Quetta (HRNW) People in Balochistan staged protests in different cities against the death penalty handed over to ex-military dictator Pervez Musharraf for suspending the Constitution in 2017. A special court had announced the verdict on Tuesday. Musharraf was given six chances to defend himself in the case but he wasted those, remarked a judge. In Dera Bugti district, a rally started from Pakistan House and culminated at Kalma Chowk after different routes. The participants chanted slogans in favour of Musharraf and held banners and placards. Social activist Khan Bugti said that the people are angry because of the special court’s verdict in the Musharraf case. “He served the nation for more than 40 years and fought wars for the country’s defence,” he remarked. “How can he be called a traitor?”Another protester said that the Supreme Court should take a suo motu notice of the verdict and declare it null and void.
