Taliban threatens to assassinate Musharraf if he returns to Pakistan


The Pakistani Taliban on Saturday threatened to assassinate former military ruler Pervez Musharraf when he returns to the country to contest elections after nearly five years in self-imposed exile.

"We have prepared a special squad of suicide bombers for Musharraf," Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told . "They will attack Musharraf after he arrives Pakistan."


The 69-year-old escaped three assassination attempts when in office from 1999 to 2008, a target of Islamist extremists because of his alliance in the US-led "war on terror" and attempts to clamp down on militants.

In a video released by Taliban,Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said  "The mujahideen of Islam have prepared a special squad  of suicide bombers, snipers to send Musharraf to hell. "

Further added "The Pakistani Taliban is fully prepared to deal with this pharoah. If God is willing, we will give this devil what he deserves and give satisfaction to the victims of the Red Mosque.


 Musharraf is due to fly into Karachi, his home town and Pakistan's largest city of 18 million which is suffering from record levels of violence linked to ethnic and political tensions,on Sunday

The statement came on Saturday after Musharraf said he would return to Pakistan to contest historic elections in May and that he was prepared to risk any danger to his life.

Taliban seek revenge for the atrocities committed at Lal Masjid

About 20,000, Talibans has vowed to take revenge on President Musharraf for the siege on Lal Masjid. “We beg Allah to destroy Musharraf and we will seek revenge for the atrocities committed at Lal Masjid,” Maulvi Faqir Mohammed said.

Militants were enraged when Musharraf ordered  a full-scale assault on Red Mosque (Lal Masjid)in July 2007 after followers of radical clerics running a Taliban-style movement from there refused to surrender.

Operation Silence was disowned by the ruling PML-Q government. Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam’s Maulana Fazlur Rehman was reprimanded by the madrassa network into opposing it.

Former military ruler Musharraf said he would definitely return home Sunday to contest historic elections in May, and that he was prepared to risk any danger to his life.

"Two hundred percent! I am travelling back on Sunday to Pakistan," he said in Dubai, where he has divided his time with London since stepping down as head of state in August 2008. "I will go by land, air or sea,whatever... even to the peril of my life this is the oath I took for the country,"said the former army chief of staff.
He made the remarks  in Dubai just hours after a Pakistani court granted him protective bail in a string of legal cases, paving the way for his return from nearly five years in exile without the risk of immediate

Musharraf, who seized power in 1999 and left the country after stepping down in 2008, is wanted in Pakistan forconspiracy to murder and illegally arresting judges.

The outgoing government led by the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) always insisted that Musharraf would be arrested should be return to the country and last year he delayed a planned homecoming after being threatened with detention.
A parliamentary committee could later Friday agree ona candidate to head up an interim government which will rule during the election campaign.

   "There will be no arrest or anything," Musharraf said."I decided I will go back whatever the judgment (in court) butthe judgment is favourable," he said.
