The hilarious social media of Pakistan and Sharifs conviction

News Desk |

On Friday, the National Accountability Bureau concluded a 10-month long Avenfield corruption case on former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family.

Indeed a high-profile case in the history of Pakistan’s politics, the court in its judgment convicted Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt. Safdar for 10, 7 and 1 years of imprisonment respectively.

People of Pakistan impatiently awaited the decision that was announced after the delay of four hours. The verdict, however, disappointed the Sharif family and a fraction of people who are mostly the party followers and were anticipating a victory in the case.

The majority of the general public expressed their satisfaction over the decision. The social media since the announcement of the verdict was stormed with messages of appreciation for Pakistan judicial system and chief of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, Imran Khan.

From multiple delays in the announcement of the decision to the final moments, the Twitter was abuzz with hilarious comments and posts from users.  Such hilarious comments eased the strained environment created due to delays.

Soon after the announcement of the verdict Maryam Nawaz Sharif went on a tweeting spree. She aggressively condemned the court decision and called it a conspiracy against them. In a series of tweets, she expressed her high resolve to fight back and conviction.

On the other hand, a large number of people praised Imran Khan for adamantly standing against the Sharif dynasty and judiciary for holding accountable the powerful ruling elite for corruption.

The leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf including Jehangir Tareen and Dr. Arif Alvi also issued messages from their social media accounts. The leaders of Pakistan People’s Party, however, gave a mild reaction to the verdict.

Overall, the Friday was indeed a rollercoaster ride for the entire nation; multiple delays, the verdict, the anger and the happiness on the decision.
