In a landmark decision on Wednesday, Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar has declared the disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is not worthy of heading his own party, Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz).
Ex-PM (and now ex-chief of the PML-N) Nawaz Sharif has been in hot waters ever since the Panama scandal surfaced onto the scene, causing havoc for the Sharif family, who were accused of trying to hide the sources of income that were used to purchase the Mayfair flats in UK.
After his disqualification as the Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif launched a campaign ‘Mujhay Kiyun Nikala’, alleging discrimination by certain quarters that led to his ouster.
Yesterday, another historic decision was announced by a three-judge bench, stating that a person disqualified under Article 62, 63 cannot lead a political party. The judgement also said that all the decisions taken by NS after his disqualification as PM have been declared null and void.
Is it lights out for Nawaz Sharif? Or will he be able to play the victim card and revive his political fortunes? But no matter what happens, yesterday Pakistani social media users had a field day regarding the judgement to disqualify the ex-PM… twice.
Here are some of the most hilarious reactions following the judgement:
Well someone had to make the most obvious point:

All this is fine and good, but lets focus on the more important things in life now:
Now that both Imran Khan & Nawaz Sharif are done with their favourite hobby, shadi & disqualification respectively, let’s move on to awaams favourite hobby, PSL!
