Emotional Letter Penned by Musharraf for son Bilal Surfaces Online: Report

Bilal Musharraf, the child of previous president General (retired) Pervez Musharraf, on Tuesday shared a passionate letter that the previous president had sent him in 1994.

As per a report in Urdu every day Jang, the letter had contained carrer advice for Bilal. The child of the previous president has since erased the post, for reasons not promptly clear.

The letter, dated July 18, 1994, was written when the previous president was posted as Director General Military Operations in the Pakistan Army, as per Jang.

In the letter, Musharraf exhorted his child to keep up truth and genuineness at an elevated expectation in his work. The letter called for intensity in basic leadership and staying away from nervousness as well.

According to Jang, Musharraf asked his son to take quick decisions and be humble and sympathise with the needy and the helpless. In the letter, the former president stressed that confidence was key in life. 

A special court had last week convicted Musharraf for high treason and handed him the death penalty on five counts. The case against the former president related to the imposition of emergency rule in Pakistan in 2007.

The three-member bench which heard the case comprised Justice Waqar Ahmad Seth of the Peshawar High Court, Justice Nazar Akbar of the Sindh High Court and Justice Shahid Karim of the Lahore High Court.

In the 2-1 guilty verdict issued, Justice Nazar Akbar had dissented from the conviction, while the other two judges found Musharraf guilty and sentenced him to death.
