Lahore, Aug. 2 (ANI): Former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Kasuri has advised the present government to take the route of justice and not vengeance in the case of former president Pervez Musharraf.

The Daily Times quoted Kasuri, as saying that those who referred to Article 6(2) clearly stated that those who helped in the execution or conspiracy of the acts of abrogating or attempting to abrogate or subvert the constitution would be treated alike.

Kasuri said there would be a long list of politicians, judges, bureaucrats and military officers who could be treated as Musharraf's aides.

Kasuri also disclosed that had even offered his resignation in November 2007, but later withdrew it to avoid the impression that he was stabbing the former president in the back.

He said he had advised Musharraf to welcome the reinstatement of judges through the Supreme Judicial Council, but latter had got the impression that some judges were biased against him.

Kasuri said he had also openly opposed Musharraf ruling in uniform in a high-level meeting with then Chief of Staff General Hamid Nawaz and then Inter-Services Intelligence chief General Ashfaq Kayani.

He also noted that the Musharraf government brought a lot of miraculous developments including rapid economic growth. (ANI)
