Shoe thrown at Imran Khan during rally in Pakistan

On Sunday, an Islamic seminary student hurled shoes at ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif during a function at the Jamia Naeemia seminary in Lahore's Garhi Shahu area

Lahore: A shoe was hurled at Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief Imran Khan during a rally in Gujrat city in Punjab province today.

As Imran Khan was addressing the crowd atop a vehicle, a shoe came flying and hit PTI leader Aleem Khan, who was standing right next to Imran Khan, Dawn reported.

The attacker was overpowered by the crowd. Soon after the attack, Imran Khan concluded his address.

Today’s incident is the third such attack on politicians in the span of a week.

A shoe was also hurled on Sunday at Pakistan’s ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif by a religious extremist today during a function at an Islamic seminary in Lahore. The incident took place a day after religious extremist blackened the face of Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif with ink when he was addressing his party’s worker’s convention in his hometown in Sialkot, some 100-km from Lahore.

Sharif was a chief guest at Jamia Naemia seminary, Ghari Shahu Lahore. As Sharif was heading towards rostrum for a speech, a student hurled a shoe at him that hit his shoulder and ear.

The student also managed to reach in front of Sharif and chanted “Labbaik Ya Rasoolullah” slogan.

The security personnel caught the student and his other accomplice who also chanted “Labbaik Ya Rasoolullah” slogans and gave them a sound thrashing.
