The narrative that bounced back

In the post Panama phase of the Pakistani politics and especially after being disqualified by the Supreme Court of Pakistan the PMLN formed a very clear offensive policy glorified by the diatribe against the state institutions the day in and the day out. The aggression was so much that even a commoner understood that the party is committing contempt of court on one pretext or the other as a matter of policy. Actually the party didn’t try to hide its designs at all. The agenda was very clear and the party pursued it vigorously. Interestingly those without any constituency were more vocal against the institution, perhaps because their survival in politics is at mercy of their master in politics i.e. Nawaz Sharif.

First we witnessed Nihal Hashmi. This was stupidity at its worst that he literally threatened the state institutions with dire consequences. What is the constituency of Nihal Hashmi by the way? He can’t win the election of a union council on its own. If one borrows the diction of Ch Nisar he qualifies to be called a political orphan who has to make his masters happy at any cost for his own survival and who can’t even think to differ from the master. He faced the music in the end and is on mute these days.

Then we witnessed Danyal Aziz and Talal Ch. Both are political orphans in the term of Ch Nisar. Once they served Gen Musharraf and after his removal they changed their master and their loyalty. Same is with Pervez Rasheed. He has no value in constitutional politics. His politics solely depends upon his master’s pleasure.

The aim of this sham practice is to bring the court under pressure. This has been proven an ultimate failure. The narrative has bounced back. Courts are not under pressure. They are deciding as per the law of the land.
