It seems Pakistan’s problems are not going to end soon. The conflict between the civilian government and the military is escalating in Pakistan with every passing day. Pakistan which has a notorious distinction that no civilian Government has completed its complete turn ever since independence. Recently Nawaz Sharif was dismissed by Supreme Court due to his association with panama Scam.
And merely few days after the Ex-PM Nawaz Sharif was disqualified from his position as the Prime Minister of Pakistan by the judgement of the Supreme Court in the Panama Gate, the Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) Prime Minister has hit out at the Pakistan Army and has threatened an intent to be annexed by another country.
POK Prime Minister Farooq Haidar Khan has made this explosive statement just after Nawaj Sharif’s disqualification, ‘WE WILL HAVE TO RETHINK IF WE WANT TO BE WITH PAKISTAN OR WHICH COUNTRY WE WANT TO BE A PART OF’.
This is undoubtedly a very strong message to the Pakistan Army and Pakistani Government by the POK PM who is himself a part of the PML (N) which is in power in Islamabad. Haider made the statement while addressing a joint press conference with Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Hafiz Hafeezur Rehman.
Haider added that once again the doctrine of necessity has been created, and that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) would not allow the democratic process to derail.
He also added that the disqualification of Sharif was humiliating insult to the Office of Prime Minister and the Nation. Meanwhile, he also questioned the fairness of the trial as Nawaz Sharif was not allowed to appeal in court.
Judiciary of Pakistan is usually called the only constitutional body of Pakistan which has tremendous support of Pakistani Citizens, they are known for always having loggerheads with the civilian governments in Pakistan.
However this case has no relation with the occupation or Ajaadi of POK, if they are making such provocative statements then it seems something is happening in POK. Is this an opportunity for India to take some steps to act in POK? Only time will tell.
