He did his primary education in his hometown and at the Intermediate Government Post Graduate College, Muzaffarabad.
Musaddiq Abbasi joined the Pakistan Army in 1974 and served in various sectors as a young officer.
When the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was set up under former President Pervez Musharraf, he was posted as Director Records in Karachi.
According to reports, in Karachi, when he touched a close associate of Pir Pagara at that time, his complaint reached Pervez Musharraf. He was later transferred to Peshawar as DG NAB.
In 2011 he was transferred from Peshawar to Islamabad where he continued to work as DG Awareness and Prevention.
After serving in the NAB for 13 years, Musaddiq Abbasi is currently living a life of retirement. He has written articles on corruption and accountability in various newspapers and has also given lectures on corruption in universities.
Brigadier Musaddiq Abbasi has a clear view on accountability and corruption and also keeps a close eye on the work of the NAB.
His position is that corruption in Pakistan has been vaguely defined. Its comprehensive definition and more severe punishments need to be introduced. He spoke in support of the US Alliance for Democracy, but said that maintaining some independence was important for Iran and China.
