Responding to this, 40 percent said they had mixed feelings, 35 percent said they were sad and 24 percent said they were happy. However, 1 percent did not give a response.
The respondents were also asked, “In your personal opinion, should ex-president Pervez Musharraf be arrested or not?” Responding to this, 43 percent said yes and 40 percent said no. However, 17 percent did not give a response.
