Pervaiz Musharraf opens new pendora box over Asif Zardari - Benazir Bhutto marriage
KARACHI: Former president Pervez Musharraf has revealed that if ex-prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto was alive, he would have never allowed his daughter Benazir’s marriage with Asif Ali Zardari.
In an interview with a private television channel, Musharraf said that Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto didn’t like Zardari family and he always tried to refrain from making any relation with them.
He alleged that Zardari killed Murtaza Bhutto outside his residence in 70 Clifton in Karachi amid strict security arrangements, adding that Murtaza Bhutto hated Zardari as he once shaved off his moustache by himself. Murtaza Bhutto was member of a terrorist organization ‘Al-Zulfiqar’ and he used to torture and murder his rivals, he stated.
Former army official said that the involvement of Saudi Shah Abdullah in plane hijack case saved ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif as he was sentenced to death by anti-terrorism court. He was given life imprisonment and exile instead, he continued.
