Tallal’s threat to Musharraf: APML wants SC to take noticeNovember 1, 2010
OKARA, Oct 31: The All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) has demanded the apex court should take a suo motu notice of the murder threats being openly hurled at former president and army chief Gen Pervaiz Musharraf (retired).
The demand was made by APML leader Advocate Chaudhry Fawwad Hussain at a press conference held at the local press club on Sunday. Mr Hussain was in Okara to attend the Chehlum of former defence minister Rao Sikandar Iqbal.
Mr Hussain said if the judges of Supreme Court could meet in the middle of the night, reportedly reacting to some media reports, they should also take notice of the life threats being issued by late Akbar Bugti’s son Tallal Bugti against Musharraf.
He said Mian Azhar, Sheikh Rashid Ahmad and Ijazul Haq had joined the recently formed Muttahida Muslim League in a bid to obtain PML-N ticket in the next general election.
He said the APML would not join any alliance having PML-N as a member, adding that his party would issue a ‘white paper’ having detailed proof of Nawaz Sharif’s Rs78 billion properties in London.
He said the PPP and the PML-N had been staging a ‘fake fight’ but were virtually guarding each others interests. The parties were two sides of the same coin, he added.
Central leader of PML (Likeminded) Humayun Akhtar Khan also talked to journalists. He said Chaudhry brothers first met Pir Sahib Pagara, and on the other hand Chaudhry Parvez Elahi held a meeting with Babar Awan when the latter called on him, which showed their tilt towards the PPP.
To a question he said that he did not see mid-term election in near future, and added that if any change was to come, it must be in constitutional way.
