Pervez Musharraf to return to Pakistan

Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has said that he would welcome the change if the current elected government is dismissed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan through JIT investigation.


He was addressing the press conference held at the office of All Pakistan Muslim League in Dubai.


Expressing his hopes that the Supreme Court would bring change in the country, he said that Pakistan is in need of change and replacement of the system and it would be a ‘bonus’.


Pervez Musharraf announced he is planning a return to power.


“I am ready to lead the grand alliance of the political parties who are fed up with the politics of Pakistan Muslim League and Pakistan Peoples Party,” Musharraf told media yesterday in Dubai at the makeshift office of his All Pakistan Muslim League (APML).


On Tuesday, some leaders of religious and political parties met with Pervez Musharraf in his residence and asked him to lead a ‘grand political alliance’.

President Awami League Riaz Fatiyana, Chairman Sunni Itehad Council Hamid Raza, Additional Secretary Muttahida Wahdadat-i-Muslimeen Nasir Shirazi, President of Muslim League Jenejo Iqbal Dar, Chairman Pakistan Mazdoor Itehad Naeem Quershi and Secretary General APML Dr Amjad were present at the press conference.



Musharraf did not announce any specific date to return to the country but said that when his ‘grand alliance’ gets successful and popular then he will definitely go back to Pakistan.


Musharaf rejected the government’s claims of better economic outlook and regretfully asserted that Pakistan’s foreign direct investments and exports have been decreasing. He said that Pakistan’s international status and repute has been blown out due to the current foreign policies.


He further added that Pakistan’s image is tarnished among the international community especially in United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, United Stated and Iran.


On tensions with neighbours, such as Afghanistan, Musharraf said the dialogue was needed. “We need to follow our own interest,” he said.


“We need to get into a discussion with them, and resolve whatever they have against us, tell them what we have against them, and sit together and try to resolve. This is the only way, diplomatically moving forward.”


Pervez Musharraf also said that his party was in contact with the Pakistan Awami Tehreek of Tahirul Qadri to include it in the alliance. In his concluding remarks, Pervez Musharraf said that all parties of urban Sindh, including MQM-Pakistan and Pak Sar Zameen Party, should not be divided and should bring themselves on one page for the betterment of the country.
