Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Sharif has launched a scathing attack on the Pakistan Prime Minister by revealing the hardships she faced when she was lodged in prison under the administration of the Pakistan Army led by the Imran Khan government. In a startling revelation on November 12 (Thursday), Maryam alleged that apart from her jail cell, the jail authorities had installed cameras even in the washroom she used in jail.
“I have gone to jail twice and if I speak about how I, a woman, was treated in jail, they will not have the audacity to show their faces,” she said referring to the Imran Khan government in a recent interview on Thursday. Maryam spoke about the alleged hardships she had to face when she was lodged in the prison by the Pakistan government.
For the uninitiated, Maryam Sharif was arrested last year in the money laundering case. The Imran Khan government had claimed that the Maryam Nawaz Sharif’s family had used one Chaudhry Sugar Mills for money-laundering and illegal transfer of its shares. Whereas, Maryam Sharif claimed that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had arrested her by violating the law and that she was being politically victimised.

Meanwhile, Maryam furthered: “I don’t want to hide behind these incidents. I am struggling today, so I do not want to show that I was affected. I do not want to cry that I was abused. But I definitely want to bring this truth to the world about the status of women in jails,” she said.
Hitting out at Imran Khan and his government and the plight of woman under his regime, Maryam Sharif said: “If they (Imran Khan govt) could break into the bedroom of Maryam Nawaz, get the cameras fitted in her washroom, you might wonder what they would have done to the rest of the women?”. She insinuated that until Imran Khan govt is in power, no woman is safe in Pakistan.
