One cannot help but applaud the immense “sacrifice” Punjab’s new viceroy, Chaudhry Sarwar has made. He has sacrificed his UK nationality in larger national interest and taken over as Governor of Punjab. Off course, the Sharifs couldn’t find one able bodied person amongst the 110 million population of Punjab or nearly 200 million from all of Pakistan and had to import Chaudhry Sarwar to be a constitutional head of the largest province of Pakistan.
New viceroy of Punjab! Media is quiet. Judges will remain quiet!!
While his sacrifice of surrendering his nationality of UK may be a meaningless matter for me, the double standards that our media and the judges have shown on this matter sickens me! No one dares question the Sharifs as to why they had to import a Governor or has Chaudhry Sarwar pledged again to Pakistan. He must have pledged allegiance to the British Monarchy when he got a British citizenship. Has he now pledged that he will have nothing to do with Britain and will not be a subject. There has got to be an oath now to be taken by him! How come the media is not raising hue and cry on this? How come the cheater of cheaters, Iftikhar Chaudhry not taking suo moto notice? Off course, he did what he had to with Tahir ul Qadri. He has made a mockery of a number of elected parliamentarians. But he would dare not say anything to someone appointed by the Sharifs or maybe that the new viceroy of Punjab is also a “Chaudhry”.
Media’s silence is baffling. I guess all of their energies were spent in the five years PPP was in power. It is this media which was responsible for the assassination of a real Lion of Punjab, Salmaan Taseer. Salmaan Taseer was targeted on a daily basis by the media. His family life was exposed, his travels were talked about, his business was targeted, he was alleged to have been conspiring to kill a sitting chief justice and then eventually got him killed on charges of blasphemy. When it comes to the Sharifs, the media is completely quiet. There are no 10 articles a day on the appointment of a viceroy!
