Pervez seeks support to launch own party
Power is such a magical potion that once experienced cannot be forgotten. Only departure from this heavenly Earth can detach one from the unending desire. This is amply visible in the case of Parvez Musharraf, the self-created former president of the turmoil-laden Pakistan. He came to the power through force and remained in the saddle as long as he could use his influence, and eventually forced to leave the chair as well as the country for fear of prosecution. The self-exiled former president is a rich man through corrupt practices like all other Pakistani leaders and is based in London away from the hustle bustle of the country. Money, material comfort, and so-called other desires are available aplenty for him, yet he cannot live in peace, as his eyes are fixed in the past warmth of power constantly.
In spite of getting immunity from the government, he does not dare to come back to his motherland. This shows the presence of dirty specks in his mind that does not allow him to take the risk. The country with loads of abrupt revenge in the past is enough for him to think first in gathering support politically, and then the question of returning would arise.
He is now busy cobbling up his old friends, whom he once extended lesser power under him to form a new political party for playing a new dirty game. The man, who opposed tooth and nail the restoration of democracy in his self-imposed leadership, now wants to enter into the power corridor through democratic politics. Musharraf could not achieve any significant target for the country during his long eight years period; rather he earned enough bad names through his brutal forceful activities being both the President and the Army Chief simultaneously. With no regard to the constitution of the country, he amended rules as per his choice that only benefited him.
Keeping all this in mind, the people of Pakistan should reject him straight way, if at all he is successful in his new endeavor.
He met his lawyers and political friends of the past in Dubai recently to weigh out the possibilities of forming the new political outfit and its viability. The men on whom he confides his faith are Rashid Qureshi, Chaudhry Shujjat Hussein, Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, Humayon Akhtar, Khuseed Mahmoud Kasauri, Salim Said Ali, and Arbab Ghulam Rahim. All these people either are big shots at one time in his ruling period or estranged from other political parties like PML-N.
The pattern of Pakistan politics has not changed since its inception. Not a single leader the country got, who could bring healthy atmosphere in the administration of running the country. The people of the country are unfortunate.
