Musharraf should return if he’s brave, Zardari hits back | Pakistan

KAMALIA: Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari responding to former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s allegations against him said if Musharraf is so brave he should return to the country. 

“He [Musharraf] should appear in front of the court,” Zardari remarked while speaking to the media in Kamalia, a city in district Toba Tek Singh. 

Continuing his criticism of the former president, Zardari asked why were clips of Musharraf in discos being circulated if he has gone to seek treatment for his backache. 

The politics of the past was based on levelling allegations against political opponents, Zardari added. 

“When we approached the court after that Musharraf remembered his earlier allegations.”

On Thursday,  Musharraf had Asif Ali Zardari for the murder of his wife and former premier Benazir Bhutto.

In a video message, Musharraf, the former army chief, said he was sending out this message as Zardari had personally called him out by blaming him for Benazir’s murder.

Giving his ‘reply’, Musharraf said he is especially addressing [Benazir and Zardari’s children] Bilawal, Aseefa and Bakhtawar, as well as the Bhutto family and all Sindhis and Pakistanis who have been following “this murderer of Benazir”. 

Zardari criticises Nawaz, Imran

Zardari even criticised his political opponents; former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan. 

He remarked: “Nawaz does not know the art of governance. Nothing happens from building roads.”

Speaking about Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who is being probed by National Accountability Bureau, he said that Dar has fled and left the country injured.  

Over the development in PTI-governed Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Zardari said that “we can’t see any progress in the province.”
