The tradition of giving ‘zehar’ to politicians in the jail is not something new for Pakistan. The foreign correspondent for the USA magazine, The Newyorker Mary Anne Weaver wrote in one of her essays that the former first female Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto was given ‘zehar’ in jail. Recalling her bitter memories, Benazir said in an interview to Mary that,
“The day that a jail official told me that I was to be tried inside the jail, by a special military tribunal, and will be executed. I was stunned—I couldn’t believe that they’d do it, though one side of me said that they would. A few hours later, someone left a bottle of poison inside my cell.”
And now people are showing their concern for Nawaz Sharif as allegedly he was given food with ‘zehar’ in it!
Yesterday, a news channel reported that Punjab Institute Of Cardiology conducted the Thallium Scan Test of ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif due to security concerns and pressure from certain quarters. According to the hospital administration, one of the arteries of premier has been narrowed down which is affecting the blood supply negatively. But for further tests, they were not allowed to do that. After that, Maryam Nawaz shared her concern for her father on Twitter.
Maryam Nawaz Said in Her Tweet That The Reports Of Her Father’s Cardiac Arrest Is ‘Not Entirely Untrue’
The reports leaked to media show his disease has progressed & is life-threatening. Official reports from PIC still awaited. Have been running pillar to post but to no avail. pic.twitter.com/fONwwVXFdM
