By Dr Shahid Qureshi: –
PML-N leader Khawaja Asif now former Foreign Minister and Defense Minister of Pakistan betrayed his oath by Deception as Minister and member of parliament by working for an employer in U.A.E and getting paid Rs. 1.5 million per month salary, while working as federal minister of the two most important departments. Should we call it an intelligence failure or complicity of the ruling establishment. He would have been buried alive in River Thames if he was a British Minister.
I keep telling the boys in the boots as try to understand the difference being powerful in reality and having just sense of being powerful. You are dealing with Mafias and Con artists who would go at any length to get what they want.
He not only falsified his attendance to his so-called employer in UAE but also violated the terms and conditions of his work permit. Work Permits are issued for a specified job/role with specified terms and conditions, it can not be issued for voluntary worker and/or absentees. So his daily in country presence report was submitted to the UAE ministry of labor and ministry of border control.
On the other hand, he was serving as Federal Minister of Defense and Minister Foreign Affairs in Pakistan and getting paid his monthly salary as well as allowances – That is ‘Deception’ not just violation of election rules.?
Imran Khan on Twitter: “All our mafias keep iqamas/residences in UAE bec Central bank UAE not bound to nor does it disclose bank acc details of UAE Iqama holders.”
Earlier his leader now a convicted criminal on bail and having medical treatment in London on exceptional grounds was also sacked for similar reasons by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Nawaz Sharif was holding prime minister of Pakistan and Foreign Minister’s office both full time jobs since 2013 – 2017. On the other the hand he was also working full-time paid job in a UAE based company owned by his son. That is breach of Prime Minister’s oath or even (MNA) member national assembly oath. He should have been put in prison for withholding information and not declaring his interest. When a prime minister gets gifts from other countries or companies, they are all recorded in the ‘interests register’ and declared.
All his orders and actions taken were also declared null and void. He is not an honest person and does not full fill article 62 and 63 of constitution of Pakistan.
Seventh nuclear power in the world Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif was working as an employee of a Dubai based company while also working as full time prime minister of Pakistan and Foreign Minister.
He possessed a work permit issued by the ministry of labor at the request of the UAE company with full terms and conditions included with the ‘work permit’ applications for example, how long is the contract, how much would be the monthly salary and specific qualifications of the candidate to do the work as he cannot change his job. After issuing of work permit, interior ministry issues resident permit (Akama) and person can open a Bank account to receive his salary and can invite his family and kids.
If authorities find out that work permit holder is not actually doing the specific job it could be cancelled automatically, and company could be shut down for breach of contract. Now Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif keep on asking people ‘why I am sacked’ the short answer is because of your ‘deception’. A ‘work permit’ is not issued to do voluntary or unpaid work.
Prime Minister of Pakistan’s Oath below:
“I, (name), do swear solemnly that I am a Muslim and believe in the Unity and Oneness of Almighty Allah, the Books of Allah, the Holy Quran being the last of them, the Prophethood of Muhammad as the last of the Prophets and that there can be no Prophet after him, the Day of Judgment, and all the requirements and teachings of the Holy Quran and Sunnah:
That I will bear true faith and allegiance to Pakistan:
That, as Prime Minister of Pakistan, I will discharge my duties, and perform my functions, honestly, to the best of my ability, faithfully in accordance with the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the law, and always in the interest of the sovereignty, integrity, solidarity, well- being and prosperity of Pakistan:
That I will strive to preserve the Islamic ideology which is the basis for the creation of Pakistan:
That I will not allow my personal interest to influence my official conduct or my official decisions:
That I will preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:
That, in all circumstances, I will do right to all manner of people, according to law, without fear or favor, affection or ill- will:
And that I will not directly or indirectly communicate or reveal to any person any matter which shall be brought under my consideration or shall become known to me as Prime Minister except as may be required for the due discharge of my duties as Prime Minister.
May Allah Almighty help and guide me (A’meen)”
Every year hundreds of cricketers come from abroad including Pakistan to play league cricket in England from April – September. Local clubs apply for the ‘work permit’ of the specific player which he presents to the local British embassy for visa and a specific visa is issued. He is not allowed to do another job apart from playing cricket.
This practice does not stop here as Khawaja Asif is also a ‘work permit’ holder in a middle eastern country and receiving a salary of the job he could not do as he is a full time foreign minister of Pakistan. His work permit expired June 2019.
Ahsan Iqbal – The Interior Minister
The Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal responsible for the national security and head of intelligence agencies is also a ‘work permit’ holder of middle eastern country. So why do these people need a ‘work permit’? The simple reason is that they open bank accounts anywhere in world and their country of residence will be in Middle East and not Pakistan. It is for the money laundering purposes.
From 2013 to 2017 Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shabaz Sharif as Chief minister Punjab from 2008 to date ruled in Pakistan. During this time RAW agents have been arrested from their sugar mills and other businesses. Nawaz Sharif was the first person who confirmed the identity of Mumbai Bombings accused Ajmal Kasab. He invited Indian Prime Minister Narandra Modi and his national security advisor Ajit Doval on his birthday and Maryam Nawaz’s daughter marriage. He sent his military secretary on ‘gardening leave’ and did not invite his national security advisor.
According to a book, “Air Massacre over Bahawalpur” page 341, written by Commodore Tariq Majeed: “Nawaz Sharif’s Indian Connection: India’s RAW hosted Nawaz Sharif’s visit to Delhi in 1978 and cultivated him in some ways, but he had been picked up and programmed by RAW’s masters, CIA and Mossad, to serve, like Ms Bhutto, the Zionist interests. What gives special significance and authenticity to this disclosure is that its author was a member of the key staff in ISI when Nawaz was being hooked by RAW.
This is not like a spy story of James bond 007 stealing a secret of the enemy. What Nawaz Sharif and others in his team are doing is much more sophisticated and subtle. In modern world agents like Nawaz Sharif serve their masters in a very subtle way for example:
“it was Nawaz Sharif who confirmed the identity of only surviving alleged terrorist of Mumbai Attacks which was quoted all over the world”.
On the other hand, former I.G Police of Mahrashtara said in his speech that Ajmal Kassab was in custody of the Indian Agency at the time of Mumbai Attacks. He is seeking re investigations of Mumbai Attacks and fighting case in the Indian High Court and case hearing is due in October 2016. I have spoken to him and he has confirmed to me that a trial hearing is due in October this year.
Nawaz Sharif has undermined Pakistan from all sides be it economy, foreign affairs, defence or international image.
“Pakistan cannot be left on its own devices”, said a British diplomat in TV program The Agenda hosted by famous journalist Yvonne Ridley few years. I said in my comment: ‘why British taxpayers money be spent on a country whose regimes are full of corrupt politicians who are taking money out of the country and let Pakistani people deal with the problems.
You can see why British diplomat said: ‘Pakistan cannot be left on its own devices’.
