Earlier this month, The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Maryam Nawaz said, “My son Junaid’s nikah with Ayesha Saif-ur-Rahman Khan will take place in London on 22nd August Insha’Allah. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the ceremony owing to blatant victimisation, bogus cases and my name on ECL.
