In a recent rally in Lahore, Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, criticized Imran Khan for his approach to seeking international support. During her address, she highlighted the difference in ideologies between two significant dates: May 9, 2023, and May 28, 1998.

Maryam expressed pride in Pakistan’s nuclear power achievement on May 28, 1998. However, she claimed that May 9, 2023, brought shame to the nation due to violent protests that occurred after Imran Khan’s arrest by paramilitary rangers in Islamabad. She thanked the military for protecting Pakistan’s nuclear program and acknowledged the contributions of law enforcement agencies, politicians, scientists, and engineers involved in its development.

Taking a swipe at Imran Khan, Maryam mocked his alleged cowardice, suggesting that if he were leading the country on May 28, 1998, he would have hidden with a bucket over his head. She referred to him as a “jackal” and accused him of begging the United States for assistance during challenging times while simultaneously accusing the US of conspiring against his government. Maryam emphasized the importance of brave leadership for a nation.

Maryam also praised her father, Nawaz Sharif, for his role in making Pakistan invincible. She recounted how Nawaz Sharif promptly responded to India’s nuclear tests while on a foreign tour, inquiring about Pakistan’s capability to conduct nuclear tests. She stated that he rejected an offer of $5 billion from then-US President Bill Clinton to halt Pakistan’s nuclear test. Despite facing threats of sanctions, Nawaz Sharif remained steadfast. Maryam credited him with contributing to the defense and economic progress of the country.

In her address, Maryam condemned the May 9 riots and accused Imran Khan’s party of being responsible for them. She claimed that those who build the country are remembered, not those who set fire to it. Referring to the recent exodus of members from Imran’s party, she contrasted it with the loyalty shown to Nawaz Sharif by his supporters.

Nawaz Sharif, who currently resides in London, sent a recorded message congratulating the nation on the 25th anniversary of Pakistan’s nuclear blasts. He expressed his desire to take the country forward and highlighted his past achievements as prime minister, emphasizing the need for economic, industrial, health, and educational progress.

The article is based on Maryam Nawaz’s speech at a rally in Lahore, highlighting her criticism of Imran Khan and the praise for her father, Nawaz Sharif, for his contributions to Pakistan. It captures the key points and sentiments expressed by Maryam Nawaz during the event.
