#YouCanNeverMinusNawaz trends on Twitter as former PM gets disqualified for life


ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC), in a historical verdict, on Friday disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif for life, under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, who was heading the five-member bench, remarked before the verdict was announced that the public deserves “leaders of good character”.

Article 62(1)(f) reads: “A person shall not be qualified to be elected or chosen as a member of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) unless-…he is sagacious, righteous and non-profligate, Sadiq and Ameen, there being no declaration to the contrary by a court of law.”

The historic judgement which has sealed the politic fate of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has sparked an intense debate on Twitter and supporters of PML-N and Nawaz have taken to the social media site to express their support and love for “their leader.” However, some have also decided to use this hashtag as a joke.

Twitter user Raja Iftikhar Ahmed tweeted, “Who cares either he is disqualified or not? You can’t minus the fact that Pakistani politics revolves around Nawaz Sharif. He doesn’t require any Certificate of Qualification from anyone. He was, is and always will be a NATIONAL LEADER.”

Another Twitter user, Qaiser Jalal said, “You can Minus Nawaz via SC, but, you can never minus him from our hearts.”

Twitter user Amel Asbat Bhatti said,” You can never minus Nawaz because Supreme Court is dividing Nawaz Sharif into pieces.”

Syeda Anum Shah tweeted, “This verdict is not declared by SC it’s basically declared by bhoots #YouCanNeverMinusNawaz

Some Twitter users got really emotional. User Imran Shaheen said, “Nawaz sharif is in our Heartd, in our blood and in our souls, you can’t minus him. #YouCanNeverMinusNawaz

Zeeshan Malik said, “You will never remain judges forever but Nawaz Shareef will remain Ruler of Heart.”

Maimoona said, “My vote my power?
I support Democratic system
I support Nawaz Sharif.”


Waqar Ahmed tweeted, “If you were expecting anything more than this from him, you were mistaken.”


Aniha Anam Chaudhary tweeted, “Those who talked about minus Nawaz Sharif did not know, “Nawaz is the name of an ideology. The more they try to minus Nawaz Sharif, the more people multiplying their votes in support of him.”


Taimur Malik tweeted, “Let the real game begin!”


The hashtag has almost 8545 tweets and is continuing to grow.
