Maryam Nawaz returns to Twitter after five months


Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz has returned to Twitter after five months of undeclared absence.

In a tweet on Sunday, she prayed for her father on the eve of Al-Azizia and Flagship case verdict.

“The last time I saw her was in the coffin. The last time I saw him smile was with her. May Allah have mercy on both of you. Ameen,” Maryam tweeted while sharing pictures of her parents Nawaz Sharif and late Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.

Maryam also updated her profile picture and replaced it with an old photograph of her parents.

Begum Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of the former prime minister, had passed away in London on September 11 after a months-long battle with cancer. Both Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz were in Adiala Jail at that time.

The last tweet from Sharif’s daughter was back in July, a day before Pakistan held general elections that brought Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to power for the first time.
