Nawaz Sharif’s grandson Junaid Safdar was recently spotted enjoying a polo match in Lahore. Pictures of him were widely circulated on social media following which he was heavily criticised for enjoying a polo match while his grandfather allegedly battles between life and death.

Junaid, the eldest son of Maryam Nawaz and Captain Safdar Awan, is an avid polo player and often shares pictures of himself with his horses.

Meanwhile, on December 21, 2019, Maryam Nawaz had filed a petition in the LHC in a bid to have her name removed from the no-fly list. The PML-N leader, in her petition, had said that she wanted permission to fly abroad so she could be with her ailing father. Nawaz’s brother Shehbaz Sharif had said the schedule for Nawaz’s critical medical procedures had been changed twice because Maryam was not there to accompany him.


The petition was the PML-N leader’s second attempt to have her name struck off the travel restrictions list.
