Nawaz Sharif’s intention to pursue treason charges---Reckless and ill-conceived

musharraf nawaz_sharifJune 24th, 2013: Dr. Raza Bokhari, International Spokesman and North American Point of Contact to General Pervez Musharraf, Former President of Pakistan,  in speaking to various media outlets issued the following statement:


The Nawaz Sharif government is demonstrating recklessness in its intention to pursue unwarranted treason charges against Former President Musharraf. It is relevant to remember that the Federation of Pakistan was not an aggrieved party in the declaration of State of Emergency in Pakistan on November 3rd, 2007. The Emergency was proclaimed on the request of the Government of Pakistan, both at the Federal and Provincial level. The text of the November 3rd Emergency Proclamation reflects that the Prime Minister, Governors of all four provinces, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, Chiefs of the Armed Forces, Vice-Chief of Army Staff and Corps Commanders of the Pakistan Army had deliberated on the challenges facing the country at that time and recommended proclamation of  Emergency throughout Pakistan.
The Former President has served Pakistan with selfless devotion and perseverance. The people of Pakistan will not tolerate this circus, which is primarily meant to create a diversion. It is taking focus away from addressing serious challenges faced by the nation and can result in unnecessary tension amongst the various pillars of State and possibly destabilize the country.
