Musharraf’s dilemma

General (Retd) Pervez Musharraf considers himself a leader of the nation while living abroad. Thats a strange idea as he was complete out of step when he was running the country by usurping power.

A usurper cannot be considered a legitimate ruler. A leader is the person whom the people elect, and thus, pose their confidence in him. This is something Gen Pervez Musharraf lacks and he must understand this, but being a boot he does not know what popularity and election is. Thats his dilemma.
