Sheikh Rashid suggests Maryam fix issues with husband before politicking

Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad on Saturday took an aim at PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz when he advised her to fix issues with her husband, retired Capt Safdar, before engaging in political activities.

The former interior minister apparently referred to a reported tension between Mr Safdar and his wife, which came on the scene when the former slammed the PML-N leadership for voting for the extension of ex-Chief of Army Staff (COAS) retired Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa and regretted his comments against PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

Speaking to a private news channel, he also shared his two cents on turncoats, stating that the lawmakers should not change their loyalties for personal benefits. Mr Safdar also commented that he was not seeing Maryam Nawaz as prime minister in near future.

Following his statements, reports claimed that Maryam Nawaz had barred her husband from issuing policy statements.

Sheikh Rashid, in a series of tweets, said: “Maryam should take her husband onboard before addressing workers”. He said the PML-N did not need enemies as it was being damaged by insiders. 

The AML chief said the friendship with China could not be put at stake at the behest of imperialist powers, adding: “Pakistan-China friendship is higher than Himalayas”.

Lashing out at the government for increasing power tariff, he said burden of line losses worth Rs380 billion had been put on poor consumers. “The 88-member cabinet is answerable to whom,” he asked. Mr Ahmad said only President Arif Alvi and the Supreme Court could save Pakistan from the ongoing crises.

Anchorperson Imran Riaz released after court dismisses charges against him

 YouTuber and anchorperson Imran Riaz has been released following a court order that discharged him from charges of interference in official duties.

Imran Riaz’s lawyer, Mian Ali Ashfaq, confirmed the news on his official X (formerly Twitter) account.

Media reports indicate that on May 29, Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court, Justice Aamer Farooq, allowed Imran Riaz to perform Hajj. However, despite the court’s permission, he was barred from travelling to Saudi Arabia for Hajj on June 3 and had to return home, stating his intent to seek court intervention again.

On June 12, the Islamabad High Court once more permitted Imran Riaz to proceed with Hajj. Yet, on the same day, he was arrested at Lahore Airport, clad in ihram, just as he was about to depart.

This time, Imran Riaz was accused in a case registered at Sarwar Road Police Station in Lahore for allegedly interfering with official duties by forcibly driving his vehicle through an airport checkpoint, damaging a barrier.

However, on June 14, the Cantt Court in Lahore discharged Imran Riaz from the interference charges, leading to his release as per the court’s order.
