Timeline of Military Rule in Pakistan

Much of Pakistan’s history has been marred with dictatorship. From self-proclaimed Field Marshall, General Ayub Khan to the so called Chief Executive, General Pervez Musharaf, the total span of military rule is more than 32 years.

The chart below summarizes the democratic and military span of our history. The most significant event of each dictatorial rule is also highlighted which reveals a very interesting pattern. It is not surprising to note that each military regime leaves behind a legacy of destruction the scars of which are carried by 160 million souls in Pakistan to this day.
