General Aslam Baig on Pakistan emergency Rule

General Mirza Aslam Baig was Chief of Staff of the Pakistani army from 1988 to 1991. He took over the post after the death of General Zia-ul-Haq in an air crash.

He spoke to Geo TV today.
General (retired) Aslam Baig said that everything happening in Pakistan was carried out with the full approval of the US and was only done for the benefit of General Musharraf and Benazir Bhutto.

The so called emergency rule is in fact worse than martial law, as there is no appeal for any of its victim.

The outcome of the farcical democratic election will be far from free and fair. The result will be jobs for the boys in the establishment and a very weak opposition, the same as what happened in 2000.

The press and media will not have same freedom as they enjoyed before this dubious martial law.
