Where will Pervez Musharraf’s funeral be held today?

It is known that the former president of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf has passed away. The last rites will be held in Karachi on Tuesday. All arrangements have been completed at the military cantonment area, but Musharraf’s body is yet to arrive in a special flight from Dubai. Hence the burial may be delayed. Sources said that no time has been fixed for the arrival of the dead body, but all arrangements have been made. According to The Express Tribune, he will be laid to rest at the Old Army Cemetery in Karachi on Tuesday.

The body of the former military ruler was supposed to arrive at the Karachi airport on Monday afternoon, but the arrival of the body was delayed due to a delay in NOC procedures between the Pakistan Mission in the UAE and the Pakistan government. A Foreign Office official said that Pakistan’s mission in UAE is in touch with Musharraf’s family members and providing them all facilities. Pervez Musharraf passed away in Dubai on Sunday after suffering from illness for some time.

In self-imposed exile for the past few years

Musharraf was the main factor behind the Kargil war between India and Pakistan in 1999. He has been living in self-imposed exile in the United Arab Emirates since 2016 to avoid criminal cases against him in Pakistan. Musharraf is suffering from a rare disease called amyloidosis. In this disease, a protein called amyloid builds up in organs and tissues throughout the body. He was treated at the American Hospital in Dubai for a long time.
