Musharraf was born on 11 August 1943 in Delhi. He took over as Chief Executive after the imposition of martial law in Pakistan in 1999 and was the President of Pakistan from 2007 to 2008.
Former President of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf has passed away. Musharraf was ill for a long time and was being treated in Dubai. Pervez Musharraf was called a military dictator who, being the army chief, had staged a coup in the country and declared martial law in the entire country at gunpoint. You will also be surprised to know that Musharraf was also sentenced to death by the court.
A special court in Pakistan found Musharraf guilty of treason in December 2019 and then sentenced him to death. The court accepted that Musharraf had committed treason by bypassing the country’s constitution. In fact, in Pakistan on October 12, 1999, Musharraf ousted Nawaz Sharif from the power of Pakistan by a military coup.
declared himself president
After being ousted from power, Musharraf declared himself the country’s president in 2001. The feat didn’t stop here, on 3 November 2007, Pervez Musharraf suspended the country’s constitution while declaring emergency in Pakistan. This was the period when Musharraf fully entered politics. Within a few months, Musharraf appointed General Ashfaq Kayani as the army chief. He himself was sworn in as the President of Pakistan on 23 November 2007.
When Musharraf was blacklisted
After this the matter reached the Supreme Court. In 2009, the Supreme Court ruled that the emergency imposed by Musharraf was illegal. After this, in 2013, the Sharif government accused Musharraf of treason. After this, the trial of the case went on for about six years and many times it happened that Musharraf did not attend the hearing. After this, the government put Musharraf on the no-fly list for fear of running away abroad.
fled to dubai on the pretext of treatment
Even after this, somehow in the year 2016, Musharraf got permission to go abroad for treatment. After this there was no return to Pakistan. On the other hand, according to the instructions of the Supreme Court, the hearing of the case continued in the special court and on 17 December 2019, the court sentenced Musharraf to death in the case of treason.
