Former President Pervez Musharraf was indicted in the high treason case against him by a special court and was sentenced to death.
Social media reactions ranged from supporting the judgement to disappointment over it.
Pakistani celebrities also took to Twitter to express their sentiments. Actors Mehwish Hayat and Venna Malik, who had also previously voiced support for the ex-dictator, along with Shaan Shahid, expressed their dismay over the judgment.
They said that a true patriot and a protector of democracy had been condemned by the courts of the country.

"The treason of which I stand convicted loses all its guilt, has been sanctified as a duty, and will be ennobled as a sacrifice."#Musharraf #MusharrafVerdict
