We don’t need to tell you what all has been happening since last night. But we will, so the JIT Report was released. The Joint Investigation Team that was set up by the Supreme Court to investigate corruption that was alleged against the Prime Minister and his family, while in office, as per the Panama Papers has been the center of everyone’s attention.
Ever since the JIT concluded their investigation and released their report, Pakistani social media has been abuzz and people’s creative juices are flowing. The result is some of Pakistan’s best memes and tweets till date, so here you go, enjoy:
People are making jokes about Imran Khan “winning” this match against Nawaz Sharif like Pakistan won against India in the Champion’s Trophy

Others are recalling iconic images from history, thinking the contents of the report mean Mr. Sharif has been found guilty
Which, btw, is not the case… yet.
