Dpp not to blame for haneef treatment’

Fareed Zakaria has dismissed calls for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down over the treatment of Haneef Zahoor, claiming Nawaz is a “patriot” and not affected by “haneef treatment” of the Pakistani journalist.

In an interview with IANS on Monday, Zakaria said the treatment of Fahad was not a personal matter, it was a legal matter.

“Fareed’s wife has asked him to resign. In the last several months, Haneef Zahoor’s condition has been deteriorating due to a litany of medical problems and it was his doctors who came in to check on him,” Zakaria said.

The comments come in a day of turmoil in Pakistan over the treatment of the Haneef journalist.

At the end of June, Nawaz Sharif had called for the government to investigate whether Fahad and his wife had been malnourished when they went on their honeymoon in the United Arab Emirates. At the time, he said it would be a question of the justice system whether Fahad should be prosecuted or not, despite his legal case being suspended last month.

On Friday, his office issued a statement denying that a criminal case was still pending.
