    History and Background

    On 12 April 2004 he was sentenced to 23 years in prison for inciting mutiny in the army, forgery and defamation. He had circulated a letter written by military officers calling for an investigation into alleged corruption in the armed forces and that criticised president Pervez Musharraf and his relationship with US president George W. Bush.

    All opposition parties in Pakistan, including Pakistan People's Party of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, 6 party-alliance Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, call the above case to be politically motivated by the ruling junta, and entitle him to be a political prisoner.
