Parliament is the weakest institution: Rabbani
PPP leader Khursheed Shah on Saturday lashed out at former president Pervez Musharraf and asked him to return to the country and face the cases against him rather than passing statements from a foreign country.
Shah, addressing a ceremony in Sukkur, criticized Musharraf who caused a stir recently by alleging that Asif Ali Zardari is involved in Benazir and Murtaza Bhutto’s murder.
“Return to the country like Benazir did, do politics like Zulfikar Ali Bhutto did and spend time in prison like Asif Ali Zardari did,” said the opposition leader.
“We didn’t go abroad, we aren’t scared,” said Shah taunting the former president’s self-imposed exile. Shah also questioned the timing of Musharraf’s statements and asked why the former president remained quiet for 10 years.
Shah also said that attempts are being made to cause a rift between the parliament and the institutions. “Those trying to weaken the parliament are not sincere to Pakistan,” said Khursheed Shah and added that the country will progress when people will get their rights.
Meanwhile, Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani, talking to media, called former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf a murderer. Rabbani said if Musharraf is brave he should return to Pakistan and face cases against him. The Senate chairman stressed that Musharraf was sitting in London and Dubai and enjoying life.
When asked about the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017, Rabbani refused to comment stating this was a political matter.
However, Rabbani did state that parliament was the weakest institution when it should be the strongest.
