Pervez Musharraf in Conversation: An Intelligence Squared Event

Former President of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf will be speaking at an Intelligence Squared event as part of the 'World Leaders' series.


As the former president of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf was described by TIME Magazine as having “the most dangerous job in the world”. When he came to power in a military coup in 1999 he was shunned by many in the West as a dictator. Then came 9/11, and having previously been a supporter of ...the Taliban, Musharraf began to cooperate with the US campaign against militant Islam, sending troops to root out members of Al-Qaeda from the mountains and cities of Pakistan. But he was frequently walking a tightrope, as demands from anti-American Islamic extremists in the country became ever more vocal.

Tensions with India that seemed about to erupt into war in 2002, the humanitarian disaster of the earthquake in 2005 that killed over 73,000, the two assassination attempts on his life - these are just some of the themes that President Musharraf will cover in this “World Leaders” talk for Intelligence Squared.
