The Sharifs (??) are back in town

After eight years in exile, former prime minister of Pakistan, Mian Nawaz Sharif has returned to Pakistan amidst an ecstatic welcome from thousands of his supporters on Sunday at the Lahore airport. Today he plans to register his candidacy ahead of the deadline for Pakistan’s upcoming elections in Jan 2008.

The arrival on Sunday of one of Musharraf’s harshest critics was a fresh challenge for the president, who has faced intense domestic and international condemnation since he declared a state of emergency on Nov. 3, locking up thousands of opponents, purging the Supreme Court and muzzling the media.

Speaking to his supporters on Sunday from the top of a truck that was his transport from the airport to his home, he wasted no time in jumping in to the pit and slammed Pervez Musharraf  for still imposing the emergency rule.

“Musharraf has taken this country to the brink of destruction,” he said, When the constitution, fundamental rights are suspended, when people live difficult lives, when judges who make decisions according to the constitution are ousted, will elections in such a situation not be a fraud?”

The series of events that led to Nawaz’s return have been shrouded in mystery starting with President Musharraf’s sudden visit to Saudi Arabia that was cut short with his swift return back. That was followed by Saudi Arabia government arranging a special flight for Nawaz Sharif to return back to Pakistan. During all this, both President Musharraf and Nawaz Sharif denied all rumors of mutual talks or any ‘deal’ being done which in itself is quite a questionable claim judging from the way things are turning up.

Man it sickens me to see all these lotas do all the a** licking in the world and only damage Pakistan and its image in the world. And then they all turn around and try to justify it under the banner of Patriotism. All bullshit.
