So, Mushy Goes

So, Mushy finally gave in to all the pressure and decided to leave his post before they put him on trial. Let's make one thing clear folks, I used to be a die-hard Musharraf supporter back in his early days because the country enjoyed a lot of stability in those days, and in turn, we made great strides economically. All this talk of impeachment just puts a wry smile on my face. Sure, I have left no stone unturned in speaking out against Mushy on several occassions -his insidious emergency plus action, his approval of NRO, his support for MQM in their inhumane display of strength, his dismissal of Chief Justice among others. But the fact of the matter remains, the very people that are governing right now are far worse than Mr. Mushy himself and if anybody must be put on trial, it is these very goons. They've looted hundreds and millions of dollars worth of state wealth, not to mention distributed acres of land amongst themselves, which is partly the reason they are yet to restore the judges. Justice, apparently, cannot prevail in this country because if it did, it would open a door that would reveal 60 odd years of rampant, unabated corruption by the people in power!

Musharraf sahib, you gave us some real good years, but then you turned into something I did not like. I don't know what it was - the lust for power, the support of America or maybe something else. But some of your actions just defied belief - even if they were under your much-publicized slogan of "Pakistan First" (which I do wholeheartedly agree with tbh).

I would like to see you given a fair trial, but not before the very people you've forgiven via that hideous NRO bill.

ya dude.I had same opinion about our former Mr.President.
His biggest hope shttering act was bringing back all looters back into the country again.
Its worst of all acts. :(

Everyone does good and bad, in the end you judge him by finding out which column has the more weight. I think his first 7 years were immacualte while the last year and a half was strained.

His list of goods overweigh that of any other ruler in Pakistan (in my view).

Since he is history now, the future, however, does look bleak with the dacoits vying for the seat of president.

If he had lust for power, he would have used 58-2(b). He had the support of all armed forces. Instead he chose to resign.

Plus he can still be tried. He has not run away from trial.

yeah he left, but we must admit that he was a brave leader who faced both internal and external crises at the same time.
Now lets see that what government elected by people could do for them.

I see where everyone is coming and I do agree with them, but then there are too many blips about him that we'll never know about e.g., the missing persons' case (and them coming back to say they were picked up out of nowhere), the sugar crisis, the acceptance of blame whenever US drones attacked pakistani soil etc. etc. The list goes on and on. Questions like these just mounted the pressue on him, and with CJ being as bold as he had ever been, Mushy days were always going to be numbered. He says he did it for the national interest of course, but we'll never know the inside story will we? Not for some years
