Last year on this day, I and Shahid Khaqan were freed from Adiala Jail on the orders of Islamabad HC after facing Imran Khan’s political victimisation. PMLN leaders have been target of Imran’s vendetta but their resolve has grown stronger. Today Hamza Shahbaz wins freedom too. pic.twitter.com/ZQchjDthnT
