FORMER PAKISTAN'S MILITARY RULER PERVEZ MUSHARRAF DIES

ISLAMABAD, PAKISATAN (FEBRUARY 06. 2023): Pakistan's exiled former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, who became a key United States ally during the " WAR ON TERROR", died in a Dubai hospital on Sunday aged 79 after a long illness.


Musharraf seized power in a 1999 bloodless coup and was acting simultaneously as Pakisatan's army chief, chief executive, and president when the 9/11 attacks on the United States took place.


The general twice suspended the constitution and was accused of rigging a referendum shoring up his power, as well as rampant rights abuses including rounding up opponents during his nearly nine-year rule.


Nonetheless, he became Washington's chief regional ally during their invasion of neighbouring Afghanistan.


The decision - made after the United States issued a "FOR US OR AGAINST UNITED STATES" ultimatum - put him in the crosshairs of Islamist militant, who made several attempts on his life.


But it also earned Pakistan a huge influx of foreign aid which bolstered the economy.


RARE ILLNESS

In Pakistan, where the military remains supremely powerful and enjoys significant support, Musharraf is a divisive figure.


" There was good in him," 69-year-old Naemm UI Haq Satti told AFP in an Islamabad marketplace.


" But his one act, which will be remembered throughout history, was he violated the constitution," the retired civil servant added. " The most important thing a country has is its constitution."


Musharraf had been suffering from a rare disease known as Amyloidosis and last summer his family said he had no prospect of recovery.


Senior military chiefs " express heartfelt condolences on sad demise of General Pervez Musharraf", a brief statement released by the military's media wing said Saturday.


The four-star general died in hospital in Dubai on Sunday morning, according to media reports and a senior security official.
