Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been shown the door in the Panama papers case. It was a matter of shame for Sharif. He was inciting terror on India and was trying to score brownie point on that count instead of ruling the country peacefully. He was not maintaining cordial relationship with both China and India and now face the music from his own court of law. He paid price for complacency and now is unseated from the post of Prime Minister. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely as in the case of Nawaz Sharif. Sharif was trying to make quick buck through off shore dealings, which benefitted him and his family members. The leaks in shoddy dealings came in open in 2016. The benami firms have used to channel funds for acquiring funds and buy some areas in London’s Mayfair area. The insinuation is that these companies were meant to hide launder ill-gotten wealth and Sharif’s family stand in that rank. Now everything is in open and he can lead a proxy rule in the name of his brother and how long it will last is an open question as the army is ready to pounce on the PM for a coup and take the country by storm.
