Quetta: Pakistani political leaders and religious scholars have made a unanimous declaration justifying the call for former military ruler Pervez Musharraf’s murder for his allegedly unpardonable crimes.
The theme of the conference was ‘If Salman Rushdi deserved to be killed, why not Musharraf, who was responsible for killing innocent people and also of desecration of the holy Quran at Jamia Hafsa,’ the Daily Times reported.
The Jamhoori Watan Party (JWP) of Talal Akbar Bugti sponsored the conference in which prominent religious scholars and political leaders participated and signed a joint declaration against Musharraf justifying his killing.
They were of the view that the former president was liable to be killed in revenge for killing Akbar Bugti and other innocent Pakistanis, including Jamia Hafsa students in Islamabad during his rule.
The speakers criticised the APML founder-leader for his unpardonable crimes against humanity and held him solely responsible for killing thousands of Balochs in a military operation, violation of the Constitution, making changes in the Hudood Ordinance, insulting Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan, handing over Dr Aafia Siddiqui and Abdul Salam Asif to the US, violating the sanctity of mosques, and other unpardonable crimes against society and the state.
The Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, Majlis Wahdat Muslimeen Pakistan, Shia Ulema Council Balochistan, Tanzeem-e-Islam Pakistan, JUI-S and religious scholars participated in the conference.
