ISLAMABAD: Opposition parties in Pakistan have lashed out at President Pervez Musharraf for violating the country's Official Secrets Act to sell his book In the Line of Firefor his personal benefit, as well using public money to promote it. A spokesperson for the Pakistan People's Party said the book raised "the moral and political" question if a sitting army chief and President could take public positions on national policy issues and whether he should spend public funds for promoting his book.
