Vic­tim­i­sa­tion of PPP old tra­di­tion of PML-N: Chan­dio

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL - STAFF RE­PORTER

KARACHI—The slain Pak­istan Peo­ple’s party (PPP) chair­per­son) Be­nazir Bhutto had suf­fered much in the pre­vi­ous govern­ment of Nawaz Sharif be­cause the then Sharif govern­ment had booked her in fake cases and was com­pelled to ap­pear in dif­fer­ent courts in dif­fer­ent cities with an aim to pu­n­ish her for the crime she never com­mit­ted.

It was the worst form of po­lit­i­cal vic­tim­iza­tion. It is the irony that when he (Nawaz Sharif) has his govern­ment in Pak­istan, he starts vic­tim­iza­tion of PPP lead­ers. The supremacy of law sud­denly dis­ap­pears and law of the jun­gle pre­vails dur­ing his govern­ment.

Sindh Chief Min­is­ter’s ad­vi­sor on in­for­ma­tion and ar­chives Moula Bux Chan­dio ex­pressed these views while re­spond­ing to in­cit­ing lan­guage by the Fed­eral Min­is­ter for in­for­ma­tion Se­na­tor Pervez Rasheed against the Pak­istan Peo­ple’s party (PPP) Chair­man Bi­lawal Bhutto Zar­dari.

Chan­dio said that the lan­guage that the min­is­ter s in the Sharif’s cabi­net es­pe­cially the fed­eral min­is­ter for in­for­ma­tion Se­na­tor Pervez Rasheed has used against the PPP Chair­man Bi­lawal Bhutto Zar­dari is highly ab­surd. The con­ver­sa­tion between the judges and Nawaz Sharif is in­tact and is on record in which he had di­rected the judges to keep drag­ging the fake cases against the PPP lead­ers Be­nazir Bhutto and for­mer Pres­i­dent Asif Ali Zar­dari. That record of con­ver­sa­tion could not be re­moved and the masses could not be con­strained to for­get it.

He said that Nawaz Sharif con­sid­ers his po­lit­i­cal op­po­nents as per­sonal en­mity and Zar­dari’s im­pris­on­ment for over a decade is an un­de­ni­able proof of this typ­i­cal mind­set of Sharif. Both the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ments of Nawaz Sharif were full of po­lit­i­cal vic­tim­iza­tion of Be­nazir Bhutto as she was com­pelled to live in ex­ile while Zar­dari was jailed.

How­ever, Be­nazir Bhutto was a brave lady and vi­sion­ary leader as she could not be in­tim­i­dated through fake cases against her and driv­ing her from one city to an­other for ap­pear­ing in courts for the guilt she never did, he said, adding that even Sharif did not let Zar­dari to take oath as dur­ing his govern­ment. Presently, it seems as if the Se­na­tor Pervez Rasheed has ac­quired a se­vere at­tack of Bhutto pho­bia and hence he is be­ing im­pas­sion­ate in mak­ing foul state­ments in great haste.
