(PAK DESTINY) IMRAN KHAN’s taunt against Maryam Nawaz’s son Junaid has brought his ex-wife Jemima into controversy as the poor soul has come up to defend her children with Imran.
My kids are “being raised in the lap of the Jews,” announced @MaryamNSharif today.— Jemima Goldsmith (@Jemima_Khan) July 19, 2021
I left Pakistan in 2004 after a decade of antisemitic attacks by the media & politicians (& weekly death threats & protests outside my house). But still it continues https://t.co/TGjUxfT1gC
“My kids are “being raised in the lap of the Jews,” announced @MaryamNSharif today. I left Pakistan in 2004 after a decade of antisemitic attacks by the media & politicians (& weekly death threats & protests outside my house). But still it continues,” Jemima said in a tweet.
Replying to her tweet Maryam took to Twitter too and said: “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.”
This all begun when Imran called Junaid a corrupt like his elders. He targeted him for playing king’s game Polo in London. According to Khan, Junaid plays this game at the expense of looted money.
Maryam took him on and said: “My so is Nawaz’s grandchild and not of Jews like yours. Imran’s sons are being raised in the lap of Jews.”
The comments of both ladies were taken by storm and there begun war between Maryam and Jemima supporters.
Here are a few ones.
Zartash said: “our family is directly involved in corruption and looting the wealth of Pakistan. Leave this woman and her kids alone. Her kids are not PLAYING polo on Pakistan’s money. Usnay apna mulk nahi loota tumhari tarhan. Chawwal”
بہترین جواب۔اگر اتنی تکلیف ہے” تو اپنے سابقہ شوہر کو منع کریں کہ وہ کسی اور کی اولاد کو سیاست میں مت گھیسٹیں اگر اپنی اولاد کے لیے یہ بولنے کا حق رکھتی ہیں تو آپ کو بھی اُتنا ہی حق حاصل ہے۔”
Singer Jawad Ahmed said: “Jemima Goldsmith said that Maryam Nawaz has spoken against Jews,which is condemnable,as religion shouldn’t be used in politics.
Ignore her negative, snide remarks. She's frustrated to see her family OUT of power after 40 YEARS!— Maleeha Hashmey (@MaleehaHashmey) July 19, 2021
Now that they r being questioned 4 their corruption, they r desperately attacking #ImranKhan & his family
Calling Khan's MUSLIM kids "jews" is a sin she doesn't mind committing👎
Jemima ! It was your Ex Husband who started this by criticising son of Maryam Nawaz …. She was quite about this … but she was forced to reply to the non sense comments of IK …— Najib Ahmed (@NajibAh82251349) July 20, 2021
Tell her to keep himself in senses when he talks with loud mouth

But what does Jemima say about Imran Khan’s hypocrisy who is doing nothing but politicising Islam in Pakistan while his children live in a Jewish house?
Maryam Nawaz qualified her statement by saying she did not want to get to this point but that the PMIK forced her hand by mentioning her son. And yet it is unfortunate that many Pakistani politicians blatantly practice antisemitism. PM's chief diplomat did it in May.— Ahmed Quraishi (@_AhmedQuraishi) July 19, 2021
Ignore the multifaced serpent. She is burning because Khan kicked them out of power. You will always be held in high esteem by Pakistanis. How you are bringing your kids up is admirable. More power to you.— Dr Fatima K – PTI (@p4pakipower) July 19, 2021
I know, so do millions of others, that Jemima will forever remain in their hearts and their prayers.— Hanif Qadir (@HanifQadir) July 19, 2021
Because of what she has done, the lives she has touched, the respect she has given to others and NOW rightly deserves.
Unlike the theives & the rats of Lahore.
