Look, they removed the judge, it means the video was not fake, how strange, you remove a judge but don't set aside his verdict and Nawaz Sharif is not guilty but is in prison."

SOT, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, PML-N Vice-President and daughter of Nawaz Sharif (Urdu): "You [Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan] have snatched the bread from the children of a daily wager, a small vendor and a factory worker. People catch him and throw him out [of the government]."

SCRIPT
Thousands of people rallied in the Pakistani city of Faisalabad on Sunday in support of incarcerated former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, in a rally led by his daughter, Maryam Nawaz Sharif.
Maryam Nawaz Sharif reportedly led a protest convoy before addressing the crowd from a rooftop.
On Friday, Maryam Nawaz Sharif said her father rejected the conditions for his release offered by the current Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The former Prime Minister and his daughter were convicted last year in a corruption case over their London properties for ten and seven years respectively. Maryam Nawaz Sharif's sentence was later suspended.
