Lahore, Aug 24 (ANI): The US and UK governments were key players in facilitating the escape of former President Pervez Musharraf, whereas the Pakistan People's Party and the PML-N are consistently deceiving the nation by not acting to apprehend the national offender, Jamaat-e-Islami Ameer Punjab Waseem Akhtar has said.
He said the PPP Government's attitude clearly gave the idea that they wanted to suppress the accountability of Musharraf for his hideous constitutional crimes.
Akhtar said the PML-N, which was basing its political stance on indiscriminate accountability of all, was also staying quiet over the issue and was hesitating in taking a bold stance.
He said both the coalition parties were using false tactics by dumping the responsibility on each other, but the fact of the matter was that both of them did not want to take any serious steps.
Akhtar said the representatives of the government gave contradictory statements on the media and portrayed an image that they wanted to prosecute Musharraf whereas their leaders had not taken any concrete step to bring him to justice.
Jamaat-e-Islami chief Munawwar Hassan also said that the PPP and the PML-N were not serious in trying Musharraf for treason.
A private TV channel quoted Hassan as saying that both parties were using delaying tactics to save Musharraf from a trial. (ANI)
