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.
