Immense courage needed now for #NawazSharif and #MaryamNawaz to return to Pakistan. An arrest will serve PMLN politically. This is the closest the Sharifs will ever come to the Bhutto clan in terms of sacrifice & bravery.

All the criticism on Imran Khan aside, I don’t fucking care. He promised us that he’ll make Nawaz and family pay for their crimes and he bloody well delivered it!
