  1. Musharraf did alot of good things when he first tookover from Nawaz Shareef but as the time went on he started becoming worse and worse by doing things which he shouldnt as the president. In the last period of his presidency he took pakistan to the verge of distruction and whatever is happening now is because of him. He has to face the law now and he must be thought a lesson so that our future politicions learn a lesson from him.
