SUKKUR: The All Pakistan Muslim League Chief General Pervaiz Musharraf said on Sunday that the international community does not trust Pakistan enough to donate funds for the rehabilitation of the rain victims of Sindh and Balochistan.


He was addressing an APML Sukkur divisional party convention at Phool Bagh Khairpur through video link.He said that when he was the president, he received 6.5 billion dollars for the rehabilitation of the earthquake victims and added that they still remain without shelter and relief.


Musharraf said when he was head of state, there was respect of the country, but now the international community is exploiting Pakistan.The former president said the sacrilegious film was against the Muslims and was made to instigate Muslims and hurt them. He demanded a concrete legislation and act against the desecration of any religion. He said that the movie was no doubt hurtful to Muslims and billions of Muslims were protesting across the world against it. However, damaging the assets of one’s own country and killing one’s own countrymen was not good. He added that such violence-based protests give a bad image of Pakistan to the world. He also criticised the role of the state and said that their silence led to further provocation among Muslims.


Musharraf said when the elections come, the same party will contest elections. He urged the Independent Election Commission, impartial caretaker government and even the PM for free and fair elections. He demanded that the elections be held under the supervision of the Pakistan Army.


APML workers, in their slogans, urged the leader to come back to save Pakistan. In response, Musharraf said that he will very soon come back and urged the people to come forward for saving Pakistan.
