Writing on the wall
It defies logic how, in spite of an increasing number of people rallying against him, Nawaz Sharif still clings to his position as Prime Minister of Pakistan. One would imagine he’d take a hint; as more and more people gain the courage to speak their mind by refusing to sit by and watch as political figures abuse their positions of power, it is slowly and gradually becoming evident for Mr. Sharif that, for him, time is running out. The article, ‘Why is Nawaz Not Resigning?’ is an adequate representation of the challenges Nawaz Sharif faces as well as of his fastdepleting options. Whether he decides to resign from his post or continue his reign as Prime Minister, the leader of the PML-N is pretty much damned if he does or doesn’t.
It is very interesting to note how eloquently the writer of the article has presented the hardcore facts of the various hardships the current establishment will have to face at the hands of both Imran Khan and Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri. A forewarning of sorts, this piece does not beat about the bush; instead, it portrays a plausible picture of what can and might happen should circumstances be allowed to go as they are.
