Musharaf should face courts of law. He is a usurper of power, responsible for the deaths of scores of innocent Pakistanis in Karachi and other parts of Pakistan. He imprisoned judges in their homes without any mercy or relaxation of the conditions of confinement for their families, young or old, in good health or sick.

Its a suprize how many mush supporters we have here. Do you people even know how he came into power? He was a dictator, a userper and a traiter acc to article 6. What he did later is also interesting. The way he sold people in exchange for dollors, afia siddiqi and Lal masjid episode? How can you forget all that? Just because PPP is bad doesnt make him good.
