Lahore , June 23 (ANI): Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has revealed that during his childhood he was never good at studies, so his mother was always worried about his future.

Defending military rule in Pakistan , Musharraf said he had empowered women and minorities as well as decentralised power.
Describing why an army general takes interest in democracy, Musharraf said that he himself studied Pakistani society and found that the people had been living in a colonial era where deputy commissioners and superintendents had been their godfathers. That is why we thought to empower the people and bring democracy at the grassroots level, the paper quoted him as saying in the TV interview.
He added that every prime minister had misgoverned Pakistan and looked towards the army general headquarters after finding himself and the country in troubled waters.
He said more than 20,000 mercenaries, including Uzbeks and Chechens, were hiding in Pakistan and were perpetuating the negative law and order in the country. (ANI)
