Dear Mian Nawaz Sharif,

I just watched your arrival back to the country only because the channel stopped Edhi’s transmission and decided to give coverage to the specially modified aircraft you came on, helicopters, your house being decked up, how you will meet your family first then you’ll go to your drawing room where all of the guests are going to eat diff dishes, etc. I also saw 1800 policemen were appointed at the airport; the normal functions of other passengers were disturbed and so on. All this hype was being given to you because you had a normal four hours surgery, spent a relaxing month and a half in London and finally decided to honor Pakistan with your presence. How impressive!

But then it just hit me; you are no royalty or the ruler of any super power. In fact, you are just a prime minister of an underdeveloped, third world country right? Which is suffering in so many ways? We take funds from the world because we are “poor” and need money for basic sectors like education and health! There are people who die because of hunger here. Your delusional behaviors had me confused but having to realize you’re NOTHING more than just a “publicly elected servant” or “prime minister” of PAKISTAN (you must Google “Pakistan” the things they’ll show you, would be the pictures of hungry poor people or terrorist attacks). And realizing all this just made me so so sad for you and my self-proclaimed king!

I feel how about we send you for a psychological treatment next time with our “tax money”? So they can give you therapy and bring you back to reality from Lala-land? You need it! Don’t get me wrong; I have nothing against you on a personal level but Mr. Prime Minister you want to live like a king? Please feel free to do that, just not from my country’s money! STOP treating Pakistan as your personal inheritance! My people are naive, they trusted you and brought you to a position where they let you make decisions for us and play with this country’s assets. But it’s about time you STOP doing that! Please go out on the road and ask anyone normal what does this country need? Metro bus or trains would be the last thing you’ll hear. These people need safety; they need employment, and they need food, health and education.

Not going to go into any further details now, because I’m sad over losing someone who actually cared for this country. Who was more approachable to anyone dying of hunger or in need of help than you! Because even if someone will die in front of your house Mr. Prime Minister, your security checks won’t let it get to you or rather kill him in the name of “security threat”. Wow so much for being a Prime Minster and taking the oath to take care of this country and its people!

So Mr. Nawaz I really hope you stay healthy because I don’t want you to waste this country’s money anymore. I’ll seriously pray for your recovery! And do consider my suggestions, people around you aren’t telling you the truth, but trust me the prime minister of a poor country shouldn’t be putting up such shows! This is not just opening everyone’s eyes here and making them hate you, they can also be a hurdle from you getting all the funds from the foreign world, they might start misunderstanding us being a wealthy nation and that would be tragic for you!

Your actual well-wisher,

  1. A country where tax-to-GDP ratio is abysmally low, where government has to depend on IMF to meet its budgetary needs because revenue generated through direct and indirect taxes is insufficient, where tax evasion is a culture, where every Tom, Dick and Harry wants to cut corners, you cannot expect a David Cameron or Barrack Obama to lead it. Nawaz Sharif is the name of our collective face which is blackened by our own misdeeds.
