So Musharraf is coming back. What's new? Why am I so disappointed in the PUBLIC support of this man? Have we forgotten everything? Each and every one of our values? Ideology? Morals? Integrity? That we can actually look forward to HIS return, and his political party to succeed in the next General Elections.
I don't care if he's apologising. This isn't a personal scandal he's guilty of. I don't at all care if he was a DICTATOR, and has now miraculously turned a golden new leaf, and is now back to the democratic process. I also don't care whether he is better than the current head of state. No, these are all false reasons for wanting his return!
Have we forgotten this?

So have we really forgotten this gruesome piece of work, headed by this man who is so innocently apologizing to the nation? Can you really say ''sorry'' for killing women and children, [not counting innocent men... ] ? How can you expect to get away with this?
Have we forgotten her? The man responsible for ''selling out on his own country men AND women" is saying... SORRY? Can he bring her back? Can he reverse the 86 year sentence handed down to her? Can he atone for the abuse she suffered? And most importantly, can he provide a SINGLE shard of evidence against her, due to which he SOLD HER OUT in the first place?
Are we blind, or we CHOOSE not to see????
I can go on here. The man admitted so himself in his book, that he DID sell out his own people for dollars. After doing that, he merrily goes away (resigns, yeah yeah) and earns more dollars lecturing folks .. (on what? How to sell your souls for money?). Then one fine day, he says he's completed his ban period of two years, and now it's time to return to glory.
Do we recall a certain ''air strike'' on a madressah in Bajaur Agency - the very first ever of this kind? And we all thought ''What? A missile strike! But by WHO?" and speculations arose, that this was the work of a foreign drone attack. Later, the army denied completely that any drone had entered Pakistani airspace, and we all thought, okayyy, so our sovereignty wasn't destroyed, but why were the kids hit? 80 PLUS kids passed away in this huge huge attack! And THEN, the story unfolded. It WAS the work of a drone hit. And the Pakistani army was under orders to allow it. Who was the man in charge? Who had given the order in the first place....?
US drone strike kills 27 in Bajaur
Published: October 25, 2009
The last paragraph of this article is what's relevant here:
Political administration of the Bajaur tribal region has confirmed the US drone strike but said they could not give any casualty figure since the area was under the militants’ control. This is the fourth missile strike by American drones on Damadola. Eighteen people, including 14 members of one family, were killed when a residential compound was hit on Jan 13, 2006, in Damadola.
It was hit again by a pilotless Predator on Oct 30, 2006, killing 82 people, many children among them. At least 12 people were killed in a Hellfire missile strike on Damadola on May 14, 2008.
Finally, I have just this to say... Each one of us, if alive and reading this, have a responsibility, and a duty to fulfil. Duties can be fulfilled socially, but the political aspect should never be forgotten by all individuals, as this is the path where real change can be brought about. So be aware of whatever goes on, and as for the case of Musharraf returning and trying to become Pakistan's next 'leader' in the current scenario...your input will be counted. He's spent a lot of money getting his share of ''fans'' on Facebook. He has tried to ''reach out'' to the masses. Whether you're ''reachable'' and easily ''influenced'' by his sorries and thank yous right now...
