SATIRE: The Branding Of Nepotism – A Tale Of Maryam Nawaz’s Political Empire


Share post:

In a world where nepotism reigns supreme, CM Maryam Nawaz Sharif emerges as the beacon of dynastic politics, hailed as the ‘Brand of Pakistan’ by her loyal followers. 

Provincial Minister for Information & Culture, Azma Bokhari, sings praises of Maryam Nawaz’s divine ability to subsidize bread prices, a feat that even the most seasoned economists would find baffling.

“Following in the illustrious footsteps of CM Maryam Nawaz Sharif, even the provinces of KPK and Sindh are now on the path to bread subsidy enlightenment,” she exclaimed, her voice dripping with admiration.

But wait, there’s more! According to Bokhari, Maryam Nawaz Sharif possesses the unparalleled wisdom of her esteemed father, Quaid Nawaz Sharif, along with the magical ability to compel other provinces to mimic her every move. 

“Whichever project Maryam Nawaz Sharif launches in Punjab, other provinces are compelled to follow suit,” Bokhari proclaimed, as if reading from a script penned by the ghost of political satire past.

And let’s not forget the illustrious Barrister Saif, whose talents are seemingly wasted in Punjab when they could be put to better use in KPK. Bokhari’s suggestion? “Instead of displaying his abilities and skills in Punjab, Barrister Saif should show them in KPK. 

If wisdom and awareness were available at any shop, we would have bought it and sent it to his Chief Minister as a gift,” she concluded, leaving the audience in stitches at the absurdity of it all.

But amidst the laughter and applause, one can’t help but ponder the true cost of political branding and the depths of nepotism that run rampant in the corridors of power. 

As the saga of Maryam Nawaz Sharif continues to unfold, one thing remains clear: in the world of Pakistani politics, reality is often stranger than fiction.
