In his latest political move former President Pervez Musharraf released a charge sheet against PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif on Friday.

The charge sheet, which can be viewed on Musharraf’s Facebook page, contains several allegations.

The major charges include, corruption cases and wrongful use of powers as prime minister as well as chief minister of Punjab.

Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif and others misused official resources causing a loss to the national exchequer of Rs 620million by developing 1800 acres of land in Raiwind at state expense.

Having relations with terrorists and conspiring against the democratic system.

Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif and other party leaders practically share and proudly identify commonalities between PML-N and Taliban and they have very close ties and cordial relations with terrorists and banned terrorist outfits.

Maladministration, criminal assault on the Supreme Court (SC) and campaigning against the media.

In order to consolidate and attain more power, ‘the champion of democracy and independent judiciary’, Nawaz Sharif attacked every individual and institution, he felt could get in the way and challenge his authority.

Compromising on the Kashmir issue and being double minded about testing the atomic bomb.

The so called son of soil Nawaz Sharif virtually sold Kashmir in 1999 during Indian PM’s visit to Lahore. Nawaz Sharif deleted the word Kashmir from the joint declaration to please Indian counterpart.

Earlier the PML-N had also issued a 16-point charge sheet against the former president.

The main points of this sheet included Musharraf’s misuse of the army for his own cause and his war against the people of Pakistan.

He used Pakistan Army as his personal force undermining his professionalism and national character and showered patronage and favors like his previous military dictators to firm his grip on military which violated principles of merit and professional excellence

Corruption, Akbar Bugti’s murder and disappearances of people in Balochistan.

Thousands of Baloch political workers were made victims of enforced disappearance, with their family members still unaware of their whereabouts.

The Lal Masjid operation, attacking the judiciary and promulgation of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO).

In the process, hundreds of innocent girls and boys were butchered alive causing a severe reaction and strengthening the cause of extremist forces. The suicide bombs became a routine after a lal-Masjid incident.

Unconstitutional elections, and setting a record for the highest number of foreign visits by a head of state.

General Musharraf made a world record of foreign junkets and trips squandering billions of rupees from the national exchequer for his personal publicity and pleasure

    So Musharraf is our new Messiah. as if we have not seen his dictatorship. he had all the power that any democratic governemnt in Pakistan can ever imagine. but what did he do? had a fraudulent referendum. made prostitution out of the constitution. tried to further chain the judiciary. extend his rule and so on.
    He is whinning as if he was not allowed to rule for nine years.

    if you weigh these charges with the justice, General’s charge sheet seems to me heavier then of Sharif brothers because;

    1.nawaz sharif was worst then any dictator when he came in power in his last term especially when he tried to be “Ameer ul Mominin”.
    2.Yes,he attacked the supreme court during his tenure.
    3.from where did they made so much money, and steel mills, and factories and estate of raiwand,
    4.and the last suicidal mistake he made was changing a cheif of the army staff behind the back of Musharaf and tried even to divide the army,but luckily musharaf was able to ground from the air and kicked sharif’s —- so badly,which eventually resulted in exile in the shape of a hidden NRO, now the champion of “mesaq e jamhuriat” is back and trying every thing to be in power but is unable to succeed in it.even you can see the lust of power in his eyes (very pity).

    Why do we keep putting Musharrafs pciture on the frontlines of the media? Nawaz was wrong in dealing with the judiciary back then but beside that he had the right to dismiss a crazy army chief. Its within the prime ministers constitutional powers. This army has been looting the people’s budget for decades in the name of Kashmir. Starting of the Kargil was Musharraf’s personal madness. It was Musharraf era when the language of Kashmiri freedom fighters changed to Kashmiri terrorists. I no doubt question his patriotism. Also I think everyone knows who created the taliban. Zia gave us refugees and AK-47 culture whereas Musharraf left behind suicide bombings and an economic breakdown of our nation.Recommend

    he took a number of action where he used his power to enforce his dicision but he did every thing for the best interest of great pakistan.
    he had not formed his estates like feudal politicions.
    nawaz sharif infact is incompetent to b a prime minister but unfortunately he was elected twice and he caused a huge damage to the natuin and state as well.

    Its funny how some people are comparing Musharraf with Hitler.

    Did Hitler allow so much freedom to his press and media? If you’ve studied Hitler you would know the answer, “NO”.

    You ignorant people keep looking at Lal-Masjid and Bugti issues which have nothing to do with common people, yet you fail to see the economic successes that Pakistan enjoyed during Musharraf’s rule, which changed people’s lives.

    Our people’s memory is so weak that this was going on only 5 years ago yet they can’t see the difference.

    Mr. Musharraf has acknowledged he made a few errors but those errors can be compared with any nationalist political leader e.g. George W Bush, invading Iraq on suspicion of weapns of mass destruction, Adolf Hitler, attacking Soviet Union etc. etc.

    Illiteracy is the mother of all problems. Pakistan’s 60-70% population is illiterate. Bringing a country from 0 to the top takes time. Its not as easy as it looks. We all know how Pakistan changed under the regime of Musharraf. It is also true that he made blunders, but who doesn’t make mistakes. The thing is you cant change a country in seconds. Pakistan is in the hands of extremely corrupt politics. We all need to protect Pakistan, finish terrorism and promote our land for international investments. Pakistan is one of the most strategically located country in the world and we should make use of it. We should never loose hope, abhi bhi Pakistan mein buhat kuch hai, lekan ab time buhat kam hai…Democracy is surely not an option for Pakistan. We need a dictator until all the political parties are wiped out, and new election system is developed. We need to work hard on every system, make use of the technology which can be very helpful everywhere.

    All your critics and specially media for the last 2 year have been trying to propagate that you were enemy of nation. But time has proved that your tenure was best in the last 60 years and your efforts were numerous for the development of our country.Most of the people don’t try to investigate the reality and start bashing against you. Sir, i your charge sheet is genuine against nawaz sharif. I didn’t forget the era of 90s when these parties were playing with government like musical chair. And they plundered and destroyed our country and against they are coming in government to raise their mills and their palaces. I ask people who say that you killed Bugti, innocent people in lal mosque and deposed cj Iftikhar Chaudhry: have they read the reference against cj, have they witnessed the killing of innocent people, didn’t they know about the Bugti who killed many army personnel and fired rocket at our gas fields and was running a movement against Pakistan to separate Balochistan from Pakistan?

Pakistan has seen more success in 9 years than it has seen all the way form ayub khan’s time.

    Musharaf Era was the best Era in respect of economy. Pakistan’s bad luck is that people’s memory is weak, they forget things quickly.

    There were three major decades when army rules, and whatever the progress you have seen in Pakistan is only in these three decades, first one is in General Ayub. In his time, pakistan industry was grooming. secondly General Zia, which was neutral, if there was no progress but neither a downfall,
    Third one is the Musharaf’s 9 years. All those people who thinks he is a worst leader, I will advise them to open up your eyes, and look outside the window. Then you will realize that Musharaf had done a great.
    Pakistan foreign exchange rate was about 8000 to 9000 points when nawaz sharif was taken over by army and the time when musharraf resigned from his presidency, it was in 15000 points +/-.
    But today when these sugar coted democracy is ruling? what we have? 9000points in foreign exchange?
    I don’t trust Geo. they are just saying what they are paid for.

    there is a lot, but I think its better if you search it by yourself. Musharraf did make mistakes but if you run a comparison with honesty, 85% of Mussharaf decisions were in favor of Pakistan.

    Wake up Pakistan.Recommend

    @ Mian Kamil Hamid

    Pakistan’s economy witnessed a major economic transformation during Musharraf regime. The country’s real GDP increased from $60 billion to $170 billion, with per capita income rising from under $500 to over $1000 during 2000-07…..the volume of international trade increased from $20 billion to nearly $60 billion. Poverty reduced to half (from 34% to 17%). The improved macroeconomic performance enabled Pakistan to re-enter the international capital markets in the mid-2000s. Large capital inflows financed the current account deficit and contributed to an increase in gross official reserves to $14.3 billion at end-June 2007. Buoyant output growth, low inflation, and the government’s social policies contributed to a reduction in poverty and improvement in many social indicators”.

    In the 1990s, economic growth plummeted to between 3% and 4%, poverty rose to 33%, inflation was in double digits and the foreign debt mounted to nearly the entire GDP of Pakistan as the governments of Benazir Bhutto (PPP) and Nawaz Sharif (PML) played musical chairs. Before Sharif was ousted by General Musharraf in 1999, the two parties had presided over a decade of corruption and mismanagement. In 1999 Pakistan’s total public debt as percentage of GDP was the highest in South Asia – 99.3 percent of its GDP and 629 percent of its revenue receipts, compared to Sri Lanka (91.1% & 528.3% respectively in 1998) and India (47.2% & 384.9% respectively in 1998). Internal Debt of Pakistan in 1999 was 45.6 per cent of GDP and 289.1 per cent of its revenue receipts, as compared to Sri Lanka (45.7% & 264.8% respectively in 1998) and India (44.0% & 358.4% respectively in 1998).

    The IMF has acknowledged that Pakistan became one of the four fastest growing economies in the Asian region during 2000-07 with its growth averaging 7.0 per cent per year for most of this period. As a result of strong economic growth, Pakistan succeeded in reducing poverty by one-half, creating almost 13 million jobs, halving the country’s debt burden, raising foreign exchange reserves to a comfortable position and propping the country’s exchange rate, restoring investors’ confidence and most importantly, taking Pakistan out of the IMF Program.

    Although I agree to the extent that NS, Zardari, MQM, ANP and all others are very corrupt. But I will give you some facts, due to this War on terror Pakistan has suffered a loss 50-60 Billion US$. We have to spend more on defense due to this war and obviously there is more pressure on budget to allocate resources for it. As we have low tax collection that makes it more difficult to any government. After 12 years of War even US is just looking for a way out. What Pakistan is getting as coalition partner is just peanuts like 7.5US$ billion, or 1.5 billion a year, which is nothing as compared to what US is spending 100 Billion US$ on it every year. And this is all due to his decisions we are still suffering and I don’t know how long we will be suffering due to his
    I would say he is past, some of his steps were good in the start but later on greed to rule country longer just ruined his objectives. The only hope for Pakistan is Imran Khan, who has vision, courage and clean past due to things he has done in Pakistan.Recommend

    I agree that suicide started during the tenure of Musharraf. But why would any suicider attach when he gets favour from the government or politicians. they only started agitation when they were told that they were not supported anymore and they have to abide by law. This is the main reason why suicide attacks were not observed during Nawaz/PPP (earlier) govt.

    These days, PPP govt has no other option but to tackle them strictly mainly on the pressure of Pak Army and international community’s pressure.

    I cannot agree to the supporters of Suicide attackers / Taliban which they claim is a reaction of Drone attacks.

    First of all, if you are mis-treated, it doesn’t give you right to take law in your hands and in any circumstances no one has right to kill any innocent person.

    I believe Army should be the best option, but considering international pressure to keep the democracy, we don’t have any better option than Musharraf. But, I would advise Musharraf also not to keep same politicians or to gain support of opposition to keep the power but to take action against any culprit who has damaged the nation.Recommend

    For those who love musharaf, watch this todays i.e. 14 November Jawab Deyh with 12 Oct DG Civil Aviation Authority program when he toppled Nawaz Sharif Government. Remember, I don’t like Nawaz Sharif, but I equally dislike musharaf.

    Dear Rtd. Gen. Musharraf

    I believe your tenure was much better then the current one. Except few mistakes rest of the decisions were good and people of Pakistan were better off. After all we all are human beings and making mistake is good only when we dont repeat them. We learn from our mistakes.

    Our economy was growing, exchange rate of dollar remained with in range of 60 – 63 for more nine years, Pakistan got freed from Kashkool of IMF, foreign reserves were much higher.

    Due to some non famous decisions, in last period of your tenure, you remained busy in dealing the consequences of such decisions.

    Any way, worst part is that since you left and democracy came, people of Pakistan became more slave then ever before. Corruption has grown up to the extent that international community labelling and showing increase of rating in corruption.

    Can anybody believe that a country which always keeping kashkool in their hands, have the second largest ministries in number, now govt importing 200 hundred bullet proof vehicles for all ministers which cost is around 20millions each, building luxury suites in Islamabad for non performer ministers. Can the crispy people of Pakistan bear such heavy expenses? No at all.

    We, all educated even non educated people are now understood that goodness cant be come through these landlords, wadairas, chaudhries.

    We forgot our Allah, Muhammad and his teachings. If true muslim want to do any thing for good, he can do with the blessings of Allah. Allah also supports him.

    So, Mr. Musharraf, we are waiting for you to take charge and good days to come for the people of Pakistan.

    I wish you come back and under your leadership we all make Pakistan so much stronger in terms of economy, values, respect, honour that we all get respect internationally like china.

    Allah bless you and all people of Pakistan.


    Well wisher of Pakistan. Recommend

    Mr. Musharraf

    I felt proud when recent world wide army exercise, Pakistan army personnels declared as the “toughest and trained army man” it means we all Pakistani have a potential to be on top and this is very much true. Why, when we all go out side Pakistan and we perform extra ordinary, get distinctions, bcause we have a potential.

    I wish we, means Pakistan get the right leader in shape of Mr. Musharraf.Recommend

    all my countrymen should understand onething that they should start thinking practicaly and they should understand that these people have played havoc with our foundations just for their own self . everything they are saying is a big lie. what have they done for this country. others also who were at the helm of affairs for sometime have shown this atitude by plundering, looting and corrupting our nation.politics now in pakistan is business. all of them want to cash their share as public does not know this game . no body has shown any concern for our people. the law and order situation has never deteriorated so worse as under mush since creation of pakistan. so calling them great leaders is unjust to those leaders who worked day night for their people and changed the past into a bright future not like ours who drowned our country into the drain of corruption ,nepotism,favoritism,bribery,theft and plunder.Recommend
