PTI using ‘woman card’ over Mazari episode: Maryam

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Saturday defended the arrest of former human rights minister and PTI leader Shireen Mazari, saying that no one was above the law.

She was later released on the orders of the Islamabad High Court. Addressing the PML-N’s social media team in Lahore soon after Mazari’s arrest, Maryam said: “If the Anti-Corruption [Establishment] arrested her then they must have a reason to do so.”

“The PTI is playing the woman card,” she said, warning the PTI not to resort to the woman card as she narrated the details and circumstances of her own previous arrests and the “treatment meted” out to her.

“I didn’t play the woman card … I was also a woman, someone’s daughter and was in jail for a baseless political case but I never feigned being oppressed.” Despite that, Maryam said she did not believe in revenge. She said Mazari should face the charges and provide answers and evidence to prove them wrong.

“If she is successful in this and proved innocent then I promise the nation that I will be the first one standing by her. “But this can’t happen that you brutally violate the constitution and then you start blaming the courts why they were opened at night for you,” the PML-N vice president said, apparently referring to PTI Chairman Imran Khan. She claimed that Imran was still the blue-eyed of the establishment. “Nawaz Sharif isn’t the blue-eyed of the system but is of the nation that brings him [to power] again and again.”
