PML-N vice chairman Maryam Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s former wife Jemima Goldsmith have engaged in a bitter Twitter battle over Maryam’s antisemitic assault on Imran Khan’s youngsters. Maryam Sharif has lately focused Imran Khan’s youngsters “being raised in the lap of the Jews” referring to the PM’s former wife Jemima Goldsmith.
Reacting to the assault, Jemima took to Twitter and wrote that this was the explanation she had left Pakistan in 2004. “I left Pakistan in 2004 after a decade of antisemitic attacks by the media & politicians (& weekly death threats & protests outside my house). But still it continues,” Jemima wrote on Twitter.
Imran Khan’s election image needs to be ‘thief’, says Pakistan chief Maryam Nawaz
Maryam Nawaz Sharif replied to her and stated she will only blame her ex, referring to Imran Khan. “I have absolutely no interest in you, your sons or your personal lives because I have better things to do and say but if your ex drags in families of others out of spite, others will have nastier things to say. You have only your ex to blame.”
In a current speech, Imran Khan referred to Nawaz Sharif attending his grandson Junaid Safdar’s polo match within the United Kingdom in 2029 and stated, “The poor should go to jail and the powerful get NROs (National Reconciliation Ordinance) and go park themselves abroad and watch their grandson’s polo match.”
“You need a lot of money to keep a horse and play polo. So tell us where this dear grandson got this money from. It’s your [the people’s] money!” Imran Khan stated, as quoted by the Dawn.
“I didn’t want to bring children into it, but the way you’re talking, you’re going to get a befitting reply..He’s Nawaz Sharif’s grandson, not Goldsmith’s. He’s Nawaz Sharif’s grandson, he’s not being raised in the lap of Jews,” Maryam Nawaz stated in reply.
