to it, he added.
“Neither will we embrace any anti-democratic process nor will we contribute to it”, Nawaz straightforward concluded.
