16 October, 2017
TAXILA: Retired Captain Mohammad Safdar, a member of the National Assembly and son-in-law of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, has claimed that he was humiliated by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) constituted by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case.
Addressing the participants of the Urs of Darbar Azeemia in Saalikabad Shareef near Hassanabdal on Sunday, he assailed Wajid Zia, head of the JIT, saying: “Wajid Sahib, your Volume-10 has been closed, but our volumes 11 and 12 would be opened and would never be closed by anyone.”
Attock Deputy Commissioner Rana Akbar Hayat was also present on the occasion.
Capt Safdar said Nawaz Sharif had been disqualified as prime minister because he had made the country a nuclear and economic power. Without naming anyone, he said: “Our many friends have left us when we are in troubled waters.”
The MNA said he had entered the parliamentary politics to protect the finality of Prophethood of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and promote his teachings.
He paid tribute to Mumtaz Qadri, who was hanged for assassinating former Punjab governor Salmaan Taseer, and urged the participants of the congregation to pray for the early recovery of Kulsoom Nawaz, who is undergoing cancer treatment in the United Kingdom.
