LONDON: Former Finance Minister Ishaq Dar has issued a significant policy statement in relation to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) narrative, emphasising that Nawaz Sharif has chosen a path of nation-building and reconciliation rather than personal vendettas.
Dar made these remarks during an interaction with journalists outside the PML-N headquarters in London. He highlighted Nawaz Sharif’s commitment to letting divine justice prevail in dealing with those he perceives as his tormentors. He stated, “Nawaz Sharif has entrusted matters related to his detractors to Allah, leaving it to divine justice to address those who unseated him from power through illicit, vengeful, and unethical means”.
He added, “Nawaz Sharif had publicly conveyed this stance in 2017 when he faced disqualification over the Iqama issue, and since then, we have witnessed how Allah has been kind to him, and individuals have confessed their wrongdoing against him.”

The former finance minister referenced significant events such as Judge Arshed Malik’s video confession regarding the unfair conviction of Nawaz Sharif and Justice Shaukat Siddiqui’s revelations concerning injustice against him. Dar asserted that these developments unfolded swiftly because Nawaz Sharif had placed his faith in divine justice.
Dar also claimed that Nawaz Sharif will not have to go to jail upon his return to Pakistan, as the cases against him were fake. He said that a legal strategy had been prepared to deal with the cases against Nawaz, who will be the PMLN’s candidate for the prime minister’s slot for the fourth time.
Dar emphasised that Nawaz Sharif’s approach is not rooted in seeking revenge but rather in the belief that Pakistan must forge ahead, focusing on economic development and growth.
Dar revealed that upon his return to Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif’s primary focus will be on nation-building, aiming to steer the nation out of crises, stimulate economic progress, implement reforms, promote national prosperity, and alleviate the hardships faced by the masses. The ultimate goal is to set Pakistan on a trajectory of advancement.
Ishaq Dar is scheduled to return to Pakistan on Saturday and has affirmed his willingness to cooperate with the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the reopened assets beyond means case.
