Biography Pervez Musharraf (Musharraf Pervez)
Pervez Musharraf was born in India, in Delhi, but as a result of the partition of British India in 1947. his family was forced to move to the territory which later (in 1956), officially named the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Although at the time of resettlement Musharraf was in its infancy, . note, . that those tragic events of a single section of the country into two hostile states contributed "to the subcortical level, the formation of his anti-Indian positions, . which is most clearly manifested in the period of preparation and holding of Kargil operations against India in the spring and summer of 1999,
Musharraf received his primary education in Karachi, then graduated from the prestigious college in the KW and 1964. held command positions in the infantry and artillery, persistently and consistently climbing the ladder. Later, he commanded the paratroopers and special forces troops. General - an active participant in two wars against India in 1965 and 1971. For the battle, in which the Pakistani government awarded prizes. Twice he received military training in Britain, and once - in the United States.
The only thing "light" the general, so it links with international terrorists - Saudi billionaire Osama bin Laden. According to Indian sources, this "communication" could serve the purpose of Inter-Services Intelligence of Pakistan, of transferring armed militants on the Indian side. In other words, the spur to greater Laden's "jihad" against India. The general advantage to using Laden in suppressing anti-government protests of a religious sect of Shia in Gilgit in 1988. Then Laden led a group of Pashtun fighters from Afghanistan that killed civilians, burning their homes and farmland.
. It is believed that Musharraf is close to Islamic fundamentalist organizations such as the "Jamaat-i-Islami and Harkat ul-Ansar, dealing mainly militants and weapons in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.
. For the first time the Pakistani general has established communication with Laden in the 80's. When he was preparing a "mujahideen" who fought in Afghanistan against the Soviet army
. Specifying to set the connection Musharraf has received from the then military ruler of Pakistan, General Zia-ul-Haq
. According to some observers, . revolution under the command of Musharraf, . led to the displacement of democratic government in Pakistan and establish its own military regime, . - Is something like "action of despair" at the sight of the, . a country literally drowning in a swamp of corruption and outright theft at the highest level.,
. It is noteworthy that Musharraf had no pre-prepared plan
. Everything happened spontaneously.
It began with the fact that quite unexpectedly President Rafiq Tarar sacked Chief of Staff of Pakistan Army General Pervez Musharraf. It is known that such actions are done only "on the advice of" the Prime Minister. Gen. literally soared into the chair when his plane was returning from Colombo, was denied landing in Karachi. By requiring direct communication with the dispatcher, he said, barely restraining himself, ominously asked: "Interestingly, looks like a man who dares to refuse me landing in Karachi?" Then the "good" landing was given immediately. The incident served as a detonator for Action, General. He realized that something is not satisfied with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, that nothing could save him: not his sterling service to the country, nor his adherence to the orders of Sharif, who often says one thing and then the opposite. The general realized that the civil unbearable, not only him but the whole country, and decided on their own game. Musharraf ordered the intervention of the army and its blocking all major government agencies, including the Presidential Palace, the residence of the Prime Minister and Parliament. The army left the barracks and took control throughout the country, including over the major airports in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad, the state television and radio. At the same time blocking and the residence of the Chief Minister of Punjab province, who is the brother of Pakistani Prime Minister. Then it became known that the Government was dissolved, the Prime Minister is under house arrest, and "lagging" the head of the Pakistani army is preparing an appeal to the nation that has removed all doubt: there was a military coup.
. Within 10 hours after the coup, General Musharraf addressed the nation
. In general there said that the Government's Nawaz Sharif, leading to destabilization, therefore, to avoid full-scale crisis, the military decided to take power into their own hands. The general also urged the population to exercise restraint and calm, especially since "the situation in the country absolutely calm, stable and under control". He also warned that "none of the external forces should not think that it can exploit the situation" (obviously referring primarily India).
. It seemed that for the resignation of General absolutely no reason, especially since just recently renewed for another two years tenure Musharraf led Pakistan's army
. While some tensions between the government and the army is clearly beginning to be felt, . when the military was ordered to leave in July of this year's Kargil sector of Kashmir, . where they were involved, . also not without a government order, . military provocation against India,
. The military were not satisfied: first, they were ordered to conduct an operation, then - abruptly stop her, indirectly, by showing that they "failed".
. Gen. literally soared into the chair when his plane was returning from Colombo, was denied landing in Karachi
. By requiring direct communication with the dispatcher, he said, barely restraining himself, ominously asked: "Interestingly, looks like a man who dares to refuse me landing in Karachi?" Then the "good" landing was given immediately. The incident served as a detonator for Action, General. He realized that something is not satisfied with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, that nothing could save him: not his sterling service to the country, nor his adherence to the orders of Sharif, who often says one thing and then the opposite. The general realized that the civil unbearable, not only him but the whole country, and decided on their own game
. Analysts note that the first action, surprisingly timid for the military, General Musharraf does not talk about his complete confidence in his deed
. It seems that the general enthusiasm, culminating in the coup on 12 October, was indeed a gust. And now he is desperately searching for ways to ensure that does not appear in the eyes of the world military dictator in the classical performance. He seems to understand what is at stake is the future of Pakistan, who simply has no means of livelihood, since almost all of them come from external sources.
. Unlike most of its predecessors, the current chief military administrator of Pakistan has never sought publicity and always "just doing my job well"
. Therefore, the details of his biography is not yet known to the general public. Moreover, the Pakistani military, for that matter, and the military of other countries of the Commonwealth, never allowed to do something else besides his professional duties in active service. Principle: or razglagolstvuesh, or work - the dominant among the military of the quenching.
. However, General Musharraf has attracted the attention not only because it was a military coup led by the 140 millionth of an Islamic state, which last year became the owner of nuclear weapons
. That would be too easy. World now, . can say, . surprised, . that General, . Chief of the armed forces, . people strong and hard, . not go to the imposition of martial law, . did not arrest opponents, . prohibit the democratic institutions, . Finally, . not hang the Prime Minister, . as did one of his military predecessors, Zia ul-Haq, on the contrary, . Musharraf keeps pausing, . thinking, . what to do next.,
. Shortly before the coup, . happened on October 12, . General Pervez Musharraf, . 58-year-old Chief of Staff of the Army, . was appointed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to the highest military should - he became chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (OKNSH),
. It happened on September 29. Before that, a year after the forced resignation from the post of General Jahangir Karamata, he served as chairman OKNSH.
. In fact, Pervez Musharraf, as witnessed by colleagues, a man reputed to be tough and resolute, but he is a man who thinks that long decided, but by adopting it, will never retreat
. This, incidentally, one of the reasons for its popularity in the Pakistani army.
The hope that a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel in connection with the establishment of martial law in Pakistan, is in this paradoxical situation. At a time when the whole world unanimously condemned Musharraf that forced the civilian government, Pakistan itself had simply rejoices. Pakistanis welcome the arrival of Musharraf and Nawaz Sharif's curse. Yes, there were mass demonstrations in Karachi and Islamabad. But only in support of Musharraf. And, most importantly, they were quite natural. Obviously, the Pakistanis know better, that better for them. I think also that hardly appropriate hysteria in some media raised in connection with the Pakistani nuclear tests last year. It seems that the military is better than anybody else, understand all the consequences of use of nuclear weapons. In any case, I'd like to hope.
