The University of London cancels the event of Pervez Musharraf

The University of London has canceled former president Pervaiz Musharraf’s event ‘scheduled’ at the campus for Thursday.

According to ANI news agency, a channel had announced that Musharraf will “answer your questions on a range of world issues, from 1999 military coup to the War on Terror and Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification” at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Khalili Theatre on August 24.
