Suleman Shehbaz, son of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, appeared on a podcast where among other matters, he discussed the history of Ittefaq Group, the Sharif family business.

As a clip of the show went viral, Twitter had objections to Suleman Shehbaz’s version of history.

He said that the Sharif family prioritised business first and politics second.


“In 1970’s Ittefaq Group (Family business of Sharif family) was so big that no one knew about Tata and Birla in the region,” said Suleman to the host.

It is pertinent to mention here that Tata Group was founded as a private trading firm in 1868 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata.

Twitter had all kinds of reactions to Suleman’s statement.
