ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q) chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain has said that word high treason is being used wrongly in the Musharraf case. Talking to media outside Parliament House on Monday, he said that violator of Constitution could be used instead of traitor as an army chief could never be a traitor.

He said the word ‘traitor’ is used for those who join the enemies of the country. Shujaat Hussain suggested that the word ‘traitor’ should be deleted from the Constitution. “If the government wants proceeding of the case against Pervez Musharraf then it should be started since 12th October 1999 instead of 3rd November 2007”, the PML-Q chief said.

Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain said he had already presented his name and former chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, former army chief Ashfaq Pervez Kayani and Pervez Elahi could also be summoned in Musharraf case.

The PML-Q chief said price hike in Pakistan was a biggest problem and he felt that the country was moving towards a class struggle.
