Its beginning not the end

July 13, 2017

After the JIT report which was precisely predictable government circles are announcing the scenario scripted to consume conspiracy. On the other hand, the opposition parties are forcefully demanding Mian Nawaz Sharif’s resignation. However, none of the party showed sympathy to those investors who had lost more than 630 billion rupees when Pakistan Stock Exchange crashed. It’s still continued because confidence of investors shaking.
It will also be said to be sad that the JIT report has fully exposed shameful and controversial series that has continued by of the country’s elite. For example, the government constituencies are trying to give impression that the JIT report and the judicial procedure are horribly affecting not only the whole country but the ongoing democratic system also. They are portraying it as a conspiracy against N League, but not telling the bitter truth that neither Nawaz Sharif nor his family are the name of democracy. The Muslim League leadership in its practice, trying to emphasize Mian Nawaz Sharif’s importance more than the democratic process and the ongoing system. On the other hand they are still unable to understand that in democratic process the ruling power can be accountable.  Unfortunately, our political parties depend on personalities not manifestos and ideology.
It will be said to be unfortunate that even when the government is organizing a meeting in closed rooms, the opposition parties are also holding meeting.  In order to get rid of the situation and set forth the process, parties should call party workers’ meetings so that workers also considered themselves as part of the ongoing democratic process. Mian Nawaz Sharif could set an example by resigning in graceful way before appearing JIT. Sadly, he missed that opportunity, but there is still time that Mian Nawaz Sharif should resign and fight for justice and take over his position again which is the only way of democracy.
It should be assured that the state provide legal opportunities to defend Sharif family before court. The state should also ensure that accountability process will continue across the board because it is the beginning not the end.
