Islamabad, Aug.2 (ANI): So what if the odds are heavily against him, former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf seems to be one man who knows how to live life tension free.
Musharraf's penchant for Bollywood films and hindi songs is well known, but very few people are aware of the fact that he is a trained tabla player himself.
Musharraf's veiled talent was disclosed by Lord Nazir Ahmed, who has been severely criticizing the British government for providing an unprecedented security cover to Musharraf, The Nation reports.
Quoting one of his close friends, Lord Nazir revealed that Musharraf was recently invited as a chief guest in a musical show where he showcased the talent of his 'agile' fingers.
According to Lord Nazir's friend, during the show Musharraf found the 'tabla nawaz' accompanying the singer out of rhythm. Irritated by the performance, Musharraf himself jumped onto the stage and started performing on the tabla.
The audience was reportedly amazed to see a former general extracting the best of tabla beats.
It may be recalled that Lord Nazir, who became UK's first Muslim life peer in 1998, has vowed to launch a legal war against Musharraf for his eight year long autocratic rule in Pakistan.
He said Musharraf could be tried for 'war crimes' in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the numerous suppressive decisions that he took during his reign. (ANI)
