Pervez Musharraf : Fan of Jihad! The Musical

Former Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf (renowned by many as a Taliban supporter and enabler) attended a performance of the British musical Jihad! The Musical at London’s Jermyn Street Theatre.

According to the show’s official Twitter page and the Daily Telegraph, Musharraf had nothing but praise for the show:

He came with one police officer, his wife, and three friends,” says James Seabright, the producer of the controversial show which features such songs as Building A Bomb Today and I Wanna Be Like Osama. “We had been contacted by Special Branch about his visit on Friday. All they required was that one of their officers should be sat beside him. After the show, the general stayed on to congratulate the cast. He was warm and generous in his praise.”

Ben Scheuer, the co-writer of the musical, did not regard it as remarkable that the general should have wanted to see it. “The show makes fun of extremists, not Muslims,” he said.
