Musharraf: emergency rule and tv off
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency rule in an attempt to reassert his flagging authority against challenges from Islamist militants, a hostile judiciary and political rivals.
Guess what was the first thing he did after imposing emergency rule
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Most private Pakistan news channels were taken off the air on Saturday following the imposition of emergency rule by President Pervez Musharraf.
The plug was pulled as leading opposition figure Imran Khan appealed to Pakistanis to come out on the streets to protest General Musharraf's action.
