Pakistan: Former President Pervez Musharraf landed on Karachi Airport
Islamabad: The former Pakistani President and Ex-military chief of the country Pervez Musharraf 69, who ruled the country from 1999 to 2008 landed on Karachi airport on sunday.
The former head of the state and President All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Pervez Musharraf will address a large gathering on the airport . Reportedly, a slight change in his programme for addressing the large public gathering and will now address the public at Karachi Airport, earlier it was announced that his party will hold a mega public gathering at Quaid-e-Azam’s tomb that has been modified now.
The recent decision to change the venue for addressing his supporters and party activists by President APML, Pervez Musharraf has been made keeping in view the cancellation of Non-Objection Certificate (NOC) by the provincial government for holding a public congregation at Quaid-e-Azam’s tomb.
Another reason being cited as a reason behind changing venue is the recent video warning by the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in which they vowed to target the former President and have mentioned their death squads for the purpose led by Adnan Rasheed, a former PAF absconder who was arrested twice earlier for life attempts on Musharraf .
At-least one hundred journalists from Pakistan and international news organizations have traveled along with former President Musharraf through a commercial- not a chartered plane- Emirates Airlines flight from Dubai. Around 150 supporters and leaders from his political party All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) have also accompanied him to Karachi.
