'India's Prime Minister is a terrorist,' Khawaja Asif says Pakistan's foreign minister newsreporter.in
The war of words between India and Pakistan has taken an ugly turn with the latter's foreign minister calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "terrorist".
Pakistan's foreign minister Khawaja Asif was responding to Union minister Sushma Swaraj's recent comment at the UN that his country is a "pre-eminent export factory for terror."
Nawaz Sharif is pushed out of office for the third time, the former prime minister of Pakistan is probably used to this to-ing and fro-ing. Still trying to retain some hold on the prime minister's office, he has now ensured that his brother Shehbaz Sharif, who is the current chief minister of the Punjab province, steps into his office. Nawaz would hope that Shehbaz should last at least till the polls in June 2018.
However, it's not going to be so easy this time. Even a cursory perusal of the timeline of the events in the court, which began in mid-2016, shows that the court is in no mood to let things slide. Indeed, in comparison to most of the South Asian courts, it is mysteriously active. First, it refused to take on board any of the petitions by the political opposition terming them "frivolous". After all, the cases being cited against Nawaz were more than two decades old and had been the subject of allegations since the 1980s.
The political future of Pakistan's embattled Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will be decided on Friday by the Supreme Court when it will announce its much-awaited verdict in the Panamagate case in which he and his family are accused of corruption.
The scandal is about alleged money laundering by Sharif in 1990s, when he twice served as prime minister, to purchase assets in London. The assets surfaced when Panama Papers leak last year revealed that they were managed through offshore companies owned by Sharif's children. The assets include four expensive flats in London.
Sharif, who has been the prime minister of Pakistan for a record three time, faces the risk of being disqualified if the court finds him guilty of corruption and money laundering.
