Islamabad: The plethora of evidence provided by India on Pathankot incident and previous such terrorist acts to Pakistan may not achieved much as far as getting hold of people behind the acts. On the brighter side however, it has made the Pakistani Prime Minister an ace basketball player.

Sources within the Pak establishment say that Mr. Sharif has become a skilled basketball player after ‘making paper balls of the evidence provided by India and throwing them in the dust bin’.

“Yes its true, wazir-azam is all set to join the national basket ball team. It all started when India sent voluminous evidence related to terror act of 26/11 and it was clear that we would not be doing anything about it. As it is he does not have any work. So he used sit in his chair the entire day, make paper balls of the proof provided by India and throw them in the bin. He has become so good at it that he can do it even with a blindfold,” said Mr. Malik, Pakistans Interior Minister.

Apparently, every file that goes to Mr. Sharif’s desk is met with a ‘Good Taliban or Bad Taliban?’ question. If it’s bad Taliban, then we take action and all good Taliban evidence is used for basketball practice.  

“We have almost exhausted all Pathankot evidence like this. Now we have requested India to send some more. Wazir-e Azam ko rozana practice karne ki aadat hai. Time pass ho jata hai unka,” he added as he carried the last set of evidence in the Prime Minister’s office.

When asked if Mr. Sharif’s diminutive frame would come in the way of his basketball aspiration, Mr. Malik replied, “I don’t think that’s a problem. Nawaz miyan has been walking on his toes a lot lately in an effort to overhear Pak Military officials. So that should help increase his height.”
