KARACHI/LAHORE: The daughters of Asif Zardari and Yousaf Raza Gilani engaged in Twitter spat over the forgiveness of Musharraf.
Taking to Twitter, Former premier Yousaf Raza Gillani’s daughter Fiza Batool, said, “When you chose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power !! Forgiveness is virtue of the brave.”
Responding to her, Bakhtawar replied, “Highly insensitive tweet. Absolutely no bravery or place to forgive. Perhaps this is what your family feel but as the daughter of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto – it certainly isn’t what I feel – especially given his direct involvement (with no remorse) in my mother’s assassination.”
It is to be mentioned here that the former army chief, who ruled Pakistan for almost nine years, made the headlines again, after he had expressed his wish to spend his remaining years in Pakistan.
Sources close to the ex-army chief had said that Musharraf wanted to move to Pakistan at the earliest. His family said it was impossible for him to recover.
The report was followed by a statement by PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif wherein he had urged the new government to allow the former dictator to come back. It may be noted here that Musharraf had come to power after toppling the government of then premier Nawaz.
Similarly, the Pakistan Army spokesperson had expressed support for the return of the former army chief during a press briefing a day earlier.
