President of Pakistan General (Retd) Pervaiz Musharaf while addressing a gathering of 800 or so Pakistanis in Hilton Hotel, Park Lane in London on 25th of January, incited violence by asking the Pakistani community to hit such people (in Urdu ‘or mayray khayal mein us ko dou teen tikka b dain tou acha hai”). He was referring to the senior Pakistani journalist M. Ziauddin, who asked him a grilling question at RUSI where Musharaf gave talk earlier in the day.
The so-called problematic question was about Rashid Raufs disappearance. If people may recall that barely a month back the Police came crying home saying that Rashid Rauf had slipped through their fingers while he was allowed to munch down a Big Mac, read more on the issue on the post made on Dec 24th ISI agents orchestrate a staged escape of Rashid Rauf
Musharraf felt that such grueling questions degraded the image of Pakistan and the journalist should have known better. Here attached is an audio clip of the talk, one must notice that the President seems to act more like a stand up comedian then actually a respectable President of Pakistan.
While in another comment d0ct0r again shares with us the official rebuttal by Rashid Qureshi, who quite literally fails miserably in defending Musharraf’s statement and utter frustration hangs up the phone in midst conversation with the BBC correspondent

It seems to be yet another PR disaster to add to the ongoing miseries for Musharraf and his team of cronies
