There must be no gratuitous insults, no personal threats
“It’s in the greater interest of the nation to save the institutional misunderstandings. Prime Minister alone, should handle it, stop it and close it.”
“Running away from any problem only increases the distance from the solution, the easiest way to escape from the problem is to solve it.”
There’s no reassuring sound in these rancorous days of our history with Nawaz’s legal combat on Panama Papers and Dawn Leaks. The debate at the arcane act over the leaks from the Prime Minister Quarters (whether intentionally or unintentionally) and the hype created by the media and anchors has made it a burning topic in the country. We, the general public, mostly gaining knowledge through the media anchors and by the “thara talk”, have made it so contentious that even the very sensitive organisations have to show their concern over it.
There must be no gratuitous insults, no personal threats or childish tantrum – only judges, lawyers and visionary educated class can debate on complex legal issues with respect and restraint. The sound of grown-ups taking responsibility is very important for governing the country, and for people’s lives, to avoid unrest it’s the need of the time.
A sharp contrast to the unfiltered outbursts endured from the Prime Minister quarters, by naming this issue the “Dawn Leaks”, the whole media (especially the hosts of talk shows) and the analysts have twisted it into a panicky war between the two highest offices of the country. Now, almost one year has gone and matter is not only still hanging but once again picking momentum because of chaotic way of the Nawaz government.
Panama Papers and Dawn Leaks have made a huge dent in the Nawaz government. With Saad Rafique’s attacks on judiciary, Khawaja Asif’s anti institutional statements (the one he himself is heading), Maryam Nawaz’s juvenile tweets, Maryam Aurangzeb’s frivolous statements, Danial Aziz’s maddening talk, Abid Sher Ali’s threatening and menacing tone and Nawaz Shareef’s ignorance, PPP by force has joined the anti Nawaz rallies, which can lead to his resignation or an early elections.
Nawaz’s team has a toddler’s vision, which has made him defensive. But, to cover the defense line, his addressing the public gatherings, that too with harsh words is not going to save his existence in the Prime Minister House, rather will boost the matter to oust him.
“He is Prime Minister of all citizens, though they may be affiliated with any party, and remarks against these citizens – especially the ladies – was his immense mistake.”
Secondly his words are not justified as a head of the state. He is Prime Minister of all citizens, though they may be affiliated with any party, and remarks against these citizens – especially the ladies – was his immense mistake.
The Supreme Court has yet not announced a judgment, but has left the book open. That didn’t stop anyone to comment on the issue, which should have been restricted till the final decision. If Nawaz Shareef does not win this case as he so obviously should, we can never have the security and safety to which we are entitled. But till final verdict from the Supreme Court, we have to wait and see. Only after the final word can we come up with any remarks, resentment or argument. Mind it, all the parties had affirmed that they will accept the court’s decision without any objection, which has badly been violated by both the party workers especially the Nawaz Leaguers.
Practically speaking, in fact, the judges did exactly as they should, aggressively questioning both sides and demanding evidence to back up assertions, having found no such ground to announce the proper judgment they decided to form a commission to reach to some conclusion after the thorough investigation on number of points which mainly require the clarification where the funds came from and how the funds got transferred.
JIT’s investigation report is a much quicker and more reliable path to the truth than the newspaper’s cuttings.
Now, the Onus of “Dawn Leaks” has fallen on Tariq Fatmi, advisor to PM for foreign affairs and Rao Tahseen, Principal Information Officer of PM. Parvez Rasheed has been set free and Maryam Safdar has been avoided.
This has been rejected by the army as stated by the ISPR, as well by the Interior Minister Chaudry Nisar. The question remains there, who is responsible for the leaks? Regret to say that the topic which should have been closed much earlier may be with excuse and apology, has yet not been concluded, creating a chaos and misunderstanding between the two most important offices of the country which ultimately affects the government system and governance by which ultimately a common man is affected.
This chapter should immediately be closed, maybe with excuses and apology from the persons involved, maybe the daughter of the Prime Minister or any of the Cabinet Ministers, but requires to be closed with strict warning for any such further leaks. It’s in the greater interest of the nation to save the institutional misunderstandings. Prime Minister alone, should handle it, stop it and close it.
