Ex-leader Musharraf sets return to Pakistan

Five years after he resigned as Pakistan's president and left the South Asian nation, Gen. Pervez Musharraf will return to the country intent on leading his party in upcoming elections, he announced Saturday.

Musharraf plans to fly on a commercial airline into Karachi on March 24, then attend a rally attended by 50,000 people including more than 200 Pakistani expatriates from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates, he said in a statement.

But whether the rest of Pakistan welcomes him back, including the authorities now heading the country, remains to be seen.

  2. It is My Promise that....

    People of Pakistan, let me say this – your days of misery are over, I am returning back to Pakistan; I am bringing lots and lots of money with me to jump start Pakistan's failed economy. I promise everyone in Pakistan will get at least one meal a day, and they and they will have access to public bathrooms. Long live Pakistan.

    Musharraf, son of Pakistan.

    It worked out well for him. Bush was talked out of killing him and he was not in power or in country when Bin Laden was killed. The Talib don't want miss up because he will send the military into NW if he is PM or Pres again. It was his allies in the ISI and military that led to the offensives in the FATA to create a situation in which he would return as the savior of Pakistan. Which worked well for the US that wanted operations in the FATA got everything except NW. I never said do this in my opinion this will happen after you leave. There is a difference.
