RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz Sunday said the PML-N leadership was resolved to confront all challenges in political arena and insinuations like the Lahore incident, and continue serving the masses wholeheartedly.
She said opponents were bent upon using ‘shameful tactics’ to weaken the commitment of the PML-N leadership who stood united under the guidance of former prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.
Addressing the social media convention here at Fawara Chowk of the busy Raja Bazar, Maryam said the PML-N workers were somehow upset due the Lahore incident, but it could not discourage them from moving forward. She was also hurt over the incident, she added.
Referring to the Islamic history, she said the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) did face difficulties, but he preached Islam with affection for the salvation of entire humanity.
Recounting struggle for democracy, she said political leaders like Nawaz Sharif could not be stopped by ‘sit-ins’, conspiracies and other undemocratic tactics. She said those, who were afraid of Nawaz Sharif’s popularity, were hatching conspiracies against him. Today’s incident had, however, given a boost to the popularity of the PML-N’s supreme leader as was evident from the huge gathering at the Fawara Chowk.
The opponents were, in fact, cowards and that was why they resorted to such tactics like the Lahore incident, she added
Maryam said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan had promoted the culture of ‘abusive language’ in the country. Was a condemnation message from him enough as he had been inculcating such violent culture into his supporters, she asked.
Maryam said the huge enthusiastic crowd at the social media convention was a step towards a revolution. “The passion of the people of Rawalpindi is matchless,” she said and appreciated the organizers of the convention. She said the opponents should compete with the PML-N in organizing huge public rallies, meetings, and social media conventions and getting overwhelming majority in elections.
The PML-N leader said the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) could find no proof of any wrongdoing by the Sharif family. Similarly, nothing had emerged against Nawaz Sharif during the six-month trial by the accountability court and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) would not be able to find anything in the extended period of two months, she added.
She said Nawaz Sharif was still made to face courts though he had already been sentenced and disqualified as prime minister.-NNI
