Musharraf and his siblings were born at Lala Girdharilal Maternity Hospital located in Kamala Market in Delhi.

The New Delhi Municipal Council had scoured its records and found three entries, of which two were of male children born on August 11, 1942 and July 22, 1945. They were identified as 'sons of Musharraf'.

The third entry was for a girl child born on July 19, 1941, identified as 'daughter of Musharraf, son of Shaiffudin.'
