The former army chief, who seized power in a military coup in 1999, had been under huge pressure to quit before the current coalition government launched the first impeachment proceedings in Pakistan’s 61-year history.
Impoverished Pakistanis are hoping his departure will bring improvement to their lives.
Lawyers, who have spearheaded an anti-Musharraf campaign since he tried to sack the chief justice last year, shouted ‘Down with the American stooge!’ as they stormed out of courts in Multan.
In Peshawar, Jaffar Shah, a retired soldier, said: ‘The root cause of all problems has gone.
‘I wish I could fire shots to show my joy but unfortunately I can’t do that.’
In Karachi, people handed out sweets and danced in celebration. ‘Thank God he’s resigned. The country will do much better now. It’s a victory for the people,’ said one small businessman.
In Lahore, the sound of drums and cheers of joy echoed throughout this ancient walled city.
