The cost of being a Muslim League worker – by Humza Ikram

Last week, Shahbaz Shairf finally announced that Nawaz Sharif will not contest the NA 123 election. The official reason given in this regard is that Nawaz Sharif wants to give chance to a party worker who struggled against the Musharaf regime .

But sadly Election commission has disqualified an ex-N league activist Chaudhry Akhtar Rasool (former World Cup winning hockey captain) on the basis of his conviction in Supreme Court’s attack case. The sad part is that unlike Sharif, Ch Akhtar Rasool faced different charges during the Musharaf regime until 2003-04 when he finally joined the Q League.
