Nawaz Sharif’s daughter uses Bangladesh PM’s remarks to criticise Pakistan judiciary
In reference to the ongoing anti-corruption probe against Pakistan’s ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s family, his daughter Maryam has said that one bad decision destroys the whole reputation of justice. In a series of tweets on Thursday, Maryam Nawaz Sharif used the example of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina who came down heavily on her country’s chief justice for “humiliating” Bangladesh by comparing the country with Pakistan. She tweeted: “That’s how you are being looked at by other countries. One bad decision (iqama) destroys the whole reputation of justice!” The tweets were accompanied with images of Sheikh Hasina taken from a local television news channel. Maryam, who is also on trial over the family’s wealth and financial dealings, has raised several eyebrows after using the Bangladesh chief justice's fate as reference to defend the recent allegations against her family, reports The Express Tribune. Former chief justice Surendra Kumar Sinha of Bangladesh had told an open court hearing: “We are being very, very patient. The Supreme Court of Pakistan removed the prime minister. Was there any criticism over it? No.” In response to his remarks, without mentioning Justice Sinha’s name, Hasina said: “He should have quit… The most humiliating thing is the comparison with Pakistan which is intolerable.” Bilateral relations between Bangladesh and Pakistan have always been shadowed by the bitter experiences of 1971’s Liberation War of Bangladesh. Bangladesh Awami League strongly criticises Pakistan for instigating militancy and terrorism in the country. The Pakistan Supreme Court disqualified Sharif from office in July over unreported sources of annual income of about $10,000, an amount the former premier denies ever receiving. The high court also ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to investigate and conduct a trial into the Sharif family’s wider finances, including the London properties. In another tweet, Maryam continued to criticise the judgement of the apex court against her father and said that the decision will be remembered for decades, as a bad example. She wrote: “Honourable judges were right, the decision will be remembered for decades, as a bad example. Murder of justice will have its consequences.”
