Lahore, July 20 (ANI): Former President Pervez Musharraf should not join politics, as it would be a big mistake, said Awami Muslim League President Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.

Talking to Daily Times Editor-in-Chief Najam Sethi on Dunya TV, Rashid said he did not foresee a future for Musharraf in politics.

He said PML-Q dissident leader Humayun Akhtar and his colleagues had lost the battle for the PML-Q and should leave the party honourably.

Earlier, a large group of Britons of Pakistani origin in London, 'Lovers of Musharraf', planned to re-launch him into politics. The members of the group believe that Musharraf was the best thing that had ever happened to Pakistan and that the country never had it so good except during his tenure.

The group wants to re-launch the retired general into Pakistani politics soon after the two-year post-retirement mandatory period comes to an end in September this year and is confident that his return would be even more triumphant than the one which was witnessed during Benazir Bhutto's 1986 return home.

Politically, the timing would be just ripe as the present rulers by that time would have been exposed to the full and the people of Pakistan would be dying to welcome back their redeemer, said one of the leading organisers of the event who is also footing part of the bill. (ANI)
