ISLAMABAD: Former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf is writing another book titled “Why I returned to Pakistan”, sources told this news agency.
Sources quoted him as saying that “as the country was facing volatile situation, which the rulers seemed to be helpless in controlling hence I decided to return to Pakistan ostensibly to salvage the country out of crises”. The book, to make its entry into market soon, also entails Musharraf’s interaction with various global leaders and his close associates who have known to have advised him against returning to Pakistan.
In his book, Musharraf would highlight the reasons of returning to Pakistan despite the threatening attitude of Taliban and political pressure.Former president Musharraf is currently interned at his farm house, which has been legally converted as a sub-jail, while undergoing trials for numerous indictments, which include the Benazir murder case, Akbar Bugti murder case, and illegal confinement of judiciary. There were earlier speculations about Musharraf’s possible slipping out of the country, after the victory of Nawaz Sharif in 2013 general elections.
