PML-N Workers Throw Eggs and Ink at Shahbaz Gill Outside LHC

PML-N members threw eggs and ink at Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs Shahbaz Gill at the Lahore High Court (LHC).

Some workers and supporters of the PML-N threw eggs and ink at Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs (SAPM) Shahbaz Gill on Monday, March 15, ahead of his appearance at the Lahore High Court (LHC).

Speaking to the press after the incident, Shahbaz Gill termed it “ghunda gardi” (thuggery), reiterating that he was “totally fine”.
“They are throwing the ink of their own black actions,” Shahbaz Gill said, promising not to retaliate to these actions in similar ways.

“We will not return 10 slaps in place of one. We will not curse in return for their curses.”

Shahbaz Gill was summoned by the LHC had on a petition countering a criminal case registered by the Islampura police on his complaint.

The petition had been filed by Tahir Mobeen and Turkish citizens, Cemil Senocak and Yemen Yemenoglu.

The police registered the first information report (FIR) on January 13 against the petitioners under sections 419, 420, 468, and 471 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC). They asserted that Shahbaz Gill used his political position and power to get the fabricated case registered against them.

When Shahbaz Gill arrived at the LHC for today’s hearing on the petition, workers allegedly belonging to the PML-N threw eggs and ink on him. However, it seems that Gill already knew of the PML-N workers’ plan. In a tweet before coming to the court, the SAPM had said that he was made aware by his journalist friends that an “attack” had been planned.

“I am a soldier of Imran Khan. I will come to the court, will not be afraid of you. We believe in doing politics, [we] are not thugs like you,” Shahbaz Gill wrote on Twitter.

“Three senior journalists told me that you will be attacked [so] don’t come”, Shahbaz Gill said, adding that he was also advised to get the case transferred to a court in Rawalpindi

“I will not, I will fight the case from here. I will never tell PTI workers to do the same kind of hooliganism with PML-N leaders.”

Furthermore, other PTI leaders condemned the attack on Shahbaz Gill and criticised the PML-N for supporting the attack.
