Pervez Musharraf has died

Postby Neu California » Sun Feb 05, 2023 12:52 am

The BBC wrote:Pakistan's former president General Pervez Musharraf, who seized power in a coup in 1999, has died aged 79.

The former leader - who was president between 2001 and 2008 - died after a long illness, a statement from the country's army said.

He had survived numerous assassination attempts, and found himself on the front line of the struggle between militant Islamists and the West.

He supported the US "war on terror" after 9/11 despite domestic opposition.

In 2008 he suffered defeat in the polls and left the country six months later.

When he returned in 2013 to try to contest the election, he was arrested and barred from standing. He was charged with high treason and was sentenced to death in absentia only for the decision to be overturned less than a month later.

He left Pakistan for Dubai in 2016 to seek medical treatment and had been living in exile in the country ever since.

Obituary: Pervez Musharraf
In the statement confirming the death, the military said it expressed its "heartfelt condolences" and added: "May Allah bless the departed soul and give strength to bereaved family."

Pakistan's President Arif Ali prayed "for eternal rest of the departed soul and courage to the bereaved family to bear this loss", his office said in a statement cited by AFP news agency.

He leaves behind a complicated legacy. How do you think future generations will see him?

Me, I think he'll be largely associated with the War on Terror, with all the good and bad that comes with that, and will be seen in a very mixed light.

Not sure if I should feel sorry for a coup leader who suspended the Pakistani Constitution in 2007 and a neoliberal who banned trade unions and greatly increased economic inequality.

Kudos for being a Pakistani leader who somehow managed to die of natural causes rather than being assassinated. That's quite a feat.

He ruined a ruined country.
I can't wait for all the neocons to rush in defending him because "Packistayn is duh graytest alliye of Murica' in the middle east" without knowing anything about it's history and the king of coups.

He was between a rock and a hard place after 9/11 and did his best. Especially when up against a madman like Bush. Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un
