Allegation: Musharraf ordered the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti.
Rebuttal: Is this supposed to be an ‘objection’?
First, if the former President ordered the killing of Akbar Bugti, then, in our estimation (for reasons explained below), he did the right thing and we should be thankful to him for getting rid of an arch enemy of Pakistan. At most, we can only fault Mr Musharraf with allegedly ordering the killing so late. The alleged order should...
PAT chief may go back early due to poor health - Pakistan - DAWN.COM
Oh and he said he won't participate in Nov 30 jalsa. He probably wants to die in a dignified way.
Yet Indian members keep telling us of 'what a great triumph in diplomacy' Modi's unprovoked ceasefire violations across the LoC/WB have been, and how Pakistan "internationalizing the Kashmir issue and the LoC violations by India" reflects "Pakistan's pain" - the pain over "internationalization" appears to be one suffered by Modi and Company, as can be seen from the following, in addition to previous statements by the Indian EA spokesperson and...
