Pakistan: Blogs react to Musharraf's comments

President Pervez Musharraf came close to achieving a PR disaster in recent times. The blogs were alive with the sound of sheer amazement, anger and disgust. In the Bullpen wonders why the statement was made in the first place. The extremely active Feminist community at Live Journal has its opinions. Dhimmi Watch has a post with some interesting comments.

So was this the Musharraf that promised a more ‘forward’ outlook? Blast Furnace Canada Blog has a post with his take on events such as “Take back the night” and Musharraf. Reality Cafe on Musharraf's denial, and Washington Post's stand. Feministing.com on PPP‘s response to the remarks. Satire galore here. GOP Vixen on why Musharraf won't find himself on Oprah anytime soon, and Mukhtaran Mai's opinions on the remarks. the olive ream with trademark humour in “Open Mouth: Insert Army Boot”.
