PM Shehbaz Sharif offers message after Daily Mail apology

ISLAMABAD: After Daily Mail’s apology over baseless allegations, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has stated that he bowed his head in humility earlier than Allah (SWT) for his vindication, ARY News reported on Thursday.

PM Shehbaz Sharif stated on Twitter, “I bow my head in humility before Allah (SWT) for my vindication. For 3 long years, Imran & his minions went to any limit to assassinate my character.”

“In their smear campaign, they didn’t bother if their actions brought a bad name to Pakistan and damaged its relations with friendly country,” he added.

In one other tweet, PM Sharif wrote, “They mocked & ridiculed me & my family through their baseless allegations but I had my unwavering faith in Allah, for only He could expose their brazen lies. Disinformation & fake news have limited shelf life & truth is ultimate victor. After NCA, Daily Mail story has proven it.”

Earlier, British publication Daily Mail apologised to Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif for publishing an article that accused him of embezzling British overseas help cash meant for earthquake victims, ARY News reported on Thursday.


According to particulars, the stated article, written by investigative journalist David Rose, has now been faraway from all platforms of Mail publishers.

However, it’s pertinent to say right here that Daily Mail didn’t apologize for the allegations of cash laundering and TT scandal towards PM Shehbaz Sharif.

In a clarification posted on its web site, the Daily Mail talked about that their article regarding PM Shehbaz titled “Did the family of Pakistani politician who has become the poster boy for British overseas aid STEAL funds meant for earthquake victims” was revealed on July 14, 2019.

The report was primarily based on an investigation by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) into PM Shehbaz and instructed that the cash below “investigation included a not insubstantial sum of British public money that had been paid to the Punjab province in DFID grant aid”, the assertion stated.
