Musharraf had threatened my mother Benazir Bhutto, says Bilawal
KARACHI (92 News) – Pakistan People’s Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Musharraf had threatened his mother Benazir Bhutto.
Speaking to the BBC, he said that Musharraf also faced the charges of treason and murdering former Balochistan chief minister.
He questioned why former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf does not return to Pakistan and face the charges leveled against him.
The PPP chairman said that the DNA records they presented in Benazir’s murder case were ignored and it took 10 years for the anti-terrorism court to announce the verdict that had to be given within two weeks.
About politics and family legacy in Pakistan, he said that his party did not opt for the path of family politics. “I did not desire to become the country’s prime minister but only want to achieve certain goals for people of the country.”
Bilawal said there are political parties in the country whose performance is influenced by the fact that they are supported by a family legacy, but none of them went through the pains of seeing their relatives murdered like PPP leaders did.
