ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s top political parties on Saturday ridiculed former President Pervez Musharraf’s claim of a return to politics, saying there is no room for him in the country’s political arena.

Musharraf said that he would return to politics, form a new political party and stand for parliament at the next general election in 2013.

His comments, given in an interview with the BBC in London, were greeted with scorn from political rivals.

‘The former president is a coward man and he will not return to Pakistan,’ a leader of Pakistan’s largest Islamic party Jamat-e-Islami, Liaqat Baloch, told AFP.

‘The entire country is engulfed in a serious crisis because of the culture that Musharraf introduced in Pakistan.

‘Neither does he enjoy public support nor will he find courage to return to Pakistan,’ he added.

The 67-year-old Musharraf said he was not scared of the threat of legal action against him and insisted that he had to try to lift Pakistan out of its ‘pathetic situation’.

‘The brave former army commando preferred to run away instead of facing courts of law in Pakistan,’ Siddique-ul-Farooque, spokesman for Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), told AFP.

Musharraf ousted former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in a bloodless coup in 1999. He was president from 2001 and has mostly lived in London since resigning in 2008.

‘He (Musharraf) lives in fool’s paradise if he thinks he will again become Pakistan’s president,’ Farooque said, referring to his current status as ‘hibernation’.

He said: ‘Musharraf must remember that whenever he gets out of this hibernation and comes back to Pakistan, he will have to face the courts.’

But Musharraf said possible legal cases against him were not putting him off a swift return. However, he admitted his popularity had waned but said it was still strong among the majority of Pakistanis who do not vote.

‘Two hundred percent I will participate in the next election. Standing for myself. Standing for a party that I’ll create,’ Musharraf said Friday in London, where he lives in exile.

‘I do intend creating a new party because I think the time has come in Pakistan when we need to introduce a new political culture: a culture which can take Pakistan forward on a correct democratic path, not on an artificial, make-believe democratic path.

‘I have fought wars, I have faced dangers and I’m a lucky man. I’ll try my luck again and I’m not scared of that,’ he said.

A former minister in his government welcomed the announcement.

‘Musharraf’s return to politics is the need of the hour and only he can safeguard Pakistan and its interests,’ Dr. Sher Afgan Niazi said, adding that the former president had the ‘vision and wisdom’ to save the country.

‘He (Musharraf) is an asset for this country, who did a great job by protecting vital national interests and strengthening economy and social sector during his tenure.’

    Siddique-ul-Farooque is a mouth piece of PML-N and they are scared of Musharaf fobia.

    They tried their best to drag Musharaff on many false case, but till todate were not successful.
    They will keep doing mud-slinging but now the nation is more matured than before as media is playing best ever role to enlighten them with the facts.

    PML-N who is wrongly assuming that the next Government will be theirs. But they are the ones who are living in Fool’s paradise. Musharaff is equally popular in Punjab beside other provinces.

    I suggest Musharaff to keep his new party’s name as SSPP (SUBSE PEHLAY PAKISTAN PARTY).

    I am no Musharaf fan, however, by denying him the legitimate right to stand in elections as a Pakistani citizen is far from democratic. It is not for the politicians of the day to declare that there is no “space” for him. That is for the people of Pakistan to decide. As for Musharaf himself, theres not much that comes out his mouth that I particularly care for, however, as they say, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” Recommend

    Criticizing and mud-slinging is the simpliest thing in the world. Yes I agree that Musharaff did few mistake as he is also a human being and hope he will learn from his mistakes.

    But his overall performance was the excellent, best and corruption free.

    You may recall Musharaff tried to delay LaL Masjid operations and prople started to blame him that this Lal Masjid Drama has been instigated by Musharaff Government only to divert public attention from judiciary crises. So it he delays – he is accused and when he takes action – he is still accused. That is why it is easy for one to blame.

    Kargil action was nicely planned and even India got scared as Pakistan Army was on top of the hill to push them back. But alas our Coward leader Nawaz Sharif (NS) alias Kaghazi Sher immediately flown to US and begged President USA to tell India not to attack on us. What a shame.

    Peace talks with India in Musharaff era started and was about to be conlduded with some results. Indian Government and even their hostile media was well covered by the acumen of Musharaff who did allowed them to ride on him. It was a great success.

    NRO was agreed to bring back both PPP and NS. If this would not have done, you would have still see PML-Q in power. It was a great credit to Musharaff to allow bo th these parties and given them a chance for fair and free election which is a feather on the head of Musharaff.

    Mushaff cried and did his best for Kalabagh and other Dams. Kalabagh Dam was shot down by Vaderas (now in power) on political reasons. He had not enough time to complete other Dams except few of them. It was credit to him that Load Shedding was not prevailed in those days like these days where we count when the electric will come.

    Judge a person with his poritive attitude and other positive performance. Hope Musharaff will deliver more when he will be elected in majority not less than 2/3rd to implement his revolutionary refoms in this country.

    We dont need the present type of democracy which is making poor to poorer and poorer to pooriarist. Enough is enough.

    An unfortunate country where the doctrine of ‘chori aur Seena zori’ prevails with impunity.. Instead of feeling ashamed over their failures, our booted out rulers are always banking upon worse failures of their successors.to make themselves look better again.
    For God ‘s sake ban ‘spent bullets’ from trying to line up and.fire again.. Pakistan has 170 million people. Any well meaning average person body could have done better given the unbridled powers that God gave Musharraf.
    He should relax and write a book on how he turned his back on the promises he made to the nation at the time of lunching a military coup and taking over absolute power.
    He should repent the harm he did to this country by harboring extremism which went out of his control and turned into terrorism.
    Disqualification of Musharraf for a comeback does not mean the present leaders are any better. We need a complete change of system, otherwise the rot will persist in recycled forms.Recommend

    The comments here should be an eye-opener for the current political leaders. Musharraf clearly seems to have gained sympathies from the time of his removal from the power.

    Let me be very clear, I consider Musharraf to be a usurper of power, but the way he is posturing leaves me little doubt that he really wishes to stage a come back.

    Let’s suppose he come back by the middle or end of 2012 and finally decides to fight the 2013 election! Of course he’d wish to win!
    He doesn’t have a political party a the moment, even his so-called PML-Q Lotas except Sher Afghan- the Liar are not supporting him. So what does he need? He would need support from the old-timers (maybe MQM!!?) or some new faces to become the prime-minister of Pakistan ( Hahaha…., imagine “Prime-Minister Musharraf”)!!

    So, how?

    The answer is clear: Only through army’s complete backing of him.

    I’m sure he enjoys excellent relations with our current god- “The invincible Kiyani”- remember, Musharraf passed on the army leadership to Kiyani. (I’m sure he must have done it on merit, so is my impression! but there must be a soft corner in Kiyani’s heart for Mushi.)

    Ok. Let’s build the conspiracy theory a little further.

    Lets suppose by the end of 2012, which is two years from now, there is a general impression that the PPP led Government has badly failed in tackling the flood situation and issues in general- like price hike, Energy crisis and so on. The politicians like always are heaping garbage over each other before the election season.

    Army like always is the powerful institution and doesn’t like Nawaz League for taking a tough stance against it. MQM, JUI-F are moldable parties. Could ANP be a huge problem to tackle? Could be tackled!

    Even if Nawaz League takes vote in Punjab, an army friendly Musharraf-League might not look too bad an option for army.

    Musharraf should pray that the Army Intelligence Agencies by the end of 2012, should tell Kiyani that Musharraf League provides the best set-up for ensuring Army’s interest in the country. And bingo! All is done.

    Who knows, these small matters might already have been decided for the sake of stability and smooth transfer of power? The old buddies might already have brokered a conditional deal between them! Recommend

    Dr Saleem Siddiqi
    You may be a good PR person, soft paddling Musharaff’s blunders but I’m a realist and an equal opportunity critic. I’m neutral as far as various players are concerned.
    Let me take up the question of economic performance. During his tenure, there were $100 billion of excess resources available to the country. He tried to build consumption based economy and Banker Aziz was perfect for doing it. Such an economy requires ever increasing amount of financial resources to sustain it. How can you import goods $34 billion and export only $17 billion for extended period of time. Name me one export industry which could fill this gap. Any third rate economist would see that in ten minutes. These things are beyond any dictator’s comprehension. You would say America is doing it for years but America can print dollars without limit.
    Let me take up Kargil issue. No army should take an action unless there is a clear path to end state including the political ramifications. If you remember, the purpose of this operation was to cut off Indian troops resupply and when Indians escalated the fighting where was the great general.
    I could give you my analysis of his other actions but defer for reason of brevity.
    This man is brave when he has gun in his hand and coward when faced with counter force, shallow in his thinking and impulsive. None of his actions ended in any positive outcome.
    He is banking on PML-Q and MQM to carry the day and these groups benefited greatly during his time.

    Let us not make it a pro and anti Musharraf discussion. Parvez Mahmud has dispassionately analyzed the real situation. It is a fact that Dictators enjoy absolute powers which elected leaders do not.

    Like Parvez said which elected govt had $100 billion at it’s disposal. Politicians are always clearing their tails and in between are blackmailed by party workers etc. Military rulers do not suffer such limitations. If they were true to their promises they could have done wonders but being from the same soil they also fall to greed and selfishness and create worse problems for the country their competitor politicians.

    If Musharraf supporters boast of economic well being during his time, they must realise that it was temporary, superficial and at a very high actual cost using the billions of US dollars obtained for selling our sovereignty, using casino economics juggled by the financial clown Shaukat Aziz who hurriedly deserted Pakistan after doing his job. Musharraf can best be described as a Don Quixote who with his Sancho Panza (Short Cut Aziz) pushed this country further into the dust and themselves ran away to give lectures abroad on how to govern (ruin) a country.Recommend

Where are those stupid “Voqla” and their master minds in this time of National Needs. Why is Media so aggressive and is only interested in its own ratings? Both lower and superior judiciary so willingly takes up those cases which will only pave way for some other forces. All seem to be out there for major type of destruction. Media Houses have opened their own accounts in the name of flood reliefs and as such openly speaks and propagates that no body trusts the government, people only trust in us (media persons) whereas these Media Houses are not prepared to pay the due taxes which now amounts to billions. It is now commonly known that they have been given Stay Order by the Judiciary. All Pillars of the state are at logger heads and are simply doing Point Scoring. Are we heading towards revolution from the lowest level because upper ones seem to be knowing nothing what is happening on the ground level.

Musharaff has shown this ability of innovative ideas and handling live press conferences at home and abroad especially in India.

    Even old knowledgeable but honest leadera would be acceptable compared to present (in power and opposition) Leaders who have proved to be involded in Loot and Plunder should be tried and hanged publically.
