QUETTA: The disqualified prime minister is rather adamant on seeking support from his party’s prime minister over his statements on Mumbai attacks. A wiser move would have been to apologetically reinforce than state that his statements have been misconstrued, which nonetheless is hard to believe.
The rash PM is repeatedly implying the truthfulness of his statements in perhaps some other context that many failed to understand and something that is entirely not against the military intelligence of the country.
Previously, Nawaz Sharif also faced backlash of a similar intensity after his meeting with Indian businessman Sajjan Jindal last year. The recent backlash against his anti-state statements is the second such massive backlash for his acts that raise questions about his loyalty towards the country.
