Musharraf says plans return to Pakistan, politics

Published

on

WASHINGTON — Pakistan’s former military ruler Pervez Musharraf said he planned to return from exile and re-enter politics, and did not rule out a new bid for the presidency.

Musharraf, who has mostly lived in London since losing power following 2008 elections, visited Washington this week and met quietly with prominent Pakistanis at a ritzy hotel to discuss his future plans.

In an interview with CNN, Musharraf said he intended to return to politics, although he was coy when asked about the time-frame.

“I certainly am planning to go back to Pakistan and also join politics. The question already of whether I am running for president or prime minister will be seen later,” he said.

Officials in Pakistan earlier said Musharraf had applied to register a new party with electoral authorities, setting the stage for a political comeback.

But Musharraf could face a criminal trial if he returns to Pakistan for detaining judges in 2007 as he attempted to cling to power.

Musharraf is also wanted for questioning over allegations in a UN-led investigation that he could have done more to prevent the December 2007 assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

Musharraf disagreed with the UN report, saying, “I think all the security was provided” to Bhutto.

“In fact, it was me who warned her about the threat to her,” Musharraf said.

Musharraf said he had previously stopped Bhutto from going to the venue where she was later killed by Islamic extremist.

“A lot of political aspersions were cast on me that her movements are being restricted. But she decided to go again,” Musharraf said.

Bhutto’s widower, Asif Ali Zardari, replaced Musharraf as president in 2008. Musharraf could face formidable odds in any return to politics to match the political machinery of Zardari and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

    Musharraf shall Never RETURN — Kindly Mark & Register the SAME — I thought all Pakistanis were smart — Seems like Pakistani Politicians have their own “MENTAL & PHYSICAL RETARDATION” Side — as well — I now have the right to call Pakistani Politicians for IDIOTS – Period!

    *V, C –Aur-H-m = Vietnam, Cambodia Aur Hoch-man

    *Danista – Kee Hein – RELEASE = Deliberately Release the Leakages

    *Dohraee Jaa Rahee = The History of Vietnam & Cambodia is just being repeated – as my beloved Rtd. Gen. Hameed Gul pointed out & indicated – I am Positive & stamping to his Guess.

    *Koee Nahee Hairan = This is mine own Curiosity —– that—– why any Pakistani is not Raising & ASKING to this VITAL plus CRUCIAL Question that there is no any Report Leakage Regarding Benazir Bhutto Brutal Killing?

    *Benazir Sha-eeeeeee-eeed Kay QATAL Ka Koee Zikar Nahee = It is supposed ahead Wiki-leaks disclose also the Secret Information of Benazir Brutal Murder then I would STATE — Yes this is Genuinely Disclosed otherwise this would be an another Drama which was played EARLIER in 60s – Richard Nixon as he wished to EXIT from Vietnam badly —But CIA & others Did NOT Want. The same formula & drama is being staged here-at Afghanistan Just to Exit American Forces Permanently.

    *Washing the Place within Ten Minutes & NO – Postmortem = As & when Benazir was brutally Killed — just right after within even less than “Ten Minutes” the Entire Place was WASHED just IMAGINE as I Fully STRESSED within less than —“TEN MINUTES”— & why POSTMORTEM was not Placed who ordered not to do the same? — THESE are the Questions still pending! — The same are going to Resolve — Well in Advance I’m going to INCORPORATE some NAMES e.g. Dick Cheney, Pervaiz Musharraf & some other ACTIVE Army Generals of that Particular Period & their respective Subordinates are badly involved but failed try to divert the attention once again towards TALIBAN. According to Taliban Spokesman AS USUAL — the Taliban always Made Fun of Pakistani Establishment — it is supposed — If we Killed Benazir Bhutto — then — We had Passed the Order Not to do the Post-Mort-em & our LOYALIST – Our Own Men-POWER – Washed the Entire Place — Not to collect any EVIDENCE & NOT to enable Pakistani Authorities to Resolve Benazir Murder – One of Biggest – Joke of Pakistani Criminal History.

Afghanistan Protests Over Florida Quran Burning Enter Third Day

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan protests against the burning of a Quran in Florida entered a third day with a demonstrations in the south and east Sunday, while the Taliban called on people to rise up, blaming government forces for any violence.

The desecration at a small U.S. church has outraged Muslims worldwide, and in Afghanistan many of the demonstrations have turned into deadly riots. Protests in the north and south in recent days have killed 20 people.

In southern Kandahar city on Sunday, hundreds took to the streets for the second day in a row, and hospital officials said 20 people were hurt in skirmishes between police and demonstrators. On Saturday, nine people were killed and 80 injured when a protest turned into a riot.

At least two wounded police officers and 18 civilians had been brought into city hospitals, said Qayum Pokhla the provincial health director.

A morning protest in Jalalabad city was peaceful, with hundreds of people blocking a main highway for three hours, shouting for U.S. troops to leave and burning an effigy of President Barack Obama before dispersing, according to an Associated Press photographer at the scene.

A similar protest in eastern Parwan province blocked a main highway with burning tires for about an hour, with more than 1,000 people protesting against the desecration of the Quran, said provincial police chief Sher Ahmad Maladani. He said there was no violence.

The violence started Friday when demonstrators stormed a U.N. compound in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, killing 11 people including seven foreign U.N. employees.

The Taliban said in a statement emailed to media outlets that the U.S. and other Western countries have wrongly excused the burning a Quran by the pastor of a Florida church on March 20 as freedom of speech and that Afghans “cannot accept this un-Islamic act.”

NATO officials re-iterated their condemnation of the Quran burning in an apparent attempt to quell the rising anger.
