High Commission Petition London 2014

All Pakistan Muslim League – UK

11 January 2014

Thanks to the vindictive and politicised nature of the Pakistani Judiciary and PML-N regime’s never ending thirst for revenge, the international community is laughing and ridiculing the Pakistani Judicial system. British Pakistanis, along with the international community, are deeply troubled by the unfair and unjust treatment being meted out to the former President of Pakistan, the honourable Pervez Musharraf, by the Sharif regime and the overly biased Pakistani Judiciary.

Fabricated Case of Lal Masjid / Jamia Hafsa – EXCLUSIVE

By Usman Sheikh 

In another absurd move, the former President of Pakistan has been arrested again on the basis of the allegation that he “killed” the mother of the terrorist Ghazi brothers (along with the younger Ghazi brother). It is as if the former President rolled up his sleeves, pressed the trigger or ordered the soldiers on the ground to ensure only one of the Ghazi brothers was killed, along with his mother, whilst all the unarmed students, women and kids were successfully rescued.

Below is a very brief and quick summary of the main points.

General Musharraf speaks to NDTV’s Barkha Dutt

15 March 2013

New Delhi/Dubai: In an exclusive interview to NDTV’s Group Editor Barkha Dutt, former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf says he “won’t deny” reports that he crossed into Indian territory ahead of the Kargil War in 1999 to spend some time with his troops.

This is the transcript of the interview:

NDTV: For the first time in Pakistan’s history a civilian government is all set to complete 5 years in Parliament, in the country’s Parliament, making it a historic record of sorts. In the midst of all this as Pakistan looks towards fresh elections and before that an interim government to lead it towards these fresh elections, one of the men, a high-profile ex-leader of Pakistan who served Pakistan both as its Army chief and as its President is all set to return back and jump into the electoral fray. That’s right, we are talking about Pakistan’s former Army Chief and President General Pervez Musharraf who says that by next week, this time, he will be back in Pakistan come what may. What role will he play in Pakistan’s politics? Is democracy really, in a sense, taking route in Pakistan in a meaningful way and also will General Musharraf’s history continue to tail him? To answer this and much more, we are joined from Dubai by General Pervez Musharraf himself.Video: Musharraf indicates he crossed Line of Control in 1999

Welcome to The Buck Stops Here General Musharraf, I want to start by asking you that when I interviewed you last which was in 2011 in London, at that time you were hopeful that by March 2012 you will be able to go back home. You later said that the circumstances in the country did not permit that. I want to ask you now, that are you absolutely categorical that on 24th of March, come what may you will board back the flight back to Pakistan?

General Musharraf: Yes, I am absolutely categorical and there is logic behind it. When you are talking of 2012, the elections were not in sight. I was going because of the certain environment and I was then advised that the environment is not correct. Now the elections are in sight, they are going to be held, if I create a political party for the purpose of going for the elections.  So, if I don’t go now, then when will I go? So it is now or never. So it’s absolutely categorical that I have to go.

Why President Musharraf became a necessity for Pakistan?

Mr. Jawad Hussain

Part – 1  of the Series

1 May 2012 – Since the days of East India Company, the western powers have been applying the strategy of purchasing loyalty of the locals successfully and the same practice is still bearing huge dividends to them in Pakistan.

My basic aim behind writing this chain of articles here is to show that side of the picture which many of us could never watch while some others never wanted to watch and learn the lesson from it.

President Pervez Musharraf came into power in October 1999 when the then Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ordered armed forces to stop his plane from landing in Pakistan after developing serious differences with the army chief in the backdrop of Kargil War against India.

We don’t need much research to find out who in this episode acted as the one who sold his national pride and loyalty to the western masters for millions of dollars in his foreign bank accounts as Mr. Nawaz Sharif travelled to Washington while Pakistan Army were fighting a war in Kargil, which could have freed Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOC) for good, and the nation anticipated a hard stance by the government leader. However, what our “Brave” Prime Minister did was the otherwise. He got the dictation from his western masters to stop the war and leave the army officers fighting in that area with no cover thus giving Indian army every chance to kill Pakistani soldiers brutally.

General Musharraf’s interview to Kamran Khan, on GEO, versus, traitors Bramdagh Bugti and one of his accomplice anti-Pakistani Mehran Baloch, both of whom are sitting comfortably in Geneva. In this interview General Musharraf provides valuable insights on Balochistan, ones worth pondering over, additionally questioning the common sense of these media men, when they offer their national platforms to traitors like Bramdagh. This exposure allows these anti-State elements to propagate their anti-Pakistan stance. One one hand, we have Pakistan’s former Army Chief pleading Balochistan’s case and on the other, double agents of RAW etc gibbering anti-Pakistan non-sense. You choose! Traitors should be condemned and not glorified!Plus, an economic comparison between 2008 and 2012 – an undeniable deterioration !

“Understanding Balochistan” ~ General Pervez Musharraf

Pervez Musharraf
Wednesday, March 14, 2012

It is painful to see what is happening in Balochistan. It is more painful to see accusations being made against the army or the Frontier Corps (FC), Balochistan, or even me, that we were the cause of the problem. Such accusers, who are actually trying to gain political mileage, do not realise how much they are damaging the solidarity and unity of Pakistan.
There also are TV anchors and writers in the print media who with, their half-baked knowledge, cause more damage to the cause of Pakistan. My motivation for writing this article is to remove some misperceptions and distortions and expose the vicious propaganda that is misleading the people of Pakistan on the Balochistan issue.

Balochistan was debated in a US Congressional committee and aspersions were cast on human rights violations. Signs of an ulterior motive of planting seeds of separation were visible. I have always warned of a known foreign hand trying to destabilise Pakistan through Afghanistan and Balochistan. This is now getting serious. Pakistan must take immediate note and tell the US not to encourage anti-Pakistan activity in its highest legislative bodies. It is a pity that human rights violations are not being noticed in Kashmir or Assam in India but are visible only in Balochistan. I strongly reject these planted notions of human rights violations or missing persons in Balochistan as anti-Pakistan designs being promoted by agents provocateurs.

Former President Musharraf to return on Jan 31st

News on Gulf News and Pictures Courtesy: Long Live Musharraf

Dubai: In what appears to be a surprising move, former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf has decided to return to Pakistan earlier than he had announced due to the fast-changing political scene in the country. According to one of his aides, Musharraf will fly back to Pakistan on January 31, 2012, instead of March 23 as was announced by him in a press conference in Dubai earlier this year. A deepening political crisis and the sharp increase in popularity of Imran Khan in Pakistan have ostensibly prompted Musharraf to take this decision. Meanwhile, a senior Pakistan government official has revealed to Gulf News that the Pakistani authorities have clearly conveyed to Musharraf the threats to his life in case of his return.

“We advised him to stay out of the country because there are threats to his life not only from extremist groups but also others who don’t want to see him in Pakistan,” the official said. Former prime minister Benazir Bhuatto, who was assassinated on her return from Dubai in 2007, also faced similar threats and warnings before her return but it was Musharraf, in power at the time, who had warned her. Musharraf, however, has rubbished these threats and is determined to go back. He will be on a tour of the UK, US and Saudi Arabia for the next month to ensure guarantees for his safe return and the launch of his political campaign to contest the next elections.

Pervez Musharraf on ARY’s 11th Hour with Waseem Badami – 30th Nov 2011

Reuters – A senior Pakistani army official has said a NATO cross-border air attack that killed 24 soldiers was a deliberate, blatant act of aggression, hardening Pakistan’s stance on an incident that could hurt efforts to stabilize Afghanistan. Continuing that angry tone, Major General Ishfaq Nadeem, director general of military operations, said NATO forces were alerted they were attacking Pakistani posts but helicopters kept firing, “Detailed information of the posts was already with ISAF (International Security Assistance Force), including map references, and it was impossible that they did not know these to be our posts.  The helicopters appeared near the post around 15 to 20 minutes past midnight, opened fire, then left about 45 minutes later, Nadeem was quoted as saying. They reappeared at 0115 local time and attacked again for another hour, he said. Nadeem said that, minutes before the first attack, a U.S. sergeant on duty at a communications centre in Afghanistan told a Pakistani major that NATO special forces were receiving indirect fire from a location 15 km (9 miles) from the posts.

Musharraf displeased with party structure

27 September 2011Expressing displeasure with the incomplete party structure, former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf has cautioned his the office-bearers of his All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) to streamline party affairs by October. Party sources said the APML chief, who tried to find a way back to power corridors in Pakistan by forming a political party, had been very disappointed with the performance of his stalwarts, who had failed to complete party organisational structure even after hefty investment of time and money.

They said a meeting of APML big wigs held under the chairmanship of party chief Musharraf in Dubai on September 17 and 18 reviewed the party’s performance regarding its membership and organisational structure and Musharraf’s return to Pakistan on March 23 next year.

Musharraf expressed his complete dissatisfaction over the performance of the party stalwarts in Pakistan. The bogus statements of APML leaders about the completion of party organisation further angered Musharraf, who blasted General Secretary Barrister Saif and spokesman Fawad Ch for poor performance. Musharraf also expressed his annoyance with the Chief Coordinator of APML Ch Shahbaz who had showed little interest in party affairs.

Insiders said the party chief also expressed displeasure over sidelining sincere party workers by establishing monopoly by the top office-bearers.

 Pervez Musharraf

Pakistan’s decision to join the US and the Coalition in Afghanistan in their attack on the Taliban remains a subject of intense debate. This is the decision we took after a thorough, deliberate and realistic appraisal of the obtaining geo-strategic realities, but it has drawn criticism and praise alike. With the latest upsurge in terrorist activity in Pakistan, the debate on the post-9/11 response of Pakistan has intensified. I, therefore, thought it my duty to lay bare facts in front of the people of Pakistan, so that with all the necessary information they could judge the situation more accurately. The decision of my government was indeed based on, and in conformity with, my slogan of ‘Pakistan First’.

PIERS MORGAN: Pakistan is one of the United States’ most crucial allies in the war on terror. But now there are tough questions on both sides about that relationship. Joining me now, the one time, perhaps future president of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf. Mr. President, thank you for joining me.

PERVEZ MUSHARRAF, FORMER PRESIDENT OF PAKISTAN: Thank you.

MORGAN: Quite clearly, there is a problem in the relationship between America and Pakistan right now. A lot of it centers around the discovery that Osama bin Laden was living right in the middle of what appeared to be a intelligence compound for all this time. How would you describe the relationship as it stands?

MUSHARRAF: There certainly is a trust deficit, but it has been persisting since the last one year. Not because of OBL alone — Osama alone. There were incidents of mistrust in the past. Therefore, the final culmination was this, that there was total mistrust, and therefore Pakistan was not even told. And as people take it, there was a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty. Therefore, it has led to a lot of more misunderstanding. I think — which is extremely detrimental to the cause of fighting against terror.

Pervez Musharraf on Osama Bin Laden – Collection of Interviews

13 Videos and 6 interviews, of General Musharraf, posted in this article

Pervez Musharraf on Facebook, “The accusation of my having allowed intrusion into Pakistan by US forces chasing Osama Bin Laden is absolutely baseless. Never has this subject even been discussed between myself and President Bush leave aside allowing such freedom of action that would violate our sovereignty.”

Former President General (retired) Pervez Musharraf called the operation by US forces to kill al Qaeda leader and 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad near Islamabad a violation of Pakistani sovereignty.  “America coming to our territory and taking action is a violation of our sovereignty. Handling and execution of the operation (by US forces) is not correct. The Pakistani government should have been kept in the loop,” Musharraf told CNN-IBN in an exclusive interview. “Foreign troops crossing the border into Pakistan will not be liked by the people of Pakistan. US forces should not have crossed over into Pakistan,” he said.
