Politics and political strategies during democratic rule are entirely different from the politics during the rule of dictators. This research aims to study the politics of politicians under Martial Law administrators especially the politics of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain during the rule of Musharraf.  First of all, the behaviour of Pakistani politicians towards dictatorship and then the conduct of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain during Musharraf rule were studied.  For this purpose, data was collected from various articles written in different newspapers, YouTube, online sources and articles written in different newspaper.  The data was analysed qualitatively.  It was found that though, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain favoured his policies but he differed with Musharraf in many issues of public interest.
