The Ummah effect

Turkish president Abdullah Gul has said today that he has convinced Nawaz Sharif to run for by-elections for NA-123. This comes amidst rumours that one of the reasons Nawaz Sharif is holding back from announcing his candidacy is because of a deal with the Saudi government that he would not run for office until October 2010.

The amazing thing about these two news items is that Nawaz Sharif is so open about the interference of various foreign powers in decisions as basic as whether or not he can or should run for office. Imagine the public reaction if these countries were not Muslim countries.
