ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Pervaiz Rashid said on Sunday that there should be no politicking on the Model Town incident, which was actually a human tragedy.

While talking to various news channels he said the participants of the so-called all-parties conference (APC) on the issue were the remnants of military dictator Pervez Musharraf and are creating problems in the country to save him. The minister said they were only doing politics on dead bodies as they had no other issue. He assured that those involved in the Model Town tragedy would be brought to book at all costs.

Rashid noted that the Punjab government has asked its law minister to tender resignation to ensure a free and fair inquiry into the incident.

The information minister questioned whether Pervez Elahi had asked his brother (Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain), the then interior minister, to resign after the Lal Masjid incident. He said most of the APC leaders did not believe in law and the constitution. He said they want disruption and violence to create anarchy in the country.

"Did they ever demand a resignation from Musharraf, the then president, after Lal Masjid and May 12, 2007 tragedies?" he asked. He said there was no harm in reconstitution of the judicial commission probing the Model Town incident, if law permitted, but the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) would continue protesting, as this is their sole objective. He said the government would implement the recommendations of the judicial commission in letter and spirit.
