Rumors circulated last night of President Musharraf being dead and people got really concerned
General Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan’s infamous military dictator and former president has been in and out of the news due to his recent health conditions. He has allegedly been diagnosed of a rare disease called amyloidosis, due to which broken protein starts getting deposited in various organs.
Earlier this month President Musharraf was shifted to a hospital as an “emergency” in Dubai and had been advised complete bed rest by doctors till his recovery
All Pakistan Muslim League’s Overseas President Afzaal Siddiqui disclosed that the disease had “weakened his nervous system,” when the former president was first diagnosed. Upon his full recovery, he intended to return to Pakistan.
Yesterday, President Musharraf was allegedly again admitted to the ICU in Dubai following his critical condition.
