Lahore, Pakistan, Nov 25: Returning from exile to Pakistan under emergency rule, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said today he was determined to rid the country of dictatorship.

President Pervez Musharraf, the army general who deposed Sharif in a coup eight years ago, declared emergency powers on Nov 3, but agreed to allow Sharif to return home from Saudi Arabia.

''We want democracy and nothing else,'' Sharif told the BBC by telephone on arriving back in his hometown Lahore from the Saudi city of Medina. ''I am here to play my role and also make my own efforts to rid the country of dictatorship.''
