Nawaz should be tried for treason: Musharraf

Former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf on Monday stated that holding the establishment and the army responsible was extremely disappointing, in reaction to former premier Nawaz Sharif's statements about the Mumbai attacks in a video message released from the United Arab Emirates.
In the message, he derided Nawaz for his comments about the country's involvement in the 2008 attacks which took the lives of around 160 people, saying that Nawaz should be tried under Article 6 of the Constitution for his comments. He also called the former prime minister a traitor for defaming Pakistan on the world stage.
Petition to initiate treason case against Nawaz submitted in LHC Musharraf went on to talk about the Kargil War, blaming withdrawal of the Pakistan Army on Nawaz.
Elaborating on the war and its happenings, he said that Pakistan was in a dominating position in five different regions in the war, and that the then-prime minister was briefed on the situation at least two times, rejecting the ex-prime minister's claims that he was not taken into confidence about the withdrawal.
