Shujaat, Nawaz blame each other for backing dictatorship

Shujaat says Nawaz should apologise for backing dictatorship before asking others.

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.”

Well! Shujaat's demand is unjustified as Nawaz Sharif has already appologized for backing dictatorship first in 1993 and then through Charter of Democracy with PPP.

Nawaz Sharif has become mature and wise since his return. In western and established democracies , politicians do not act like MAULA JUTT on issues. They make compromises unlike totalitarian societies where violence is the only way to settle issues.
