Nawaz Sharif, himself has said he is fighting for democracy against these forces. Nawaz Sharif, who presented himself in front of the accountability court earlier this week, attended the session for 5 minutes, before asking to go.  He has been asked to provide sources for his income with which multi-million-pound flats have been bought in London among other assets. He has so far not provided any documents.

Imran Khan has criticized the statement made by Khwaja Asif. He took to the twitter to express his deep resentment on the ‘acknowledgment’ made by Khwaja Asif about the existence of ‘terrorist hideouts’ in Pakistan. Khan as time and again stated that Pakistan has rooted out the menace of terrorism from the country and has done enough in this War on Terror.
