Accountability of the Sharifs amid unfolding events

Nawajoo

By each unfolding event, it is becoming apparent that the Sharifs are in intense pressure.

Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and her spouse famously known for his inflammatory speech against Ahmedis,  Captain(R) Safdar is in jeopardy as the accountability court indicted them for Aveneue Field references and Azzezia Paper Mill.

Nawaz managed to escape the proceedings as his wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is currently suffering from cancer, going through chemotherapy in London.

Maryam Nawaz remarked, this entire proceedings are a “mockery to justice”.

The entire politics are revolving  around in saving Nawaz Sharif’s dynasty, as the incumbent Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on the floor of the national assembly, that the ousted prime minister is still his premier.

Nawaz became triumphant as his stalwarts passed the controversial election reform bill, enabling their leader to preside their party; a move that was denounced by his adversaries.

Whereas, a series of tirade between military, and civil elites in the past few days, using economy as a pretext boiled up the situation.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi categorically stated, “There is no need of US military aid”.

An interesting remark passed by COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa stressing the urge to break the ‘begging bowl” are few evidences that signify the situation is not in order.

In the meantime, the talks of national government or technocratic set up was at a fever pitch in the power corridors.

Things need to be put in order. Accountability is good, but the perception of “selective accountability” is bad.

A perception that Sharifs want to thrive on.

Every day Media coverage, ‘rowdy lawyers’ are creating what seems like pre-planned dramas outside the judicial complex to benefit Nawaz in the longer run.

But at last Pakistan and the rule of Law will flourish, if justice is seen to be done.
