The former military leader passed away at American Hospital Dubai, where he was receiving amyloidosis therapy.
The application to transfer Musharraf’s body to Pakistan was submitted by his family to the Pakistani consulate in Dubai.
In order to return Musharraf’s mortal remains to Pakistan, a special jet will depart from Nur Khan airfield and fly to Dubai.
The All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), a political organisation founded by Musharraf, denied the death rumours when they first appeared last year.
The news that he was critically ill or on a ventilator had been denied by the party. Musharraf’s condition was stable and he was receiving amyloidosis treatment at home, according to the statement.
The illness known as amyloidosis is brought on by an aberrant protein that accumulates in tissues and organs and impairs their functionality.
The former president will be laid to rest in a Karachi cemetery, according to people close to his family. The grieving family formally requested permission from the Pakistani consulate in Dubai to return Musharraf’s lifeless remains to Pakistan.
In order to return Musharraf’s body to Pakistan for burial, a special aircraft would touch down at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport on Monday morning, the sources claimed.
While his father was buried in Karachi, the former president’s mother was interred in Dubai.
