CHITRAL: Scores of activists belonging to All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf here on Tuesday expressed anguish over the special court’s sentencing of their leader to death in the high treason case in Islamabad.
Speaking at a press conference, Shahzada Amirul Hasnat, Mohsin Hayat, Abdul Qayuum, Ahmed Khan, Mir Rahim, Waqas Ahmed and others said the court decision had sent shock waves across Chitral.
Three of the activists offered themselves for hanging in place of Musharraf. They said they along with their sons were ready to sacrifice their lives for Musharraf.
The activists said Musharraf was the benefactor of the people of Chitral and the court decision had come as a shock for them.
They said the verdict was pronounced without following due process of law and the case had been initiated with a political agenda.
They added that how a person who remained the army chief and president of the country could be declared a traitor and punished with the death sentence.–Bashir Hussain Azad

Some how unfortunately suicide is vary common in Chitral.so our request to all these emotional individuals is must jump in to the river of Chitral in the name of Dictator Musharraf so it’s a kind of Sawab and Shaheed too. Don’t worry about your death bodies Edhi workers are vary active in Chitral.but make sure have a strong decision.just don’t bark.
Only theoretically. Practically these gentlemen would not be willing to go to jail for even one month for Musharraf.
This concept of suicide is derived from past Indian culture named Atma Hathya for a single one and Javhar for mass suicide. We are simple Muslims and our faith is trying hard to the last.
As for struggle is concerned If the same people supporting him are asked to fast for 3 days for Musharraf, they will curse on him right on first day afternoon. Musharraf’s active participation in party was when denied, few left all his voters with their leaders turned side towards PLMN in their best interest. This is the reality on ground.
What these people want to say by offering to be hanged in place of Musharraf. They don’t worth it. Is there any law under which a person could come up and say ‘hey save my father;s life and hang me.” Before making such rubbish claim, they should have consulted a good lawyer.
But I don’t think they meant what they said. They just want to get publicity and come into the good book of someone.
Some weeks back, Sirajul Mulk openly declared of initiating legal proceedings against the special court, through a “best legal brain” in a bid to CREATE history by saving Gen Musharraf. But he along with his ‘best legal brain’ has mysteriously gone missing after the general was awarded death sentence. He claimed of undertaking an emergent trip to UAE all the way from Chitral to have a glimpse of the hot headed commando and now a convicted former president. To ensure that he actually made a trip to Dubai, he stressed that the pet dog of the Mush barked at them when he entered his tiny flat. The way Sirajul Mulk made a failed attempt to create a SCENE out of his love for Musharraf (as he cast his vote for Iftikhar and Suboor in 2018 elections) made me think for a few seconds that he along with some of Mush’s die-hard supporters would volunteer to HANG them instead of the convicted general. But it is quite disappointing to see he is seen nowhere when the general is in dire need.
Kya yeh khula tazada nehi he Shazda sahab??? I think it is an open contradiction.
