Social media users believe PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz is likely to be behind the leaked videos of party leader, Zubair Umar.
The leaked and explicit videos of Zubair Umar were shared across social media in a frenzy. Politicians from within the party and other parties have been in deep shock after the videos of the country’s senior politicians made the rounds online.
Netizens have been intrigued by who leaked the videos and they believe Maryam Nawaz leaked the videos. However, they have been suggesting various reasons and theories behind their assertions.
Some believe Maryam Nawaz punished Zubair Umar for failing to strike a deal with the establishment. Last year, DG ISPR, Major General Babar Iftikhar had confirmed that PML-N leader Muhammad Zubair had met twice with COAS, General Qamar Javed Bajwa. The DG ISPR said DG ISI Faiz Hameed was also present in the meetings.
Let it be known that creating & strategically releasing blackmail videos has been the hallmark of #PMLN leadership. Now why did @MaryamNSharif release this video for what strategic benefit is the question. #ZubairUmar

The video is in governor house Sindh. @pmln_org and IB had full control of all security of governor house.
This is a @pmln_org and @MaryamNSharif production. This party makes sure to keep compromising videos of everyone to ensure 100% loyalty.

A lesson for others?
While some said that the video leak scandal was orchestrated by Maryam Nawaz to threaten other party members that this may happen to them if they refuse to obey her. She apparently targeted Muhammad Zubair for joining Shahbaz Sharif camp.
Others say that it is Maryam Nawaz because she often threatens to leak videos. A short clip of the interview of Maryam Nawaz with Hamid Mir resurfaced in which she confessed to having more secret audiotapes and videos of different people. She, however, had not named them.
Some say that the video was shot in the same hotel where Maryam Nawaz and Capt Safdar stayed during their Karachi visit. Others believe that these were shot in the Governor House Karachi. Netizens, however, demand that such people should be investigated.
Muhammad Zubair Umar has, however, called these videos fake and doctored.
