    Will some one dare to sentence Babar ghauri, Haider Abbas, Raza haroon, Ishrat ul Ibaad? Will some one recover all the incentives and allownces and wages and development from these traitors which they took in 5 years with false documentation?

    How about rehman malik and rest of 20 MNA’s and MPA’s?

    Either sentence all of them or leave the all of them and same case in fake degree holders..

    Who is going to sentence Ch Nisar and sheikh waqas akram and rest of around 200 politicians?

    Once all of these politicians gets sentence then next time ECP should implement a rule that anyone who has been in prison can not contest in any election.. Simple as that !!

    Dual nationality does not mean disloyalty. Dual nationals from China, India, South Korea have acted as a bridge for trade and cultural exchange between the West and their countries of birth.I suggest, that political offices in Pakistan should be tied to the “residency” status for those who were born in Pakistan.
    If someone has a UK passport, but he/she is living in Pakistan for say 5 years (or whatever limit there is), have not committed a crime, worked with an employer, or ran a business, and paid taxes, then he should not be barred from taking part in the country’s politics.
