LAHORE: Former president Pervez Musharraf announced on Sunday that he would return to Pakistan in January 2012. Musharraf said, via a videoconference in Lahore from London, that the solution to current challenges did not lie in undemocratic initiatives. Dragging the military into politics would be fatal for the country, he warned.

His All Pakistan Muslim League had arranged a public gathering at Nasser Bagh and party workers from across the country participated.

Musharraf said that the ISI and Army were a guarantee of Pakistan’s solidarity and sovereignty, adding that some elements were conspiring to use the ‘memo matter’ to defame the ISI and the Army.

Musharraf said that both leading political parties had been in power but delivered nothing.

The former president urged the people to cast their votes for capable leaders ignoring affiliations of caste and creed and clear of linguistic, religious and provincial prejudices.

Endorsing the demand of PTI chief Imran Khan, Musharraf said, all politicians should disclose details of assets, adding, “I will announce the details of my assets on my arrival in Pakistan.”

He also said that Pakistan faced enormous crisis’s due to incompetent leaders. No institution could steer the country out of the current quagmire on its own, he said.

“I led Pakistan towards prosperity and stabilised the economy during my regime. I also improved the image of the country worldwide. I will soon be among my countrymen. Those making all kinds of allegations against me will be unable to prove a single allegation of corruption against me,” he added.

Earlier, APML secretary general Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif, Punjab president Mian Zahid Sarfraz and central media advisor Fawad Chaudary also spoke to the gathering.

    @ Hashim…please let me correct you. Imran is not the first one to declare his assets. Musharraf did that in his first address to nation :) Can you tell some one thing? How do you plan on breaking the statu quo with another status quo party? Do you know your leader Mr. Imran Khan has said in an interview that ‘he thinks the poor and the middle class people have no place in politics. If they will be given the chance they will definitely fill their own pockets because they don’t have money’…isnt that a status quo statement?

    Lastly, if you are a true patriot i urge you not to look for ‘CHANGE’ but look for ‘PROGRESS’ and so i would like to take this opportunity to invite you to APML :)

    I support Musharraf and his nine-year rule. He is a thousand time better that the present ruling clique. However, I fail to understand the logic of his entering into politics. He was a powerful, and of course a popular, president. Suppose, if he again becomes president, will he be enjoying all those powers which he exercised during his rule – no, certainly not. And if he becomes the Prime minister then will he work under the president? – looks very odd. The bvest advice to him is that he should make use of his talent and experience by setting up and heading a Think Tank and devise and suggest ways and means to solve the problems of pakistan and its people. That will be a true service to pakistan.

Musharaff while in power was not able to make independent decisions.He had to carry with him top army brass and politicians with him before making any decisions. He would not have lasted more than few moths If he would have started making independent decisions. he had to compromise with ground realities and who ever comes next will again have to make comprises unless there is a spontaneous public revolution.Under the circumstances Musharraf did better than any body.. He is widely respected worldwide.He is a honest and corageus man. People who accuse him of breaking the constitution are typical example of black and white thinking. If some one is good for pakistan and helping develop the country i don’t care even he decleares himself a king.The ultimate is Pakistan’s progress and development. .

    I am surprised at the accolades for Musharraf. Probably he has hidden, and moved his assets around that it would be hard to track them easily. How does a Pakistani General with his salary have a residence, in Dallas, London and possibly Dubai. Just the up keep of those residences woud require the salaries of a ten generals. Pakistani’s should not allow any leader to be in a ruler position or contest the elections who has been the President/ PM for more then eight years. It was Musharraf who made unilateral deals with George Bush by aligning in a War that was not Pakistan’s. He unilaterally gave away bases over the objections of his Core Commanders. It was under his rule that not a single power generation plant was setup. Do not forget he was the one blessing the sale of the Pakistan Steel Mills way below the market value, not to mention the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
    Agreed Musharraf usurped power by a coup, and had dreams of being the Pakistani Ataturk but he lacked the courage and valor of nationalism. By coming to power through a coup he committed a crime as per the constitution of Pakistan, for which he needs to face the consequences.
    Any Politican who lives outside of Pakistan for more then three months in a year should be barred from running for any office or election till they can establish continous permanent residence in Pakistan for three years.
    Those who support Musharraf are not champions of democracy and progress. We need new faces, leaders and men/women of conviction and character to move Pakistan forward. Someone talked about the Rupess exchange rate during Musharraf and today. Well that has nothing to do with Musharraf but other global factors and Government policies. Musharaf if he is a Patriot and a proud soldier should not have left/fled Pakistan after losing the election. Leaders do not abandon their ship during rough seas and come back to take control when the climate is conducive. How many Indian leaders do you see leaving India and establishing residences in other countries in self exile. ……………………….

The work listens to him for god sake don’t be stupid people he is a gem. Everyone makes mistakes. The imp fact is both mush and Imran are not CORRUPT. God bless Pakistan

    @Sohail:
    Bravo. It’s the best comment I have ever read online. You have wonderfully depicted the summary of events during the last 10 years in Pakistan. During Musharraf’s time; dollar was stable; the economy was booming; the rate of poverty fell from 34 percent during 1999 to 17 percent in 2007; FDI figures were sky-rocketing; funding for higher education was tripled in a short time; thousands of students were sent overseas for PhDs; peace process with India was moving ahead; a number of mega projects were underway throughout the country, NADRA, NAB and local bodies system were put in place, free media, scores of channels, unprecedented growth in telecommunications and access to the internet services and much more.

    He has made similar promises in the past and has never honored them – this will be no different. As I recall there are at least two outstanding arrest warrants against Musharraf – one for the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti and one in association for the assassination of Bhutto – and they have already seized some of his assets. The only way he’s going to return to Pakistan is if the military takes over and asks him to be a front man.

    This is good news from Musharraf. I think for far too long pakistan has had a two party system. The people need to have greater choice in a true democracy. As long as Musharraf clears his name for the cases filed against him then we should view his arrival back to the country as a positive thing in pakistani politics. For any strong democracy a free media is one of the most important pillars … Musharaf should be given credit for this! The imrany tsunami has largely been contributed by a free media and a strong judiciary.

Ofcourse when there is no security then the voter turn out is weak and meagre and that simply meant that the country was not ready for democracy yet, due to lack of law and order. The only problem with Musharraf was that he bailed out too fast on orders of warrior ‘Bush’ and naive nation and power hungry politicians!

Kargil adventure, imposed American Killers over us, gifted them air bases to attack our country, Lal Masjid, Bughti Murder, NRO, hijacking of Judiciary and so on…… We can see the dollars coming in pakistan in Mush era but y we cant see at wot cost? Sovereignty of Pak!!! The country was making progress but at the cost of blood of innocent people????
    And still we are welcoming him. Almighty Allah plz give us sense to understand the things in proper way. Plz grant us the power to think a little for the country and nation instead of our personal interests. Ameen!!! Recommend

    @Blithe: If Musharraf have plundered the country’s wealth than why the present Zardari-Gilani govt is keeping it secret cause there is no truth in it. If it would have been true than several corruption cases would have been initiated and probably interpol would have been sought to apprehend Musharraf which didn’t happen and will never happen. Simple truth is that Musharraf is a clean man as far as corruption is related. I along with all the Pakistani’s living abroad are shamed in our every days life because the most corrupt, thief and looter was sworn in as President of Pakistan. Shame shame on us only Almighty can save us and the people of Pakistan from this stigma. Recommend

    The sad story is that Pakistani leaders bring about corrupt democracy time and time again and they are the one to blame for the falure of democracy and no one else. When the country is plundered and looted and people’s life at risk at every turn . . .it is common sense that the only ethical institution with integrity is the Pak miliitary and it will be there to play its national role to save the nation from the plunderers and looters who do not have the larger interest of the nation at heart and have been causing security and economic risk to the nation. So, no one can blame Pak military from taking appropiate action!

    Musharaf is a great leader for country like Pakistan, he is honest, brave, intelligent, intelect, mannerd and on top of all, he is very very sincer to Pakistan, Pakistan Forces and Nation.
    We have never heard a single case of corruption against this man.

    Pakistan need leader like Musharaf.

    @Anjum Amin Siddiqui: While the rest of the Muslim world wants to put dictators in jail, some confused people want to welcome a man like Musharraf who took over illegally and destabilized the nation- sad!

    @Maryam:
    Sounds like you are Maryam Nawaz Sharif. If you are then listen, don’t spit your personal grievances here, go to courts in Pakistan and file your complaints there. As far as Musharraf is concerned, he has been one of the best leaders Pakistan has ever seen. After all he is human as well and might have done mistakes—where as N-league and Zardari-league have done no mistakes BUT have been sucking blood of Pakistanis and Pakistan. So, the only hope now left is Imran Khan.
    or else it would be Musharraf (for which chances are slim because of propaganda we see against him at every single forum)

    God bless Pakistan and Pakistani’s and to hell with the corrupt leaders and their families!
