Bilawal accuses me of murder due to fear of father: Mush
LAHORE – Former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday claimed that PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto is wrongly accusing him of the murder of his mother Benazir Bhutto owing to the fear of his father.
Talking to a private TV channel, Musharraf refuted the allegations that link him to the assassination of Benazir, claiming that Bilawal, Zardari and Nawaz Sharif want to pressurise him as well as the armed forces.
Musharraf hit back at PPP for chanting slogans against him at the 10th death anniversary rally of Benazir. “Don’t raise allegations on me like a child, bring proof,” he said.
On a question, he reaffirmed his stance that the security arrangements for Benazir were not his responsibility, adding that the then government had provided the best security to her. He supposed that Benazir would have been safe if she had stayed in the car.
Musharraf hinted that PPP Co-Chairman Zardari and Bilawal were benefited after Benazir’s murder and not him. He claimed that Zardari presented fake will to exploit the wealth and political party of Benazir.
