Monday's Connector of the Day: Pervez Musharraf

February 9th, 2010
09:03 PM ET

Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf is becoming one of the biggest stars on Facebook.

Pervez Musharraf

Pervez Musharraf

His personal Facebook page has more than 127,000 fans and he regularly answers questions and posts status updates.

Musharraf swept to power in 1999 in a bloodless coup, removing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and appointing himself president in 2001, while remaining the head of the military.

Considered an ally by the United States in the fight against Islamic extremists in the region, he was criticized for impeding democratic elections in 2008 – including delaying the elections, suspending the country's constitution, restricting the media and having political protesters arrested.

Ultimately, the pro-Musharraf party – Muslim League-Q – finished third in the voting and he stepped down only after the ruling coalition announced it would seek to impeach him.

Musharraf, speaking on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" last May, said he wishes the current government well and that he "would be the happiest person" if the nation deals well with threats such as the growing political and martial strength of the Taliban.

We want to know what you think. What would you like to ask the former Pakistani leader?

    Upon reading about Dr. Afaia's case it seems very confusing. How come the Pakistani Government did not deal with her case directly on Pakistani soil to get all answers clearly for the Pakistani Nation and the world without prejudice? This happened during Mr. Musharaff"s Presidency.

    Dear Pervez,
    2 questions. 1.Would you say that Pakistan still holds true to being called an Islamic Republic when the fundamental law of the land seems not to be based on Shariah but on Western Law? 2.Also, what do you say of the present governemnt and their fight against the militants, can they win, and what tactics would you advise them to use?
    Many thanks

    Sir,
    First of all i honestly believe that you were the best leader Pakistan ever got. My family belongs to armed forces so i know how it feels when you are not home anymore.I think your biggest mistake was joining PML ( Q) and taking on Chief justice. Your critics back home think that you are a west crony and you left Pakistan as everybody does after their tenure including my father. My question to you are as follows:-

    1.) Why On Earth did you resign..?
    2.) How does it feel when we have the most notorious thief as a President right now..?
    3.) Any Plans to come back home and reconcile with your supporters like me who have been defending you in all their discussions with your opponents and dont have much reasons to defend..??

    During the early years of his presidency he spoke a lot about the relevance of power projects in different areas across Pakistan claiming that these projects had a timeline stretching uptil 2050. He did not deliver on them. What were the obstacles he faced, since now Pakistan is reeling from lack of electricity.

    Mr. Musharaf:

    You have run the government for most of a decade. Can you please elaborate if it is even remotely possible to manage this nation of 170 Million people in its own best interest without bending over under external and internal pressures? What kind of person or leader will it take to actually act truly and selflessly on behalf of the people of Pakistan and not succumb to pressure and make decisions that he or she or they know are NOT favoring the nation?

    Alternatively, is it possible to have a partnership with any other nation or country wherein Pakistan receives all the necessary support and not be required to tow a line deterrent to its own good?

    In my mind, the answers to these question alone hold the mystery of the survival of Pakistan.

    Thank you.

    My questions for Mr.Musharraf
    1.Ardeshir Cowasjee, a dogged believer in Jinnah's Pakistan, is fond of repeating what Jinnah is said to have told Cowasjee senior: ˜Mark my words, each successive government of Pakistan will be worse than its predecessor” (Hindu Magazine,17th Jan ’10) .Honestly, can you disagree with Mr. Cowasjee ?
    2.Jinnah never wanted that either the military or the mullas rule Pakistan. Gen. Zia hanged Butto, trampled democracy, and brought in theocracy based military rule. You did your lot by usurping Nawaz Sherif, though you were generous enough not to hang him. How can you deny that, in effect , the military has been airbrushing Jinnah’s vision off ?
    3.To further their interest ,the military aided by the mullahs, has entrenched its tentacles across Pakistani society and institutions, except perhaps the press, by instilling India fear in Pakistani psyche. To wit, 60 % of companies listed in Karachi Stock Exchange are directly or indirectly controlled by Military personnel. Do you honestly believe that India will attack Pakistan without any provocation?
    4. Isn’t it correct that the military has never allowed democracy to evolve in Pakistan?
    5. (a) Wasn't partition a historic blunder (b)Wouldn't have the lot of Pakistani people been better in an undivided India?
    6. Honestly, as a human being which do you consider as better- a culturally diverse India or Islamized Pakistan?

    Dear Mushraf,

    Two pakistani soldiers have received Nishan-e-Haider award after Kargil war in 1999. Will you accept that it was pakistan army fighting with Indian forces during 1999 kargil war and it was not kashmiri freedom fighters ?

    And why did you do that ? 1000s of soldiers have lost their lives in both the side. Do you feel guilty for that ?

    Musharraf was and still is the voice of the common Pakistanis. I was very optimistic about our country progressing on lightning speed with the help of leader like Altaf Hussain and his party MQM. After Musharraf now only Altaf Hussain is left there holding grounds for the moderate and educate people and against the extremists and illiterates. I wish Musharraf comes back to power and save Pakistan from complete disaster.

    Musharraf cared about one thing and one thing alone and that was his power. During his ten years of dictatorship the country suffered the worst financial loss. Pakistan's core assets such as steel mill and PTCL were sold out to foreign entities. If he wanted he could have been a true leader and setup a true democracy and not taken the country for a joy ride. Under his regime all he manged to do was to please and take care of American interest. Now he is pretending to be the good guy and wants to come back to power.

    Was "Enlightened Moderation" really necessary?. Or, was it not a ploy to stay in power?...

    In your 10 years in power, what did you really do for the country?... you left with the same people in power that you have come in 10 years earlier with a vow to drive out.

    Are you not a complete and utter failure as a) An Armyman – Kargil b) A statesman – left the country in disarray and shambles c) A muslim – your shenanigans around enlightened moderation.

    The country surely could've done without your rushing to its aid – not that there were many other options, the army never really has allowed politics and political parties to mature, you, just took away another 10 years of that process. Shame on you.

    Why you did not choose to punish all those who have looted the countries wealth? but you rewarded them by cleaning their past corruption?

    If Nawaz & Benazir both were corrupt then why you have made deals with both of them and why you have left the country again on their mercy?

    Altaf Husain is the killer of hundreds of innocent people, why you did not brought him to justice? Why you did not questions his assets & and instead made him the partner in your government?

    Even after 62 years, why the Governments had failed miserably in domestic policies to provide the basic infrastructure to public? Energy shortages remain a feature of everyday life. Power demand in cities has eclipsed available supply, leading to power cuts and load shedding that can last from eight to twelve hours a day. Blackouts are crippling industries and having a devastating impact on the lives of ordinary people. What steps were taken in your administration to handle this issue? Please be specific.

    I find it a common view in Pakistan that you were a very popular figure for over 7 years. Your government had a lot of support till March 2007, i.e when you sacked the Chief Justice.

    However, the last 18 months of your rule saw a lot of turmoil. Lal Masjid, Emergency Rule, Media Ban, Bhutto's assassination... all contributed to your fall.

    1. Do you feel that, had you left power a little sooner, you would be considered a hero.? You could have returned to power in the future.

    2. Do you feel that you had the right people around you... especially in the critical end period?

    Mr. Musharraf:

    A brief preface: During your leadership and during regimes past and present it has been boldly asserted that the issue of control of Kashmir is central to the stability and future of Pakistan.

    Given that by your own admission and that of the present leaders of Pakistan half the country is not even currently in the control of the government and is semi-autonomous (read: he who has the ak-47 makes the laws) how can anyone take seriously that gaining control of yet another remote economically unproductive region would stabilize Pakistan?

    It is difficult to grasp the theory behind the claim that is so often made

    An additional question:

    The topic of nuclear contingency planning regarding Pakistan's weapons arsenal has been a topic of much debate recently.

    Putting yourself in the shoes of a US military general what course of action would you recommend if the current regime in the country were to be toppled and extremists gained control of the government and/or military?

    What options are actionable and justified in your view in such a scenario?

    He did what needed to be done and saved Pakistan from far worse position, the then prime minister was gradually dismantling the democratic systems putting in his proxies into key government positions. The only thing he couldn't do was put his buddies into the military.
    Musharraf is a good patriot and sacrificed career for the greater good of his country. How many politicians would do that. I am a non Pakistani (Turkish) so I see it from the outside.

    Pakistan is worst off after Musharraf left. Just a few facts:
    1. Inflation has gone up by 50% in two years.
    2. $15 billion investment has left the country.
    3. 30% devaluation of Rs. Rs. / $ gone from Rs.60 to now over Rs. 86
    4. Stock market is down by 40%
    5. Load shedding is up.
    6. Food shortages and hoarding of sugar and wheat.

    We want you back to bring poor Pakistanis their rights.
    We want you to stand up to India as you did.
    We want you to fight the terrorists as you did.
    You even make the Muslims of India very proud. Only you talk about the Gujrat genocide of Muslims by Hindus. Only you talk about the Indian Human rights violations in Kashmir.

    You did not allow Blackwater to come into Islamabad. Now there are there in the hundreds, renting houses.

    Westerners do not understand (or understand too well) that in Pakistan Feudal Lords dictate who is elected. Unless these Feudals are removed and land reform takes place, there is no freedom of voting.

    Timing for you to comeback to Pakistan is NOT RIGHT for now. You will need at least two years to build a movement.

    I wish Musharraf the Best!

    He is and will be a Great Leader for the Pakistani middle class.

    he was the best leader Pakistan ever had, unfortunately surrounded by thugs and that infamous team of incompetent psycophants. things he did saved Pakistan from the brink of ruin. it took the present inept democracy of Pakistan 8 months to destroy the powerful economic foundation Musharraf built. within the first year of Musharraf's departure Pakistan was back into the IMF fold. his was the true democracy and a leadership whose love for Pakistan was never in doubt. i wish him well and truly hope he can get back to Pakistan as its leader. i'd advise him to choose his team out of the young Pakistanis than to go to those old guns of Pakistan's incpompetent political system.

    1- Do you think democracy is the right way to rule Pakistan – with quarter of our population living below the poverty line, half of the population is illiterate, a common man has no access to justice & lacks basic security, a country governed by feudal/tribal lords(having a automatic election into the parliament). How can a group of people deprived of basic necessities like food,education, security, justice & even clean water can vote fairly in a system that is tailor-made to bring same faces back into the power corridor of Islamabad again & again? Is there an alternate to democracy or is there a future of Pakistan under the existing democratic system?
    2- On a lighter side, do you agree with the notion that " In democracy, some times all the fools are one the same side i.e. majority " :)?

    I am a big fan of Mush.....after the death of Quaid e Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah we didn't see a true leader in Pakistan....but accidently when you came into power....you raised hope of the poor peoples of Pakistan....oppressed by feudals, corrupt politicians and ever-strong bureaucracy. In your fisrt televised speech you made commitments on real issues faced by the nation....but as the time progressed...you too became part of the power-circle by supporting feudals and corrupt politicians.

    What i like the most from your government is Local Government System which brought tremendous change in the lives of common peoples and witnessed historic works in Karachi and rest of the country.

    Lastly, a suggestion to you....If you have decided to came into politics (which i stongly support)....try to bring new motivated individulas from grass root level....just like Mustafa Kamal (Mayor of Karachi) and make us proud nation once again...Pakistan First

    Before making any suggestions it is better to analyses the situation in our country and make our mind where we are hearing for, the situation in Pakistan is not of making progress toward economic prosperity, but to make a safe and secure Civil Society where, balance of Power is defined within the Institutions, like the current circumstances as it seems, like if the Government have don’t have two third majority in Parliament to pass any legislation then the Judiciary takes over in interpretation of the Low, where Government is no more. So we are missing the link between the institution where the boundaries of responsibility and right are to be defined not on the bases of circumstances but of future prospects of our nation.
    I am a strong believer of the person who have the guts of making prompt and appropriate decisions in making the life of the people more ease, rather then waiting for the Judgments of the Courts for everyday life issues, which is the ultimate responsibility of Democratic Government. In this regard i believe Mr. Musharaf must come back and complete its initiatives which he has started in 2001, because the mistakes of 60 cannot be corrected in 60 days, this requires determination and resources both physical and communal across the board.

    Ex President Musharraf claims that when he arrived their was a surplus and no electricity was need, however i don't understand that does he not consider the fact that it was still very expensive and he should have increased the production to a level where Pakistan could offer cheaper electricity like the western countries (effects of economies of scale), where ppl have central heating and cooling systems because of cheaper electricity!!!

    Hats off to Mr. Musharaf for his work. Every human being is capable to making mistakes but the wise person is the one who makes a mistake, learn from it, and stay away from it.

    For those who say that Mr. Musharaf's era was full of financial problems, they are totally wrong.

    A country which has been spiraling downwards for the last 60+ years, 10 years of Mr. Musharaf did change significantly ,it has slowed down that downward movement. I strongly believe if Mr. Musharaf has stayed in power or if he returns to power, the country will move in a positive direction, move counter to downward ill fated spiral.

    Here are some facts ( Courtesy of Ajj Kamran Khan Kay sath -Feb 9 2010) Below is the comparison of the price when Mr. Musharaf left to this day(so called democarcy) Span of 2 yrs from 2007-2009

    Flour 13 Rs/Kg -- now 31Rs/Kg (238% increase)
    Sugar 21Rs/Kg -- now 70 Rs/Kg (333% increase)
    Milk 32 Rs/Kg -- now 46 Rs/Kg (45% increase )
    Motorcycle 32 K Rs -- now 46K Rs (45% increase)
    Stock Market 16K points-now 9K point (What a shame)
    Phone call TX 15% - now 19.5 %
    Sales Tax 11% - now 16%
    Terror attack 1306(2007) 2586 (2009)
    US Dollar 60 Rs (was stable 5 yrs) 86Rs Now
    Eco. Growth 6.8% ---only 2% now

    I challenge anyone to deny the above facts.

    We should based our judgment based on the facts and figures and not only on loyalties.

    So my question to Mr. Mushraf, Dear Sir would you even consider returning to political power, if so, when will we see/hear the good news. The poor of the Pakistan are suffering and rich are getting richer.

    The poor of Pakistan need a voice, we need you Mr. Musharaf in some way or form. Help Pakistan ( and whats left of it)

    Dear Musharraf,
    Everybody in the world knows that all the state affairs in Pakistan are controlled by army.You did lot of things against the wishes of then government of Sharif.I want to know,how long your army interest will be paramount than your national interest?
    i feel that most of the indian and pakistanis want to have very friendly relations with each other.But your army survives on the philosophy of hate India philosophy.Suppose Pakistan has friendly relations with India and we live like E U Nations then the importance of Pakistani army will vanish and your army does't want that.So continue ruining Pakistan. I am firm believer that both nations can live together without giving to much importance to the border.How long we will keep dividing ourselves?We have same heritage.Will some statesman take over Pakistan and do the right things to save Pakistan. Or person like you who used terrorist against India and the same terrorist are ruining Pakistan now,keep ruling Pakistan.I wish and pray that Pakistan gets some visionary leader who can show way to Pakistan and to its people.Ameen.

    If we go back in 2007 and see where our country was soaring in every walk of life for the first time in Paksitan history and then compare to where we are now in 2010, we would take a deep sigh and say we wish Mr Pervez Musharraf would come back again! We still believe that Mr Musharraf has been the best so far. He is an intelligent leader who has been honest and most trustworthy to his people. We want him to make a political party and to run our country admistration once again.

    Also, the people of Pakistan have realized what mistake they had done to elect such corrupt politicians who are making our lives miserable on a daily basis. The inflaction has gone up by 50% since 2007 and Pakistan is now depended on IMF once again. The safety and security of common men is also zero through out the country. On the other hand, these politicians are involved in bribes and kick backs. They know they are here for the shortest of time so they want make a most it to fill their pockets.

    Let us bury the past and concentrate on future. The parliamentary form of Government has failed badly in Pakistan. Mr. Musharraf should concentrate on bringing Presidential form of Government in Pakistan. He should make it a central issue in his agenda. Pakistan should be divided into ten administrative units i.e. north Sind, south sind, south Punjab, central Punjab, north punjab, Kalat and Baluchistan. hazara and frontier and Baltistan and kashmir.

    It hurts when people say that Pakistan suffered losses during Musharraf's tenure, it hurts when people say that there was no growth....

    were daily life commodities were in scarce as are now?
    electricity shortage was just 1300 MW now is 3000 MW
    there were no drone attacks
    the number of bombings inside Pakistan have doubled
    we have taken millions and billions of loans

    nobody allowed him to make KALABAGH DAM which would not only result in employment vacancies but, electricity also getting cheaper in cost....

    Being an expatriate Pakistani I believe Mr Musharraf's actionsforemost being in kickstarting the economy and bringing some semblance and pride in ordinary Pakistanis by his eloquent discourse is what Pakistanis will miss.
    It is not Musharraf's loss but of Pakistan. We need people like him in the top echelons of power who can have an opinion and stick to it rather than have the current laughing stock politicians and their dilly dallying at the afflictions affecting this country.

    I don't agree a lot on the Lawyers movement. This was a political movement and the people(read so called Lawyer) leading it didnt even have a clean image himself as well. Rather he has been accused of defending people/companies which have embezzled Billions of Rupees.

    Atleast Mr Musharraf didn't have that. And this is what scares the political parties the most which is why they don't want him back. Hence the so called accusations leveled against him. When people talk of Dr Aafia or other people who ended up as missing, we must not forget a lot of them had chequered histories and maybe Aafia is guilty. That is what amazes me. In Pakistan people are so fixated with conspiracy theories that the whole world is about to get them that one loses the point in the argument and the conversation goes on to become a tirade.
    Mr Musharraf we want you back and now with more zeal. Let you be our Ataturk!!

    Dear Mr. Musharraf – (1) With regards to Pakistan's Eastern Border, what do you think the country should do to resolve the water dispute with India as this matter is gaining intensity with every passing day.
    (2) With Indian strategy for a Cold Start in case of a war, the winter weather clearing up and the Pakistan Armed Forces stratched thin due to the conflict on its Western Border, do you think India might be vying its options for for some action. Any word for the Indians?
    (3) What, in your opinion, should be Pakistan's strategy to win the war, or resolve the terrorism problem, on its Western Borders.
    (4) After all that you have done for strengthening Pakistan's economy and its integrity, how does it feel to see all of it being ruined by some people who have not even managed their own finances properly and are now running the Government.
    (5) What do you think should be done to bring true democracy to Pakistan
    By the way, for me and my family, You are THE best thing that has happened to Pakistan since Quid-e-Azam, Mr. Muhammad Ali Jinnah passed away in September 1948.

    Agree or disagree is any one's prerogative Musharraf was a better ruler than the rulers of the past, may be political Bhuttos, Mians of Lahore or Arain (Zia) & Khans (Ayyub) in uniform. Every ruler tried to befool this nation in the name of democracy and took the maximum advantage for him/herself and their kith and kins and plundered the national exchequer without the remotest thinking of welfare of the common men. Musharraf is a pragmatic visonary person of moderate mindset. In muslims, concept of democracy is yet to be realized. It's not a matter of few years that democracy could be implemented in countries where muslims are dominant. You will have to teach people and then move forward. As regards why Musharraf could not implement in his reign of nine years is simple said than done. Being head of the family you can not exercise absolute power in your own domestic affairs how could one expect from a ruler who is made controversial by the vested interests for their own benefits. All these mullas like Qazi, Munawwar and Fazlur Rehman and notorious and corrupt leaders like Nawaz, Zardari keep alluring the masses in the name of Islam and democracy for their personal vendatta. Musharraf however has the courage and capacity to face the odds. He is the only acceptable choice in sight to handle the worsening law and order and economic conditions. I have a personal liking for his person who is capable of putting the country on the right track and knows how to take these politicians and tribal leaders to task and how to face the unipolar world. I believe he will return and take the charge again to change the tide in his favour. I pray him Godspeed.

As a lay man i don't know much but in Musharaff's period the ordinary people of Pakistan were happy and the biggest reason that every body sleeps with his tummy full. These days the people hardly gets food only for one time. PPP Govt. is the biggest beggars amongst all and they also made the innocent people beggars by launching Benazir Income Support Program. Come on create jobs so we can live our life with dignity we don't need your money. I know i can write few hundred line more on it but i conclude that we want our basic rights and whosoever provide us we ll be a happy nation.

If democracy is the process of luring the salivating poor from they're straw huts to cast votes to someone they will never hear from again then we are a failed state already. What this country needs is a man with a iron fist and that is Musharraf. The biggest mistake he made was to come under political pressure and gave up his uniform.

    Any leader can improve the financial credibility of a nation by increasing the cost of living. And this exactly what the current government is doing. Musharraf who is being held guility for favoring the US in matters relating to the soverignity of the country, atleast during his predidency had the backing of the entire nation. If this is true then the same allegations should be attached to the present government for they too are doing exactly the same but with a begging bowl

    Aafia Siddiqui is a US citizen, holding a US passport. There is no way a Pakistani government can take hostage a US citizen (even if he/she is a dual national) if he/she has been asked for. And apparently, she was caught from Ghazni, Afghanistan, what was she doing there?

    Dear Sir,

    I am convinced that you had a unique opportunity in the first few years of your rule to set things right, clean up the system, cleanse it of corrupt players and make radical changes to the system i.e. Presidential rule, leaving assemblies to only legislative work thus ensuring only the educated and concerned participate in elections, empower and make judiciary independent etc.... Instead you got caught up with legitimizing and lengthening your rule. You perhaps justified to yourself each of the compromises that you made. You are an intelligent man so do you with hindsight regret not going down an alternate path?

    I would strongly deny the allegation President Musharraf had suffered heavy financial losses to the country, people should read pages from the history back in 80s and 90s how an absolute dictatorship and two so-called democracies had ruined the country. I still remember the figures how GDP, Foreign Currency Reserves, Literacy Rate, Foreign Direct Investments, Liquidity in the Market, Exports, Per Capita Income and all other economic growth indicators were raising upward.

    I also would like to solute President Musharraf for his brave action on Kargill Issue!

    The Questions which need to be answered, is it correct you have launched a new Political Party named "Pasdar-e-Pakistan"?

    If yes then when would you back to home?

    I was a big fan of yours till 2001. From a common man view point I summarise your 10 years as:
    You performed very well in the beginning 3 years. We the people of Pakistan could see "Change". After 9/11 and Elections your advisers gave you wrong advices. We saw the same Chaudries, Legharies and Maliks coming again. 9/11 shifted your focus towards International issues rather than National issues. NWFP was far from priorities. Now after 10 years we are facing the brunt. 7 days and 7 blasts is what we are receiving. Pakistan prospered but in "papers only". Billion of dollars aid came but went into selected pockets. Lal Masjid, Bugti killing, Emergency, Media curbs & Chaudry Iftikhar ouster were which made me dishearted. Shaukat Aziz was a puppet PM and dancing to the tunes of what was said to him. I admit some work done in the field of Higher Education, Science & Technology, Communication network but more could have been done and you could have ruled for another 10 years.

    Dear Honorable Mr Pervaiz Musharaf,

    It was our honor that we had you as our President for so long. We gained alot as a nation in your regime.

    Also i think you would have scored more if you were a little more strict towards the corrupts, talibans, maulvi's, and the political parties. We greatly admire your stance for Lal masjid but we believe that was not enough and the root cause of these terrorist should have been removed.

    We also support your action against the Chief Justice as he is no good to anyone except the lawyers and the PML N & Tehreek Insaaf.

    We 100 % support your stance against Bugti and his terrorism.

    We wish that you should have done more to finish off the culprits from the society as we all knew they will come back once you are gone.

    We Do not want you becoming just another politician by just entering the Pakistani Politics.

    As a nation we will keep waiting for yet another Musharaf !

    Dear Sir Musharraf ! Pakistani people, as you know well, have a great tolerance and can forgive anything , may that be a trivial misdemeanor or tremendous felony. I suggest you rather recommend you to "Say Sorry to the people of Pakistan for two things which induced hatred for you in their heart." i know for a elite man, like you, the most difficult thing is to say apologize as it shakes your ego but you know well its the requirement. And if not clear cut sorry , then atleast say a "Diplomatic Sorry" to the people . I assure you these people , if can forgive Nawaz then you're 700 times better than him. Please sir do it. I know you're not a "Kam-Zarf" man so you can ask this nation. My prayers with you. Come soon please.

    Dear Gen Musharraf,
    Altho U did a Kargil on India and after usurping power from democratically elected Nawaz Sharif and started as a hawkish ruler against India,the latter gave you recognition and some credibility in Pak and world-wide (ref Agra summit), You ultimately turned out to be best bet Indo-Pak relations ever had.A cease fire at borders,open ended trade even across the LOC and becoming milder towards your neigbours.Pak based militants across borders were much in check and Kashmir problem was slowly progressing towards a lasting 'settlement'.Then why did U spoil it all by letting so called 'jamhuriat' return,took self defeating 'pangha with CJ of Pak and finally give it all and run off from the country U defended as army man thru your life !

    Well if you dont know the things and reality why you are commenting, world is well aware that during his time economic was strong and index crossed 16000 first time in the history of nation. There are many achievements which he did, he was not looking power he was looking pakistan should stable and run as strong country, he was the person who introduced IT TECHNOLOGY first time and village wise , hadood ordinance and other many things.

    He was not corrupted like you , which you are throughing your smell. do criticism but right way which people can listen.

    His popularity is now again gained and nation is waiting when salar e millat annoucing his entrance in politics.

    He is not corrupted like zardari he is not lier like nawaz , deal no deal deal but 5 years deal not 10 years at last deal.

    Make sure in near future his supporters is not sleeping they knows what he did for pakistan what he can do more for us.

    I think GPM steered the Country through difficult times when we were given no option after the 9/11 fiasco. Given that Pakistan is not a self sufficient State, and depends largely on foriegn aid and assistance, and was on the verge of a default, any other option suggested also sounded ludicrous. So, he did what was good for Pakistan! But eventually the show got boring and the Pakistan and the rest of the world demanded change. So, for better or for worse, we have seen now that the change has not delivered anything so far!
    More than any millitary might Pakistan needs to gain ground econimcally. Our Country's reserves are less than what the facebook guy had in his account in 2009(a relatively slow year)! Let this Government or whachyoumaycallit, complete its terms, and then let the people of Pakistan decide in a fair election what they want to do with their Country then. Until then, we should try and see some results of how the ship steers under this Govt. After all, we have been through way too many experiments, and democracy should be given a chance! The people have spoken- PS: I am not a fan of the current Govt but would like to see an elected Govt complete its term in my life time!

    Logic is very simple if we try to understand. Democracy is not for Pakistan. In Pakistan more than 80% people are uneducated and they dont understand the strategic decisions. So these corrupted politicans give money to poor people to buy votes and after when they win in election, they give jobs to undeserving people so that they can earn back the money thru corruption. This is the cycle of Pakistan.

    Only one man came and stand in the way but unfortuantely, people of Pakistan doesnt understand the situation got themselves in trouble.

    Just check the FACTS and figure of Mr. Musharraf eara. Everything was going in right direction, but our enemies dont like this.

    Frankly, we should have Dictatorship with essence of democracy that way Mr. Musharraf was ruling until there is education is given to rest of poor 80% of the people.. After that we can have complete Democracy...

    Probably one of the most stable period or era was under President Musharraf for Pakistan which proves it not democracy but a firm hand is need to rule a country . Its high time south Asia realize the potential of a firm leadership which can make a difference to its progress and prosperity. Had USA backed him all the way, Pakistan would be on the progressive trend as Japan, S.Korea and Taiwan in its next phase -but unfortunately it was not to be as always, the west that chooses which country or economy is to succeed based on its own interests....so leaders like President Musharraf are pushed over with one cause or another and they keep the country struggling exactly where they want it !

    Hats off to you President Musharraf – possibly you are the only one who can restore Pakistan to its former condition and stability.

    Mr. Ex President,

    I wonder how do you sleep with dozens of innocent's blood on your hands. Especially the little children of Jamia Hafsa (Lal Masjid, if you forgot) that you massacred cold blooded. You didn't give then a chance even to cry. Their souls must be haunting you.

    And of course hundreds and thousands of innocent civilians that died because you dragged the American's war into Pakistan just to please them so that you remain in power for an extended period of time.

    I am sure these things are going to make your life difficult, mentally and physically.

    Don't you feel any regret for these murders that you carried out?

    This is a question which 99% of Pakistani's ask and must be answered.

    I agree with Mohammad Mubin that 60% (in my opinion 99%) Pakistani's want you to come back to Pakistan – but for different reasons. They want you back so that you could be hanged for Crimes Against Humanity.

    Dear Sir,

    You are the best thing that ever happened to Pakistan. The best. Sure you made some mistakes but who does not? I don't understand what made you make a deal with Ms. Bhutto now resulting in Mr. Zardari being the president ... Mr. Zardari being the President?? Can you believe and imagine that?? Where is the army now?? We have corrupt leaders, we have bomb blasts and we have no hope. There are no jobs in the market and personally i am just sick and tired of paying taxes (i belong to salaried class). Last year government imposed taxes on rehabilitation of IDP's?? I mean c'mon?? Now it’s our responsibility too?? I don’t understand anything sir. Why did you have to resign? You understand as well as any other literate Pakistani that democracy does not work for us. It never has and it never will unless we have a huge educated class who could vote sensibly. The politicians, our illiterate Pakistani population so called select's democratically are vicious landlord who owns people's souls. They themselves have no vision, are basically illiterate and have fake degrees. Every one knows this fact except for the Westerners who want to apply their ideals of democracy on us. They don’t know anything. They don’t know jack. In a country where only 0.5 % population is only categorized as having university degrees how can Westerners possibly assume that we can elect sensibly and that democracy can work. Democracy does not work for us especially the kind which allows a known criminal to become our President. How could you let this happen? How could you not think about us before resigning? I am sick and tired of paying additional taxes so that our politicians can afford nice bank balances, nice cars, nice bungalows where as we get nothing. I am sick an tired of paying for the landlords who own most of the agriculture lands but never pay taxes and they will also never be made to pay taxes because they are the ones making the laws. No one can our pain. No one. No one understands what we go through after looking at the dead bodies on television after every blast. No one understands the pain we go through when our friends in foreign countries refuse to come to Pakistan because of what is happening in the country. There is no ray of hope and there is no way out. I have no complaints pertaining to your regime… none whatsoever. Our GDP grew, our stock market flourished, we had foreign investment, property market blossomed, there were jobs and media was freed. But you should have fought for us. You should have.

    it is shameful and pathetic for every sensible and educated people of pakistan, when called and somewhere written President Zardari..

    pakistan contains majority of public which is innocent, illiterate, and extremely stupid(sorry to say), democracy, what is meaning of democracy, no one knows(if today in some moments if public knows the real meaning of democracy believe or not people of current government will be slauhtered by the public). so every time exteremly bad politicians(by the way politics is not the game of reasonable and capable people in pakistan).

    in todays government every capable and learned indiviual is away from country and no contribution from our well educated and learned people like attah ur rehman and so many, which are really an asset of pakistan.

    Pakistan and India got their indepence in 1947 and started their sovereign road at the same time. India is now a de-facto superpower
    vowed and respected, with a proud population despite apparent disparity and indemic pouvrety . Pakistan is a beggar nation, and unstable country with anything but legitimate governments at the service of the West, US in particular. Most of the so called global fight of terrorism started by the US is done by local despotic regimes such as the Musharraf and similar around the world. Pakistan had delivered most of the prisoners of Guantanamo Bay infamous prison and other prisons around the world where unhumane acts were perpetuated. One day, US and Western historians would rewrite history and would uncover how actions below norms and equivalent to
    genocides and humane atrocities were committed on the name of the great US, and Western nations and their peoles.
    Unfortunately, the US policy makers and successive administrations
    easily associate themelves with dictators and illegitimate regimes
    by shortsigntness and immediate policy gains. Peoples of the poor countries invaded by Western armies and subjected to the double
    oppressions of local dictators and their western masters have paid heavy prices and endured an immaginable hardships.
    It is never too late for courageous and lucid western politicians to stop the carnage and the supidity of the policies of guns and oppressions
    of those far away innocent peoples. Musharef and many before and after him are only poor pawns used and discarded for the needs of
    new imerialistic policies.

    An outstanding leader .Pres Musharraf despite the NRO ,one of the most controversial of his decisions ,stands head and shoulders above the trash of politicians now in power.One of them is universally known as Mr ten percent but because of Benazir sympathy vote became the pres.
    Nawaz sharif is presently supporting him.what an irony,he is the one who got him labelled as the most corrupt person in Pak.It is a different matter that Nawaz was involved in the ordering /diversion of Pres Musharraf's plane endangering the lives of hundreds of passengers.The pro Nawaz judges acquitted him because Nawaz helped their restoration.This will remain a tregedy of Pak Justice system.Meanwhile best wishes to Pres Musharraf and prayers.

    You are one of my favourite personality. I always discuss and support your idea of enlighten and moderation with my friends.

    My question is to you that USA is fighting near a decade in Afghanistan and Pakistan is also fighting against the terrorism and extremism, why they (Pak and USA) are not successing in this war.
    Is there any sign that both these countries are not serious to end the war?
    Or USA wish to control CHINA because CHINA is going to become almost super power.

    Dear Sir,
    Since you left, Pakistan has been in turmoil with daily blasts and bloodshed and Pakistan has become a game for the evil.
    You left at a very critical and delicate time – Pakistan needed stability and you were that stabilizing President-caretaker, leading the nation. You left very prematurely and that proved disasterous.
    Now more than ever, most sensible Pakistanis know that you will bring a very mature and sincere leadership to Pakistan. You probably should form a joint partnership with a couple of other parties namely with Imran Khan's party and possibly with MQM in oder to create a successful democracy for the Pakistani Nation.
    Good Luck and God Bless you.

    Respected Sir,
    Like others even i truely believe that u were the best leader Pakistan could have got but on the other hand i also think that u did make some mistakes.But it is quite evident that those were not in your intrest and you did it in the best interest of the country. i just want to ask you some simple questions which most of the supporters like me would want to know.

    1)Didnt you known at the time of resignation that soon Mr zardari would be the president of Pakistan?
    2)When dealing with benazir bhutto and signing NRO why didnt you take precautionary measures for something which happened to her?
    3)When do you intend to return and save the country yet again:)

    your reply will be highly appreciated. I am a 20 year old and in your tenure i got my faith back in my country but these people are taking it away. most of my friends have left Pakistan and gone abroad with an intention of never to come back and if an angel like you doesnt come back i will be leaving soon as well. do something as you know you can.

    I would like to ask Gen. Musharraf , whether he is aware that leaving aside the agriculture sector there will be scarcity of potable water in the country in the coming 5 years. A water reservoir takes at least 10 years to construct and he ruled over 8 years and in spite of having excellent minds in his team who could manipulate the stock market in no time what did he do in water and power sectors when neighboring countries were busy making 200 to 2000 Dams during this time . Not a single watt was added to the national grid and no effort was made to renew the electric transmission lines or the power distribution system which eats up half of the generated capacity in line losses. The country could face famine due to your criminal negligence for which a two years old government which was also selfishly installed by you to have a safe passage cannot be blamed.

    Musharaf takes off well back in 1999 but end up badly in 2008. As far as branding on fb is concerned, not a bad idea at all. Obama did use the technology as a premium tool for his marketing.

    Dear Sir, Just a simple question, instead of probing into corruption charges why can't we as a nation agree upon charging the culprits with the tax evasion. I once saw a movie based on a true story where Al Copone(Gangster) was put to task on the same grounds, Everyone should be investigated on the basis of income against expense and justify/establish their source, will surely help and save time.

    1. You discuss every problem openly while taking the whole nation in loop.
    2. Corruption was reletively lower in your time.
    3. Any thing against the solidarity and integrity of the country should not be tolerated.

    1. Now what is the use of reading books of brave Generals like Napolean. Please tell us Sir. Why you always chickned out during your golden era?
    2. Mr. Pervaiz Musharraf, why you removed the fear and respect of NUCLEAR Pakistan from the foreign countries. Why you used …to receive calls from their very junior staff. Why you degraded the nation? This is the biggest loss you have caused to the Nation..
    3. Mr. Pervaiz Musharraf: One of the examples, stated in your book is the Colin Powell’s threat over phone to you, after 9/11, incident. Look what is the stature of Pakistanis at the foreign air ports after your golden era. We understand even your ministers going with you were asked to remove their shoes. Is it true Sir. Why did’nt you cancel your tour to USA, as president of a nuclear Pakistan?
    4. Mr. Pervaiz Musharraf, Also please elucidate why you took decisions so detrimental to Pakistan, always under the the influence of fear, throughout your tenure? A person can not be a leader, if he is timid & coward. Fearlessness, does not mean absence of fear. Rather, the preference of certain more important things over fear. True leaders, never take decisions under the influence of fear.

    Pakistan is a very difficult country palgued with religious bigotry,corruption,feudalism,racism and a criminalized political system.Even when Musharraf was popular in Pakistan, I had my doubts about how popular he really was knowing the way people are in Pakistan, one mistake and all the evils of our society got mobilized to bring him down.There are only 2 kinds of people who win elections in Pakistan: religious bigots and corrupt people,he was neither and had to become unpopular one day.

    Hello Everybody,
    I have read all the comments abt this feature. First of all I would like to clarify that I am not from any party nor representing any school of thought. After reading all the comments i am able to distinguish between two type of people i.e; the supporters of President.Mushraf and the one who oppose him.
    Dears readers it is very to oppose or support anybody but you have to look into matters personally. Find out the reasons of being opposing or suporting anybody. And please try to avoid slang languages for any one specially one who is the representative or ever represented PAKISTAN.
    Our past i.e; Mushraf Government was more better than todays one. He was sincere to our HOMELAND but the people around him were not good. These are the people who joined and supported Mr.Mushraf for their personal needs and when they got all those things than they start gambling with the whole system..
    Mr. Mushraf had negotiated with very political parties before election and he was able to win the confidence of the political leader... the correlation of MOHTARMAH(Benazir) and MUSHARAF was decided to form and if that thing would happened than V not even think of the Heights which he could attained in the leadership of these two great leaders.
    Anyways this couldnt happened because of the forces which dont want to see PAKi to stand on its on feets and lead the world.
    So V the YOUTH of this nation has the responsibility to identify the leaders among us who can lead our nation. But this can only be done if V r sincere to our HOMELAND....R V?????
    Think about it........and than decide who is wrong and who is Right...

    Musharraf was not a leader in past , he was a dacoit who was came in power illegaly and uses state powers to press the political and human voices. I can remember easily the time when he took over the government and in that time there was a fear all where even it continues till 2007 . He is guilty also to promoting all fudals and gangsters all over the country. The all famous fudal families were again in power within the musharraf regime who were already enjoyed all previous government. Some newcomers were also came in power but they were also a new generation of fudal and i can call them new fudals. Who has doubt about the Altaf hussain and company that they were the Mafia , criminals, assassinators and butchers in Karachi and they were also in the category of Taliban in there past , but our musharraf sb legalised there occupation on Karachi and resulting there is no freedom of choice in the areas where MQM is strongly holding and even doing masacres like 12 May and our Musharraf sb claiming it his power at that noight. If anybody have doubt so he please know listen clearly that pakistan is an islamic state and his actual power is Islamic Ideology and it is also its fundamental , so you can see that pakistan has only wins only two wars in his history 1 is the war shich fought and win by pashtun mujahideen especialy by Afridi pathans in Kashmir and now which we call Azad Kashmir it is basicaly occupied by these and at that time there was no pakistani army at that time after partition , secondly again the Islamic mujahideens in Afghanistan during russian invasion and everybody knows that who were actualy fighting in the battlefields . so he takes our state on backfooting and know our state is fighting with his own fundamentals.

    Dear Sir- Pervez Musharraf

    I honestly believe that you were the best President/Chief Executive of Pakistan after Khan Liaquat Ali Khan, the unfortunate thing in Pakistan is that anyone who speaks the Truth and The Whole Truth in one go cannot succeed. Fortunately or unfortunately you possess these qualities. Although, Truth prevails but take times! The glaring examples are the politicians speaking in talk shows on the media. They have the guts and courage to tell lies nothing but lies and the immature media in Pakistan does not question them? Reasons known to all.
    My sincere advice is to remain outside Pakistan until the dust settles and people of Pakistan need you. Like they needed Ayub Khan but it was too late. The ignorant brothers of Punjab talk of Pakistan but their politics surrounds around their self interests and revenge. Comparisons of your government’s performance and the present one has started surfacing and it will not be too long when this movement will pick heat. My best wishes for you and your family.

    According to a small group of mislead people president violated the constitution. So I would like to add to their limited knowledge that constitution is part of a country and country is not a part of constitution and the most important clause of the constitution is to preserve the country. So if we want to preserve the country then even if we are violating the constitution and flouting the laws to preserve the country, still we are abiding by the constitution because we are following the most important clause of the constitution that is to preserve the country.

    Abraham Lincoln who was the president of America violated the constitution and flouted the laws because he wanted to preserve the country. At that time America was facing a civil war when he broke the constitution.

    One question might be arising in your minds that what situation we were faced with that president had to take such so called extra constitutional steps. We were facing civil disobedience at that time and some people wanted to make a parallel judicial government to seize the executive. So it was need of the hour to take strict action.

    Regarding that fake judicial movement, it was part of a greater conspiracy to overthrow Gen Musharraf's regime because he took stand on many important and sensitive national issues like A.Q Khan's nuclear proliferation case, Gawadar port's completion, IPI gas pipeline, Nuclear missile programme, relations with china and he was not suited to the foreign powers that’s why they decided to overthrow him and they succeeded. Like fake judicial movement was foreign funded too because there are around two lac lawyers seemed that the whole nation of sixteen crore consisted of lawyers. The people who participated in that movement were paid professional agitators who were only planted to destabilize Gen Musharraf’s government. Infact gen musharraf saved aq khan when all the foriegn powers were ready to pick him like aimal kansi...

    In all fairness, you are still the best ever leader that Pakistan had in decades and during the most difficult of times. We all have to remember the tremendous pressure and bullying you were under, from the world's greatest power who in turn was manipulated by the enemies of the Pakistani leadership. Under the most adverse conditions you handled and steered Pakistan very bravely and heroically. Therefore, you, with all your exeprience and intelligence should be best suited to lead Pakistan again during these very difficult times.
    God Bless.

You created the devolepment of infrastructure which jobs for poor people. You launched an operation for terrorist action in Lal Masjid and the traitor Akber Bugti, for which we are very grateful to you.You put for the trial C. J . P as you decided better. At the time when you were leaving presidency, we were hoping that no democratic govt have a power to keep and stay away from the problems which were left to be solved, since the present govt is unable to solve existing problems. I am sure if you were holding the president office we might not be suffering from the problems, but the position of Pakistan had been more good and srable."long live Pervez Musharaf".

    For the opponenets of Musharraf,

    The decisions and actions taken by Musharraf and his regime against Lal mosque terrorists and Akbar Bugti etc., were surely not to gain any personal gains but in the interest of Pakistan. This is enough to prove Musharraf's integrity and loyality to his motherland.

    As far as Aafia Siddiqui is concerned, she is a US citizen and her brother is still living in America enjoying all the privileges. America has every right to demand any country for expelling its citizens to US for whatever reasons; same way as Pakistan demanded US for expulsion of Admiral Mansoor ul Haq and now demanding Hamesh Khan of Punjab Bank (and he is due to arrive Pakistan).

    Lastly the reference against CJOP was perfectly as per Pakistan Constitution. The irony is Chaudhry Iftikhar (the so called Champion of Justice) has stopped the trial against himself and yet he has to prove himself innocent against the alleged charges labelled in the judicial reference.

    @ Saad Malik:

    You mentioned flouting the Constitution is not illegal and whatever this dictator has done is not a crime. Who will decide the time to flout the constitution? A single person who is incharge of your armed forces ? It seems to me that you don't mind when the laws are broken on the name of saving the country.So, whats the problem with other dictators who have done the same.After all they decided on their own to violate the constitution, suspend the judiciary and lock the people up on their own will. All this on the name of saving the country.You legitimizing every coup which took place in the past and praising every dictator who came along on the name of national security . Musharraf was no angel. He didn't have a legitimacy. falwed Referendum couldn't get him the legitimacy he wanted.He was a complete sell out.Shame on those who still defend his autocratic actions while in power.

    As a common citizen of Pakistan, what good a democracy of current sort, bring as there is huge mishandling of our economy, security and governance.
    A good leader in uniform or the criminal politicians who just wait in turn to rob us around the clock, keeping us busy with the judges issues, petroleum price, electricity shortage, bomb blasts and warn against terrorism.
    The man in the uniform gave us the best economic performance in decades. Gave the media the right to exist and grow. It was him who allowed today’s media masters who have today made a status symbol to criticize the same man.
    Please Mr. Musharaf, come back and get us out of this once more.

    Here is why I support Musharraf
    He brought stability and progress to Pakistan
    Pakistan's economy was the 3rd fastest growing economy after China & India in 2006.
    The IT industry, which was virtually non-existent seven years ago, has grown to be worth billion of which billion is export related. It registered a 50% growth. 55 foreign IT companies have already entered the market. Now the sector employed 90,000 professionals.
    Under Musharraf , Pakistan has been called the best place to invest in Asia
    He asked the world to promote Pakistan through investments –
    “That when you trade, when you enhance your trade and come for investment in Pakistan , you are contributing towards job creation. Therefore you are contributing towards unemployment reduction and poverty alleviation. And therefore, you are contributing in the long run to the root cause of striking against terrorism and extremism.” President Musharraf.
    He beleived in moving forward and always put Pakistan First in all his desicions

    "At this critical juncture, Pakistan needs the continuity of successful policies. Not a myopic hustle for individual powers.”President Musharraf.

    He is a national leader .and not a provincal one.He worked ceaselessly for the whole of Pakistan.

    The plight of Balochistan was highlighted and its grievances addressed for first time during President Musharraf’s rule.
    “I want Balochistan should be powered upward in every aspect so that it comes in competition with other Provinces"
    Many Firsts in the history of Balochistan:
    First time a General is made from Balochistan. Maximum number of roads constructed in Balochistan Coastal Highway from Karachi linking Gawadar with Rado Dero in Sind .
    Gwadar Port and Gwadar Project have been started.
    Water Project started in Quetta – Kutchi Canal irrigating Balochistan – Mirani Dam, etc.
    Khaleefah Oil Refinery.
    The recruitment of Balochs in Pakistan Army has been increased.

    He promoted the softer image of Pakistan and did his utmost to soften the image of the fundamentalists and Islamists Pakistan through the promotion of arts and cultural activities, opening of various T.V channels, freedom of Press and etc

    Musharrafs Pakistan
    “My vision of a strong, vibrant, stable and moderate Pakistan , playing an effective role in the world is based on my faith in the people of Pakistan . If we stay on the course, I am confident that the desired results can and will be achieved. Let us together make Pakistan a better place to live in and bequeath a stronger country to our current and future generations.’’

    He empowered the women.Thanks to his policies we see an increase in the number of women in the parliaments.
    17% seats reserved for women in Senate, National Assembly and Provincial Assemblies. Representation in local governments increased to a minimum 33% Women are at liberty to contest elections on general seats as well.

    Promotion of Information Technology and Telecom Sector which is providing Pakistan with several thousand jobs every year to the young unemployed engineering and electronic graduates. Explosion of Internet and easy and affordable access to telecommunication. Obviously had he not invited foreign investment we would be lagging behind.
    He freed the media and the number of tv channels which came into being are a witness to this.what distinguishes him from other leaders is that he has the courage to admit his failures and listen to criticisms in public forums by media and other so called experts.
    Under Musharraf , Pakistan has been called the best place to invest in Asia
    Musharraf symbolises the hope for a bright future.For me it means not to give up on my beautiful land whatever the odds and whatever it takes.

    “We need to continue developing the economic opportunity that will give these young people the hope and encouragement to persuade them not to fall pry to extremist rhetoric, but rather work productively towards a future, that will benefit them and Pakistan as a whole.”
    He beleived in moving forward and always put Pakistan First in all his desicions

    When I was youg about 20 years ago, I was admired with South Korean bloodless coup by Mr. Chun Doo-hwan and his democratic policy.

    We had Great Pervez Musharraf and we did not value him and now each Pakistani is in a state of mess , because we look for angel to come and rule which never happened After Quaid, Musharraf was the last hope until some miracle occurs His honesty and sincerity was his crime so may call Mr. pervez musharraf a criminal , He BOUGHT the plot in ISLAMABAD didn’t get it for free , enjoyed the similar electricity tarrif which was already on there , Appointed the CJ who became famous , Got rid of IMF , Got rid of two corrupt leaders, Stressed over elections in political parties , not a single corruption case could be raised against him , despite all the hatred created by Media, Most importantly tried his best to give voice to the people by introducing unprecedented free Media , showed tolerance against LAL masjid for more than 4 months , but eventually had to deal with stubborn Maulvis , because of the mounting pressure by media , politicians . YES he made mistakes , like we all do but name who didn’t , Sher afgan niazi is also not liked by most of us , whereas if investigated he is an honest person and says only what is stated in Constitution but look at ourselves how he is disliked , when I myself found the truth About Mr Afgan I was surprised how his people like him.
    I suppose the constitution we have is incapable and full of flaws or the Leaders have made it so, moreover we are not honest and fall prey to propaganda without bothering to seek the truth .No person should be allowed to lead the party forever , Every part must have fair elections & no one should be allowed to become PM or Leader of the party for more than two terms , and Education must be the same regardless of poor and rich with a reviewed syllabus designed accordingly to our traditions and religion. PM and other major position holders must not be allowed to go abroad after wards so that threy should realize that it is our homeland and we have to live here , then probably they will try to develop this country . I wish my fellow countrymen could understand what this country really needs .Long live my country .

    Gen. Musharraf, my question is as follows.

    Pakistani establishment has consistently accused India of human-rights violations in and exploitation of Kashmir. It asserts that Kashmiri militants are "freedom fighters" that are responding to India's evil designs and seek to free Kashmir from "Indian Tyranny". However, the insurgencies in Kashmir only started to occur in the late 80s', more than a decade after the Simla Agreement. Where were the freedom fighters before 1972? Would you accuse India of tyranny only after 1972? Was it treating Kashmir fairly before? If yes, can it not again?

    Pervez Musharraf used the the pretense of trying to match the martial strength of the Taliban as a political tool to amass wealth (from the U.S and some European countries) for himself and weaken the democratic values of the nation. The political/Security instability of Pakistan is the doing of Pervez Musharraf!
    He placed the nation in political dilemma before leaving office. He is a still free man, a free man who should have been probed if Pakistan had regained political/security stability till date.

    What effect will his wishes have on the country's instability which he created/masterminded?

    Afreen Baig and Mirza Rohail B.

    [Who have painstakingly documented it on their blogspot ]

    It is a fact- sheet - based on track-record and serves as a testimony to the "Musharraf Era" as the History of His Era.

    As supporters of Pervez Musharraf... we honor his Leadership through nine of the most difficult years in Pakistan's history.

    Economic Report by Mirza Rohail B
    http://economicpakistan.wordpress.com

    TODAY MUSHARRAF IS THE LEADER THE WORLD LISTENS TO – WORKING FOR PAKISTAN NOT A POSITION!

    PRESIDENT MUSHARRAF WILL ALWAYS BE A LEADER! ALREADY PLAYING A ROLE.

    IF PAKISTANI'S NEED HIM! THEN THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO REQUEST HIM TO COME BACK AND PLAY A ROLE.

    MUSHARRAF IS 'A LEADER' THE WORLD RECOGNIZES & WHEN HE SPEAKS THEY LISTEN!

    TODAY HE IS A HISTORICAL LEADER WHO WILL ALWAYS WORK FOR PAKISTAN

    HE HAS STARTED A LECTURE CIRCUIT TO CLEAR WRONG PERCEPTIONS ABOUT HIMSELF- PAKISTAN ITS ARMED FORCES AND THE ISI ! AND IS DOING A GREAT JOB TO DEFEND THE INTEREST OF PAKISTAN.

    We Wish him God speed [Ameen]

    A recap of Events leading to President Musharraf's Govt:
    ------
    The 1990’s was a lost decade for Pakistan, mismanagement at its helm and corruption rampant.

    Formation of failed policies, coupled with sheer incompetence and lack of commitment, kept deteriorating the economy of the fragile Country.

    Benazir’s era was further characterized by ungoverned manipulation and personal extravagance of her husband Zardari.

    By 1999, not only were the $10 billion Foreign Reserves misspent without any accountability, but it also shattered the confidence of our nation. Expatriate Pakistanis kept a cautious outlook of the situation and held their foreign reserves back.

    Nawaz Sharif and People’s Party often lament that during their tenures US and IMF Aid was suspended; and that President Musharraf’s government received huge aid after 9/11 to overcome the economic problems.

    To set the record correct, USA and IMF aid was suspended only after the Nuclear Atomic blasts of May 1998, but that too was RESUMED later that year in November, a week before Nawaz met President Clinton in USA.

    Before May 1998, the governments of Nawaz Sharif and Benazir Bhutto received worldwide aid and assistance from USA, IMF, OPEC, European countries, ODA & OOF bilateral agreements and World Bank.

    The inheritance of the ailing economy that took place after October 1999 was not an easy task for the leadership of President Musharraf. Pakistan needed quick reforms, resource allocation, stabilization of policies and alluring back the Foreign Reserves and Foreign Direct Investment.

    A misperception persists within some critics that attribute completely the turning around of Pakistan’s economy to: US aid or 9/11. Therefore, let it be clarified that major economic indicators had improved before 9/11, and the economy had already started showing signs of recovery and revival.

    Therefore, the entire credit of stabilizing Pakistan’s economy goes to the visionary decisions, sustained macro-economic policies and financial reforms of President Musharraf and the Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz.

    These also highlight their good intentions and ultimate honesty. Their sense of duty towards the country, honesty and the genuine resolve to address the problems does not arise from 9/11. Unlike their predecessors who swept problems under the carpet.

    These figures by all means indicate the strength of Pakistan’s booming economy and establish the FACT that Pakistan is no more dependent upon US or foreign aid. Pakistan’s economy has managed to wriggle out of their clutches.

    As a military state with an active army, what was the main reason why the western region (Waziristan) could not be controlled under your leadership? What were the difficulties for not being able to develop and mange this region?

    I am an Indian. I would like to ask the respected Mr. ex president will Pakistan continue its proxy war against India in order to dismantle the concept of India or will it start working on strengthening up its economy by having a productive and mutual dialogue with Indian government? India is very visibly emerging as one of the world's leading economies and I think Pakistan should make use of this opportunity to tie up with India in ways by which it can improve its economic position. This move can give employment to a lot of Pakistanis and solve its poverty problem to an extent and improve the relations to a large extent. I think this will not happen until Pakistan stops the proxy war.

    I would liek to say to Kiran Prakash that alone Pakistan is not doing proxy war it is happeneing from both ends but unfortunately India is nto accepting. It demands only to Pakistan to stop it, how is it possible because we all know what are the main reasons? First of all till today India could not digest the creation of Pakistan and seondly Kashmir.

    Yes India is trying to emerging in a one of the leading economies but for that PEACE in the region is vital and if you consider yourself a big power oremerging big power then surely you have to show your big heart and accept Pakistan and then see forward.

    I assure you we Pakistanis are big heart people we are ready to work for the PEACE of whole region and we know very well that we are at the hub for many countries for import & exports etc and our role is very important in the region, sorry to say you cannot ignore or bypass us.

    So my dear in my point of view first you have to accept our existance then every thing may lead towards prosperity of region not only properity of 2 countries.

    dear sir, for you i have 2 questions.

    1 when benazir bhutto was killed everybody blamed the taliban. I would like to know why they would kill her? why not kill you or nawaz sharif? they tried to kill you before so why not again. they consider you as their enemy, you helped the usa invade afghanistan. The only one who benefited from her death is asif "10%" zardari. Why could he not be a suspect?

    2 I do consider you as a good leader even though you supported the usa. There is something i dont understand. We now have a so called democratically chosen president that is known as mr 10%, he does not do any thing good but is not criticised. You on the other hand were a general and did something good for our country but were criticised for being a general. How is this possible? Do you think it is time for you to come back? or Do you think there will be a new coup?

Our beloved leader, Pervez Musharraf should stay in London for the time being. The time is not far off when he will be in Pakistan Insha Allah with a bang.

    Through Khushnood Ali Khan (Nov. 1999) Medina warned for his jail

But the people did not vote for him and now they want him back. All those should be ashamed of themselves who did not vote for him. He is loyal and honest he left with dignity and accepted defeat. It was the most fair election ever held in Pakistan and the reason was Musharraff. He will come back ...... he is only waiting for the right time and that time is not too far.

    Pakistan has never seen democracy. It has transited between civil and military rules. Now we have civil rule very different from democracy. Musharraf is capable, intelligent, experienced in governance, deeply patriotic and above all very honest. Pakistan badly needs him at the helm of affairs now more than ever. Paradoxically, he is the only hope for democracy in this country. He is not a feudal thats why he knows the value of public opinion and strove to put in place true democratic local governments.
    West is too enamored by platitudes and slogans of democracy little knowing how votes are purchased in Pakistan and India, how the caste system works and the clans vote for each other. Musharraf understands it all. Those who love Pakistan and those who wish to see this world rid of terrorism should lend full support and throw all weight behind Musharraf, otherwise, sadly there is hardly any hope.

What would you do to transform Pakistan from present disasters to a successful state. Most importantly what would you do for the common citizens of Pakisitan and wihtout compromising Pakistan's interests with the West. Also keeping good relations with them.

    surely we can defend nov 3rd steps

    According to a small group of mislead people president violated the constitution. So I would like to add to their limited knowledge that constitution is part of a country and country is not a part of constitution and the most important clause of the constitution is to preserve the country. So if we want to preserve the country then even if we are violating the constitution and flouting the laws to preserve the country, still we are abiding by the constitution because we are following the most important clause of the constitution that is to preserve the country.

    Abraham Lincoln who was the 16th president of America violated the constitution and flouted the laws because he wanted to preserve the country. At that time America was facing a civil war when he broke the constitution.

    One question might be arising in your minds that what situation we were faced with that president had to take such so called extra constitutional steps. We were facing civil disobedience at that time and some people wanted to make a parallel judicial government to seize the executive. So it was need of the hour to take strict action.

    Regarding that fake judicial movement, it was part of a greater conspiracy to overthrow Gen Musharraf's regime because he took stand on many important and sensitive national issues like A.Q Khan's nuclear proliferation case, Gawadar port's completion, IPI gas pipeline, Nuclear missile programme, relations with china and he was not suited to the foreign powers that’s why they decided to overthrow him and they succeeded. Like fake judicial movement was foreign funded too because there are around two lac lawyers seemed that the whole nation of sixteen crore consisted of lawyers. The people who participated in that movement were paid professional agitators who were only planted to destabilize Gen Musharraf’s government. Infact gen musharraf saved aq khan when all the foriegn powers were ready to pick him like aimal kansi...

    I don't Know whether he was gr8 or not but we as paksitani citizens saw a lot of economic activity during his time. How he created is really not that important, people are more interested to know whether they are getting their necessaties with ease or not i.e. jobs,daily usage items, health facilities and peace ofcourse.
    His last year went bad. People shouldn't multiply his 7 years with zero just for the sake of bad performance in last months of his time.

But I have one question that he was having immense power that time then why didn’t he build a single DAM? I think he was the only man who can handle the Kala Bagh dam issue. And this government is careless about welfare of the people and taken no step to improve Pakistan economically.

    Dear Mr. Musharraf,

    I understand the frustration Pakistani nations is going through whether they live in Pakistan or abroad. They feel deceived but I think the nation of Pakistan does not know what do they want. Every time they select a candidate with a heavy mandate with many hopes that this time the system will be changed and the poor/middle class people will have equal access to prosperity. They did the same during your reign, I know it was not your fault that all the things did not move the way you wanted because you were dealing internal and external issues. I can not suggest anything other than please do not do what Banazeer Butto did. It was a courageous act that she went back but what was the outcome. Please stay in UK as long as it is needed.

    MQM has been developing, and strengthening their party from UK why can't it be done for APML. I believe your life is precious for the future of the Pakistan. I also believe you are more open than any other leader in Pakistan. Your availability to us make you unique among other Pakistani leaders.

    Stop Blaming Musharraf:

    I want to caution moderate Pakistan to stop judging musharraf harshly.

    Security provides economic stability which is the way forward for Pakistan. The progress made economicly between 1999-2007 has been reversed t...o the 1970's.

    The current e...xtremism is being blamed on musharraf, for God sake, take hold of facts, this extemism is the result of bad policies over 60 decades. The final blow was the AfghanéRussian war, and kashmir. Musharraf did not create those condictions.

    Extremism is the result of the vacum created by these two wars, that were being fought in our back yard for the last 30 years.

    The war torn Afghanistan was further damaged by the mujaheedeen who remained there, and brought their solution to the troubled people.

    It had to surface, the frightening element is that these extremist ideas use Islam to recruit man power. If we take out the word Islam from their agendas, no one would even listen, they would be stripped naked, and be exposed as mere murdering dacoits, as they really are.

    Friends remain calm, so you can see the great danger.

    No country can sustain itself today without, investor confidence. Pakistanis are not back benchers, and have always played a frontline role no matter where. In order to use this potential, we need to become part of the world comity.

    Today Musharraf is the only pakistani leader with an international mandate, we need to realise it, and use it to save our country from the grasp of dacoits.

    Mr Musharaf

    First of all I would like to ask you. You were not suppose to be a Army General because you were junior and ineperience general that time.

    General Ali Kuli khan was most senior General that time. And you were 3 times junior from him. you superseeded him. Ex. Prime Minister Nawaz sharif promoted you as a general because he thought what he will say you will do.

    Ok thats fine, because this is Pakistan Any thing can happens, very crupt, any body can take short cut by force and by money.

    Once you have taken President seat by force then why you attacked Red Mosque and killed innocent people. I am agree they were terrorist but you could catch them by many ways.

    You could use taser gun, tear gases, Cold or Hot Pressure water, or laughing gases many many more ways.

    Why you sent more than 40 judges home because they challenge you?

    I think You had to handover power to political parties in 2004-2005. By that way you could be a Pakistani Hero. And now people of pakistan call you zero.
