LAHORE: A war of allegations of supporting dictators fired up between Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif and PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain on Sunday.
Hours after Nawaz's statement that his party will welcome the Chaudhry brothers if they apologise for committing the “sin” of backing dictatorship, Shujaat quipped that he [Nawaz] should apologise first for the “same sin” he had committed 15 years back.
He said, “He committed the “same sin” when he took General Ziaul Haq inside the assembly hall – the stronghold of democracy.”
“He [Nawaz] alleges that we worked with non-democratic courts, in fact, he should be apologising before asking us to do so.”
