Islamabad: Former Pakistan President and retired Military Chief Pervez Musharraf passed away today after a prolonged illness at an American hospital in Dubai. He was 79.

Family sources said that the former four-star General succumbed to Amyloidosis. He was reportedly hospitalised for a couple of weeks due to a complication of his ailment. Musharraf’s family had last year tweeted from his official account that ‘recovery is not possible.’

Musharraf was born in Delhi during the British rule and raised in Karachi and Istanbul. He became the tenth President of Pakistan after a successful Military coup in 1999. He served as the 10th Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) of Pakistan from 1998 to 2001 and the 7th top General from 1998 to 2007.

The former military ruler was declared a fugitive in former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto murder case and Red Mosque cleric killing case. He was also facing treason charges for suspending the Constitution in 2007. There’s no official communication on whether his mortal remains will be brought back to Pakistan.

    Hey @Amar etc..
    Keep posting that nonsensical link.
    The SOM is a paper which Mr Ganapathy assured when it started that it will bring news focused on Mysore, as there was no newspaper that was dedicated to reporting news about Mysore.
    Now the SOM, reports the death of this thug, as if residents in Mysore care!
    But then the SOM must have thought about Muslims-thousands of them living ion Mysore like Javeeed Nayeed, who think Pakistanis are their cousins, and hence the report.
