Twitter Debates Over Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz Arrival in Pakistan

Ex-Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif are coming back to Pakistan to serve a prison sentence in Avenfield reference case.

While Nawaz Sharif and his daughter have departed from Abu Dhabi and set to reach Lahore by 8:00 according to the latest media reports, Pakistani Twitter is going through a severe debate on the matter.

Debate on Pakistani Social Media Upon Nawaz Sharif Arrival

Life in Lahore, the capital of Punjab has become to an almost standstill as the government has suspended internet service, mobile service and blocked the ways by putting containers on most of the roads and highways to maintain the law and order situation.

Earlier, police also arrested several PMLN workers and local political leaders who were all set to reach Lahore airport for welcoming the party leader who is coming back to surrender.

Here is how Pakistani people, politicians, bloggers, and journalists are viewing this situation.

A majority of liberals, political leaders, and pro-PMLN social media users are criticizing the crackdown on ex-ruling party’s workers in wake of Nawaz Sharif’ arrival.

And, PTI leader Asad Umer was quick to remind them how PML-N curbed the political activities of opponents by killing people in Model Town when the party was in government.

Parwaz Hai Junoon actor Hamza Ali Abbasi who also happens to be a PTI leader claims things that disqualified prime minister and his daughter Maryam Nawaz who are facing corruption charges, must not receive media coverage.

On Political Victimization of PML-N

Those Sympathizing with Nawaz Sharif

Ex-PM of Pakistan who was disqualified on charges of corruption had left Pakistan with his daughter Maryam Nawaz one month before to visit of his wife in the hospital. He is coming to the country to serve the sentence while leaving behind his comatose who is on the ventilator. Earlier, today a picture went viral where father and daughter can be seen standing by their wife and mother Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

Many people are sympathizing with Nawaz Sharif for facing such a critical situation in his political career at the time when his wife is on the deathbed.

Why So Hype Around Ex-PM’s Arrival in Pakistan?

All eyes are set on Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz’s arrival to Pakistan. Even international media is reporting the event. The general narrative about the ex-premier’s return, government’s crackdown on PMLN workers and Nawaz Sharif’s prison sentence as a result of Avenfield Reference is divided into Pro-PTI, Pro-Establishment and Pro-PML-N point of view in the country. Many liberal intellectuals think that Nawaz Sharif is paying the cost for his narrative on the relationship with India. And, Imran Khan’s rising popularity is because the establishment is favoring him as the next prime minister of Pakistan in a bid to let down PML-N.

Even many journalists and writers have gone to an extent to laud the bravery and courage of Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif and comparing the duo to Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and his daughter late Benazir Bhutto.

It wouldn’t be wrong at all to sum up that in the history of Pakistan all that debate has always been about Politicians vs. Establishment. It has never been about people vs. atrocity, injustice, and corruption, except that politicians at the receiving end portray themselves as the true representative of the people when their turn to face the wrath of status-quo comes.
