Exclusive Interview Gen (R) Pervez Musharraf with Dr. Moeed Pirzada – 29th December 2013

Gen. Musharraf’s famous interview on Express News on 29th Dec, 2013. This was Moeed Pirzada’s first program after joining Express News. It was arranged by Express’s MD, Yousaf Baig Mirza and quite contrary to popular belief the first time Moeed Pirzada ever met retired General. Moeed Pirzada starts by asking Gen. Musharraf, “What were the most difficult moments of your life: 9/11 when you had to side with America against Taliban; October 1999 when you removed an elected PM, Nawaz Sharif; 03 Nov 2007 when you imposed emergency and detained judges of Supreme Court or now December 2013 when Nawaz Govt has decided to indict you for treason?”. This fast paced discussion at an important juncture of Pakistani history will assume archival value for students of Pakistani history and politics. What Musharraf said about role of Gen Kiyani, of Ex-Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudry and what Asif Ali Zardari is upto when he says “Billa phans gaya hay, isay janay na dain” Who is the billa? Is billa: Pervaiz Musharraf or Billa is Pakistan Army? How Musharraf reflects on the media he empowered? and much more.
