Responding to Jemima Goldsmith’s concerns on Twitter, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that she has absolutely no interest in Jemima, her sons or their personal lives.
“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,” she argues.
Earlier, the former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Jemima spoke out against using her children’s name and her Jewish faith for politics in Pakistan.
While mentioning the PML-N leader, Jemima said she had left Pakistan in 2004 after a decade of antisemitic attacks by the media and politicians. “But still it continues,” she added.
Maryam Nawaz had criticised the PM at a public rally in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and said: “He (Junaid Safdar) is the grandson of Nawaz Sharif, not of Goldsmith (Imran Khan’s father-in-law). He is not being raised by Jews (an allusion to Imran Khan and Jemima Khan’s sons).”
Maryam’s statement came as response to the PM Imran Khan’s comments against her son Junaid Safdar and former premier Nawaz Sharif.
In his speech, the PM called out Nawaz for attending his grandson Junaid Safdar’s polo match in the UK while referring to “corruption cases” against the former premier who went abroad in 2019 for medical treatment.
