“Even if the constitution of a country is standing in its way to change for the better then it should be amended before long,” the retired chief of the army staff said addressing an event here at a local hotel.
Musharraf said that there were no two ways about the fact that this obsolete system direly needed to be overhauled before it was too late.
“Change is the top demand of the oppressed people of Pakistan.

“Terrorists are slaughtering innocent people only because they do not fit the profile of a Muslim as dictated by their distorted version of religion,” the APML leader said
