Summary
["President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan governs a critical state in the worldwide war on terror. Before becoming president, Musharraf had spent his entire career in the Pakistani army. He helped train Afghani guerrilla forces to overthrow the Soviet regime. He was also involved in leading Pakistani troops against Indian forces as part of the continuing struggle between the two nations over the disputed Kashmir area. During his tenure as president, the Pakistani economy has grown. Nevertheless, Musharraf has been forced to contend with political groups who have not supported his authoritarian government. Some of these groups support al-Qaeda. However, after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Musharraf has become a strong ally of the United States in the war on terror."]--B.I.P
