‘Your dream treason trial’ – Dubai travel agents offer ‘Musharraf package’ for dam fund critics

(Disclaimer: this is a work of fiction. Learn to take a joke; you’ll live longer.)

DUBAI – Dubai based travel agents are offering the critics of Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar’s Diamer-Bhasha Dam Fund the increasingly popular ‘Musharraf package’.

The package, which is going viral on social media pages, is being offered following the CJP’s insistence that the critics of the dam fund be tried for treason.

“Your dream treason trial” reads a popular advertising banner of a Dubai based travel agency, which has been replicated by agents in Pakistan and the UAE to lure customers from around the country.

“Infinite nights and infinite days, full-board, fully furnished flat, in downtown Dubai – all for a minor fraction of the money you have misappropriated using your job position,” read the details of the package in the banner.

Interviews with multiple agents confirm that an increasing number of people are signing up for the package.

“We’re modifying the details to come up with tailor-made packages for dam critics who might not be as well off, given the package that we’re showing involves a person whose level of misappropriation is matched only by a select few,” a travel agent told The Dependent.

Following suit, lawyers have also begun offering the ‘Musharraf package’ for dam fund critics for the eventual treason trials.

“Those under trial will be exempt from appearing in the court, but will regularly appear on TV and enjoy their Dubai vacation with ease,” a legal firm’s advertisement read.
