I am not accustomed to beg pardon: Musharraf

ISLAMABAD: Former president Pervez Musharraf has said he does not know what he will do if he is convicted in the case but he is not accustomed to beg pardon. “ I don’t believe in politics of victimization. If I am acquitted I will not file defamation suit. If I am convicted then what will I do, I don’t know it. But I am not accustomed to beg pardon”, he said this while talking in a private TV channel program.

All the cases instituted against him are politically motivated, he held. Norms of justice have been torn into shreds in what has happened so far, he underlined. “However I hope that ends of justice will be met in coming time. I have filed petitions and I will take them to the Supreme Court”, he declared.

It was accepted by him when SC reinstated Iftikhar Chaudhry, he said adding this matter should have come to end there but it was moved forward. When Iftikhar Chaudhry was elevated to the office chief justice he had been elevated under law as law is in force that senior most judge will become chief justice, he underlined

Iftikhar Chaudhry did not do justice, he remarked. If it was matter of justice then article 2 and 3 should also have been applied , he added.

“ I was not allowed to contest election and I was declared disqualified. Akbar Bugti and Lal Masjid cases were in line with the requirement of the then government, he claimed. “ All those who are sitting in parliament are “Sadiq” and “ Ameen” but not I”, he observed.

Running the affairs of government is responsibility of prime minister rather than president, he said. Asghar Khan expressed well wishes for him but it is beyond his comprehension that Asghar Khan talked against him, he added.

“I have done a lot for peace in the country and for the uplift of the poor masses. Therefore, I have decided to return to people. My vision was dedicated to Pakistan and people of Pakistan. These were political facts that country was heading towards disaster. Everything was in the country but what it was lacking, it was political leadership. Therefore, I set up party. People were calling for a change. Now they are demanding a new politics and a new Pakistan. Tahir ul Qadri and Imran Khan have given proof in this respect”, he observed.

“ Corrupt elements focus on their persons only and not the country. Whosoever has done evil with me can deceive people and government when time comes. I have come back to country due to day to day deteriorating situation therein and no one has brought me here”, he held.
