KARACHI: Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) chief Mustafa Kamal on Monday termed the special court’s verdict in the high treason case against former military ruler Pervez Musharraf as incorrect.
Speaking to the media, he said Article 6 – under which Gen (retd) Musharraf was tried and sentenced – should be implemented in letter and spirit. “500 people who sided with Musharraf while he clamped the state of emergency in 2007 should also be held to account,” he said.
Without naming the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), which held a protest rally on Sunday against the verdict, Kamal said a Karachi-based party is doing politics over the verdict by giving it ethnic color.
Speaking at the rally in Karachi yesterday, Minister for Information Technology Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui had criticised the verdict saying that “inappropriate language” was used in the ruling which could not be justified.
Kamal, while criticising the rally, urged all political parties to stop using every issue for their personal gains.
