The rule of law shall evade Pakistan if Musharaf the dictator is allowed to file his nomination papers in the forthcoming general elections.
It is a matter of record that the Special Court trying Musharaf for treason on 11th May, 2016 under Article 6 of the Constitution, 1973, declared him an absconder. Further he fraudulently misled the Court on the pretext of ill-health and has since then been absconding the country.
The Special Anti Terrorism Court, in which Musharaf is an accused in the Judges Detention case, has declared him an absconder on 10th February 2017.
In the murder trial of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto the trial court declared Musharaf as an absconder on 31st August 2017.
It is a matter of grave concern that a person who has been declared an absconder and whose warrants of arrest have been issued by various courts in the country has been allowed to file his nomination papers, conditionally. It appears that those who abrogated or hold the Constitution in abeyance and are fugitive from justice are at a premium in Pakistan.
