LAHORE (Web Desk)- A former Jamia Neemia student, reportedly a member of Tehreek-e-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLYR), on Sunday hurled a shoe at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, while the former premier was about to address the event members at the seminary in Garhi Shahu.
As Nawaz reached the rostrum to address the participants of the event, an audience member threw a shoe which hit the former premier on his chest after which he climbed the stage and shouted a slogan while standing in front of Nawaz.
Following the incident, in which Nawaz remained unhurt, the attacker was detained by the seminary’s administration and later handed over to the police.
The former prime minister addressed the crowd later on. Nawaz recalled the history of the seminary and praised its late leader, Mufti Naeem, before ending his speech and departing.
