Musharraf can’t be called traitor: Shaukat Yousafzai

PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Shaukat Yousafzai on Thursday said that it is not right to call former president Pervez Musharraf a traitor.

Yousafzai, in his statement, said, the judgment against Musharraf has dejected many people, adding that the Pakistan army has rendered uncountable sacrifices in war against terror.

He said the leaders who are facing corruption charges, are going abroad and the one who fought wars for the defense of the homeland, is labeled a traitor.

Observing that the decision will create instability among the state institutions, Yousafzai said the solution to every problem lies in the constitution.

Earlier on December 17, the special court had awarded death sentence to former president Pervez Musharraf in the high treason case against him.

Expressing grave concerns over the verdict against him in a high treason case on Wednesday, former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf had said that he was denied the fundamental right of self-defense in the case

The former military chief is currently in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
