A War Between Pakistans Police and Army: Sharif Familys Latest Reckless Gamble

Pakistanis have seen a rapid downfall in Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s powers in less than two weeks.

His dramatic collapse is the result of political blunders in fifteen months in government.

Yet instead of resolving the political crisis and uniting the country, the embattled prime minister and the Sharif family are spending money on the media and some journalists and politicians to run an organized, reckless and dangerous attack on the nation’s military.

The military is an easy way for the Sharifs to divert attention away from their political failures.

The plan seeks to turn Pakistanis against their military through a daily dose of disinformation. Supporters of the embattled prime minister sitting in responsible positions in government and media have gone as far as pitching Pakistan’s Police and Military against each other.

In doing all this, the premier and the Sharif dynasty are playing an extreme political game. Government’s actions represent the lowest point in our political history.

There is a reason why Nawaz Sharif is described as the most humiliated prime minister in Pakistan’s history, or why one western news wire service described him as the new Deputy Commissioner of Islamabad in terms of his reduced power and influence. [See Nawaz Sharif: The New Karzai of Islamabad]

The charge sheet against PM Sharif is along:


  1. This is a prime minister who failed to unite Pakistanis after the May 2013 elections
  2. He arrogantly would not shake hands with many elected representatives that he disliked.
  3. He did not attend a single session of the Senate of Pakistan.
  4. He rarely attended Parliament sessions.
  5. He failed to rise above old political rivalries that date back a decade, and allowed those hatreds to come in the way of his job to unite Pakistanis.
  6. He allowed a simple case of possible election fraud in four constituencies to snowball into a major political movement.
  7. Lack of political skill. While this political crisis was developing, Sharif missed numerous opportunities to nip it in the bud.
  8. Overkill in Lahore. On 17 June, he and his younger brother ordered the police to open fire on unarmed and peaceful Pakistanis in Lahore. Fourteen were killed, nearly a hundred injured. One of the killed was a young pregnant mother.
  9. Overkill in Islamabad. On the night of Aug. 31 and Sept. 1, he turned Islamabad into a war zone and unleashed the most tear-gas shelling in Pakistan’s history on unarmed peaceful protesters who demanded his resignation. Three were killed and nearly 700 were injured.
  10. In dealing with this crisis, Sharif created the biggest security scare Pakistanis have seen in peacetime, sealed one of the five provinces that make up the country, and seized all commercial cargo containers to block streets in Punjab and the federal capital, and generally mishandled a normal political event.
  11. The prime minister stood on the Parliament floor and lied to the nation about who asked the army to broker a solution to the crisis. The military was forced to correct the record through an official statement.

In committing all of these blunders, Nawaz Sharif failed to demonstrate wisdom and experience that should have come handy to a third-time elected premier, the first in Pakistan and one of the few in world democracies.

Even now, in 21 days of the anti-Nawaz protest in Islamabad, Sharif has failed to act magnanimously to solve what primarily is a political issue, not a security issue.

Instead, his family, party and some journalists and politicians allied to him through incentives, have launched a ferocious anti-military campaign to divert attention from his political failures.

The campaign, in the media, parliament and on social media, seeks to portray Sharif as a victim of a military-induced conspiracy, or ‘script’ where Pakistanis protesting against the Sharifs are military’s creation.

The purpose of this campaign is to turn the debate away from his political failures and blame someone else.

The truth, however, is bitter. Since 2008, Pakistan’s military has emerged as the strongest supporter of democracy in the country, and ignored numerous opportunities to intervene in favor of strengthening the government.

The ‘script’ of the Sharifs and PMLN fails to explain whether it was the military that stopped Nawaz Sharif from failing to unite the nation after elections, arrogantly refuse to solve a political issue before it snowballs, and order the murder of 14 Pakistanis in Lahore, and three in Islamabad and injure a total of 1,000 Pakistanis in both cities?

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif should own up his political blunders, recognize his failures that led to a crisis and led his opponents to come out to streets, and stop blaming the military.

As his old comrade Javed Hashmi said in the parliament, thirty-one years at the top of politics is a long time. It is time Nawaz Sharif gracefully resigned to spare Pakistan more instability.

Pasha Party paid channels and anchors stupid story.

All knows when fassadi conspirators crossed RED LINE, how Police reacted.

It was Ch Nisar Brutus who tried to create embarrassment and well naked to all. Point was of Article 245, well questioned by all. Why Army did not react as per law, whereas under same article displayed vigour in Swat, Karachi and Lal Masjid operations.

Pathans are realistic to say, 245 is not for Punjabi fassadi.

completely asinine article. The writer is a poodle of Musharraf and has objections to every real political party. NS just got a vote of confidence from EVERY party in parliament and senate excluding PTI. Those parties are elected by people all over Pakistan. While NS is representing sum-total of Pakistan Qadri and IK have only a couple of thousand mureeds/ fanboys to show for them.

Saying that IK has just couple of thousand fanboys shows you credibility were it is a known fact that IK got 76 hundred thousand votes in the elections, and if you are trying to prove that NS is a Ligit PM by getting a vote of confidence from the members whom election was defined by your own interior minister saying that in each constituency there are 60 to 70 thousand votes which are unvarifiable, which means they have reached the parliament by a fake mandait which nither your PM nor all of them can justify. This parliament is a bunch of crooks and you PM has stolen the premiership which he do not deserve.

There is a difference between supporters who vote and workers which come out at call of the party - do you see 76 hundred thousand at the rally? PM is the elcted PM until and unless a court of law declares otherwise you can sit there and accuse that PM only got a single vote from all of Pakistan.

Your part elected president just declared that IK was working with khakis to commit an illegal coup since you put so much weight to interior minister perhaps you should give your party 'elected' president some thought too.

Are you siphoning off some Zakat from SKMH funds for giving fatwas who has sold his deen? Stick to the topic, its a well known tradition now in this forum that when PTI trolls start to lose a argument they come up with most asinine personal attacks to derail the thread. Your post has nothing to do with my original post, get a life.

Does it matter if one person is asking for justice one hundered of thousands, no it doesn't. If IK alone is standing there for justice, he is enough to get it, which seems unreal in Pakistan as the justice is sold here just like the CJ was bought by the noon league.
Talking about JH is useless as it is a known fact that he was planted in PTI, As his calls are detected. He had been in contact with PMNL all the time and sold his sole to them for giving them internal news and influence the party. He is a traitor just like his bosses, An American minister said that for money they can sell their mothers, and he said that when Nawaz sharief took $200 million for giving away Amel kansi who killed two CIA agents.
