1. Gen. Pervez Musharraf imposed Martial Law in the country twice, subverted the Constitution and violated the oath taken by him as Army chief. He kept the elected PM behind bars in the Attock Fort, detained
judges of the superior courts with their family members and imposed dictatorship at gunpoint.
2. He planned and undertook the Kargil misadventure, concealing it
from the elected government, sacrificing some 800 officers and men of the Army in the process.
3. He used Pakistan Army as his personal force, tried to corrupt it
and gave promotion to his blue-eyed officers. He used the Army for
different unconstitutional and illegal actions meant to prolong his
rule, badly affecting the credibility of the national institution.
4. He pushed the Army into an undeclared war against its own people
without seeking approval from the Prime Minister, Cabinet and
Parliament, which has so far resulted in the killing of over 1,000
Armymen. Suicide bombings in reaction have also claimed lives of a
large number of Pakistanis.
5. He blackmailed and subjected different people to torture and abuse,
using the National Accountability Bureau [NAB] to form a PML-Q
6. He got Nawab Akbar Bugti killed in cold blood to implement the
threat he had earlier hurled on him and congratulated the people
involved in the killing after the act.
7. Thousands of Baloch political workers were made victims of enforced
disappearance, with their family members still unaware of their
whereabouts. Various Baloch leaders, including Akhtar Mengal, were
implicated in false cases and jailed.
8. The Lal Masjid was attacked on the pressure of external powers, resulting in the death of hundreds of innocent boys and girls.
9. Over 650 of the [Pakistani and Afghan] people illegally picked up
from different parts of the country were handed over to the United
States in return for dollars. This he admitted in his book.
10. He set new examples of cronyism, nepotism, corruption and
favouritism. During his eight years in power, Gen. Musharraf made
billions of rupees as his close associates got massive contracts from
NHA, OGDC, PIA, besides earning billions of rupees in defence deals.
Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said these are not mere allegations, but
substantial evidence is available which would be presented in
Parliament during impeachment proceedings.
He opposed the idea of giving a safe exit to Musharraf and said it was
a fit case for trial under Article 6 of the Constitution. He said the
reconciliation offer by Musharraf at this stage is meaningless as it
would be a folly to give more time to an unreliable and controversial
He said the PML-N would formally demand formation of a commission on the Kargil episode during the budget session so that those responsible for the misadventure could be brought to book.
He rejected claim by Musharraf that he had not lobbied to become Army
chief, but did not give details.
However, answering a question, he said he was amongst those who had
supported Musharraf at that time. He said the final decision was taken
by the then PM on the basis of records provided by the
Inter Services Intelligence [ISI] and the Military Intelligence [MI].
