The former cricketer was detained after going to Punjab University in Lahore. He was initially held for an hour by students from the Jamaat-e-Islami party after a confrontation on campus."Jin Pay Tukiya Thaw, Wohee Puttay Howa Dayenay Lugay" (My Urdu editor is disabeled so please forgive me for writing in english alphabets, cannot translate it either. Actually, Et tu Brutus is a very right expression for this)
On Tuesday, Mr Khan said there should be no negotiations with General Musharraf.
In interviews for foreign media on Wednesday, General Musharraf insisted he was not a dictator and that he was the man to lead the country back to democracy.
I liked him like any other youngster and thought he could bring a change as a moderate; however, when he got close to Mullahs... I said no way.
I participated in some development seminars due to my job in Pakistan last year, where he was also invited. Many times, I thought I should tell him he is making a mistake by entering into religious alliances--otherwise he could do well (based on my personal assessment)--but I could not do so, because my job required me to stay away from politics and political personalities. It is sad to hear the tall tale of his recent arrest. He really made a mistake by getting close to MMA and especially Qazi. I think, Jammat knows he is a potential threat to their domination on campuses and that could be the major reason JTI turned him in.
