What happened to Pervez Musharraf?

Special Court in Islamabad today announced the death penalty to General (retd) Pervez Musharraf in the high treason case. This special court was formed by former Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif on account of violating article 6 of the Constitution of Pakistan.

“Pervez Musharraf has been found guilty of Article 6 for violation of the constitution of Pakistan,” government law officer Salman Nadeem said.

“Any person who abrogates or subverts or suspends or hold in abeyance, or attempts or conspires to abrogate or subvert or suspend or hold in abeyance the Constitution by use of force or show force or by any other unconstitutional means shall be guilty of high treason,” states Article 6 of the Constitution.

This is the first time in the history of Pakistan where a former Army Chief is facing a death sentence on violation of article 6. Previously General Zia dismissed the National and Provincial assemblies in 1977. Former Army Chief General Pervaiz Musharraf was asked to appear in front of trial court 6 times where he didn’t show up on any single occasion.

Pakistan Tehreek Insaf led by Imran Khan filed 3 petitions earlier this morning in order to delay the verdict. This is how the Court reacted over the stance of govt.

“Submitting such a request after three and a half years means the government doesn’t have the right intentions. Today the case was set for final arguments and now new petitions have been submitted,” remarked Justice Karim.

Pervaiz Musharaf is widely considered as one of the most controversial figures in the history of Pakistan. He was the man behind the Kargil war that killed all possibilities of long term peace between India and Pakistan. His wrong policies during the war on terror were so catastrophic that Pakistan is still paying the heavy price of it. The problem of Balochistan started during his tenure where he killed Nawab Akbar Bugti (Sardar of Bugti tribe and most respected name in Balochistan) during the military operation in 2006 that further deteriorated the situation. Despite too much criticism, I’m adamant that he opened the door for many multinational companies and strengthened the telecommunication sector in Pakistan. He was about to tie with Atal Bihari Vajpayee on the historic deal over Kashmir dispute which collapsed due to excessive pressure from military and security agencies of Pakistan.

There are mixed reactions amongst Pakistani’s . I have come across many tweets where many Pakistanis are extremely happy and crediting Court for such a brave and historic verdict. On the other side there are some people who think this verdict will create tension between military and Court which may not be good sign for Pakistan in current circumstances.

Considering Pervaiz Musharaf recent health condition which is worsening, this death penalty is unlikely to happen. Despite too much political and military pressure, the Judiciary of Pakistan must be acknowledged for this historic verdict. I’m pretty hopeful this verdict will lay the foundation stone for the long term stability of democratic values in Pakistan.

A pure evil, fooling the innocent Pakistani public, angel of hate, and look at his chest full of medals, which war did he win???????

Corrupt regimes. gloated with power, pure evil inside out, made poor countries destitute, the root cause of the downfall of South Asia. Nehrus/Gandhis in India, these Niazis, Bhuttos and Mr. 10 percent, and in Pakistan, played havoc with the poor masses.

It is payback time, and I hope we all learn from all this and hope to rebuild a strong South Asia, which is way behind in progress.

Now we all know, Bombs, Military, Empty Threats of Nuclear wars, and all the other nonsense has no place in the modern world.

Look around even the very small countries in southeast Asia made headway, we in South Asia are rotting in the hate.

Mr. Pervez Musharraf, may not see the noose like Mr. Bhutto, and he may not that lucky to shit/pee in his pants, before seeing the noose.

He may expire natural death, and die peacefully, in his bed with his family holding his hand.

Let us pray for a restful end to this evil, two or multifaced evil.

May God rest his soul in peace, and a new era of peace dawns on South Asia.

Look at his medals on his chest, I shake my head in disbelief, which war and what bravery he had won.
