After being caught forging Lahore rally images, Maryam Nawaz has made another gaffe on Twitter, exposing her father’s relations with Israel.
The Vice-President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), who has a large fan following on Twitter, had mistakenly shared the link to an interview of i24, an Israeli news channel, believing that Noor Dahri, a UK-based scholar had exposed how Prime Minister Imran Khan had sent an advisor to Israel in a bid to normalize ties with the Jewish state.
She apparently wanted to use this interview as a political card against PM Khan but was caught off guard, as the footage also included a mention of her father having previously offered an olive branch to Israel.
Dahri revealed that Nawaz Sharif had sent official delegations to Israel twice during his first two tenures as a premier.
He started detailing how an unnamed advisor to PM had visited Israel last month with a special message from the premier, and then said:
PM Imran is not the only one to take this initiative. Looking at history, Nawaz Sharif sent two delegations to Israel to normalize relations.
He revealed that one of the delegations even comprised of religious leaders from Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s party. The tweet had quickly gone viral before being deleted hours later.
However, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) shared a screen recording of her deleted tweet. Since then, #اسرائیل_کا_یار_نوازشریف has been trending on Twitter.
