Similarly, more than 150 human lives were demolished on the day when the PPP leader Benazir Bhutto returned in the country after her exile of 9 years on October 18, 2007. He never bothered to hold any inquiry to probe into the happenings and bring about the truth. The people of Pakistan want to know as to who was behind these incidents.

3.13 Promulgation of NRO
On October 05, 2007, General Musharraf issued the worst ever law in the history of civilized world. NRO is in direct conflict with the spirit of constitution. NRO was for the protection of corruption which nullified such cases which only the courts were competent to decide.

First he over the country illegally by ousting the elected government and perpetuated his rule through an unconstitutional referendum and a so-called vote of confidence from the Electoral College.

All his acts as well as his election to presidency in 2007 were in clear violation of the Constitution.
