By Dr Shahid Qureshi: –
The drama today supported by NAB in the arrest of convicted criminal Captain Safdar son in law and aider and abettor in the loot of Pakistani wealth. He was allowed to run a rally in Rawalpindi with the full support of CPO of Police. This CPO must be immediately sacked from his position. These are the cancers of Pakistani bureaucracy who are foreign nationals as well as protectors of criminals and money launderers like Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari. Civil servants are the back bone and blood lines of the state. They are the one who run the state affairs. It is them who escalated the tension and risks by Nawaz Sharif having a ‘VIP criminal’ status who is allowed to wander around the world with his daughter.
The damage treacherous Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz caused to Pakistan and its armed forces is far more than the three wars with India. His wheeling and dealing with Indians is beyond imagination and if there was a fully functioning deep state in Pakistan Nawaz Sharif would have been in the bottom of the Arabian Sea. He as foreign minister of Pakistan for 4 years followed the Indian narrative.
It is time upon arrival at a Pakistani airport both convicted criminals Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Safdar should be taken to a prison out of Punjab and may be (Mach) in Baluchistan where they can serve their sentence peacefully. Sharifs invested over Rs. 4 billion government money in media and it is time to end this ‘media circus’ and toxic agents of the enemy neutralised before they become out of control.
When Army Chief General. Raheel Sharif informed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif about the successful operation of the ISI and the arrest of a serving Indian Navy and RAW officer Kubhushan Yadave, who was involved in terrorism and sabotage in Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif was not very happy and said something like this ‘we also send our people too’. He never uttered a word about the RAW agent or protested to India as prime minister or foreign minister. He however, entertained Indian businessman Sajan Jandal in Murree instead of Islamabad who came as a messenger for RAW and assured him relief. The result was that Pakistan on his orders took ‘Kulbuhshan Case’ to International Court who has no jurisdiction as local country court i.e. high court and supreme court option in Pakistan were not explored. Kulbhushan was caught doing terrorist activities in Pakistan as well as commissioned to sabotage ‘Gawadar Port’ and over 473 agents of his network were arrested including two employees of ‘Khana-e-Farhang, Iran in Multan. Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadave was operating from Iranian Port city of Chabhar as Indian businessman carrying Indian passport with the name of ‘Mubrak Hussain Patel’.
Nawaz Sharif undermined the premier agency’s successes by maligning them in the Indian press and his toxic daughter doing the same. He confirmed his mindset by blaming Pakistan for the Mumbai terrorist attacks of 26/11. If he was a British prime minister damaging the state, I can assure you that he would have been buried in the bottom of River Thames. Here is what Indian Defense analyst said on TV.
“We Invested On Nawaz Sharif” … Indian Defense Analyst
Nawaz Sharif’s agents in Pakistani establishment allowed him to leave the country, when his name should have been on the exit control list. He is sitting in a private clinic in London and fooling the whole nation with the help of ‘bought media’ who never ask the right questions but behaving like a relay station to these convicted criminals.
The language and wording a convicted criminal Maryam Nawaz using is beyond her IQ and surely scripted by professionals and handlers. This woman was a disaster for her family from day one, and now talking about the role of ‘deep state’ which is got nothing to do with their corruption and money laundering. If ‘deep state’ in Pakistan was functioning properly Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, and her two brothers would be in prison and not enjoying luxury life in London. The leniency Maryam Nawaz had from General Raheel Sharif after she was caught red-handed in ‘Dawn Leaks’ was unimaginable and too soft. I wish Gen. Raheel Sharif did not become complacent in this matter. Pakistan would not be having this problem but the flip side is that: ‘he gave her (Maryam Nawaz) enough rope to hang herself’ and she did.
If this crime was committed by someone else, she or he would be have been tried under the Army Act and hanged for treason. No? This woman has a big mouth with no brain is toeing the RAW and Modi’s narrative in Pakistan. We know who are sitting in high places in deep state and elsewhere, but their time will be up soon in few months.
Government of Pakistan should write to FATF (Financial Action Task Force) if there is any problem with the British authorities in confiscation and recovery of the looted wealth by the Sharif Family as ordered by the Pakistani court of law with the supervision of the Supreme Court of Pakistan. But who will ‘bell the cat’ in the bureaucracy i.e. write all the letters to the authorities at the international bodies. I have studied Colombian and Pakistani mafias closely both have connections with foreign agencies to the dirty jobs, but the real gangsters are the while collar bureaucracy and corrupt politicians.
