Was PML-N secretly supporting TLP?

 

Shahbaz Sharif, president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and leader of opposition in the National Assembly, said in a hard tone that the opposition was in a position to take advantage of the situation during recent protests but they decided to rather act with dignity.

Mr. Shahbaz who is in the custody of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) was presiding a meeting of the PML-N parliamentary committee at the parliament house. The PML-N president was also quoted as saying that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had gained nothing from Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to China this week.

Even during the recent protests, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, daughter of the ousted PMLN PM Nawaz Sharif, was seen liking Khadim Rizvi’s social media post; on being criticized, she however undid that.

Mr. Shahbaz was alluding to the recent wave of protests in the urban centers of Pakistan after the acquittal of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman accused of blasphemy, by the Supreme Court of Pakistan… According to the details, on 31st October the SC reversed the orders of the lower courts and acquitted her.

After the Supreme Court of Pakistan announced its decision, supporters of the TLP took to the street in Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi and sealed off the cities. The leaders of the TLP and other religious parties reportedly demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister, Judges who were part of a three-member bench, and suspension of the verdict of the top court.

 

Opposition parties apparently supported the PTI government and off and on assured it of their full cooperation. But analysts in Pakistan viewed the narratives of opposition with skepticism. Dr. Mooed Pirzada, a prominent TV anchor, said that “Opposition (PPP/PMLN) appears to be thinking how to benefit from the situation created by clerics on streets after Supreme Court Acquittal of Asia Bibi, but is unable to openly support the clerics, hence the double talk. Watch their words, statements & actions carefully.”

PMLN, a center right party, has always backed religious fanatic segments as major vote bank of PMLN is Punjab and majority of rural Punjab is conservative. So the idea that the opposition was secretly behind the recent protests holds some interesting grounds and is not completely a fallacy.
