Former president General Pervez Musharraf (retired) passed away on Sunday at American Hospital in Dubai after a prolonged illness, Aaj News reported.

The former chief of army staff was hospitalised for a couple of weeks due to a complication of his ailment (amyloidosis).

According to the Mayo Clinic website, amyloidosis is a rare disease that occurs when an abnormal protein, called amyloid, builds up in the organs and interferes with their normal function.

The retired general's illness came to light in 2018 when the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) announced that he was suffering from the rare disease amyloidosis.

Musharraf left the country in 2016 to seek medical treatment abroad and had remained outside the country since.

Musharraf, born on August 11, 1943, in Delhi, completed his early education at St Patrick's High School in Karachi. He got higher education at Forman Christian College in Lahore.

As the news of his demise spread, tributes and condolences poured in.

The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) expressed its condolences on the death of the former army chief.

In a statement, it said: "CJCSC & Services Chiefs express heartfelt condolences on the sad demise of General Pervez Musharaf, Former President, CJCSC and Chief of Army Staff. May Allah bless the departed soul and give strength to the bereaved family."

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif also extended condolences to Musharraf’s family.

In a Twitter post, he said: “I offer my condolences to the family of General (rtd) Pervez Musharraf. May the departed soul rest in peace.”

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry prayed for the departed soul.

“Pervez Musharraf passed away. He was a great person, his friends proved to be small. Pakistan first was his thought and ideology always. May God have mercy on him,” he wrote.

Pakistan's former ambassador to the United Nations also prayed for the departed soul.

Shashi Tharoor, an Indian politician, tweeted “once an implacable foe of India, he became a real force for peace 2002-2007”.

Now if a similar disease were to rid the country of these other cancers, that would be a set in the right direction for Pakistan, the first in 75 years.

@javaria, Madam, the LHC had scrapped the entire case built on the late General and declared the constitution of the Special Court as well as its judgements null and void. Ref: Dawn Jan 14th 2020

His personal ambitions and his cowardice resulting in Afghan War and NRO to corrupts devastated Pakistans future. His crimes can not be forgiven merely because he has died. Such people should not be forgiven even after death for their crime brought misery to millions living. You can discourage other such characters by making them an example. Nawaz, Zardari Mullah and all are accomplices with him. These people never let Pakistan become Free
