Pervez Musharraf : A villain or a hero? Pak netizens react to the demise of the dictator

The family of the former Pakistan President confirmed on Sunday that he had passed away.

For some, the ex-military ruler of Pakistan was an able administrator, a person with a modern outlook who tried to de-radicalise Pakistani society, while for others, he was a villain. The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) issued a statement immediately after the death of the President. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf senior leader Fawad Hussain extended his sympathies to the family of the former president. I hope God has mercy on him.

Others questioned the legacy of the 'dictator' who was the main architect of Kargil war.

A video clip has been shared by a journalist in which a man can be heard talking about Osama Bin Laden.

The Pakistan Muslim League led government was criticized for not having a state funeral.

It's not surprising that Pakistan's PM didn't say anything about being given a state funeral, even though he offered his sympathies in a social media post.

I offer my deepest sympathies to the family of Pervez. Shehbaz urged the departed soul to rest in peace.

Shoaib said, "Just came to know about Gen Pervez Musharraf passing away, my deepest sympathies to his family and many prayers for him." Pakistan has lost one of the best leaders of all time, and the last military dictator of Pakistan has not been held accountable for his actions.

In September of last year, it was revealed that Gen Musharraf was sick. He was diagnosed with amyloidosis a month later. He was admitted to the hospital in March of 2019.
