Posts Tagged ‘Pervez Musharraf’

Gen. Pervez Musharraf, everyone’s favorite former Pakistani junta leader and a perennially-future presidential candidate, is speaking on stage at the Aspen Ideas Festival now to David Bradley, the chairman and owner of the Atlantic Media Company, and said, in response to series of questions from David about Pakistan’s support for anti-American, pro-Taliban terror groups, that, “India is trying to create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan.” Excellent answer, no? Entirely typical, actually. The last time I was in Pakistan, various analysts and government officials told me that Pakistan was outgrowing its fixation on India, but it’s just not true. It’s also not true that the army is maturing in its understanding of the role of civilian leadership; Musharraf, who does not speak for the army anymore (he’s not very liked by the generals he brought to power), nevertheless captured the army’s belief in its own righteousness when he told David, “The state is being run into the ground and the people are once again running to the army to save the state.”

Pakistan’s democracy has never been given time to develop — the military has made sure of that, time and time again.

Karachi: Renowned journalist and Pakistan’s news group, The News, editor Shaheen Sehbai has claimed in a video that soon a scandal is likely to surface against the Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhery’s son, Dr Arsalan Iftikhar.

On a famous video site Sehbai unveiled this shocking revelation while apparently giving an interview to Dr Manzur Ejaz, host of a program ‘Washington Beat’.

Sehbai said that “CJ’s son was given up to Rs.400 million in a planned conspiracy. The conspiracy is now completed and can be brought to surface anytime.”

According to Shaheen Sehbai CJ’s son received millions of rupees plus sponsored foreign trips, during 2009, 2010 and 2011 to London, with credit cards to be used abroad for him and his family from a famous business tycoon of Pakistan, Malik Riaz, (named by Kamran Khan in his programme ‘Aaj Kamran Khan K Sath’).

Sehbai further said “I received this info from a very credible source. The person, who gave money to CJ’s son, had accepted it. They have documented everything. CJ’s son has also accepted receiving money in his private gatherings. He is ready to go to jail if it requires.”

However, Sehbai said that the detail of the business for which this huge money was lended to CJ’s son is still unknown.”

“Few years back Pervez Musharaf (Former president of Pakistan) put charges on CJP Iftikhar that he misused his authority to provide his son a job. So how can a job seeker become such a brilliant businessman in just few years that people gave him millions? Therefore, it was a planned conspiracy,” Sehbai added.

He also said that CJ Iftikhar Muhammad is very angry on this matter. “CJ said to his close friends that he will sidelined his family,” Shaheen continued,

Furthermore in news report on Tuesday, Kamran Khan has revealed that the documented evidence was forwarded to CJP and soon he would take serious action against the matter.

Sehbai also said that famous journalists including Najam Sethi, Kamran Khan and Hamid Mir were aware of the whole matter. He also said that Aitzaz Ahsan, Qamar-uz-Zaman Kaira and other Pakistan Peoples Party’s top leadership were also aware of this conspiracy but just could not ‘find courage to bring it up.’

It is pertinent to mention that The News Editor Investigation Ansar Abbasi on Monday wrote an article in Jang unveiling some parts of the scandal and said that the scandal was a conspiracy against independent judiciary.

While on Tuesday, programs were relayed on TV regarding the scandal especially on ‘Aaj Kamran Khan K Sath’ and News Night with Talat Hussain.

Interestingly, according to Shaheen Sehbai Pakistan tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI)’s chief Imran Khan was among those few who knew about it.

Not to forget that following the Prime Minster’s contempt of court verdict Imran Khan gave messages to Supreme Court and CJ in his speeches that nation will stand by him (CJ).

NOTE: One huge coincidence in this case is that, the interview published is on the 4th of June – the same date when Mr. Rehman Malik is disqualified by Mr. Iftikhar chaudhary. Could it be a counter attack or what? Lets see what future has stored for us.

Musharraf has been “intentionally” avoiding court notices issued against him: Challan.

RAWALPINDI: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has submitted a final challan on Tuesday in the Benazir Bhutto murder case and nominated former president Pervez Musharraf as the main offender.

According to the FIA prosecutor, the challan states that Musharraf has been “intentionally” avoiding court notices issued to him and that the hearings should proceed in his absence.

An anti-terrorism court has also accepted the challan for hearing.

Former DG IB Brigadier Ijaz Shah, retired Brigadier Javed Cheema and two American journalists will appear before the court as witnesses against Musharraf.

In the challan, Musharraf is also accused of compromising on Benazir’s security, which made her an easy target for militants.

According to Express News correspondent Qaiser Shirazi, the court can award a jail term between five to ten years to Musharraf for his consistent failure to present himself before the court.
