It is believed that PM Benazir, her husband, Asif Ali Zardari (also), and the Sharif family embezzled billions of dollars of money. They have properties and businesses in the USA, Dubai, and the UK.

Imran Khan started speaking about their corruption in public during the 1990s. However, he never had any hard evidence to prove it.

This information only came to the public when the Panama Papers were leaked. Then, Imran Khan took office as PM, and, using his authority, he gained access to sensitive information. Finally, the public knew about the breadth and depth of the corruption of Bhutto, Zardari, and the Sharifs.

My question is, if Pakistan's military considers themselves the guardians and saviors of Pakistan, why didn't they take any steps to uncover this information before Imran Khan became PM? What was Pakistan's military spy agency, the famous ISI, doing all these years?
