Why has Niazi, SMQ, Tareen and Asad Umar bend over backwards to beg Ishaq Dar for a truce and face saving in the form of that toothless Judicial Commission? Does your leadership has any shame that it had to cajole a corrupt money launderer? Where are real estate businesses in London? Share their address. What are the names of the towers in Dubai? Show their title deeds. You having that mass in your upper deck called a brain is what a myth is.
