The statement certainly was odd:
“Gen Musharraf planned a bloodbath of innocent Muslims at the behest of others only to prolong his rule, but we in the PML-N opposed his policies and rejected dictation from abroad and if the Taliban are also fighting for the same cause then they should not carry out acts of terror in Punjab (where the PML-N is ruling),” he said at a seminar held here on Sunday to commemorate the services of late Mufti Muhammad Hussain Naeemi.
Of course this has led to an uproar and every joker has had a field day. PML-N was out to limit damage. But what I sort-of enjoyed was Shahbaz running to Daddy Kiyani to say ‘I really didn’t mean it’!
