Nawaz says Parliament is the first casualty of the Musharraf regimeDecember 18th, 2007 - 3:08 pm ICT by admin
Multan, Dec 18 (ANI): Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that the Parliament is the first, the judiciary second and the remaining institutions the third casualty of the Musharraf regime.
Addressing a public gathering at Qila Qasim Kuhna Bagh, Sharif said such acts of a dictator would finally push the country to a split like the one in 1971.
He said he had returned from Saudi Arabia to save Pakistan.
Sharif said vote to the Pakistan Muslim League-Q would strengthen Pervez Musharraf, who was an unconstitutional President.
He said Musharraf was responsible for the May 12 carnage in Karachi, murder of several innocent minor girls in Lal Masjid and unrelenting killing of innocent Pakistanis in Wana, Waziristan and Balochistan.
Sharif said he was not against the army, but against the generals who caused the fall of Dhaka in 1971, and added that he made Pakistan a nuclear power despite immense pressure from abroad.
He held the erstwhile former government responsible for flour shortage, inflation, lawlessness and unemployment. He said deposed judges would be reinstated if the PML-N came into power.
Sharif termed Musharraf his worst enemy, and asked people to “beware of the so-called Q-League,” the Dawn reported.
Citing deteriorating law and order in Swat, Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and Islamabad, Sharif said Musharraf was responsible for all this. (ANI)
