Pakistani Model, actress has raised her voice in support of former president General Retired Pervez Musharraf.

In her recent tweet on Thursday the beautiful Diva wrote that, “let’s put politics aside for one moment. This man was our President & guided us through some every difficult times. Like him or loathe him, he deserves the opportunity to be heard.”

Mehwish Hayat also shared the video of Ailing Musharraf’s recorded statement.

Let it be known that Former military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf has said that he is ready to record his statement in the high treason case, however, he implied that he was being victimised.

The video statement, recorded from a hospital bed, came a day after the former president complained of health issues and was shifted to a medical facility in Dubai.

“In my view, the [treason] case against me is baseless. I have gone above and beyond the call of duty for the country. I have fought wars I served the country for 10 years. That’s why I consider the case to be baseless. I consider it to be unfair and the prerequisite of justice are not being fulfilled.”

“The commission can come here and listen to me. They must see themselves how my health condition is and then decide. That commission, with my lawyer, must then be heard in the court,” he added.

The former president also expressed hope that he would get justice in the high treason case. “I hope, I will get justice,” said Musharraf.

Elaborating upon his health, the former dictator said his condition “is very bad”.

“I had been visiting the hospital regularly. This morning also, I felt dizziness and fainted. I had to be admitted to the hospital later.”

Earlier, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) has said the court is ‘burdened’ with the responsibility to hold a high treason trial in a way that is manifestly seen as fair by all parties, including the accused, as such case carries capital punishment.

The IHC three-judge bench which on November 27 stopped a Special Court from unveiling its order in a high treason case against Gen (retd) Musharraf issued its 24-page detailed order on Tuesday.
