The Supreme Court’s verdict on Asghar Khan/ISI political funding case has been announced exposing many a politician. This case has highlighted the ongoing, unstoppable fire of corruption that has spread rampantly all over the country and has engulfed everyone. But this sorry state of affairs is very shameful.

In other civilized countries if any politician is involved or is even alleged to be involved in any crime, (bribery) the first thing they do is they resign from their post, which is a sacred trust that the people put in them, but we have not seen even one honourable person do so in Pakistan. We have a constitution, a free judiciary, but we need honest politicians.
