Musharraf not asked to tender apology, claims minister
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Railways Khwaja Saad Rafique said nobody asked Pervez Musharraf to tender apology nor the government could do this, ARY News reported Thursday.
Talking to media at a gathering in Lahore, Rafique maintained that no foreign country would intervene in sending Musharraf abroad.
“Justice must prevail in Musharraf case. The government has excused from allowing Musharraf to go abroad,” said the minister.
He said the case of Musharraf was sub-judice and the court will decide it accordingly. “Judiciary is now independent and it summons the prime minister”.
He stated that the biggest problem of the country was terrorism, while Taliban’s positive gesture towards dialogues was encouraging. He highlighted that insurgents in Balochistan will be approached in next phase for talks.
The minister said Pakistani nation must thank the Saudia Arabai for giving us the ‘gift’ of $1.5 billion.
