Pakistan in danger,says MusharrafApril 19th, 2009 - 6:58 pm ICT by IANS
Islamabad, April 19 (IANS) Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf Sunday said “the country is in great danger”, and added that the people should not get bogged down by minor issues and focus on bigger challenges.
“Pervez Musharraf said that the country was in great danger and advised all to shun looking into the past,” the News International reported Sunday.
Before leaving for Saudi Arabia, Musharraf urged upon the nation to focus on the current myriad challenges being faced by the country.
The people, instead of bogging down in minor issues, should think about the future of Pakistan, Pakistan News quoted him as saying.
Talking to mediapersons at Islamabad airport, Musharraf said the people playing with the Lal Masjid issue were enemies of the country.
“Only 94 persons were killed in Lal Masjid, which were terrorists.”
“If any action is initiated against me, I will respond to it,” he said.
Military commandos stormed the Lal Masjid in July 2007 to end a standoff with armed pupils of Maulana Abdul Aziz.
