Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, seen here at a ceremony in 2007. Musharraf seized power in a 1999 coup, but resigned in 2008 when he was threatened with impeachment. After nearly four years of self-imposed exile in Dubai, Musharraf is expected to return to Pakistan's Karachi on Sunday to help his All Pakistan Muslim League Party in parliamentary elections set for May. His political plans come despite security threats and possible arrest on charges that he failed to provide adequate security to former prime minister Benazir Bhutto before her assassination in 2007. Retired General Rashid Qureshi says Musharraf should not be detained upon arrival. (SOUNDBITE) (English) RETIRED GENERAL RASHID QURESHI, SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF MUSHARRAF'S ALL PAKISTAN MUSLIM LEAGUE (APML) PARTY, SAYING: "There is no reason for a person to be arrested who is coming back to appear in court. One. Number two, the legal team - which Pervez Musharraf does have - is ready." Some Pakistanis, frustrated with the ruling Pakistan People's Party, are hopeful about his return. This man said he had his doubts about Musharraf during his tenure, but after five years of the PPP government, he started realizing that somehow things were better off with Musharraf. But whether the rest of Pakistan feels the same remains to be seen.
