Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto said on Tuesday that the verdict to give death sentence to former military ruler Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf is a historic decision.

Speaking to media, the PPP chairman said that this is the first time such a decision has been announced.

“This is the first step of Pakistan’s journey towards democracy,” said the PPP leader.

He further said that the decision also sends a message that no military dictator can take an unconstitutional step in the future.

Meanwhile, the PPP chairman is set to address workers’ convention on December 18, at Qasim Garden, Raiwind.

Earlier today, a special court handed the death punishment to the former military dictator for abrogating the constitution and imposing a state of emergency on November 3, 2007.
