Nawaz Sharif Family Mafia – CJ, Nawaz, & NAB Stone-Walling: What is the Status of Hudaibiya Paper Mills Case?

 Will there be justice?


 “In August 2008 the reopening by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) of the corruption cases about Hudaibiya Paper Mills, Ittefaq Foundry and Raiwind assets meant that the entire Sharif family was in the dock. There are three cases against the Sharif brothers and their families, which do not fall under the ambit of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), as all these were established after 1999. The cases were registered in 2000. Nine persons were nominated in the Hudaibiya paper mills case. They are late Mian Muhammad Sharif, Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, widow of Mian Muhammad Sharif, Mian Abbas Sharif, Hussain Nawaz, Hamza Shahbaz, Shamim Akhtar, Sabiha Abbas wife of Mian Abbas Sharif and Mariam Safdar. In the case of Hudabiya Sugar Mills, the charge is of money laundering to the tune of over Rs600 million whereas in the case against Ittefaq Foundry, the directors are accused of bank loans default involving a total sum of Rs1.6 billion.”

Pakistan’s political system is broken: its political parties are ineffective, functioning for decades as instruments of two families, the Bhuttos and the Sharifs, two clans, both corrupt. The Bhutto-Zardari axis may be considered “left leaning,” while the Sharif brothers may be considered “right leaning.” The Sharifs are much closer to Pakistan’s military, and to Pakistan’s Muslim fundamentalists. Punjabi, the Sharifs represent Pakistan’s major ethnic bloc, and the devout Sunni Sharif has an advantage over the Bhuttos, who have Shiite ties.
In 1968, Dr Mahbubul Haq spoke of 22 families that controlled 68 percent of Pakistan’s industrial assets, 86 percent of banking assets and many other sources of income generation. Almost all the big business groups of the 1970s had started in 1947 as family joint ventures.
Mian Sharif and his six brothers set up an iron-melting furnace in Landa Bazaar and in 1967-68 expanded the business with his brothers. Later, he set up the Ittefaq Mills in the Shahara area. He went on to set up the Ittefaq Group of Companies and more than half a dozen factories and sugar mills across the Punjab, rising to fame in Pakistan’s business circles.
Mian Sharif’s business faced a serious setback during the Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s regime, as the government nationalised his industrial units and took over the Ittefaq Foundry. In 1972, when Zulfikar Ali Bhutto nationalized the Ittefaq Foundry, the heart of the Sharif family’s industrial empire, this set the Sharif family back considerably. The Sharifs disappeared from public eye and tried doing business in the West Asia. Mian Sharif founded the Sharif Group of Industries in 1974 after the nationalisation of the Ittefaq Foundry on the orders of prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.
In 1981, the family returned with a bang, and shot up to power. When Gen Ziaul Haq deposed Zulfikar Bhutto and took over as the chief martial law administrator, Mian Sharif and his three sons returned to Pakistan and managed to get the Ittefaq Foundry back from the government. In 1978, General Ziaul Haq handed over Ittefaq Foundry to the Sharifs of Lahore without inviting any bids. In fact, two other nationalised units, Nowshera Engineering in the NWFP and Hilal Ghee in Multan, were handed over to their original owners. Mian Sharif also developed friendly relations with Gen Zia and became one of the general’s most trusted men. In 1983, General Ziaul Haq inducted Nawaz Sharif into the Punjab provincial cabinet as finance minister. 
During the rule of Nawaz Sharif, the Gidani beach was the largest ship breaking industry in the world, providing more than $1 Billion in earnings to the people of the Mekran coast. To help the Ittefaq foundry keep its monopoly on steel, Nawaz Sharif imposed strict tariffs on the ship breaking industry, while expropriating the Pakistan Railway for free transportation of imported steel to Ittefaq Foundry. These acts of Nawaz Sharif destroyed the largest ship breaking industry in the world. The ships were sold at scrap value and provided valuable engines and repair material to an entire industry in Pakistan. The Gidani beach provided steel to the Pakistan Steel Mills as very low cost.
The House of Ittefaq, the industrial conglomerate of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family, is not unity anymore and 119 offspring’s siblings and spouses of the seven founding brothers are currently battling in courts for the division of the assets of the Ittefaq group. As soon as Nawaz Sharif became Prime Minister in 1990, Mian Mohammad Sharif switched over to setting up projects independent of the other partners, thus laying the grounds for split. According to agreement reached in Lahore High Court by members of the family sometime in 1996, the House of Ittefaq split in two groups. The first comprised the families of Mian Mohammad Sharif, Mohammad Shafi, Barkat Ali, Yousaf Aziz and Idrees Bashir while the second group comprised the families of Meraj Din and Siraj Din. Members of the Ittefaq group are currently operating in three groups namely Sharif Group, Ittefaq Group and Haseeb Waqas Group. The three groups have only four companies listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange (KSE).
Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif left the country along with 18 other family members in December, 2000, after striking a deal with the military government. Mian Muhammad Sharif, father of Pakistan’s ex-Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif, died in October 2000. Mian Sharif, a respected politician and noted industrialist of Pakistan, was in exile in Saudi Arabia along with his family after an agreement in 2000 with the Pakistan government.
The Sharif family is the most influential family in the Punjab province, especially in the urban areas. The Sharif family is moving into third-generation politics. By grooming their sons, the Sharifs are perpetuating a political tradition that allows a few families to maintain a hold over national politics. The PML (N) continued to be led by the Sharif family, despite their exile in Saudi Arabia and the Saudis’ restrictions on their political activities, that effectively cut them out of the 2002 elections.
In August 2008 the reopening by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) of the corruption cases about Hudaibiya Paper Mills, Ittefaq Foundry and Raiwind assets meant that the entire Sharif family was in the dock. There are three cases against the Sharif brothers and their families, which do not fall under the ambit of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO), as all these were established after 1999. The cases were registered in 2000. Nine persons were nominated in the Hudaibia paper mills case. They are late Mian Muhammad Sharif, Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, widow of Mian Muhammad Sharif, Mian Abbas Sharif, Hussain Nawaz, Hamza Shahbaz, Shamim Akhtar, Sabiha Abbas wife of Mian Abbas Sharif and Mariam Safdar. In the case of Hudabiya Sugar Mills, the charge is of money laundering to the tune of over Rs600 million whereas in the case against Ittefaq Foundry, the directors are accused of bank loans default involving a total sum of Rs1.6 billion.

نواز شریف اور ایل این جی اسکینڈل















نواز شریف اور ایل این جی اسکینڈل

by Masood Anwar

مسعود انور

نواز شریف حکومت کو ابھی برسراقتدار آئے پورے سو دن بھی نہیں ہوئے ہیں کہ ان کی حکومت کے مالی اسکینڈل آنے شروع ہوگئے ہیں ۔ اس میں سب سے اوپر قطر سے ایل این جی کی درامد ہے۔ اب تک ایل این جی کی ڈیل کے جتنے بھی پہلو بھی سامنے آئے ہیں وہ اتنے خوفناک ہیں کہ اس کے آگے اب تک پاکستان میں ہونے والے سارے اسکینڈل ہیچ نظر آتے ہیں۔ بلکہ یہ کہا جائے تو بے جا نہ ہوگا کہ بقیہ تمام اسکینڈل کے بھی وہ مجموعی اثرات ملک پر مرتب نہیں ہوں گے جو ایک اکیلا ایل این جی اسکینڈل اس ملک کے ساتھ کرے گا۔

کہا گیا کہ پاکستان میں گیس کے ذخائربس اب تب میں ختم ہوئے چاہتے ہیں اور ملک کی ضروریات کو پورا کرنے کے لئے فوری طور پر اس کی درامد کرنا پڑے گی۔(یہ سب حکومت کے کارپردازوں کا کہنا ہے اور ہمارے پاس ایک بھی آزاد ذریعہ نہیں ہے جس سے اس کی تصدیق کی جاسکے)۔ پھر کہا گیا کہ ہمارے پاس بہترین آپشن صرف اور صرف قطر ہے کیوں کہ وہاں سے شپمنٹ محض ایک دن میں کراچی پہنچ سکتی ہے اس لئے قطر سے گیس کی درامد کی جائے گی۔ دیکھنے میں سب کچھ بالکل صاف شفاف نظر آرہا ہے مگر ایسا بالکل نہیں ہے۔ ایک نیوز ویب سائیٹ مڈوے ٹائمز ڈاٹ کام کی ایک تحقیقاتی رپورٹ میں پیش کئے گئے حقائق کو دیکھیں تو اندازہ ہوتا ہے کہ ملک کو مستقل طور پر گروی رکھنے کا سامان کرلیا گیا ہے۔ سب سے پہلی حقیقت تو یہی ہے کہ یہ ڈیل قطر کی حکومت کے ساتھ نہیں کی جارہی بلکہ ایک ملٹی نیشنل کمپنی کونوکو فلپس کے ساتھ طے کی جارہی ہے۔ دوسری بڑی بات یہ کہ پاکستان میں بھی اس کو ایک اور ملٹی نیشنل کمپنی اینگروہینڈل کرے گی۔ اس طرح یہ دو ملٹی نیشنل کمپنیاں کاروبار کریں گی جس کی قیمت پاکستانی عوام ادا کرے گی۔ مڈوے ٹائمز ڈاٹ کام کی رپورٹ کے مطابق حکومت پاکستان نے یومیہ پانچ سو ملین کیوبک فیٹ گیس خریدنے کا بیس برس تک کا معاہدہ کیا ہے۔ اب پاکستانی حکومت یہ گیس لے یا نہ لے ، اس کو اس کی ادائیگی جو تقریبا پچاس لاکھ ڈالر روزانہ ہے وہ کرنی پڑے گی۔ اس معاہدہ کی رو سے حکومت پاکستان یہ گیس کسی دوسرے ملک کو فروخت نہیں کرسکے گی اور اس کی قیمت پندرہ ڈالر فی ملین بی ٹی یو بتائی جارہی ہے جو پاکستان میں سوئی سدرن گیس کے نظام میں داخل ہونے کے بعد چوبیس ڈالر فی ملین بی ٹی یو تک پڑے گی۔

اگر پاکستان قطر سے یہ گیس ان ہی شرائط پر درامد کرنا شروع کردیتا ہے تو پاکستان میں گیس کے نرخ سہ گنا تک بڑھ جائیں گے۔ اب آپ اندازہ لگا سکتے ہیں کہ بجلی کہاں پہنچے گی اور دیگر اشیاء کی پیداواری لاگت کہاں پر ۔ اس کے بعد پاکستان کی برامدی صنعت میں برامدات کے لئے کتنا دم خم باقی رہ جائے گا۔ یہاں تک تو پھر بھی اس مسئلے کی ہولناکی سامنے نہیں آتی۔ بات سیدھی سی لگتی ہے کہ گیس ختم ہوگئی تو اب کیا کیا جاسکتا ہے۔

اس میگا اسکینڈل کی ہولناکی یہاں سے شروع ہوتی ہے کہ رپورٹ میں بتایا گیا ہے کہ اس قیمت میں بیس سال تک کوئی ردوبدل نہیں کیا جاسکے گا۔ اندازہ لگایا جارہا ہے کہ اس پورے کھیل میں پاکستانی سیاستدانوں اور دیگر کھلاڑیوں کو تقریبا چار سو ارب روپے کا کمیشن ملے گا۔

اس سے بھی بڑھ کر ایک اور انکشاف کیا گیا ہے اور وہ یہ ہے کہ ابھی حال میں ہی سندھ میں سانگھڑ کے مقام پر قدرتی گیس کے وافر ذخائر دریافت ہوئے ہیں۔ اس سے بھی بڑھ کر پاکستان میں سندھ میں کھیر تھر کے پہاڑی سلسلے میں شیلے یا ٹائٹ گیس کے ذخائر وافر مقدار میں پائے جاتے ہیں۔ شیلے یا ٹائٹ گیس کا کیمیائی فارمولا قدرتی گیس سے ذرا ہی مختلف ہوتا ہے مگر اس کا کام اور استعمال قدرتی گیس جیسا ہی ہوتا ہے۔ امریکا ، کینیڈا ور چین یہ ذخائر نہ صرف نکال رہے ہیں بلکہ ملکی ترقی کے لئے بھرپور استعمال بھی کررہے ہیں۔ مڈوے ٹائمز کی رپورٹ میں ایک امریکی رپورٹ کا حوالہ دیا گیا ہے جس کے مطابق یہ ذخائر پاکستان میں کینیڈا سے بھی زیادہ ہیں۔

رپورٹ میں کہا گیا ہے کہ اگر پاکستان میں گیس کی موجودہ کھپت کو آئندہ بیس سال میں تین گنا بھی بڑھا لیا جائے تو بھی یہ ذخائر آئندہ بیس برس تک ملک کی ضروریات کو پورا کرنے کے لئے کافی ہیں۔ اس عرصہ میں ٹیکنالوجی میں بہت ترقی ہوچکی ہوگی اور ان ہی کنووٴں سے مزید گیس بھی نکالنا ممکن ہوگی۔اس وقت سجاول میں ایسے ہی ایک کنوئیں سے سوئی سدرن گیس یہی ٹائٹ یا شیلے گیس حاصل کررہی ہے اور چھ ڈالر فی ملین ایم بی ٹی یو کی ادائیگی کررہی ہے۔ ذرا تقابل تو کیجئے، کہاں چھ ڈالر اور کہاں چوبیس ڈالر۔

اب پوری صورتحال کو ایک مرتبہ پھر دیکھئے ۔ پاکستان ایک ایسا معاہدہ کرنے کے قریب ہے جس میں پاکستانی عوام بیس سال تک ایک ملٹی نیشنل کمپنی کو پچاس لاکھ یومیہ ادا کریں گے۔ جی ہاں آپ گیس خریدیں یا نہ خریدیں ، پچاس لاکھ ڈالر یومیہ ادا کرنے کے پابند ہیں۔ اس ڈیل کے نتیجے میں پاکستانی برامدی صنعت مکمل طور پر ختم ہوجائے گی اور ہم صرف پھل اور چاول بیچ کر ہی ملک میں زرمبادلہ لاسکیں گے۔ بجلی و گیس تین گنا مہنگی ہوجائے گی، اس کا مطلب یہ ہوا کہ ملک میں مہنگائی کا سونامی، پورے ملک کو اپنے لپیٹ میں لے کر وہ تباہی مچائے گا کہ سب کچھ ختم ہوجائے گا۔

اس پورے کھیل کے روح و رواں ہیں ہیں فنانس منسٹر اسحق ڈار اور پٹرولیم منسٹر شاہد خاقان عباسی۔ ان دونوں وزراء کی اپنی ایک تاریخ ہے ۔ شاہد خاقان عباسی پی آئی اے کے سربراہ بھی رہے ہیں اور آج پی آئی اے جس حال میں ہے ، یہ ان ہی کا کمال ہے۔ اسی طرح اسحٰق ڈار کا اپنا ایک ماضی ہے۔ اس پر گفتگو آئندہ کالم میں انشاء اللہ تعالیٰ۔اس ڈیل پر نہ تو کوئی سیاسی پارٹی شور مچارہی ہے اور نہ ہی کوئی سول سوسائٹی۔ اتنے اہم ایشو پر نہ تو سپریم کورٹ نے کوئی سوموٹو لیا ہے اور نہ ہی کسی نے عدالت سے رجوع کیا ہے۔ نہ کوئی دھرنا دے رہا ہے اور نہ ہی حکومت کے خلاف مہم چلانے کا ارادہ ہے۔ اس کا مطلب یہ ہوا کہ کچھ تو معاملات ایسے ہیں جہاں پر سب کے پر جلتے ہیں۔ جان لیجئے کہ ان تیل کمپنیوں کے مالکان، بینکار، اسٹیل ملز کے مالکان، دواوٴں کی کمپنیوں کے مالکان کون ہیں ۔ یہی تو بین الاقوامی سازش کار ہیں جو پوری دنیا میں جنگوں کا بازار گرم رکھتے ہیں اور ایک عالمگیر شیطانی حکومت کے قیام کی سازشوں میں مصروف ہیں۔اور پاکستان میں ان کے ایجنٹوں کا کمال تو دیکھئے ، نہ کوئی شور نہ غوغا۔ نہ کوئی مخالفت اور نہ ہی کوئی احتجاج۔

اس دنیا پر ایک عالمگیر شیطانی حکومت کے قیام کی سازشوں سے خود بھی ہشیار رہئے اور اپنے آس پاس والوں کو بھی خبردار رکھئے۔ ہشیار باش۔

REHMAN MALIK’S GHADARI & NAWAZ SHARIF’S MEMORY LOSS: Pakistan never responded to US efforts for repatriation of Dr Aafia to Pakistan: Diplomatic Sources

American diplomatic sources informed that in the past US had contacted number of times with the government of Pakistan for repatriation of Dr Afia Siddiqui to Pakistan but never receive any response adding that Dr Aafia could be returned to Pakistan if Pakistan signs Int’l prisoners’ agreement for exchange of Dr Aafia. According to a private TV channel report, US Diplomatic sources had informed government of Pakistan after court’s verdict in February 2010 that repatriation of Dr Aafia to Pakistan was possible and for the first time Interior Minister Rehman Malik was contacted that if Pakistan signed world agreement for prisoners exchange then it could be decided, how Dr Afia could be repatriated to Pakistan, however, government of Pakistan didn’t respond from April 2010 to July 2010 to solve the issue. It is also worth mentioning that a visiting American delegate that had arrived for strategic dialogues in month of July had also indicated that Dr Aafia could be repatriated to Pakistan. American Diplomatic sources clarified that if till now Dr Afia had not been handed over to Pakistan and even in future it didn’t happen-government of Pakistan would be responsible for it. When Interior Minister Rehman Malik was contacted he stated that the government had done its best to get Dr Aafia back from American detention, however foreign office has been responsible to sign world prisoners exchange agreement.

Federal Investigative Agency

Before independence, the security forces of British India were primarily concerned with the maintenance of law and order but were also called on to perform duties in support of the political interests of the government. The duties of the police officer in a formal sense were those of police the world over: executing orders and warrants; collecting and communicating upward intelligence concerning public order; preventing crime; and detecting, apprehending, and arresting criminals. These duties were specified in Article 23 of the Indian Police Act of 1861, which (together with revisions dating from 1888 and the Police Rules of 1934), is still the basic document for police activity in Pakistan.


The overall organization of the police forces remained much the same after partition. Except for centrally administered territories and tribal territories in the north and northwest, basic law and order responsibilities have been carried out by the four provincial governments. The central government has controlled a series of specialized police agencies, including the Federal Investigative Agency, railroad and airport police forces, an anticorruption task force, and various paramilitary organizations such as the Rangers, constabulary forces, and the Frontier Corps.

Benazir Bhutto appointed Rehman Malik as chief of the Federal Investigation Agency which then launched a secret war against the Islamists, which amounted to a direct attack on the ISI. The Pakistani military was equally dismayed by reports of FIA contacts with the Israeli secret service, the MOSSAD, to investigate Islamist terrorists. The FIA leadership under Bhutto also angered Islamist elements because they allowed the extradited Ramzi Yousaf to the US for trial on the New York Trade Centre Bombing. One of the first acts of President Leghari after dismissing Benazir Bhutto on 05 November 1996 was to imprison the Ghulam Asghar, head of FIA, suspended on non specified corruption charges, and Rehman Malik, Addl. Director General FIA, was also arrested.

The Federal Investigation Agency conducts the investigations on receiving reports of corruption, either through the P.M.’s Accountability and Coordination Cell or directly from the public. After the investigations, the cases are referred to the Chief Ehtesab Commissioner for trial by the Ehtesab courts. However, the Chief Ehtesab Commissioner, Mr Mujaddad Ali Mirza, has complained that the Federal Investigation Authority and the Anti-Corruption Police have failed to cooperate with the Commission.

SHAMELESS FACES WHO LOOTED PAKISTAN RUTHLESLY : Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif accused of money laundering



We come down hard on Zardari and Malik Riaz, the Perennial Princes of Corruption, but Neglect the Massive Stealth Corruption of Sharif Brothers from the time of Abba jee Sharif, the “lohar,” who became a multibillionaire, through lucrative MES Contracts.  

Nawaz and Shahbaz accused of money laundering

13 November, 2009 
ISLAMABAD: Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif have allegedly indulged in money laundering, according to one of their close associates and a high-profile PML-N leader, Ishaq Dar.

NAB Court documents have recently emerged which show that Senator Dar made some interesting revelations in an accountability court in April 2000.

The court was hearing the famous Hudaibiya Paper Mills case against the Sharif brothers.

The 43-page confessional statement of Senator Ishaq Dar was recorded on April 25th 2000 before the District Magistrate Lahore. Dar was produced before the court by the then Assistant Director Basharrat M Shahzad, of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

Dar, in his statement had admitted that he had been handling the money matters of the Sharif family and he also alleged that Mian Nawaz Sharif and Mian Shahbaz Sharif were involved in money laundering worth at least $14.886 million.

Unknown-2The statement by Senator Ishaq Dar is irrevocable as it was recorded under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

Senator Ishaq Dar is a high-profile PML-N leader and has always been considered close to the Sharif brothers as his son, Ali Dar, is married to Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, Asma.

But in April 2000 the top PML-N leadership had hit a rough patch by then and some of their loyal lieutenants were busy developing a new political system for General (retired) Pervez Musharraf after his October 1999 military coup.

In this context, Ishaq Dar Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif of money laundering in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case.

Interestingly, Ishaq Dar also implicated himself by confessing in the court that he  along with his friends Kamal Qureshi and Naeem Mehmood had opened fake foreign currency accounts in different international banks.

He said that the entire amount in these banks finally landed in the accounts of Hudaibiya Paper Mills Limited.

Senator Ishaq Dar was the main witness against Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif in the case.

The Hudaibiya Paper Mills case is still pending in the National Accountability Bureau.

Since the statement made by Dar was recorded under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code, the statement has become a permanent part of the case against the top PML-N leaders.

If the case is opened again, the Sharif brothers may discover that the tightening noose around them was originally prepared by one of their own family members and trusted lieutenant Senator Ishaq Dar.
