Pakistan ranking scored 126 out of 174 on the Corruption Perceptions Index published by theTransparency International in 2014 survey. Corruption is widespread in every sector of our country particularly in judiciary, bureaucracy, education, health care, police & law enforcement, public utilities, sports and Taxation. Panama papers have already disclosed that how our elites are involved in money laundering & white collar crimes. 

The Army chief has set an example for politicians to follow for eradication the menace of corruption. The prime minister should immediately form a commission over Panama papers as promised to nation in his speech. 

Time has come when the civilian leadership should stand united against “economic terrorism” like it stands against militancy as across the board accountability is necessary for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of Pakistan.
