Nawaz’s dismissal will embolden terror groups: Indian media

ISLAMABAD, JUL 28 (DNA) – Pakistan as of Friday not favorable for India as according to the neighboring media it would shift the balance of power towards General Headquarters (GHQ) empowering terror groups.

According to the Indian media, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is so strong in the largest province, Punjab and its opponents so weak there that it is likely to “go into the elections as overwhelming favourites.”

Indian media has claimed that there is a strong evidence to support that Pakistan Army was alarmed over former PM Nawaz Sharif’s electoral support and some of the rallies conducted by opposition parties against the federally ruling party were backed by the military.

Hindustan Times has held Nawaz’s dismissal a vulnerable situation for Pakistan-India relations.

“He is disqualified as a member of the parliament so he has ceased to be holding the office of Prime Minister,” Justice Ejaz Afzal Khan told the packed courtroom in Islamabad.

The court also asked the national anti-corruption bureau to launch a further probe into the allegations against Sharif and his family, which could see criminal charges brought against the powerful Sharif dynasty.

The Sharifs and their allies have consistently and noisily rejected the claims against them.

“Not a single penny (of) corruption has been proved in this decision against Nawaz Sharif and the people of Pakistan also know it,” information minister Maryam Aurangzeb told reporters after the decision.

Sharif s ruling PML-N party confirmed he had “relinquished his position”. The party currently has no clear successor in place. Sharif s daughter Maryam is his presumptive political heir but does not hold public office, while his brother Shahbaz Sharif, the current chief minister of Punjab province, holds only a provincial seat.

“Inshallah (God willing) Nawaz Sharif will also be elected again for a fourth time,” Aurangzeb added.
