Musharraf delays return without setting new date


Former president and All Pakistan Muslim League chief Pervez Musharraf has delayed his return home, party Secretary General Muhammad Ali Saif announced on Friday.
“He finally decided today that he would accept the recommendations” of the executive committee of the All Pakistan Muslim League to delay his return, Saif told reporters.
“This decision (of returning) will be deliberated by the core committee of the party,” he said.
Friends and supporters had urged Musharraf to put off an imminent homecoming after Islamabad said he would be arrested if he returned from more than three years of self-imposed exile in London and Dubai.
Speaking to CNN in Davos, Switzerland, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said Musharraf would “certainly” be arrested if he set foot back in Pakistan. Musharraf had promised to fly home to contest general elections. He faces two court warrants for his arrest in connection with the 2006 death of Akbar Bugti, and the 2007 assassination of ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
In an interview broadcast on BBC radio earlier this month, Musharraf acknowledged he would be in danger in Pakistan. “I do feel endangered. There is a danger certainly, but you take your own protection and then leave things to destiny. Nobody can ensure you 100 percent protection,” he said. He admitted that his arrest in Pakistan was possible but said he would “like to remain out” of the crisis engulfing the government, army and judiciary.


    • One hundred percent right. What a 'goli baaz' Mr. Musharraf is.

      The super commando thinks all is hunky dory but he has not as yet realized that he is not a 'son of the soil.' This has been doing the rounds for quite some time.

      It's over for Mr. Musharraf as is evident from the last two years of his rule. Salams.
