In the first episode of the program on Sunday, the former general appeared live from Dubai and responded to questions about the security situation in Pakistan, where more than 130 people were killed in militant attacks in February.
Speaking about the latest military campaign targeting militant groups, Musharraf argued that the root cause of extremism had to be addressed.
Neither Musharraf nor representatives of Bol TV were available for comment.
Pakistan’s powerful military did not comment when contacted about the show, nor did the television regulatory authority.
The criminal cases against Musharraf were lodged by prosecutors under Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was ousted as prime minister in the 1999 coup. Sharif returned to power in elections four years ago.
The cases against Musharraf were seen as a source of tension between the military and Sharif’s government.
Musharraf has not returned to Pakistan since he was allowed to leave last year.
