Pakistanis Express Mixed Emotions As ‘Qoum Ki Beti’ Makes JIT Appearance

The latest case of political turmoil that has caught up with Pakistan lately, the Panama Scandal, has entered into its penultimate week. Just a day after Prime Minister Nawaz Shareef was honoring the Pakistan Cricket team in the Prime Minister Secretariat, his daughter appeared before the JIT in acrimonious circumstances.

The Panama scandal is about to be resolved, with only five days left of the 60 day tenure for investigating the matter given to the Joint Investigation Team by the Supreme Court of Pakistan. Almost all of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family members have appeared before the JIT- all three of his children, his brother Shahbaz Sharif, his brother in law Ishaq Dar, and of course the PM himself. On Wednesday, July 5, Maryam Nawaz appeared before the JIT, which, by the looks of things, might well be the last summon of substance from the the Sharif family, before the report is submitted to the Supreme Court by the JIT.

This is what she had to say before her summon..

Pakistan reacted to the summon is very mixed ways. Some called her ‘Qoum Ki Beti’, while other thought ‘Chor Ki Beti’ was more appropriate..
