Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan makes stunning revelations against Pervez Musharraf

*LAHORE - Renowned Nuclear Scientist **Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan makes stunning revelations against former President Pervez Musharraf.*

In a letter written to the Lahore High Court chief justice, the pioneer of Pakistan’s nuclear programme Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan claimed that former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, under the influence of the United States, had pressured on him to read a statement written by him [Musharraf] on the television.

According to Dr Qadeer, Musharraf had promised him that the nuclear scientist would be restored after a few days of the speech but Musharraf did not abide by his promise. Former prime minister Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and lawyer SM Zafar were also witnesses in this matter, he added.

Following no response from the provincial chief justice Sardar Shamim Ahmed Khan, Dr Qadeer filed a writ petition in the Lahore High Court requesting to allow him to move freely and appear in-person in a case already pending at the court, restraining the security officials from creating any hindrance in doing so.

A lawyers’ delegation, headed by advocate Muhammad Mudasar Chaudhry filed the petition in the court.

Dr Qadeer said, Justice Chaudhry Ijaz gave him some relief later but for the last three or four years, security officials had confined his moment to his home.

“I am restrained from going anywhere which is against the norms of moral values. I cannot go anywhere or attend any ceremony which is regrettable.”

Dr Qadeer requested LHC to hear his case in an open court rather than hearing it in the chamber.
