PESHAWAR, 3 August: Former president General (Retd) Pervez Musharraf said on Wednesday that Pakistan made development during the military governments, while civilian governments ruined the country.

In an interview with BBC from Dubai, Musharraf said all the martial laws in the country were imposed due to compulsion of circumstances. He said he had sent the Nawaz Sharif government packing over the people’s repeated demands. He said the people have no concern with democracy, monarchy or communism – they only want prosperity, jobs, security and development.

The former military ruler said a comparative study of the past governments in Pakistan will make it clear that Pakistan prospered during military rules. He said former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was mainly responsible for dismemberment of Pakistan, while General Yahya Khan was also partly responsible. Musharraf said Pakistan made record development during the 10-year rule of General Ayub Khan.

He said General Ziaul Haq made correct decision of supporting the US against Russia in the Afghan war. He rejected allegations that the military accumulated wealth during the Afghan war. He said Constitution is sacred, but people of the country are even more important, and Constituent can be ignored a little bit for the betterment of the country. He said people have the right to remove a government, but conditions in Pakistan are different.
