Jamaat-e-Islami to file petition against Musharraf

Jamaat-e-Islami to file petition against MusharrafKarachi, Mar. 20 : Pakistan's Jamaat-e-Islami party has decided to file a petition against former Pakistan President General (r) Pervez Musharraf over the Lal-Masjid operation, and ongoing army operation in tribal areas of the country.

JeI leader Asadullah Bhutto told The Nation that the Central Shoora of party would decide the future course of action about to file the petition against Musharraf, and the party has not finalized its strategy so far.

Bhutto said has expressed satisfaction and happiness on the reinstatement of Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry and other judges, who had been deposed by Musharraf.

"The PCO judiciary has not been able to provide justice to the people, and it was the major reason why JeI did not make party's policy to file the petition against Pervez Musharraf," The Nation quoted him, as saying.

All sacked judges of the Supreme Court and the high courts, including Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, will resume their earlier positions from March 22. (ANI)
