Islamabad, Oct 23: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has stressed on the need to punish those responsible for toppling elected governments and introducing suicide bombings to the country.
He emphasised this point also in his address to the Pakistani community, asking them to single out those who introduced “the culture of suicide bombings, removed judges and toppled elected governments”.
He then named former military ruler Pervez Musharraf as the man responsible for some of these “crimes”.
According to Dawn News, Sharif said that Musharraf not only toppled his government but also sacked judges.
He said that when he met US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday, he did not ask for money, which “surprised the Americans”.
In both the speeches, Sharif recalled that he brought former Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee to Lahore and even got a pledge from him for resolving the Kashmir dispute.
And in return, Gen Musharraf toppled his government.(ANI)
