Former Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is discussing various aspects of his life and politics with Sohail Waraich in London.


Born on December 25, 1949, Muhammad Nawaz Sharif grew up in a prosperous family where his father was a successful businessman. After joining politics in the seventies, he got the opportunity to work in the government for the first time during the reign of dictator General Zia-ul-Haq, in which he was appointed as the finance minister.

But after the fall of the Pakistan People's Party government in the 1990 elections, he took over the leadership of (IJI) and was crowned Prime Minister for the first time after running a successful election campaign.

But in just three years, his government was terminated due to differences with President Ghulam Ishaq Khan. On this decision, Nawaz Sharif decided to go to the Supreme Court where his government was reinstated under the leadership of Justice Naseem Hasan Shah.But this recovery was only temporary and once again the differences between the President and the Prime Minister did not end after which Nawaz Sharif had to leave the government.


In the elections held in 1993, Benazir Bhutto of PPP won but her own president Farooq Leghari ended her government on allegations of corruption.In the elections held in March 1997, Nawaz Sharif won with a clear majority of three quarters and became the Prime Minister for the second time.


During the second term of government, he tried to build relations with India and invited his then Indian counterpart Atal Bihari Vajpayee to Lahore.In addition, in 1998, during his regime, Pakistan conducted its first nuclear test when Pakistan carried out five nuclear explosions at Chagai in Balochistan.


This time too, Nawaz Sharif could not complete the term of his government and in October 1999, the then army chief Pervez Musharraf overthrew his government and assumed the leadership of the country. Pervez Musharraf, after taking over the government, started various cases against Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif, in which the former prime minister had to go to jail. During this period, Nawaz Sharif's wife Kulsoom Nawaz and his daughter Maryam Nawaz campaigned against the military dictator.


Nawaz Sharif went into exile in Saudi Arabia after his sentence was suspended due to his deal with Pervez Musharraf, and in his absence, his party did not perform well in the 2002 elections. In 2006, during a meeting with his arch-rival Benazir Bhutto in London, the two former prime ministers signed the Compact of Democracy and pledged to return the country to a democratic era and get rid of Pervez Musharraf.


Nawaz Sharif tried to return home in September 2007 after the order of the Supreme Court, but the Musharraf administration did not allow him to get off the plane and returned his plane back to Saudi Arabia from the airport.


But just two months later, he returned home once again and was welcomed at Lahore's Allama Iqbal Airport. In November, he held meetings with other political parties in the country to discuss boycotting the 2008 elections. In December 2007, when Benazir Bhutto was killed in a suicide attack at Liaqat Bagh in Rawalpindi, Nawaz Sharif was one of the first national leaders to reach the hospital.


In the elections held in February 2008, Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League emerged as the second majority party and he entered into an agreement with the People's Party to form a coalition government. But this partnership did not last long and after the differences increased, Nawaz League separated from the government and their nature became so severe that in 2011, Nawaz Sharif filed a complaint against the PPP government in the Supreme Court in the Memogate scandal. Filed a petition in which Nawaz Sharif himself appeared.

Two years later, in the national elections held in May 2013, Nawaz Sharif's party won again, after which he assumed the Prime Minister Office for the third time. But this time, Nawaz Sharif faced his new political rival and former cricketer Imran Khan. And there was his party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf who accused Nawaz League of rigging the elections and held continuous sit-ins in Islamabad from August 2014 to December 2014 to overthrow the government.
