Pakistan's former President and military ruler Pervez Musharraf arrives at an anti-terrorism court in Islamabad, Pakistan. Pakistani police opened a new investigation Monday, Sept. 2, 2013, into Musharraf's role in the death of a radical cleric killed during a raid of a mosque in downtown Islamabad, police said

Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan’s former military ruler, is to be released from house arrest and plans to leave the country, according to his lawyer


Pakistan's highest court granted bail to Pervez Musharraf, the country’s former military ruler, on Wednesday paving the way for his release from house arrest.
His lawyer said he was now free to leave the country but would return to answer the charges against him.
Mr Musharraf has suffered a turbulent time since returning in March to fight elections. His party failed to gain support, he was barred from standing in the polls and was eventually arrested on charges related to his period in office.
He was accused of the murder of Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister who was assassinated in 2007, and of crimes related to his final days in power, when he sacked or suspended judges.
He had already been granted bail in both cases and on Wednesday was granted bail in a third case, relating to the alleged murder of Nawab Akbar Bugti, a separatist leader in the south-western province of Baluchistan.

Insha Allah, the former President will be cleared of all the falsely fabricated charges against him. And then, I’d prefer he goes abroad and spends a peaceful life in some civilized country. We are too pathetic a nation to deserve a leader of his calibre. We are better off with uneducated, corrupt and self serving politicians!

Hmm…so sayeth the ex marshall! In one sentence you say , democracy should be nurtured and in the beginning you say ‘clash of institutions’. Could you for once clarify how one exit with out the other happening ?
Clash of institutions happen when there is an exaggerated sense of self importance, and funnily in Pakistan , In this clash , Politicians seem to be more timid considering that they have been elected by the people and the others not.
The ex marshall still can’t out of ‘mentality’ and wants all to appease, would he have said the same thing when Musharraf / Zia / Yahya / Ayub were in power ?
