Former Pakistani General and “chief executive” Pervez Musharraf has been living in Dubai since 2016. In a bloodless coup he gained power and declared martial law in 2007. Eventually in December 2019 he would be put on trail and was given the death sentence for suspending the constitution. The former chief executive left for treatment abroad and never came back since.
News began to spread that he had succumbed to the disease he had been battling for a very long time. Rumors arose from news sources and even from some close family friends of Pervez Musharraf. Some people were even claiming he was on a ventilator. The family quickly cleared up any rumors and said he has been hospitalized and he is not on a ventilator. The 78-year-old former military ruler was diagnosed with a rare disease called amyloidosis. In this disease, a protein called amyloid builds up in organs and tissues throughout the body. The build-up of amyloid proteins (deposits) can make it difficult for the organs and tissues to work properly. Pervez Musharraf was diagnosed with this disease in 2018.
Although his family denies any news of him being on a ventilator the situation is still dire. His family sent a message to the country through Pervez Musharraf’s official twitter. They said that his organs have malfunctioned beyond recovery and they asked to pray for ease in his daily life
