Who thought Nawaz Sharif would turn out to be a bigger liberal than Imran Khan?


When hours later, in response to the anger, the Pakistani prime minister clarified his statement, it seemed like Nawaz was caving in.
But, no.
Over the course of his leadership, it has become clear that rather than deep frying, Nawaz Sharif believes in slow roasting a chicken. In this hyperventilating country, perhaps this is what Pakistan needs.
Case in point: When Imran Khan ran a circus after being controlled like a pawn that was convinced it was on a path to become the queen, Nawaz did not respond in kind. The reasons could have been many, but it was Sharif who came out on top, while the rest of the country was left questioning Khan’s competence, intelligence, sanity, wisdom, and more.
Yes, the PML-N simply held their collective breaths, while PTI self-destructed like a boy trying to get inside a candy shop by running headfirst into the wall.
It is hard to believe that under Nawaz, a man previously attached to the religious right like a conjoined twin, Pakistan has moved against child marriages, unblocked YouTube, put forth a historic bill to protect women, finally melted a snowball that, as evident from its funeral, had rolled into a snow hill, and brought the threat of terrorism to its knees.
But wait, Nawaz isn’t done yet.
In context of this country’s extremist history, remarkably, the Pakistani government has agreed to adopt Holi, Diwali, and Easter, as holidays.
No, some don’t believe it is really Nawaz.
