According to the diplomat, Musharraf would first perform a Muslim pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia, and thereafter finally settle in London to lead a retired life. Pakistan's Foreign Office, however, declined to comment on the fresh speculation about Musharraf's post-retirement plans, reported The Telegraph. Musharraf had stepped down yesterday to avoid impeachment charges that were to be brought by federal coalition government.
The US, a close ally in the war against terrorism, and Pakistan's Army had demanded of the Pakistan government to allow Musharraf 'an honourable exit', including indemnity from prosecution. But, Washington refused to give refuge to Musharraf after his resignation.
