Former Pak general regrets backing Musharraf coup
Islamabad: Former Lt General Shahid Aziz, one of the protagonists of October 12, 1999 coup d`état and former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf`s right-hand back in the day, is ready to face conditional action under Article 6 of the Constitution.
Aziz said he regretted supporting the dictator, but in the same breath justified his own actions as an attempt to bring about a change in the broader interest of the country, reports The News.
Aziz said he violated the Constitution because he believed it was a rotten product of a system that reeked of corruption.
He added that all those who in one way or the other ravaged the country must face the charges of breaching the Constitution including Musharraf and his followers.
