Elections can't be held until justice is served to Nawaz Sharif: Maryam

  • Says previous military establishment in connivance with Supreme Court judges ousted Nawaz Sharif from power
Published February 27, 2023

Senior Vice President and Chief Organiser of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Maryam Nawaz said on Monday that elections would be held after justice is served to party supremo Nawaz Sharif in corruption cases, Aaj News reported.

While addressing a party’s workers’ convention in Sahiwal, Maryam claimed that a previous military establishment in connivance with Supreme Court judges ousted his father from power.

“Nawaz Sharif made Pakistan an atomic power and provided cheap electricity, gas, and daily use items. Pakistan made impressive progress during Nawaz Sharif’s tenures, but when he was ousted through a conspiracy, the economy nosedived,” she said.

Maryam said justice must be done with Nawaz and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan must be brought to justice and then the elections would be held in the country.

The PML-N Vice President alleged that former Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Saqib Nisar (retired), and former spy chief Gen Faiz Hameed (retired) conspired against Nawaz Sharif, claiming that the two individuals were still supporting Imran Khan “through their pawns”.

Maryam also brought up the leaked audio clip of former judge Arshad Malik, in which he allegedly confessed that he convicted Nawaz Sharif under duress. The PML-N leader referred to this as evidence of the previous PTI government’s manipulation of the judiciary to target her party.

In an address last week, Maryam displayed photographs of five people from the military and judiciary on the screen and accused them of supporting Imran. They were former ISI chief Lt Gen Faiz Hameed (retd), former chief justices of Pakistan Saqib Nisar and Asif Saeed Khosa, serving SC judges Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi and Ijazul Ahsan.

“Lt Gen Faiz (retired) was the head of this ‘gang’, adding he wanted to become the army chief, for which he needed a pawn to use. Since Nawaz Sharif couldn’t comprise, he picked Imran Khan,” Maryam said.

She claimed Gen Faiz told a PDM party leader that Nawaz had to be cut to size, as he was getting too big.

The former spy chief also picked “corrupt and incompetent” judges like former CJPS, Saqib Nisar and Asif Saeed Khosa, as well as some serving judges to disqualify Nawaz and make sure they were sitting on the benches hearing his cases.

Now that the establishment had withdrawn its support of Imran, he was being facilitated by the judiciary, she claimed.

“These judges are remnants of Gen Faiz’s era. The corrupt former corps commander also committed financial corruption and siphoned off money abroad.”

@Qasim, She's an idiot, who comes from a long line of idiots. A couple of glaring observations: nobody has ANY right to suspend constitutional procedure just to protect their daddy. Furthermore, Maryam neglects to mention that her own family only ever achieved political success because they were nurtured by the same forces that supported IK. She also conveniently sidestepped the fact that her father is the only PM who had the audacity to launch an open physical attack on our supreme court - the footage of which is available for anybody to see online. As for her claims about NS making Pakistan a nuclear power, they're so ridiculous they aren't even worth wasting words over. All three major parties (PML, PPP, PTI) have been burned by the military, and all three are still secretly trying to win their backing. Sadly, the very fact that someone can get away with this nonsense and maintain popular support is enough to show just how corrupt and inept our entire political landscape is.

@HashBrown®, rightly said and I agree with you but don’t you think that this a kind of argument where one would finally say that we need to go to foreign bcz there is nothing for us or we should stop voting bcz there will be no change and expect that everything will be changed…I know they are nurtured by establishment and ruled the country for 35 years in tenures of 3-4 years at max and army ruled for 40 years with 8-10 years in one go.. but still good things happened in tenure of political forces .. no matter how small there tenure was…

@Qasim, "but still good things happened in tenure of political forces" Brother if you look at our history, every regime can be credited with some successes, amidst many far greater failures. As the saying goes, even a broken clock tells the right time twice a day... If I told you I'm a PTI supporter, you would have every reason to accuse me of hypocrisy, because the party today is barely any different to the other two major ones. But IK can at least be credited with keeping his family out of politics, and also expanding Pakistan's welfare state, which to me is far more important than building up our nuclear stockpile or buying more F16s. I would also say his government handled the Covid crisis relatively well (thanks to Asad Umer and primarily Sania Nishtar). I have no interest in joining any cult in which a person can do no wrong; aside from the above, he has proven himself to be just another self absorbed waste of space. But we have to restrict our support to civilians only.
