In a statement on his official twitter account, the cricketer turne politician said : “Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains.

Nawaz Sharif is the modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains. Nawaz speaking Modi’s language against Pak State simply to protect his ill-gotten Rs 300b stashed in his sons companies abroad.

“Today NS [Nawaz Sharif] stands exposed before the nation. To try & protect his wrongdoings he is not only willing to destroy all Pak State institutions, including army, NAB, SC, but also the future of our country,” he further said.

On Saturday, a famous news outlet published an exclusive interview of Nawaz Sharif taken out by the same journalist involved in releasing exclusive story, then what became famous as “Dawn Leaks”,.

During that interview he remarked

“Militant organisations are active. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. Why can’t we complete the trial?” — a reference to the Mumbai attacks-related trials which have stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

“It’s absolutely unacceptable. This is exactly what we are struggling for. President Putin has said it. President Xi has said it,” Mr Sharif said. “We could have already been at seven per cent growth (in GDP), but we are not.”
