Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz took her political rivals to task on Wednesday, saying they had developed a ‘phobia’ which was incurable.
“Nawaz-Maryam-phobia seems to be an incurable disease endemic to all opponents,” deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter tweeted.
“Imagining how agonising the slow burn would be! Poor souls!,” she added.
The statement comes days after Nawaz condemned “suppression of voice of dissent in the country, saying that attempts to curb social media freedom were tantamount to attack on freedom of expression”. He was responding to reports that PML-N supporters were being arrested for their social media posts.
Earlier in the day, Maryam, in another tweet, advised political rivals not to fear her father as he did not believe in revenge. Nawazs was ousted from power in a landmark judgement of the top court in the Panama Papers case on July 28.
