JI criticizes Pervez Musharraf’s escapeApril 18, 2013
Lahore: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed Munawar Hasan, has called upon the care taker government to ensure strict compliance of the court orders against former dictator Pervez Musharraf who was guilty of abrogation of the constitution twice, grabbing power unlawfully and turning the country into a US orchard.
Commenting on the escape of the former dictator from the court room after the cancellation of his bail despite the presence of heavy police contingent, he said this showed sheer inefficiency of the law enforcement agencies. Permitting Pervez Musharraf to flee from the court room was tantamount to mockery of the court orders and contempt of the court, he added.
Syed Munawar Hasan said that Pervez Musharraf’s escape and allowing the criminals to contest elections were a part of the same chain.
He has urged the judiciary to foil all attempts to obstruct the process of law and impose the rule of the dacoits and plunderers once again.
The JI Ameer said that the care taker government was duty bound to adopt every possible means for the arrest of the national criminal in line with the aspirations of the people, adding that the entire nation wanted to see the former dictator behind the bars.
He further said that the retired general had been claiming to be a brave and fearless person but had he any regard for the rule of law; he would have courted arrest instead of fleeing.
