Let me say on the outset that I’ve the deepest respect for Nationwide Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (r) Javed Iqbal. The denial by NAB of the video purporting to point out him in a foul mild is one thing I discover wholly convincing, particularly after I keep in mind that NAB custody has been criticised by no lesser individuals than the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Mian Shehbaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Aleem Khan. I’ve no want to be paraded in handcuffs, as was accomplished to college professors, nor will I commit suicide if interrogated by NAB, as I consider suicide is haraam. I’ve no want for NAB to understand that my claims to have by no means held any public workplace are true, solely after I’ve been in its custody for a number of months.
I don’t defend sexual harassment. However I didn’t actually see our model of the #MeToo Motion beginning in a NAB workplace. I’d have suspected Lollywood as being the place it could begin. Some would say that Meesha Shafi has began it towards Ali Zafar, which might make it the music trade. Nonetheless, one girl doesn’t make a motion.
After all, Justice (r) Iqbal doesn’t have solely NAB to scare me. I’m additionally paranoid concerning the Supreme Court docket (SC) hauling me up for contempt. Would the apex court docket take up the case of anybody who mentioned something a few retired choose? I’d not wish to take the danger, and I’d strongly recommend that nobody else take it.
I’d not wish to be recognized as a part of the patriarchy. However I want to level out that it has been highly effective for a extremely very long time. And I have to level out that the NAB chairman is in good firm. The chief of the free world (Donald Trump) has been accused of paying off a stripper he’s alleged to have had an affair with. The chief of the Islamic world (Imran Khan) has been accused of so many issues he wouldn’t even trouble denying them.
It’s with trepidation and fearful glances over my shoulder for NAB or SC that I want to level out that PTI is in workplace. Which implies that accusation is guilt and Justice (r) Iqbal has been accused. After all, I’d assume that he can be studying the that means of responsible till confirmed harmless at dwelling, from his spouse.
His innocence wouldn’t depend, regardless that the lady in query and her husband have had a reference filed towards them for blackmailing not simply the chairman, however many others. That reference, by the best way, is proof of guilt.
And I believe that the people who find themselves discovering out from their wives the that means of the phrase ‘guilt by affiliation’ should not simply his subordinates at NAB however his former SC colleagues. Then there are the numerous who don’t have any different hyperlink with Justice (r) Iqbal past that of his being a fellow man.
I don’t assume PTI is taking a lot curiosity within the matter. Now if it may very well be proved that Nawaz had leaked the clip, then you definitely would have Imran displaying an curiosity. I’m stunned that he confirmed an curiosity within the case of little Farishta, whose ravaged corpse was present in Islamabad, and whose disappearance was reported to the police, which didn’t register it. As an alternative, they requested her father to provide proof of being a Pakistani, not an Afghan refugee. Would which have made a distinction? Is it open season on Afghan little ladies.
The explanation for not coming into the disappearance? The police thought the 10-year-old had eloped. I believe that the actual function was to make a bit of cash. Whoever heard of a report being registered free of charge? Did anybody in PTI not inform it like it’s, and blame Mian Nawaz or ideally Mian Shehbaz?
The entire episode was painful, and known as into query extra emphatically PTI’s proper to rule, even when Imran ordered policemen arrested for neglecting the case. The issue is that the PM can’t even droop the IGP Islamabad, as he want to, not after the Azam Swati incident, when the latter discovered that it was value nothing being a minister when you possibly can not even get an IGP transferred.
I’m wondering if Modi has the identical drawback, even after being elected once more to workplace. He has not received workplace but in his personal capital, which has been dominated by Congress after which by the Aam Aadmi Social gathering. So simply keep in mind, eat beef in India at your individual danger.
Whereas Modi tries to forestall cow-slaughter, our PM would most likely wish to slaughter the cricket crew, whose loss to Afghanistan, solely to entertain Mian Shehbaz Sharif, who’s there lately, reveals how far corrupt parts have gone of their takeover of the cricket crew.
