London: A fresh picture of Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif having tea at a London cafe along with his family went viral on social media, sparking a debate on his health with the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf members demanding his return to face corruption cases.
In the picture, the 70-year-old three-time premier is seen sitting at a roadside cafe with his granddaughters. He sported a blue shalwar kameez and a cap and apparently looked in better health.
Some ministers got skeptical about the serious nature of his health, saying Nawaz Sharif is roaming on London streets and he even did not bother to wear a mask in this COVID-19 testing time.
"This picture of Sharif having tea in cafe is exposing our law, justice and judicial system. This picture also tells how much people can trust on the accountability system in the country," Science Minister Fawad Chaudhry said.
Prime Minister's adviser Shahbaz Gill said that Sharif had gone abroad after lying in the court.
"The Sharifs think the people are fool," Shahbaz Gill said and asked Nawz Sharif to return Pakistan to face corruption cases against him.
As the picture went viral on social media on Saturday it became top trend, sparking a debate about Nawaz Sharif's health with his detractors asking why can't he return to Pakistan if he is well while his supporters expressed joy at seeing their leader in good health and spirits.
