“I will not let my country commit suicide,” says General Pervez Musharraf
in an address
to the nation, after declaring Martial Law
, in Pakistan, yesterday night. Benazir Bhutto
, who had earlier returned to the country to a large reception (and whose convoy was later attacked
) along with former Prime Minister Nawaz Shariff
, have condemned the act.
Two-time Former Pakistani PM, Benazir Bhutto Returns After 8 years.
The leader of a Pakistan's most progressive and liberal political party
, but tarnished by serious corruption and money laundering charges
, Benazir Bhutto landed in Karachi today welcomed by thousands
, reminiscent of her return to take on a previous military dictator in 1986
. Bhutto has recently lost popularity because she has sought a deal
with General Musharraf and tried to obtain an amnesty
from corruption charges. Can she use her thunderous return
to overcome such setbacks and lead the second largest Muslim country again?
