Nawaz Sharif is in pole position, but governance is a steep task in Pakistan

With PML (N) veteran leader Nawaz Sharif taking the pole position in Pakistan general elections today, India should expect stability on its western borders for at least for next three years as Mian Sahib has not only the blessings of Rawalpindi GHQ but also a mature experienced leader unlike his predecessor and now incarcerated Imran Khan and childish PPP leader Bilawal Zardari.

However, whosoever the Pakistan public elects as the new leader, the country is no bed of roses and the next Prime Minister will have to deal with problems ranging from a pathetic economy, rampant insurgency in Balochistan and KPK, a state within state terrorist groups in Punjab province and a highly radicalized Islamic society within the exalted sense of geographical identity. Simply put, Pakistan is a failed state thriving on doles from China, which uses Islamabad in its effort to contain its arch-rival India.

While there is no doubt that the Pakistan Army is the biggest stakeholder in India’s neighbouring country and runs the Islamic Republic from the shadows, Nawaz Sharif is the best bet for Rawalpindi as its experiment with the unscrupulous Imran Khan failed miserably. Sharif has been removed by Pakistan President, Pakistan Army and Pakistan Supreme Court in the past, yet has the nerve to trudge his path. His last tenure as PM was numbered after the word Kashmir, smelling salts for all Punjabi Pakistanis, was found amiss in the India-Pakistan joint statement at Ufa on July 10, 2015, after Nawaz Sharif met Prime Minister Narendra Modi. But then the same word was found missing when Nawaz Sharif came for PM Modi’s swearing-in ceremony on May 26, 2014, even during the one-to-one the two leaders had after the ceremony.

Nawaz Sharif

While the leftist-liberal media of the Indian sub-continent and the West tries to draw an equivalence between India and Pakistan by calling them nuclear-powered rivals, the fact is that the Modi government has only cross-border terrorism on its agenda with Pakistan having moved on from Islamabad in the past decade of Narendra Modi. Since PM Modi respects Nawaz Sharif, India will give another chance to normalise ties with Pakistan if the PML (N) leader takes the chair but its objectives insofar as Pakistan is concerned will remain unchanged. Bluntly put, India will not take cross-border terrorism lying down and will retaliate in kind.

In case Nawaz Sharif becomes the PM of Pakistan, then trade and traditional ties may resume with Islamabad provided the new PM takes action against rabidly anti-India Punjabi terrorist groups in Pakistan. The fact is that Pakistan can ill-afford to heat its eastern border with terrorism as its western front is burning with both Iran and Afghanistan upset at the machinations of the Pakistani deep state and Baluch and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) insurgency at its peak.

Unlike his predecessors, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not looking for any legacy with Pakistan and is crystal clear on what to expect from the rabidly radicalized state. With Nawaz Sharif as PM, there should be a semblance of stability on India’s western front though it will take Pakistan decades to come out of the economic and political abyss that it is currently finding itself in. And for that Pakistan Army and its unscrupulous politicians are to be blamed.

Nawaz Sharif’s possible comeback to Pakistan as prime minister presents a complicated mix of prospects and difficulties. Even if Sharif’s leadership might bring about a time of relative stability, particularly about India-Pakistan ties, he still has the difficult challenge of leading a country dealing with serious political, economic, and security problems. With meaningful steps taken against terrorism, his experience and historical attitude to India may open the door for the restoration of commerce and historical relations. But whatever whoever leads, Pakistan’s road to recovery and peace is likely to be a difficult one, given the Pakistan Army’s overwhelming power and the nation’s deeply ingrained issues.

Swati Maliwal Breaks Down in Court During Bibhav Kumar’s Bail Hearing Over Assault Allegations

At Bibhav Kumar’s bail hearing for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s assistant, who was detained for allegedly assaulting Maliwal, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Swati Maliwal lost it on Monday in Delhi’s Tis Hazari court when the defense attorney was arguing. The AAP MP entered Kejriwal’s home without permission, according to senior attorney N Hariharan, who is representing Kumar in court. Bibhav Kumar wasn’t inside the CM’s residence at that time.

Would anyone be able to enter in this way?The chief minister resides here officially. Her arrival was not announced in any way, and she didn’t have a scheduled time for the encounter. At the moment, Kumar wasn’t around. When she was halted by security, she asked to speak with Kumar while sitting in the waiting area, according to the defense attorney. There was “no grievous injury” to the AAP MP, he added before the court.

“Examine the location of the purported incident, where a large crowd was present.In what way is this location—CM’s home—where such an incident can occur? The question of whether culpable homicide does not qualify as murder is not raised because there is no significant harm to the important portion. According to him, the wounds may have been self-inflicted. Maliwal’s accusations, according to the defense attorney, “do not make out a case of intention to disrobe her.” The AAP MP sobbed in court after making this claim. The accusations made by Maliwal, according to N Hariharan, were all “pre-planned” and “tailored” to “suit her story.”

“Afterthought led to the completion of this FIR.He told the judge, “I am merely asking for bail; I am not asking for an acquittal. After Maliwal accused Bibhav Kumar in a formal complaint of beating her on May 13 at Kejriwal’s house, Bibhav Kumar was taken into custody on May 18. Kumar repeatedly slapped her and kicked her in the stomach and pelvis, according to the FIR. Sections 354, 506, 509, and 323 of the IPC, which address offenses like assault or criminal force on a lady with intent to insult her modesty and criminal intimidation, are where the police filed a FIR against Kumar after receiving the complaint.

Later, Kejriwal’s assistant reported to the Delhi police that the AAP MP had mistreated him with the intention of assaulting him. After Kumar filed a bail request at the Delhi court on Saturday, the court requested an answer from the Delhi police regarding the situation.
