A coward remains a coward, PML-N leader taunts Musharraf


While taunting Musharraf, former information minister Senator Pervaiz Rashid said, ‘A coward remains a coward whether he is in uniform or not’.

Pervaiz Rashid stated this in a tweet. He said a week ago Musharraf, a commando, was watching a match but when the Supreme Court of Pakistan summoned him, he suddenly got ‘sick’. Pervaiz said that his doctor has said that Musharraf was suffering from an unspecified ailment which was actually ‘cowardice’. He said, ‘The uniform does not make a man brave’. ‘Nobody is like Nawaz Sharif’, he added.

Earlier, All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) leader Dr Muhammad Amjad had said that Pervez Musharraf was “growing weaker rapidly” due to an unspecified illness and so could not return to Pakistan to face the treason case against him just yet.

Dr Amjad linked the former president’s absence with a new ailment, which he said requires him to go to London for treatment every quarter.

“Pervez Musharraf had a fracture in his spine, for which he got treated in the USA,” Dr Amjad told the media in a presser following a meeting of the APML central executive committee (CEC). “But nowadays he is being treated for a separate ailment. For this, he has to go to London after every three months.

“We cannot tell the nation about the ailment right now but we will tell the court about it and also present the ailment’s documentation to the chief justice. Musharraf is growing weaker rapidly so we cannot put his life at risk.”
