A special court in Pakistan sentenced the former ruler #Musharraf to death for high treason. In this thread, I will recall history and will try to figure out the contributions of a leader who ruled this country for like 10 years. #DGISPR #Musharraf
#Musharraf and #NawazSharif presided over Pakistan's nuclear tests in May 1998, conducted in response to similar Indian tests.
Pakistan's economic stability was presided by #Musharraf and brought up lines of foreign credit that fueled a bankrupt economy.

Slow afternoon.
Let me pass this time by doing a short photo thread on my new favourite hashtag - #RunawayPakArmy!
Apparently, two majors have been removed from Pak Army for 'misconduct'.
Timing of removal is rather unfortunate, though - when they're getting pounded on the LoC!
From the 1971 war - Bhag gaye Khaki Wale!
Their most practiced war maneuver - Hathiyar bar Zameen!

#Pakistan should de-link #Palestine & #Kashmir, and #Israel/#India, in its foreign policy dictionary.

The foreign policy overhaul should cover this subject smartly, rationally, and with focus on maximizing #Islamabad's gains and limiting losses. /1

We in #Pakistan have grown used to casually mentioning #Palestine/#Kashmir & #Israel/#India in a way that hurts our position, limits our options, and leads us to inaccurate conclusions and policy positions. It's more emotion and less logic. /2

#Palestine & #Kashmir are two different conflicts/disputes legally & politically, with separate trajectories, solutions & end results. Pal/Isr reached peace agreement & recognized each other in 1994; differ now on implementation. Kashmir is invasion/occupation/annexation./3

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.
