Ever since a special court on Tuesday awarded death penalty to former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf for high treason, there is pretty much nothing else anyone can talk about.
Hamza Ali Abbasi, who is one of Pakistan’s most vocal actors, has been tweeting furiously on the matter. Earlier in the day Hamza had requested people who support Musharraf to express their views without accusing judges of being anti-Army or pro-Nawaz Sharif.
However, after the special court issued its detailed verdict, an excerpt of it went viral on social media, Hamza remarked that he takes his “words back about not accusing judges of being anti-Army or anti-Pakistan.”
“We direct the Law Enforcement Agencies to strive their level best to apprehend the fugitive/convict [Musharraf] and to ensure that the punishment is inflicted as per law and if found dead, his corpse be dragged to the D-Chowk, Islamabad and hanged for three days,” read the excerpt.
Earlier, he had tweeted that PML-N and others need to apologise for their allegations on the judiciary, during the cases against the Sharifs.
He also added that the courts should apply the same procedure to Ishaq Dar others who are not present in the country.
