Lahore, Jan.23 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf may have been an unpopular leader during his eight year long 'autocratic' rule, but he has emerged as the most popular Pakistani leader on the famous social networking website, Facebook.

Musharraf has emerged as the most popular leader with an over 100,000 fan following, while incumbent President Asif Ali Zardari is the second most sought after leader with 86,000 members in his fan club.

Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is nowhere near the two leaders in the popularity charts, and stands on third place with only 6,000 followers on the site.

Musharraf's Facebook group consists of members of all ages, although a majority of the fans comprise the youth, The Daily Times reported.

One of the prime reasons behind Musharraf's sky high popularity are his liberal thoughts and his stiff stance over extremism.

However, some bloggers believe that Musharraf, Zardari, the Sharif brothers and all other famous Pakistani politicians are alike and there is no difference between them. (ANI)
