I agree with CM Punjab that Sharif family has served the purpose of rule of law. JIT was not a court but they have appeared before it, which shows the commitment of PML-N. We have ensured transparent application of rule of law. The democracy has succeeded today. Our party has serious reservations about modus operandi of the JIT .

Dr. Dost Muhammad (Religious Scholar):
Every Muslim is aware of the fact that he was cousin of Holy Prophet (PBUH). The daughter of Holy Prophet (PBUH) also got married with him. When Holy Prophet (PBUH) declared his prophet hood, he was one of the persons who assured his support and help to the Prophet (PBUH). The entire life of Hazrat Ali (RA) was according to the teachings of Islam. He stood by the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in every thick and thin and till the last day of his life. We should stand united against those who are against the teachings of Islam.
