Nation at 9: Nawaz Sharif disqualified as PM; ‘Big Boss Bajwa’ enemy no. 1?

“Oh lord, help me for I am innocent,” were the last public words of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the man who just 7 years before his death had sat across the table with Indira Gandhi to sign the Shimla agreement, the one who had supported Pakistan’s nefarious operation ‘Gibraltar’ that led to the country’s defeat in 1965 before that. He had worked for dictator Ayub and lost to India. He again lost in 1971-72.
At 2:04 am on the April 4, 1979, he was hanged. ‘I pity my wife,’ he told the last man who spoke to him. His execution order was confirmed by the Pakistan Supreme Court under the dictator Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq.
Today, the same Pakistan Supreme Court has sacked and disqualified Nawaz Sharif as the Prime Minister for life. He’s been found guilty of having a hoard of cash and posh properties in London. The same Sharif that was ousted by the dictator Pervez Musharraf in 1999, now ousted by a joint investigation team that for some reason had members from the Pakistan army and the ISI; the same Sharif who was kicked out in 1993 due to corruption charges.
Replaced by Bhutto and Zardari, the heirs of Zulfikar, the infamous Mr and Mrs 10 percent, who were both found guilty in 2003 of having a hoards of cash and posh properties in London.
History goes around in shockingly tragic circles for the people of Pakistan, including the history of repeatedly losing wars to India. ‘Chors’ and ‘looteras’ are their netas and the autocrats and power mad dictators actually run the country.
Pakistan is in a state of emergency. Its transition, even to a sham democracy, is in peril, its terrorists today are hailing Sharif’s ouster as a victory against a man who didn’t do enough to support their jihad. A terror state then, in perpetual crisis, cello taped together with made in China glue! So, where does this now leave Pakistan, where does this leave what India does with Pakistan and where does this leave the war on terror?
These are the really big questions to answer.
