The Pakistani army will try to rescue Imran Khan’s government in order to save former President Pervez Musharraf. European think tanks have made this claim
The Pakistani army will try to save the former President Pervez Musharraf with the help of Imran Khan’s government. This claim has been made by a think tank called the European Foundation for South Asian Studies (EFSAS). It is noteworthy that former President Musharraf was sentenced to death in the case of treason in the past. Musharraf filed a petition in the Lahore High Court on Friday challenging the sentence.
This decision, heard by a special court, was described as unprecedented and historic. This was the first time in the history of seven decades when an army chief (serving or retired) faced trial. According to a report by a European think tank, the decision could jeopardize the military’s bribery in Pakistan.
The leader and the judiciary are presenting a challenge to the army’s bribe
The army has always been dominant in Pakistan’s politics. The biggest example of this is Musharraf himself, who ruled for eight years in 1999 after the coup of the then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. After this decision, it seems that the leaders and the judiciary are presenting a challenge to the army’s bribe. Musharraf’s sentence was passed on to the Pakistani army and he has questioned the court’s decision.
Imran Khan is acting like a military puppet
According to the European think tank, the chances of a coup are low at this time. This is because Prime Minister Imran Khan is acting like a military puppet. There have been many occasions when the Imran Khan government has appeared with the army on the judicial and political front.
The court may suffer the brunt of the army’s displeasure
The European think tank’s report states that the judiciary may suffer from the army’s displeasure. For this, she will use the Imran government. The Imran government had refused to respond to the decision. After the decision by PM Imran’s Special Assistant for Information and Broadcasting, Firdous Ashiq Awan, said, “Legal experts will analyze its effects legally in the context of political and national interest and then a government statement will be presented to the media. ‘
Judges will be targeted
Let me tell you that it was decided to take action against Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth, who is ruling the case. Country’s Attorney-General Anwar Mansoor Khan had said that Seth’s mental balance was not good. The Pakistan government decided to file a reference in the Supreme Judicial Council against Justice Seth. Citing this, the European think tank’s report states that two other judges will be targeted in the same way in the coming months.
