Lahore - The authorities dealing with the Pervez Musharraf treason case must handle the matter with caution and avoid taking any step which could get out of control afterwards, warned PML-Q Chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.

Talking to media people on Sunday, he said, “This is a sensitive issue which could have wider repercussions and prove detrimental to the interests of the nation and democracy. This is certainly not the time for taking hasty steps as the election campaign is in full swing. I have always spoken up against the politics of revenge. Any attempt to humiliate an individual or an institution would prove counterproductive and dangerous,” he said.

Shujaat said, “This is not simply a matter pertaining to the person of Pervez Musharraf as it can open a Pandora box. We should all rise above our personal and partisan interests and focus on the problems of the masses, otherwise there will be no winners and everybody will be the loser”.

The PML-Q chief said, “Pakistan is passing through difficult times and there is a need to have a forward-looking approach to solve the fundamental problems facing the country, rather than being hostage to the past”.
