Rashid appeals for probe against Musharraf, Imran over links with RAW

Lahore: Pakistan Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has appealed for an investigation against former military dictator General Pervez Musharraf and all those politicians who had supported him for their suspected links with India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). Rashid’s comments come days after Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) senator Mustafa Kamal claimed that his party had ties with the Indian spy agency.

Speaking at the oath-taking ceremony of the Advertising Booking Centers Association in Lahore , Rashid said that any probe into MQM’s alleged ties with the RAW should be expanded to include the likes of Musharra f because he had included MQM in his government, reports The Express Tribune.

The probe, Rashid said, should also include other members of the ‘Musharraf league’ such as the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, who was part of the 2002 National Assembly which had been elected under Musharraf’s dictatorship.

Rashid asked ‘why Imran had remained silent when he saw MQM chief Altaf Hussain’s posters in India’.
