Former Federal Parliamentary Affairs Minister Dr. Sher Afghan Khan Niazi has said that the decision of Supreme Court to summon Former President Gen. (Retd) Pervez Musharraf on July 29 was malafide.

The decision was aimed to disturb Musharraf and take revenge from him because he dismissed Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and other judges for not taking oath under Provincial Constitutional Ordinance (PCO), he said this while talking to media men on Thursday. The decision has no constitutional value, he said.

He also termed the decision as part of judicial activism. A larger bench of Supreme Court validated the steps taken by Musharraf on November 03 and now the same Supreme Court has summoned him, he said.

The Supreme Court instead of concentrating towards national issue was opening a new Pandora box, he said, adding that, the country is already facing several crises and can not bear more. The decision can also cause negative impact on ongoing operation Rah-e-Rast and Rah-e-Nijat against militants in Swat and South Waziristan as well as country's sovereignty. There was no room in constitution to summon Former President and Chief of the army staff, he claimed.

He went on to say Prime Minister is Chief Executive of Federation instead of President.
