Launching a scathing attack on President Pervez Musharraf, a provincial leader of Pakistan's Jamat-i-Islami (JI) has said the General would meet the fate of former Afghanistan President Najeebullah, who was publicly hanged when the Taliban gained control of Afghanistan.
Addressing a protest rally in Karachi yesterday, JI's North West Frontier Province (NWFP) leader, Sirajul Haq said Musharraf's days were numbered in view of the bombing of a madrasa in the tribal area of Bajour in which 80 people were killed.
"Each child of the nation would hold Musharraf accountable for every drop of blood," Haq, who resigned as the Finance Minister in the Mutthahida Majlis Amal (MMA) government in NWFP after the Bajuaur attack, was quoted as saying by The Nation.
He also claimed it was the United States which bombed the madrasa, which the Pakistan government alleged was being used to train suicide bombers.
JI, which is a constituent of the Mutthahida Majlis Amal (MMA), has been holding agitations against Musharraf and pressuring the other constituents of the MMA to resign from Assemblies over the Bajaur incident and the amendments to the rape and adultery laws of the Hudood Ordinance brought in by the government.
