While condemning the severe criticism the Pakistan Army had to face for its role in the Abbottabad commission, Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain said the commission was “unnecessary” and was formed under “immense pressure and haste”.
“That is why I pinpointed this issue at a very early
stage that it would be unnecessary to make this commission and now it seems that there is more loss than gain in this deal,” said Hussain in a statement released on Wednesday.
“As work done in haste always ends up in waste.”
The PML-Q president said that the investigation should have taken place under the direct supervision of the chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (JCSC).
He asserted that the report of the findings should
have been presented directly to parliament and the cabinet.
He termed it “unfortunate and highly irresponsible” that the findings were made public on various media sources while the investigation was still underway by the commission.
Hussain insisted that “in the larger interest of national security” there should be no hesitation in closing the commission. Press Release
