Just yesterday the death sentence of former Army Chief and President of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf for treason charges, given by a special court of 3 members, divided the entire nation.
The detailed verdict will come out in the next 24 hours. Former President’s political party All Pakistan Muslim League will take necessary steps against the verdict after consulting the legal team, on behalf of Musharraf.
Some called it a historical decision and others expressed their support for former army chief. Social media users bombarded the internet with their responses on the verdict. Not late enough many big names from Lollywood, Pakistani drama industry and A-list personalities of Pakistan jumped on the bandwagon to express their support for Pervez Musharraf.
First, to express support was our Tamgha-e-Imtiaz recipient, Mehwish Hayat who even posted a tweet a few days ago urging the nation to give the former leader a chance to speak.
She stated in her latest tweet; “A very famous Irish Soldier, Thomas Francis Meagher said… “The treason of which I stand convicted loses all its guilt has been sanctified as a duty and will be ennobled as a sacrifice.” #Musharraf #MusharrafVerdict”

Veena Malik also didn’t hesitate either
She said: “The man who lifted us all, the man who cared for all, the man who gave the middle class an opportunity to rise is declared traitor today. What a joke!! #Musharraf is Pakistan and Pakistan is Musharraf.”

Ali Gul Pir has always been very blunt with his views
Hum kerain toh ghadaar, tum kero toh "he can never be a traitor"
Hum kerain toh we must respect the judiciary, tum kero toh "decision bring anguish" #2Laws1Country

Amir Liaquat has his own way of expressing his views
کسی محب وطن کو آپ غدار کہہ دیں !
جنگیں لڑنے والے کو آپ غدار کہہ دیں!
موت کی آنکھوں میں آنکھیں ڈال کر ملک بچانے والے کو آپ غدار کہہ دیں
تو اس وقت وہ صرف بیمار نہیں کہلائے گا
وہ ٹوٹ چکاہوگا
بکھر گیا ہوگا
مجھےمشرف صاحب کے جذبات کا اندازہ نہیں
لیکن جانتا ہوں غدار لفظ کا کیااثرہوتا ہے

The ace designer Khadija Shah has a very accurate response also
And we are applauding them for giving Musharraf the death sentence. Who is already on his death bed. The legal fraternity is morally and ethically even more bankrupt than the politicians. https://t.co/24CGRDsSHt

The politician/social worker Marvi Memoon didn’t hold back either
Pak needs an amendment to the constitution. Those who have stolen from the poor and who are corrupt are far more treasonous to their soil their DHARTI MAA their flag because they thought of their bank accounts versus the poor the maaaarooara. First loyalty is2flag to PEOPLE.
