The Pakistan government Friday offered to bring former military ruler Pervez Musharrafs ailing mother from Dubai in a special aircraft as a humanitarian gesture so that the two could be reunited.
The government would provide all available medical facilities for the treatment of Musharrafs 95-year-old mother,said a statement from Prime Ministers Office.
The government is ready to send a special plane or air ambulance to bring Musharrafs mother to Pakistan on humanitarian grounds so that she can get treatment in Pakistan and live with her son,the statement said.
Musharraf,who has a plethora of cases against him,is currently barred from travelling out of the country as he has been included in the Interior Ministrys Exit Control List (ECL).
His petition to remove his name from the ECL,so that he could travel to Dubai to visit his mother,has already been rejected by the Sindh High Court.

Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid said the independent judiciary will decide Musharrafs fate.
The former army chief is set to appear in a special court on January 1 to face charges of high treason for imposing emergency in 2007.
Reacting to the governments offer,Musharrafs spokesperson Aasia Ishaque said it was a good gesture but was done because the government realised that he is not going to run away.
