Sharif Saga: End of kleptocrats & thugs?

Mark my words. If anyone is living under the mistaken and highly misplaced impression that these guys will get some kind of a deal to escape what they richly deserve, is living in cuckoo land! –Haider Mehdi

Seeing the latest social media onslaught by the Sharif supporters that depicted the “helplessness” of Dad Sharif and daughter Sharif; “poor souls”, the victims in a case of miscarriage of justice, the valiant fighters for democracy, and poor little innocent Princess Maryam Borgia Sharif “bravely” refusing a higher jail class. While the Bubloo in London laments about his dad’s mattress!

It makes one cringe!

What nonsense! What calumny! What sickness! What invective! What slander! What a pack of hypocritical garbage!

Their god of money and power is history.

Mark my words. If anyone is living under the mistaken and highly misplaced impression that these guys will get some kind of a deal to escape what they richly deserve, are living in cuckoo land!

We have turned an important corner in our history. For the first time a sitting and powerful PM was removed from office while his own party was in power, under the glare of public scrutiny. No foreign government has criticized or condemned their trial and conviction and imprisonment. Perhaps India may, for reasons we all know!

Nawaz and Maryam’s conviction and imprisonment are totally different from extra constitutional methods employed by previous military interventions which removed an elected PM.

This time for over a year and a half in full view of the world the man and his daughter were asked a simple question by the court, “Just show us the money trail with which you bought these properties?” And herein lays the whole case!

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. And sickness upon sickness, this daughter not only lied to prove their innocence, but had both the temerity and the royal bimbo like stupidity, which only the children of the most corrupt and obscenely rich can somehow muster to “forge a document”.

Here’s the entire family caught with their pants down and proven guilty as hell!

Smart alecky lawyers are twisting and turning like contortionists, doing amazing jackknife back flips and incredulous legal gymnastics to bore holes into the judgment!

But really! Really! Is there any sane person in Pakistan who genuinely believes that Nawaz, Maryam, Bubloo and Dubloo are innocent? If they do, then I wish them and their sanity, good luck!

One can of course debate the pros and cons of law and the judgment etc. but the fact of the matter is that this man, his sons and his daughter were hand in glove in this loot and plunder and fraud.

They deserve a much harsher punishment then they are currently serving. And they will get it, if not from our legal system but from the cries  of the teeming hungry starving tens of millions who have suffered because of lack of nutrition, clean drinking water, health, and an opportunity to get a decent education and make a decent living.

And all because this wretched family stole our nation’s wealth

Like Bhutto who deserved what he got, not as much for the crime he was finally convicted of and hanged, these damn Borgias of Pakistan will suffer a fate that will chill everyone to the bones for their crimes against the people of Pakistan.

Nature’s Nemesis has finally caught up with them!

Allah will not spare them. The people of Pakistan will Insha Allah not spare them. The dying shrieks of malnutrition infants will not spare them. The cries of orphans, widows, the sick, the unemployed, the very old, and abandoned by society and state, will not forgive them!

Every Rupee this abominable and despicable family stole was one Rupee less that could have saved lives, given people better health care, better education.

But no. This terrible family snatched livelihood and life from the people of Pakistan.

I’m convinced that despite their wealth, their social media brigade, the sympathy they are trying to garner in incarceration, they will face the fate they deserve.

Pakistan has no use or need of them. They’ve done enough damage.

Let them rot in jail here and in hell in the Hereafter. Insha Allah.
