The day interim government came into being , Musharraf landed in Pakistan after fiver years of self exile.Some say it is part of deal made between last ruling group and him.Few are claiming that he was assured by foreign friends that he would be safe and alive in Pakistan etc.
Surely he taken good decision to land in Karachi.Karachi his hometown, the town of his lovers on ethnic basis, a city of MQM, whom got extra ordinary support from him shown him cold response up to to level of humiliation and commando was packed to sent to capital city where already active cases of last 5 years come in action.Ex royal highness was immediately taken under state custody so that no ill will elements try to harm his little soul.Another surprising scene is seen on his door to door court visits that group of indeed friends of good times are absent from scene. Marvi Memon and his father, chaudry brothers, chaudry Fawad, and many m0re have already changed their nesting grounds long time ago but the way MQM members whom he always declared his closed ally on ethnic basis ,barrister Saif and Amaeer Maqam like die hard followers are absent from scene.
One should salute to courage of Dr Amjad and Raza Qasoori who in hostile environment of charred crowds and a serious threat from Lal mosque brigade are still bound to their friend.Another interesting feature is being seen that in social media expected biased campaign against judiciary has been floated for increasing moral and courage of perplexed leader.These e -men are trying hard to show that this dictator is innocent, sincere to his nation but trapped by wrong people.Along with throwing mud to judiciary these faceless fellows try to create ethnic differences for gathering the lost support of coward chief of Pakistan army.Lets summaries the major event that brought Musharraf in such unsolved puzzle of judicial complications.
Musharraf rose to national prominence after being appointed a four-star general in October 1998 by the Punjabi PM Nawaz shairf by superseding many Punjabi and Pukhtoon generals.
It was an armed conflict between India and Pakistan that took place between May and July 1999 in the Kargil district of Kashmir.The war is one of the most recent examples of high altitude war fare in toughest mountain terrain, which posed significant threat for the combating sides.Since 1971, it was also the only instance of direct war between two states having provisions of nuclear arms. India had conducted its first successful test in 1974 but Pakistan, which had been developing its nuclear capability in secret since around the same time, conducted its first known tests in 1998 when Musharraf was just taken over command of army.
Former prime minister Benazir Bhutto had already confessed that t Pervez Musharraf had brought the Kargil plan to her when she was prime minister and he was the director general of Military Operations.
“Kargil was an absolute disaster,” Benazir said in an interview with the Third Eye Television.
“I asked Gen Musharraf what would happen after the execution of his plan. He said he would hoist the flag of Pakistan atop the Srinagar Assembly. I vetoed the plan because I knew we would have to surrender the territory when it would come to the international community and that’s exactly what happened.”
1999 Pakistani coupe d’etait
General Musharraf who organized the military coup against sharif on Oct 12 1999 was seeking to use the trial to try legitimize his rule.He alleged that Sharif ordered his plane returning from an official visits to Sri lanka to be diverted from Karachi airport to Nawabshah airport in order to facilitate arrest.Musharraf strongly claimed that the plane which was running low on fuel, would have crashed killing him and 200 passengers if it had not landed at Karachi. Sharif, who has been in military custody since the coup, had denied the charges. Others accused include Sharif’s brother and former Chief Minister of Punjab Province, Shahbaz Sharif, ex-chief of the disbanded Anti-corruption Bureau, Saifor Rehman, and ex-adviser on Sindh Affairs, Ghous Ali Shah. One of the accused, former chief of Civil Aviation Authority, Aminuddin Chaudry, is to give evidence against Sharif and in return has received a pardon.
On the other hand Sharif accused the military ruler of carrying out a “personal vendetta” against him and his family and branded the coup as “totally extra-constitutional”. “The military coup was in progress while the plane was still in air and the whole story of plane hijacking is cooked up to dramatize the incident to justify the coup,” he said. “There is no doubt that I did say very clearly and categorically that the plane should land at the Karachi airport.”
When asked by the Time correspondent in the courtroom if he had ordered the hijacking, Sharif replied: “You hijack a plane with a gun. It is the democratically elected government, which has been hijacked. Parliament has been hijacked…. Who says plane hijacking? There was no hijacking.”
He flew from Pakistan early yesterday after General Pervez Musharraf’s government unexpectedly announced that his life sentence had been commuted. He had been in jail since the military coup 14 months ago, convicted of kidnapping, hijacking and corruption.
He landed in Jeddah yesterday afternoon in a private jet belonging to the Saudi royal family. He was accompanied by 18 members of his family, including his wife Kulsoom, his three children and his elderly parents.
Confessions of close allies of general Pervaiz Musharraf
Referring to an interview published on 24th February 2008 in The News, a daily English newspaper of Pakistan, Maj Gen Ehtesham Zamir, the head of the ISI’s political cell in 2002, admitted manipulating the last elections at the behest of President Musharraf and termed the defeat of the King’s party, the PML-Q, this time ‘a reaction of the unnatural dispensation (installed in 2002).’ He categorically emphasized that the ISI together with the NAB was instrumental in pressing the lawmakers to join the pro-Musharraf camp to form the government to support his stay in power. Looking down back into the memory lane and recalling his blunders which, he admitted, had pushed the country back instead of taking it forward, Zamir felt ashamed of his role and conduct. He was massively embarrassed because he was the one who negotiated, coerced and did all the dirty work for PML(Q) on orders of Gen Musharraf.
The National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO)
It was a controversial ordinance issued by the General Musharraf, on 5 October 2007. It granted amnesty to politicians, political workers and bureaucrats who were accused of corruption, embezzlement money laundering murder and terrorism between 1 January 1986, and 12 October 1999, the time between two states of martial law in Pakistan. It was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of Pakistan on 16 December 2009, throwing the country into a political crisis.
Selected NRO beneficiaries include: Asif Zardari, Benazir Bhutto,Altaf hussain,Fazlurehman,Nisar Khuro, Rehman Malik,Hussain Haqqani,Nawaz khokar,Chuadry Ahmed Mukthar,Jehangir Badar,Salman Farooqi,Siraj Shamsudin,Syed mohamed Ali Shah,Brig Imtiaz,Farooq Siittar,Saleem Sezad,Babar Ghouri and several Bureaucrats and politicians too.
So now Musharraf is here .Having complete VIP security as per his demand, getting free publicity round the clock on papers and electronic media and social websites without doing any kind of effort.He came in when no politicians are in position to take stand against him few due to foreign pressures and rest are busy in election campaigns.His lawyers are trying hard to create self pity situation showing his pain and griefs to all world and still desperately waiting for public response that has always been claimed by Musharraf on public forums and found in social network forums too. Musharraf is surely expecting same kind of civic agitation as world had seen at the time of deposed Judge Ch Ifitikahr.So for all his ghost followers, It is right time to become real for him, a suitable field is there, their horse is ready to gallop, dummy interim government wont take serious action, army can’t dare to stop their ex COAS for his political juggling so only need is his supporters on whom trust he is back to take control of executive office.We wish best of luck for all of them and ready to help them through all civilized ways to give guide lines how to prove their association with their runaway General.
