Jemima Goldsmith is the latest who have entered into the ongoing war of words between Prime Minister Imran Khan and PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz as Maryam, in her latest tweet, said to the premier's ex-wife, "you have only your ex to blame".
The recent spate of tweets followed PM Imran's recent criticisim during election campaign in AJK that "how the poor are jailed in Pakistan and the powerful get an NRO and go abroad and watch their grandson play polo".
Nawaz Sharif had recently watched a polo match played by his grandson and Maryam's son, Junaid Safdar, in the English town of Windsor.
I have absolutely no interest in you, your sons or your personal lives because I have better things to do and say but if your ex drags in families of others out of spite, others will have nastier things to say. You have only your ex to blame. https://t.co/DxoUqwjoTn— Maryam Nawaz Sharif (@MaryamNSharif) July 20, 2021
In tit-for-tat, Maryam responded during her own AJK rally, saying Junaid Safdar is "Nawaz Sharif’s grandson, not Goldsmith’s".
"He’s Nawaz Sharif’s grandson. He’s not being raised in the lap of Jews," Maryam said.
In her tweet Jemima said: “I left Pakistan in 2004 after a decade of antisemitic attacks by the media and politicians.”
The premier's ex-wife said at the time she had been receiving weekly death threats and protests outside her house in the country.
She regretted that despite the passage of over 16 years, such antisemitic attacks against her were still continuing.
Upon this, Maryam replied in her tweet: "I have absolutely no interest in you, your sons, or your personal lives because I have better things to do and say but if your ex drags in families of others out of spite, others will have nastier things to say.
"You have only your ex to blame," the PML-N stalwart concluded.
