A guard of PMLN leader, Shahbaz Sharif, was slapped for not opening the door of the car timely. The video went viral on social media in which a member of his security team slapped another person while Shahbaz Sharif sat in the car.
Sharif did not admonish his guard for slapping another guard publicly and seemed unbothered by the situation. The video has gained massive views and reactions on social media.
Netizens have called out Shahbaz Sharif for displaying arrogance and mistreating his employees. Some said that Shahbaz Sharif is responsible for violating the human right of being treated with respect and dignity. Shahbaz Sharif has not yet commented on the controversy. Twitter users say the video shows how deeply the ruling elite of PMLN believes in class difference and does not deem people below them in status and power worthy of respect.

Beggars can’t be choosers: Shahbaz Sharif
Earlier, Shahbaz Sharif came under intense media scrutiny for calling the Pakistani nation beggars. His statement: ‘Beggars can’t be choosers” created quite a storm. He passed these remarks during an interview with anchorperson Shahzad Iqbal on Geo News. The anchorperson had asked him how he will ensure equal relations with America if he becomes the next prime minister. Shahbaz Sharif, in a much-shocking statement, said: “Beggars can’t be choosers, please understand this.”
His blatant statements had stirred intense reactions on social media where social media users and the public voiced their anger against Shahbaz Sharif for calling Pakistan and the nation, beggars. Netizens compared the recent statements of PM Imran Khan and the opposition leader, Shahbaz Sharif.
In his several speeches in the past few days, PM Imran Khan says he vouches and strives for an independent foreign policy for Pakistan and that he will not be surrendering to the whims and demands of the USA or any other western countries. The sitting premier said he wants to make Pakistan an independent country that takes decisions according to the best interests of the nation.
