Maryam Nawaz looks from her son’s wedding went viral on Pakistani social media. After pre-wedding festivities that lasted for an entire week, a grand Baraat ceremony of Maryam Nawaz’s son Junaid Safdar took place in Islamabad on Tuesday, 14th December 2021. The president of PML-N (Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz), Shahbaz Sharif, was also in attendance, but the mother-in-law remained the centre of focus. Social media users couldn’t stop discussing how graceful Maryam Nawaz looked at the event while criticizing her for making the bride look less beautiful.
Maryam Nawaz Looks Become Talk of the Town
The public was in awe that they ranked Maryam Nawaz looks higher than the bride. According to the reports, she wore an emerald green dress with floral designs made by famous fashion designer Nomi Ansari. The groom wore traditional sherwani in white and Kulla designed by another elite designer HSY (Hassan Sheheryar Yasin). However, very few have talked about the bride and groom because the majority’s attention was diverted towards the politician.
Criticism for Stealing Bride’s Thunder
Some social media users opined that it was okay for Maryam Nawaz to look young and pretty, but the problem was with upstaging the bride. They believed that one could have let the bride shine on the biggest day of her life.
One thing led to another, and folks also came forward with scathing criticism based on allegations of corruption on the Sharif family. They alleged that all the wealth showing off in the viral photos and clips came from the stolen taxpayer’s money when PML-N was in power.
Some elements connected criticism on Maryam Nawaz for stealing the bride’s thunder with something against feminism. Folks explained that their complaint on Maryam was how she chose to dress for the occasion rather than misogynistic remarks. It means that actual misogyny was in Maryam’s dress which stole the limelight from the bride and made Maryam the headliner.
Pakistanis Defending Maryam Nawaz
Criticizing Maryam Nawaz looks at her son’s wedding seemed like a cheap political shot because every woman wishes to look her best at her children’s wedding, regardless of what others think. If a privileged woman is not vibrant on that auspicious day, it could mean that she belongs to an oppressive household like most in Pakistan.
Even those who don’t support her politics condemned the way folks were passing comments on Maryam Nawaz looks. They urged the public to leave political differences aside and stop random gossiping that generally seems derogatory for women.
