Zardari to be discharged
It has recently been revealed that the President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari will be discharged from the hospital in Dubai. The day of the discharge has been told to be Thursday. However, it has not been revealed whether the President of Pakistan will be
returning back to the country after being discharged.
There are various rumors regarding the absence of Asif Ali Zardari from the country and as the duration of the absence grows more fire is being added to the speculations. One of the most talked about speculation behind the departure of the President of Pakistan
from the country last week is that Asif Ali Zardari is being put under pressure by the military of Pakistan in order to step down from his office and the health of the President of Pakistan is being used as a cover.
On the other hand, the stance of the government of Pakistan on the matter has been different. Initially it was said that Asif Ali Zardari was urged on by his son Bilawal Bhutto to visit the doctor in Dubai when the President of Pakistan complained of heart
trouble. Zardari had already suffered a heart attack earlier shortly after he was released from prison in 2005 where he was kept for corruption charges.
According to the letter of the American Hospital, where Zardari was admitted, which is dated December 13th and signed by a doctor named Khaldoun Taha, the President was brought to the hospital "with a chief complaint of left-arm numbness and twitching
with a transient episode of loss of consciousness that lasted for few seconds.”
However, there are people in the country that also link the absence of Zardari from the country related to the case that the Supreme Court of Pakistan will take up on the December 19th. The case is about former Pakistani ambassador to the U.S.
Hussain Haqqani, who is also a close side to the President of Pakistan. The accusation against the former ambassador is that he made an offer to the U.S. to control the military of Pakistan and in exchange get support from the government of Pakistan.
