Malik to Sharif brothers: You are the kings of liars

Published: April 29, 2012

ISLAMABAD: Continuing his diatribe against the Sharif brothers, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Sunday that he will prove that the PML-N leaders are the “kings of liars”. Malik has already begun preparations to file a reference to the National Accountability Bureau against the Sharif family, Express News reported.

Speaking to the media in Islamabad, Malik again alleged he had evidence that the leaders had siphoned off public funds worth $32 million.

The interior minister said he will present the evidence before the Supreme Court within a week, adding that if Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif have the “courage” they can challenge his claims. “If they (Sharif brothers) are not guilty, they should prove me wrong.”

He added that if PML-N threatens him, he will respond with “ten threats.”

Malik claims that a high court in London passed a judgment declaring the Sharif brothers defaulters. “It was the people’s money that they had plundered and taken to London.”

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Pervez Rasheed snubbed Malik’s allegations and said they have been rejected by different courts many times in the past.

Malik has crossed limits, says Chaudhry Nisar

In response to Malik’s tirade, Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that the interior minister has crossed all limits in order to accuse Sharif brothers.

Speaking during a press conference in Islamabad, Nisar criticised Malik’s media talk and asked him to make all the proofs against his party leadership public.

    Because ppp believes in reconcilliatory politics. do you even knoe the meaning of RECONCILITION, this is purana kia dhara maaf and strating fresh. So ppp kept their end of the bargain. Without Zardaris’ permission Nawaj shif and his brother could have never come this far. Zardari has shown greatness many a time but you like only what you like not what common man likes. The poor are still with ppp, regardless of your negative rhetoric.Recommend

    He further stated that,

    if they adopted a option of long march,
    there are many options on the table,we can adopt more significant
    than ”Long March”

    It mean, there is test day of both the poor party workers,they should know,there is bad blood in between president and former prime minister ,game of allegation and counter allegation is going on,

    Rashid and Rehman are in the arena, wrestling is expected,it looks matter of days,they are paid wrestlers fight for pay,common worker is real fighter who fight for cause,but I would like to advice them be avoided becoming scapegoat because they are fighting for pet interests not poor common man.

    In politics,for successful agitation against the incumbent rulers,
    dead bodies,killed by police or law enforcing agency,are essential.

    Some concerned quarters want the same situation,because they have felt
    their turn has disappeared in the darkness of corruption,notwithstanding the fact
    that they know 2013 is election year and also may be held in the same year.
    They should express patience.

    Request to Nawaz and Gilani:

    I know Mian Sahib like Cricket, possibly Gilani can rely on his team for good batters if not himself. What I am saying is: Gentlemen! An open-to-public Cricket match between you two is In-Order. Please don't take away this excellent opportunity for Pak Audience, we been through rough and tough with you guys for quite a long time.

    Pick two umpires of your choice one each from Army and Judiciary(or Clergy for all I care). Let’s see your the guts in the pitch. Let’s throw some fireworks in the field by each team holding the other to stand down, atleast from verbal attack if looses. My-bro Nawaz must be itching for a match and Gilani as the ruler must honor that. Lets do it people!

    The people came out from their houses and assembled around him,because they loved the judiciary,they loved the man who stood against the dictator and refused to resign on the indication of military might.

    he moved to his destination and the whole nation followed him,lawyer movement was part of his struggle.He succeeded in his mission.

    But some quarters understand,they restored the judiciary, it is suspicion has been created in their minds,he became great hurdle in the way any expected military take over and custodian of country’s constitution.

    Resulting in democracy began flourishing and still stood on its feet,many chances came and gone but no one dared to occupied the power or toppling the democratically elected government.

    So called champion of democracy should care and move forward ,should not provide further opportunity to the boots walking around the power corridors .
