NAWABSHAH, Aug 13: All Pakistan Democratic Movement (APDM) has called for immediate resignation of President Musharraf, restoration of judges, and end to army operations in the NWFP and Balochistan.
Leaders said this in a seminar on “Real Democracy – Need of Today” organised by the APDM Nawabshah here, on Wednesday.
Chairman, Awami Tahreek Rasool Bux Palijo said Pakistan was not an independent state as it was handed over to the US soon after its creation. He called Pakistan illegal and unconstitutional as it was not according to the 1940 Resolution and history based on falsehood.
He criticised Abdul Hafeez Pirzada for playing the role of an agent and urged him to return to prove he was son of the soil.
Regarding Benazir’s assassination, he said no family can refuse postmortem if asked by a judge.
He demanded withdrawal of the US and NATO forces from Afghanistan and Iraq instead deployment of peace keeping forces of the OIC and the United Nations.
Senior Vice President of Sindh Taraqi Passand Party, Abdul Hameed Memon slammed Musharraf for destroying institutions. He asked Zardari to stop fooling people by saying that Army and agencies had no role in politics. He said the APDM believed Musharraf and agencies were involved in the assassination of Benazir Bhutto and Akbar Bugti.
Altaf Hussain was asking women to keep pistol in purses against Talibanisation but the people of Sindh will not allow the MQM to take control of the province, he said.
Dr Asadullah Bhutto, Ameer Jamat-e-Islami Sindh said the APDM was the pioneer of impeachment movement as it demanded Musharraf’s removal in London. He said Peoples Party’s refusal to cooperate with the APDM for election boycott extended his stay.
He strongly criticised the meeting of rulers with the US delegates and urged not to provide Musharraf a safe passage.
