Former president and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Thursday he told accountability officials that the bank accounts being termed fake by them were actually ‘business’ accounts and that “everyone in Pakistan has black money”. Our sources said that at this the investigators touched Mr Zardari’s knees and said that “boss, you’re right.” One of the investigators challenged Mr Zardari’s generalized statement and said his wife had no black money because he didn’t believe in parking his ‘hard-earned money’ in wife’s accounts. Mr Zardari said he loved black money because only the black could be turned into white. “Black money can be made white, but the white money cannot be made black,” he asserted, which forced the investigators to touch and kiss his knees. After a half hour chat with investigators, Mr Zardari came out of the accountability complex smiling.
Iran and US should avoid war
Jamaat-e-Islami emir Senator Sirajul Haq says Iran and America should exercise restraint and avoid war. “Instead of Iran, Donald Trump should start a new venture in Afghanistan, and here we can help him with the supply of Mujahideen or peace talk facilitators,” he said at a peace rally. “Iran is a barren land in terms of war, because their eight-year war with Iraq did not benefit us. We were also not much bothered about Iran’s indifference towards us those times because we were too busy in Afghanistan in those days.” He said the US is always welcome in Afghanistan, not Iran.
