I can never even imagine that Pak Army will be against me: Musharraf
Former president Pervez Musharraf, who launched his own political party last year in a bid to return to Pakistan politics, has said he can “never even imagine” that the army will stand up against him.
When asked if he expected support from the army, All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) head said the military was not supposed to become involved in politics.
“However, having said that, I have been in this army for over 40 years … the troops and the whole army knows me … I can never even imagine that this army which I have served for 40 years will be against me,” The News quoted Musharraf, as saying.
“I am very sure they will be supportive, but if you are meaning active support against other political parties, no, I am not expecting that; it would undermine the whole process,” he added.
Although Musharraf declined to fix a date for his return to Pakistan, he said he aimed to establish APML offices in all the provinces of the country by March, adding that he would build up support for his party first.
