“Shaukat Aziz to be brought to Pakistan through Interpol”, read a news report. How come anyone even remotely connected with the Bugti death is to be tried – General Pervez Musharraf as President, Shaukat Aziz as PM, Owais Ghani as Governor Balochistan, Aftab Sherpao as Interior Minister etc, but in the case of November 3, abrogation of the constitution, a much more serious offence, only Musharraf is being singled out for trial and a horde of other army and civil persons, equally involved in the crime, are not to be touched? It was quite comical to hear Hamid Khan advocate say the other day on a TV show that let’s try Musharraf for high treason under November 3 case, as it is simpler than the October 12, 1999 case (in which case apart from many other generals the higher judiciary was also involved)! Does it not tantamount to saying, “Hang Musharraf” whatever be the manner?”
