Former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has returned to Saudi Arabia, accused and expelled from Pakistan as if he’s paying a tax for failing to fulfill his previous pledges to the kingdom.
This comes years after Saudi Arabia warned the former Pakistani prime minister to return to the political arena in Pakistan.
The head of Saudi intelligence, Prince Muqrin bin Aziz warned during his visit to Islamabad in 2007, Sharif not to return to Pakistan and the political arena, stressing that the former Pakistani Prime Minister to abide by his pledges that he will not practice politics from his exile, and to stay away from Pakistan to hold Of time.
"In the name of national interest, we hope that Sharif will abide by the terms of his promise," Prince Muqrin said, adding that the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, had helped the Sharif family avoid prison.
But Sharif's lack of listening to Saudi warnings and his reluctance to return to Pakistan's political arena have apparently burned his boat till he is gone with the wind. The former Pakistani prime minister faces accusations of corruption and financial scandals that have extended to include his family and children.
The visit of Nawaz Sharif to Saudi Arabia coincided with the visit of his brother Shahbaz Sharif, Prime Minister of Pakistan's Punjab province of the Kingdom, where informed sources say that Sharif regretting not listening to the warnings of Saudi Arabia is the reason for his visit to the Kingdom in order to find new Saudi support to save him from the consequences of his stubbornness.
