CHITRAL, Feb 21: Most of the people of Chitral continue admiring former president Pervez Musharraf not only for launching mega projects such as the Lowari Tunnel but also for cherishing their values and patriotism.
In admiring and supporting the former president at a time when most of the country is after him, women of Chitral are also not behind and Shahida Sahar is one of them. A human rights activist and social worker of Chitral, Shahida Sahar says that the people of Chitral never forget their benefactors. She says that the Lowari tunnel project was initiated by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and completed by Musharraf, so both are taken in high esteem by the people of Chitral. Had Musharraf not been banned from taking part in elections, he would have scored 100 per cent votes on May 11, 2013, she says.
Musharraf is our benefactor and people of Chitral are ready to render any type of sacrifice for him. I myself am ready to sacrifice my life for Musharraf.
Shahida Sahar also prayed for the acquittal of Musharraf in all the cases so that he may become the president of Pakistan once again. She said it was the misfortune of the people of Chitral that Musharraf could not take part in the elections otherwise the condition of Chitral would have been changed. Reporter: GH Farooqui
