Islamabad [Pakistan], April 13 (ANI): Twitter on Friday was inundated with hilarious memes on Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif after the Supreme Court (SC) disqualified him from standing for elections for the rest of his life.

One of the Twitter users asked the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) PML-N "voters" and "supporters" to use Burnol, a cream which is used for burns.

The same user took to Twitter and wrote, "No issues, lelo (take) tissues."

"Just curious whether #NS will still ask "Mujhe Kyun Nikala" ?" tweeted another user.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Friday disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and former general secretary of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Jahangir Khan Tareen from standing for elections for the rest of their lives.

A five-member bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar, gave the unanimous verdict on several identical petitions pertaining to the duration of disqualification of a politician under Article 62(1)(f) of the Pakistan Constitution, reported Samaa TV.

The Article 62(1)(f) reads, "A person shall not be qualified to be elected or chosen as a member of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) unless he is sagacious, righteous and non-profligate, honest and righteous, there being no declaration to the contrary by a court of law."

"Nawaz Sharif be like: Acha chalta hon memes main yaad rakhna," tweeted another user.

Another user wrote, "now that is called #JummahMubarak Article 62 Supreme Court #FridayThe13th for Nawaz Sharif :D"
