Zardari gained the most from the assassination of Benazir Bhutto: Musharraf

Islamabad: Reacting upon the allegation made by Bilawal Bhutto in connection with the assassination of former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto, Former Pakistani President Parvez Musharraf, said Bilawal Zardari and Nawaz Shareef army want to build pressure on me. He said former president Asif Zardari, who is the father of Bilawal, gained the most from the assassination of the country’s first woman prime minister.

The former president is in self-exile in Dubai, the statement was issued by the political party Al-Pakistan Muslim League in which the former president rebutted the charges levied against him in connection with Benazir Bhutto’s assassination. In the statement he said Bilawal is shouting slogans against me like women, he asked Bilawal to first become man, then raise slogans against him. Bilawal should not levy charges like a child, he must bring the evidence to light, Musharraf said.

The former President said it was not my duty to provide security to Benazir, still government provided best security to her. She was between the people for two hours in a fool-proof vehicle. Had she not taken out his head from the vehicle she would have been saved. It should be taken into account who gained the most from her assassination. Super power wanted me to be the president, and I had agreement with Benazir as well. Asif Zardari is the one who gained most, he brought fake ‘will’ and grabbed Benazir’s party and wealth.

Musharraf raised several questions including on whose instructions the roof of bullet proof vehicle was cut? Who asked Benazir to look out of the vehicle? Who misplaced the phone on which the call was made thrice? Where did Rahman Malik, the security chief went, leaving the duty? Who stopped post-mortem of Benazir’s body? “All the evidences go against only one person and there was just one person that had everything to gain from Benazir’s assassination and that was Asif Ali Zardari,” Musharraf said,

The 54-year-old Pakistan People’s Party chief and a two-time prime minister Benazir Bhutto was killed along with more than 20 people in a gun and bomb attack in Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh during an election campaign rally on December 27, 2007.
