Maryam Nawaz and Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman have been vehemently leading the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s political rallies across Pakistan. A mix of unpleasant and hilarious statements regarding Capt. Safdar and Maryam Nawaz have been floating on social media. A few Twitter users commented that Safdar kissed the hands of Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman to woo his wife, Maryam Safdar.

This is not the first time Safdar has attracted media attention. Back in October last year, Captain (retired) Mohammad Safdar, husband of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president Maryam Nawaz, had been arrested by the Karachi police from a hotel in Karachi.

Safdar had chanted PML-N’s political slogan “Vote ko izzat dou” (respect the vote) while laying flowers wreath on Quaid-e-Azam Jinnah’s tomb, and the act had prompted criticism from PTI Sindh’s leadership. PTI leaders had approached the police seeking registration of a case against the PML-N leader for breaching the sanctity of the Quaid’s mausoleum. Maryam Nawaz, Mohammad Safdar, Maryam Aurangzeb, and about 200 others were named in the complaint.

According to the FIR, a case had been registered on Section 6 (a convening of meetings or processions in the mausoleum), Section 8 (entry into the mausoleum with a weapon), and Section 10 (the penalty for contravention of provisions) of The Quaid-i-Azam’s Mazar (Protection and Maintenance) Ordinance, 1971.


PML-N vice-President had claimed that the police had broken into her room and arrested her husband. “Police broke my room door at the hotel I was staying at in Karachi and arrested Capt Safdar,” Maryam said via tweet.
