All Pakistan Muslim League - Past, Present & Future
Though the word ‘Muslim League’ still held great prestige but very unfortunately the ‘Name Muslim League’ has been used and abused so many times that todays generation does not even know which is the true Muslim League. Its importance has reduced, rendering it insignificant in the political arena due to poor performance of many until All Pakistan Muslim League came into being under the able leadership of President Pervez Musharraf.
All Pakistan Muslim League (Pervez Musharraf)
All Pakistan Muslim League (or APML), founded in 2010 by former Army Chief & President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf and supporters breaking away from the PML-Q and PMLN.
Pervez Musharraf is the only president in the post 70 era of Pakistan who has delivered despite all odds. Following graph will give you and over all idea of what is being done in the last 60 years of the history of this poor country.
The Former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf, returned to Pakistan on 24th March 2013. Despite living a comfortable life abroad and knowing he had many enemies in Pakistan and knowing he would have to face multiple politically motivated cases in the courts, Mr. Musharraf decided to return to Pakistan and fight in the court all of the charges levelled against him.
Along with this, Mr. Musharraf intended to pursue a political career in Pakistan with the aim of contesting the upcoming general elections on 11th May 2013.
Upon his arrival, two unfortunate and blatantly unfair episodes have transpired:
1. Mr. Musharraf’s appearance in the court before judges who are known to be his sworn enemies, who openly misuse the law against Mr. Musharraf, who have maintained a scornful, rude, sarcastic and condescending attitude in the court room, and who have put Mr. Musharraf in a life threatening situation in every court appearance. The higher Judiciary led by Iftikhar Chaudhry is seen to be highly politicised, practising extreme activism and denying
Mr. Musharraf a fair trial. Mr. Musharraf is now under house arrest and has been denied the right to meet his lawyers and family members.
2. Illegal, undemocratic and unfair means to deny Mr. Musharraf – a free Pakistani citizen who has not been convicted in any court of law – to contest elections and conduct his political campaign in the country. More than 300 candidates contesting elections on the ticket of the APML, Mr. Musharraf’s party, have been robbed from the opportunity to conduct their election campaign being led by their Party Chairman. In sharp contrast, known convicts, corrupt individuals and extremist terrorists have been cleared to contest elections by the Election Commission.
