Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Monday night changed her profile picture on Twitter amid high political drama over controversial speeches made by her father, Nawaz Sharif, over the past two weeks.
In the new picture, Nawaz, a former prime minister, is seen sitting in a Pakistan Air Force jet. Thousands of followers of Sharif shared her profile picture on social media app. Recently, several journalists have claimed that most of the Twitter following of Maryam Nawaz is fake/bot accounts.

Advocates of the former prime minister posted his pictures with the armed forces of Pakistan across social media platforms. Her new profile picture comes at a time when the former premier has been booked on treason charges. Besides him, other PML-N leaders have been booked on the same charges for controversial speeches against state institutions.
The FIR states that Nawaz has conspired against Pakistan’s prestigious institutions by making provocative speeches while being in London. The purpose of those speeches is to declare Pakistan a ‘state of hooligans’, the FIR claims.

Perhaps the new profile picture is the response of Maryam to the treason case against her father. The picture intends to insinuate the loyalties of the former premier to Pakistan. Maryam, who is known for her aggressive style, has opted to respond to the treason charges in an unusual way.
