Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Syed Munawar Hasan has welcomed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s announcement for holding trial of Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf on the charge of treason under article six of the constitution and said the decision was line with the sentiments of the people. Giving his comments on the government decision, the JI Ameer said that the military dictator abrogated the constitution twice and unlawfully confined the superior courts judges to their houses. Pervez Musharraf was also the murderer of innocent girls at the Masjid e Hafsa, and Nawab Akbar Bugti.

Munawar said that not only the step taken on the 3rd of November but all the decisions of Pervez Musharraf in support of the US agenda were above the law and in conflict with the constitution.–Staff Reporter
