De­mands law­maker be charged of trea­son

PESA con­demns sedi­tious re­marks of Achakzai

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

RAWALPINDI—The Pak­istan Ex-ser­vice­men As­so­ci­a­tion (PESA) on Satur­day se­verely con­demned the re­bel­lious state­ment made by Mr Mah­mud Khan Achakzai, an ally of the gov­ern­ment, about Khy­ber Pakhtunkhwa be­ing part of Afghanistan. Mr Achakzai has no doubt grossly vi­o­lated his oath as mem­ber of the Na­tional Assem­bly and has made him­self li­able for trial on charges of trea­son, it said. Supreme Court, Par­lia­ment, Elec­tion Com­mis­sion and other in­sti­tu­tions must take note of this anti Pa- kistan com­ment by Mr Achakzai.

Ab­sence of any re­ac­tion from our gov­ern­ment and For­eign Of­fice in par­tic­u­lar, is highly in­trigu­ing. They must openly con­demn this state­ment. Ig­nor­ing ev­ery wrong deed of their po­lit­i­cal sup­port­ers is im­moral. The law­maker ap­pears to have taken ad­van­tage of the dis­turbed con­di­tions in the coun­try to in­di­rectly res­ur­rect the dead is­sue of Pakhtunistan that was killed by Pakhtuns through ref­er­en­dum with 99.02 % vot­ing for Pak­istan and only 0.98 % vot­ing against.—Agen­cies
