In 2010, Babar Azam was 15 years old. According to the woman, he had an affair with her! How can a 15-year-old boy take the step of court marriage? This means that it is permissible to fall at any level for cheap fame🙏#babarazam pic.twitter.com/CLafmFI1Ne— S O H A I L👓 ( سہیل ) (@Msohailsays) November 28, 2020
