Benazir paid with her life for defying USJune 6th, 2008 - 3:17 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore , June 6 (ANI): Former Pakistan premier Benazir Bhutto was killed because she didnt stick to the deal which she struck with the US ensuring her return to Pakistan from her decade-long exile in London , the countrys former COAS Mirza Aslam Beg has said.
He said she was killed because of her anti-American policy.
Addressing the general house meeting of the Lahore Bar Association (LBA), Baig said Benazir had initially worked out a deal with US administration to return to Pakistan , but after judging the intensity of anti-Musharraf sentiment back home, she could not toe the US line.
Now the US is dealing with Asif Ali Zardari to achieve its interests, the Dawn quoted him as saying.
He said the lawyers should have their own political agenda for materialising their plans, suggesting them to form a coordination committee to communicate with political parties. The imposition of emergency on November 3 created problems, which were still dragging their feet, he said and added that though Musharraf was breathing the last of his political life, some quarters were still busy hatching conspiracies.
He said the mandate of the Feb 18 elections proved to be against the US interests in the region. (ANI)
