ISLAMABAD: Amid activities continued in Saudi Arabia to shield corruption of Sharif family, the ambassador of Saudi Arabia has made a telephone call to Chairman Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf(PTI) and took him into confidence, saying categorically that his country has no intention to intervene into affairs of Pakistan.
Reliable sources told that Saudi envoy Nawaf Saeed Al-Maliki made a telephone call to Chairman Pakistan Tehrik Insaaf (PTI) to address the grievances regarding Sharif brothers’ engagements and also assured him towards Saudi government that their government has no concerns with Mian Nawaz Sharif and his family’s cases in accountability courts or any other affairs. He said Saudi Arabia does not believe in interference of Pakistan’s internal matters.
Sources said that Imran Khan has categorically gave message to Saudi ambassador that if his country will play any role to shield the corrupt Pakistani politicians then it was ruin its prestige among Pakistani people as the Pakistani people have great attachment with holy places in Saudi Arabia while Saudi Arabian government was herself waging a war against menace of corruption as the Saudi princes were imprisoned who have had plundered the national wealth. In this perspective, if the Saudi government has played any role to protect the corrupt Pakistani family then it would be counted as dual standard of the Saudi Arabia against corruption.
It is worth to mention that presence of CM Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif and Railway Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique in Saudi Arabia and departure of Nawaz Sharif has verified the news about NRO. It has created atmosphere of distrust among PTI, PPP, PMLQ and PAT about Saudi government. It was the Saudi Arabian government, which helped rescue Nawaz Sharif some seventeen years ago from Attock fort and let him allowed to start billions dollar business while after passage of thirty five years, Sharif family has come into clutches of law for the first time in its political career and once again Saudi rulers have started efforts to rescue Sharif family and a bid was being made to strike deal beyond the law and constitution.
Almost all opposition parties are unanimous to launch country wide campaign against Saudi Arab if it will make any bid to rescue Nawaz Sharif from the law. Most interesting thing is that Saudi Arabian government is torturing princes who have looted from national exchequer while on the other hand was active to save corrupt Sharif family.
Muttahida Opposition in its new strategy has made it clear that sacred land of Saudi Arabia would not let use for corruption shield treaty.
