The Sharifs --Yet Another Scandal

SEE HOW CROOKS & CRIMINALS OPERATE IN THIS COUNTRY

Do watch this. It is a brief talk on the latest scandal, which has yet to unravel fully, which involves the melt down of Abraaj, a company begun by Mr Arif Naqvi, "to do good in the world."

But inevitably wherever some "good" is to be done, the name of the Sharif brothers, being the "Shareefs" they are, happens to creep in.

In the present case, Mr Naqvi apparently enlisted the help of the Sharif brothers to palm off K-electric, one of his ailing enterprises to the Chinese. For their assistance the Sharifs, having international renown on account of their great "charitable " works, were offered 20 million dollars as a contribution from Mr Naqvi to one of their "charities"!

This "goodness" was averted from being consummated because another "goodness", the Panama Scandal, showed up its ugly head just about the time this 20 million dollars was to change hands.

What a crying pity that sometimes even the Lord is constrained to cringe and recoil from certain acts of "charity"!
