Internet Gives Its Own Verdict On Musharraf’s Death Sentence!

Musharraf Death Sentence

Yesterday on the 17th of December, former president of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf was sentenced to death. The verdict was served by the Special Court comprised of the three-member bench that included; Chief Justice Peshawar High Court (PHC) Waqar Seth, Justice Nazar Akbar of Sindh High Court (SHC) and Lahore High Court’s Justice Shahid Karim.

The news jolted the country including the Pakistan Army that released their statement yesterday, in support of Pervez Musharraf.

“Received with a lot of pain and anguish” and “can surely never be a traitor”

Pakistan Army rejected the verdict against Musharraf and considered the court to have carried out the judgment in haste. In addition, the Pakistan army also maintained that his fundamental right to self-defense was also ignored. Clearly, the army’s sentiments are clear on Musharraf’s sentence to death. Moreover, encompassing the armed forces of Pakistan, the statement concluded that they all hope for justice to be delivered in line with the Constitution of Pakistan.

This has been the first time in Pakistan’s history that a death sentence has been announced for an Army Chief of Pakistan. Further, Musharraf’s treason case was first filed in 2013 by Pakistan Muslim League (N). Now, after the verdict has been announced, a major divide has been observed not just within the citizens of Pakistan but among the institutions of the country as well.
