Washington, Mar.16 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf has hinted of a come back to the country's political stage through a party named the All Pakistan Muslim League.

Talking to media persons before a lecture in Seattle, Musharraf said his party has been registered, but reiterated that he would return to Pakistan only when he believes there is enough support for him.

"I think the party has been registered. If I have to just go there and join the political fray and be involved in accusations and counter-accusations...like most politicians are doing, then I am not interested in that kind of politics,"The Seattle time quoted Musharraf, as saying.

Later,talking to an audience of hundreds of people, largely Pakistani Americans, in Bellevue, Musharraf said the Taliban's brand of Islamic extremism poses a serious threat to the nation.

"We need to ask ourselves, do we or don't we want a Taliban and Al Qaeda culture in Pakistan ... because every action then flows from that decision," Musharraf said.

Reports regarding Musharraf, who is currently living in London on an 'unannounced' exile, coming back to Pakistan have been doing the rounds for the past year or so with the former general saying he would return if the country wants him to do so.

Musharraf, however, has not set a date for his return to Pakistan.

Some believe that he may never come back as he fears being prosecuted for imposing emergency in the state through unconstitutional steps in 2007. (ANI)
