Fake News Alert: APML rejects news of passing away of Chief Musharraf

All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) has denied all rumours of death of its founder, former ruler president General (R) Pervez Musharraf.

“General Pervez Musharraf is at home, a little unwell but completely aware as normal,” APML Overseas President Ifzaal Siddique stated.

Siddique remarked, “Just pray for his health.”

Musharraf’s family confirmed that he is not on a ventilator in a tweet posted on his official account. He has been admitted to the hospital and his organs are deteriorating, according to them.

Later the news of Death was denied by Chief organiser APML Choudhry Mohammad Ilyas Gujjar As well.

The former president has been in the hospital for the past three weeks “due to a complication of his illness (Amyloidosis),” according to his family.

He is going through a difficult stage where recovery is not possible and organs are malfunctioning. Pray for ease in his daily living,” family said.

The announcement comes following online allegations that the retired general had been placed on a ventilator.

Musharraf seized power in a bloodless coup in 1999 after then-prime minister Nawaz Sharif attempted to replace him as army chief, despite the fact that he had been selected above more senior officers a year before.

When the 9/11 attacks on the United States occurred, the four-star general was controlling Pakistan as a “chief executive,” and he quickly united with Washington during its military incursion in neighbouring Afghanistan.

He presided over a period of economic prosperity during his more than seven years in government, despite surviving at least three assassination attempts.
