  • Khan called for September 24 as Raiwind March where people from across the country will march to Raiwind to protest against corruption.

Karachi: Sept 08, 2016: Pakistan Zindabad Rally fires an ammunition against rampant corruption prevalent in Pakistan on Tuesday, Sept 06, this year. The rally was organized in Nishtar Park opposite Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi and was supported by the major participation of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and was headed by the chairman of the Party, Imran Khan.

According to channel24.pk reports, the entire motive behind it was to strengthen the fight and support of Pakistanis against all the corruption in the areas of politics, industries, and various other sectors. The twist in the entire story is that the rally primarily aims at raging against the lately defamed Sharif family. Earlier in July , a report of Panama Papers shook the entire nation when the leaks involved the name of their Prime Minister, Mr. Nawaaz Sharif, his brother and other family members. From that time, the Sharif family is facing lots of troubles and outrage from the people of Pakistan.

Two months back, in July, a report of Panama Papers shook the entire nation when the leaks involved the name of their Prime Minister, Mr. Nawaaz Sharif, his brother and other family members. Since that time, the Sharif family is facing lots of troubles and outrage from the people of Pakistan.

The fight since concerns all the people of the nation and has become quite rampant, all the political parties in this country have joined hands together against it. Along with PTI, PML-Q, PAT, and PPP will also be seen taking a sword of the anti-corruption movement in Pakistan. Only adding a question of concern, how large is the selfish interest of these parties in extending their support to each other and publicly further tampering the reputation of Nawaz Sharif?

It will now be an interesting and simultaneously analytical exercise for all to await a swift investigation against all the accused and also the reaction of the controversial and not so celebrated Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Bangladesh Nationalist Party Chairperson Khaleda Zia, convicted in a corruption case, was granted bail on Monday.

BNP leader Zia secured a four-month bail in the Zia Orphanage Trust corruption case in which she was handed five years of imprisonment by a Bangladesh court.

“Now, there is no legal bar to let Khaleda walk out of prison on bail,” Bangladesh Daily Star quoted BNP Advocate Sagir Hossain Leon as saying.

Earlier today, a bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Shahidul Karim passed the bail order in response to a petition moved by Khaleda before a high court back in February.

Her bail was considered on four grounds, including her health condition.

Further, the high court directed the concerned authority to prepare the paper book of the case within the next four months for hearing the appeal she filed against her conviction in the case.

The high court sentenced Zia’s eldest son and Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s (BNP) Vice-Chairman Tarique Rahman and four others for at least 10 years with a fine of 2.10 crore Bangladeshi takas (Tk).

The Anti-Corruption Commission had earlier filed a case in 2008 with Ramna Police Station, accusing six persons including Khaleda and her son Tarique.

Khaleda is a two-time Bangladesh Prime Minister, having ruled from 1991-96 and again from 2001-06.

In a political career spanning almost four decades, Khaleda went to the jail several times but was never convicted. She was detained several times during the anti-Ershad movement between the 1980s and 1990s.

In March 1983, she was made vice-chairperson of BNP after her husband and former Bangladesh President Ziaur was assassinated.

She went on to become the party’s chairperson in 1984, a position which she holds today. May 10, 1984.

Since the last three decades, Bangladeshi politics have been dominated by Zia and current Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
