Like it or not, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is the country’s only leading surviving politician who has got a national standing and a pure stature of true politician and his ineligibility is not only a blow to the PML(N) and its political future, but also has deep implications for the democracy in the country, which is tied up strongly and very tightly with the future of the country.
Asif Ali Zardari, the civilian dictator of Pakistan has acted upon his whims and his ghosts of fears and have conspired with the fake judiciary of Pervez Musharraf to get rid of the Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif. That also makes the PML(N) government of Punjab a thing of past and the most disliked person Salman Taseer has now got the hot seat and the Punjab smoulders with anger and anguish.
From the matter of General Pervez Musharraf’s supposed impeachment to the restoration of Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary, Asif Ali Zardari has lied and lied again. He has deceived not only Nawaz Sharif but has also played havoc with the interests of the country and its people.
He may have some glee out of this whole troubled fiasco, but that is short-lived for sure.
