LAHORE: Pervez Musharraf may have been a dictator but he was a liberal — much like Benazir Bhutto was. The tragedy is that Pakistan is a safe place for those who hold moderate and liberal views. I think if Musharraf were to return he wouldn’t be allowed to even set foot in the country’s politics and even previous loyalists like the Chaudhrys of Gujarat are now opposing his return. I think he should stay put where he is.
