Musharraf Bashing

Musharraf bashing has suddenly acquired a renewed hype in the media -more in the electronic than the print – ever since he announced entering into Pakistan politics. The interested parties and their cronies are busy day and night in slinging mud upon him and his ‘dictatorial’ rule of nine years. Use of negative superlatives like “not at all”,“nothing what so ever”,“ruination of the entire economy” etc. are being used profusely, incorrectly and illogically more because of a fad than fact.. Ironically, some of the saner element, intellectuals and knowledgeable too have succumbed to the propaganda and lost sight of the realilty.

No doubt Musharraf made mistakes – some blunders, but to say that nothing at all positive for Pakistan was achieved by him and his regime, is unfair.

Following are, therefore, just to recount some of his achievements:-
