The great deal of hulaballo being created by the members of PML-N these days about the expected return of their exiled comrade is beyond one's understanding. What surprises me is the fact that he has been labelled as a hero. The fact is that there is nothing extraordinary about Shahbaz Sharif to enable him to be called a hero. The way the Sharif family left the country is a story known to all. The way Sharifs escaped the imprisonment was a miracle. They left the country with a pledge not to return within next ten years, but perhaps time runs fas for a free person.
