Musharraf granted bail in the Red Mosque matter
November 4th, 2013: Dr. Raza Bokhari, International spokesperson and North American Point of Contact for Former President Musharraf, issued the following statement to various media outlets:
We confirm that, earlier today, Former President Musharraf was granted post-arrest bail in the mocked-up charges filed against him by surviving extremists that are associated with Islamabad's Red Mosque.
It is shameful that today in Pakistan, terrorists are posing as martyrs and the Taliban sympathetic Nawaz government is criminalizing the acts of Musharraf Government, which had firmly enforced the Writ of State; in doing so 13 brave soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice and laid down their lives.
We are confident that eventually domestic and international push-back will compel Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to cease in his tracks and the allegations filed against Former President Musharraf in the Red Mosque matter will be withdrawn without prejudice.
