Former President Of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf Passed Away

 Former President Of General Pervez Musharraf, who seized power in a coup in 1999, has died at the age od 79 years of Old.

Pervez Musharraf the former leader-who was president between the year of 2001 to 2008 has died in Dubai after a very long illness, a statement from the Pakistan country’s army said.

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

He had supported the United States war on terror after 9/11 despite domestic opposition.

In the year of 2008 he suffered defeat in the polls and left the country 6 months later.

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

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

Musharraf died in hospital on Sunday morning On 5 Feb, 2023, officials confirmed to news agencies.

The former leader’s body will be flown back from the United Arab Emirates to the Country of Pakistan via a special flight after his family submitted an application to do so.

In the statement confirming the death, the military said it expressed its heartfelt condolenses and added: “May Allah bless the departed soul and give strength to bereaved family.”

Pakistan’s president Arif Alvi prayed for eternal rest of the departed soul and courage to the bereaved family to bear the loss, his office said in a statement.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif also expressed his condolences, as did the country’s military leaders.

Musharraf’s rule was characterised by extremes. He was credited by some with turning around the economic fortunes of the country.

But his career was also marred by controversy, including accusations of failing to provide adequate security for former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, whose assassination by the Taliban in 2007 shocked Pakistan and the world.

His career ultimately ended in disgrace and arrest, when he was sentenced to death in absentia for treason in 2019. Though that sentencing was later reversed, he never returned to Pakistan.

However, Fawad Chaudhury, a former aide of Musharraf and currently a senior leader of former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party, praised Musharraf and the influence he had on Pakistan.

“He is called a military dictator, but there has never been a stronger democratic system than that under him…Pervez Musharraf led Pakistan at a very difficult time, and Pakistanis believe the era of his reign was one of the best in Pakistan’s history,” Mr Chaudhury said.

Being Owner of World Info we also pray for him May his soul rest in Peace.
