We will oppose any action against Musharraf: PML-Q

     Lending its full support to former President General Pervez Musharraf, the Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid) PML-Q has decided to oppose any action against the former general under Article-Six of the Constitution. According to The Dawn, the Chaudhry brothers have sent a message to Musharraf through their messenger that they will stand by him in all circumstances. Sources said Ameer Muqaam and Khusro Bakhtiar, who are considered Musharraf's close aides, met the former president in London recently and discussed various issues regarding Pakistan's political scenario. "Amir Muqaam gave a clear message to the former president that no action will be taken against him at any forum including Parliament," Dawn quoted sources, as saying. Sources said Musharraf is in constant touch with the leaders of PML-Q's 'like minded group' and is holding meetings with them from time to time to get the first hand information regarding proceedings being initiated against him by different political quarters, particularly the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). Meanwhile, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira has said that the Pakistan People's Party's (PPP) stance on Musharraf's trial was clear. Kaira said if the PML-N wants to table a resolution in the National Assembly for Musharraf's high treason trial, then it is free do so as it was within its right. He said the PML-N has a right to demand Musharraf's trial. He, however, said Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and the PPP has time and again expressed its views over the trial debate and they are firm on their stand. "The PPP has to take along its allied parties. We have to take their viewpoints into account also," Kaira said.
