Shortly before concluding his trip to India on Friday, Bush said he would work with Musharraf to â€œreduce the appeal of radical Islam.â€
â€œI believe that a prosperous, democratic Pakistan will be a steadfast partner for America, a peaceful neighbor for India and a force for freedom and moderation in the Arab world,â€ the president added.
Imran Khan, the leader of a small opposition party, was detained by Pakistani police at his Islamabad home ahead of a planned protest Saturday, his spokesman said.
Khan, a former Pakistan cricket captain, was leaving a friend’s home after dinner at around 1 a.m. local time when he was served with a detention order, said Akbar S. Babar, a spokesman for Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf or Movement for Justice party.
Khan was driven in a convoy of four police vehicles to his home on the banks of a lake near the Pakistani capital, he said.
An official at the local police station said at least 10 police were posted outside Khan’s home but he could not confirm his house arrest. The official declined to be named as he wasn’t authorized to speak to media.
