@Amir Khan:

You forgot to mention this is the same clown who tried to get himself appointed as 'Amir-ul-Momineen'! So not only are the Sharif family corrupt, and cheats, but they also think they are superior to everyone else! Offcourse, when they were in Adiala jail in 1999, and complaining of mosquitos biting them, then the false-bravado came crashing down !

@Muslim Leaguer:

PML-N supporters are only a handful but your memories are as thin as Sharif's hair! Ittefaq foundation scandal, steel mills scandal, looting the zakat fund, motorway scam, writing off all the loans for the Sharif family factories, not to mention the source of funds for the Raiwind palace and the Jeddah estate, AND the million pound apartments in London! The corruption starts and ends with the Sharif family. They have looted from every source in Pakistan including the Zakat fund. When food is served at Raiwind, it is from the money of Pakistanis that they stole and now its time for them to pay the piper. Hisaab time for the Sharif brotharan is here.
