Imran is a coward, we will not let him run away: Maryam Nawaz

  • “Is misbehaving with people [opposition leaders] and calling them names Amr-bil-Maroof?” Maryam Nawaz questions.
  • Says PM Imran Khan should resign if he thinks Pakistan’s affairs are controlled by Nawaz Sharif while he’s living in London.
  • Says “your own party members do not trust you, which has resulted in the no-confidence motion.”

GUJRANWALA: PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz on Sunday took a swipe at Prime Minister Imran Khan and said that “he is a coward” and added that the Opposition will “not let him run away.”

Maryam was speaking during a press conference along with the Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz in Gujranwala, ahead of the premier’s address to the nation in Islamabad.

She said that Imran Khan will be held accountable for using taxpayers’ money on public gatherings and criticised him for capitalising on the religious card to gain political mileage. 

“This money was not your family’s. This was the hard-earned money of the people of Pakistan which you splurged on holding public rallies,” she said while lashing out at the premier. 

Maryam added that the premier “deprived people of food, while inflation reached the highest levels in the country.”

She also censured him for abusing the Opposition leaders and delaying the voting on the no-trust motion, adding that when the premier was held accountable for his misdoings related to the foreign funding case, he used “every means to save himself.”

Taking a jibe at PTI’s ongoing jalsa in Islamabad, where the party has claimed to gather more than one million people in support of PM Imran Khan, Maryam said: “Your jalsa is titled Amr-bil-Maroof (enjoining good). Is snatching bread, flour, electricity,  and sugar from the masses called Amr-bil-Maroof?”

“Is misbehaving with people [opposition leaders] and calling them names Amr-bil-Maroof?” she questioned.

‘Imran Khan should be labelled diesel’

Maryam also called the premier out for referring to Maulana Fazlur Rehman as “diesel” repeatedly and said: “Considering the rising pieces of diesel during Imran Khan’s tenure, he should, indeed, be labelled diesel instead.”

The PML-N Vice-President, while talking about the decision of the National Assembly’s speaker to delay the no-confidence motion session, said that Imran Khan is “violating the Constitution through the speaker.”

‘You have no comparison with Shahbaz Sharif’

Favouring her uncle and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif, Maryam said that he is “a thousand times better than Imran Khan”.

“How can you compare yourself with Shahbaz? When there were floods in Pakistan, he used to visit places while submerged knee-deep in the stagnant water,” she said. 

She also talked about the disgruntled PTI MNAs who had decided to jump ships ahead of the no-confidence motion against the premier. 

‘Your own party members do not trust you’

“Your own party members do not trust you, which has resulted in the no-confidence motion,” Maram said. “Your party has broken up and your companions who used to run your kitchen have lost trust in you.”

Maryam further added that if the premier believes Nawaz Sharif is hatching conspiracies against him all the time and is controlling all the affairs of Pakistan while living in London, then he should be “ashamed of his [governance skills].”

“If you think Nawaz is in the driver’s seat regarding Pakistan’s affairs, you should resign and go home.” 

‘Aapki kanpain taang rahi hain’: Hamza Shahbaz to PM Imran

For his part, Hamza Shahbaz said that PM Imran Khan’s “rhetoric of Naya Pakistan was nothing but a spectacle.”

The PML-N leader also said that his party “does not believe in the umpire but believes in the people of Pakistan.”

He claimed that when the 2018 elections were “stolen,” PML-N was the biggest party in Punjab at the time.

“I have been receiving reports related to the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly already,” Hamza said. “This clearly indicates that ‘aapki ki kaapain taang rahi hain (the government’s legs are trembling)'”.

Bushra Bibi challenges the Nikah case’s verdict in court.

Published

By

According to specifics, Bushra Bibi’s attorney, Khalid Yousaf Chaudhry, entered a plea on her behalf, requesting that the trial court’s decision from February 3 be deemed invalid.

Salman Akram Raja, Salman Safdar, and other individuals will also be parties in this action, while Bushra Bibi’s ex-husband Khawar Maneka and the federal government have been named respondents in the plea.

According to the plea, the former first lady went to her mother’s house in August 2017 after divorcing in April.

Furthermore, the ruling is unlawful, immoral, and un-Islamic because the matter pertaining to Bushra Bibi and Khan’s nikah was outside the court’s jurisdiction.

In a case concerning their marriage during the latter’s Iddat era, a court in Islamabad earlier this year condemned former prime minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi to seven years in prison apiece.

The decision on the lawsuit submitted by Bushra’s ex-husband Khawar Maneka in a temporary court at Adiala jail was announced by senior civil judge Qudratullah. The pair was also fined Rs 500,000 apiece by the court.

Bushra Bibi and Imran Khan’s marriage
In February 2018, the former prime minister married Bushra Bibi in Lahore.

Only the bride’s mother and other close relatives and friends were present for the ceremony. The sisters of the PTI founder, however, were not present.

Former SAPM Zulfi Bukhari and Awn Chaudhary, leaders of the Pakitan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), were present when Mufti Saeed conducted the nikah.

Bibi’s ex-husband Khawar Maneka had petitioned the court last year, arguing that the marriage was unlawful and in violation of Sharia law.
