Zardari tells Nawaz agreements not holy like Quran or Hadith, can be changedAugust 24th, 2008 - 1:56 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore Aug 24 (ANI): Responding to PML-N leader and former premier Nawaz Sharifs repeated insistence that the PPP should fulfill its promise of restoring sacked judges, PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said that agreements with PML-N are not holy like the holy Quran and the Hadith and can be modified if circumstances change.
He said this in an interview with BBC Urdu on Saturday, reported the Daily Times.
Earlier, on Saturday, Sharif had said in a press conference that Zardari had agreed that the sacked judges would be reinstated within 24 hours of former president Pervez Musharrafs impeachment or resignation. What happened to your promise? Nawaz said during the press conference.
Political parties do not make promises, they only arrive at understandings, Zardari said and added that political understandings are sometimes 50 percent successful, and sometimes more than that, but are still considered successful
To a question if the judges would be restored, Zardari said in the interview: Inshallah Asked when they would be restored, Zardari said he did not believe in countdowns or count-ups and could not give a timeframe.
Regarding Musharrafs resignation, he said that the PPP did not believe in political vendetta, adding that Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had not impeached Yahya Khan. Bhutto did not impeach Yahya Khan because in that case General Niazi would also have been impeached, and Sheikh Mujeeb had been asking India to hand Niazi over to Bangladesh, the BBC quoted Zardari as saying.
