Following a request by Musharraf’s lawyer to grant him permanent exemption, the judge said he would decide the issue on March 15.
Cleric Abdul Rasheed Ghazi was killed when army troops cracked down on the Lal Masjid to flush out militants who were holed up in the pro-Taliban mosque in Islamabad.
The operation was conducted at a time when Musharraf was both president and army chief.
At least 100 people, a majority of them extremists, were killed during the operation.
