Parliament conflict over prayers for Pervez Musharraf

The death of former Military General Pervez Musharraf left the Pakistani parliament into two sides, the political rivalry came into the surface and members started arguing on making prayers for late Pervez Musharraf.

The National Assembly offered Fateha prayers for late General Pervez Musharraf on which Mohsin Dawar said that no one is ready to recite Fateha for someone who was enemy of Pakistan. If any kind of protocol is given to him that means that he is above the constitution of country. It all started when Jamat E Islami member, Mushtaq Ahmad said that I am ready to say prayers for Syrian and Turkish victims of earthquake but not for Pervez Musharraf.
