Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Former Pakistani President, General Pervez Musharraf, has passed away today at the age of 79 in a hospital in Dubai. He was suffering from Amyloidosis, a disease caused by the buildup of a protein called amyloid in organs, leading to impaired organ function.
Early life and career:
Musharraf was born in Delhi, India, in August 1943 and became the President of Pakistan in 1999 after a military coup. He served as the President from 1999 to 2008, making him the longest-serving military ruler in Pakistan’s history. He was also the Chief of Army Staff from 1998 to 2007.
Musharraf’s time as President was marked by a number of significant events, including the US-led war on terrorism, the Kargil conflict with India, and the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. He also faced opposition and criticism for his handling of the media, human rights, and the judiciary during his time in office.
Musharraf stepped down from office in 2008 and went into self-imposed exile in Dubai, where he remained until his death. Despite facing several court cases in Pakistan, he had intention to return to the country and contest the general elections in 2013. However, he was barred from running for office and faced several legal challenges, which he faced until his death.
Musharraf’s death has come as a shock to many, and the news has been met with mixed reactions from people in Pakistan and around the world. Those who knew him as a visionary leader, who brought stability and modernization to the country, mourn his loss, while others remember him as a controversial figure who undermined the country’s democratic institutions.
In conclusion, the death of Pervez Musharraf marks the end of an era in Pakistan’s history. He was a controversial figure, but his legacy will always be remembered as a key player in the country’s political landscape. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones during this difficult time.
The body of Pervez Musharraf will be sent to Pakistan tomorrow.
