PMLN leader Maryam Nawaz mocks Fawad Chaudhry following of video of running to evade to arrest that went viral on social media.
PTI’s senior leader Fawad Chaudhry was granted bail from Islamabad High Court on Tuesday. After being granted bail, Fawad Chaudhry went outside the High Court to return home. Visuals captured on cameras showed Fawad Chaudhry suddenly coming out of his car and rushing back into the premises of the High Court to evade possible arrest by Anti-Terrorism squad.
The video went viral on social media causing Maryam Nawaz to take an indirect dig at Fawad Chaudhry. Taking to Twitter Nawaz said: “We always heard about that political leaders and workers do not get afraid. They voluntarily present themselves for arrest, bravely face imprisonment, do not avoid making great sacrifices, and bear irreparable losses.
“But for the first time in history, a revolutionary party came [in which leaders] plastered their legs out of fear, placed buckets on their heads, sat on wheelchairs, hid in hospitals, courtrooms, and bathrooms, and ran without shoes,” wrote Maryam while ridiculing the PTI.

According to details, Fawad Chaudhry was sitting inside his car after securing bail from IHC when he saw Anti-Terrorist Squad personnel moving towards him.
دیکھا سُنا اور پڑھا تو یہ تھا کہ سیاسی لیڈران اور کارکنان گھبراتے نہیں، نظریے کے لیے بہادری سے گرفتاریاں پیش کرتے ہیں، حوصلے سے قید وبند کا سامنا کرتے ہیں، بڑی سے بڑی قربانی دینے سے گریز نہیں کرتے، نا قابلِ تلافی نقصانات برداشت کرتے ہیں مگر تاریخ میں پہلی مرتبہ ایک انقلابی جماعت…

As soon as he saw the cops moving towards him the PTI leader ran out of his car and into the premises of the IHC to evade arrest. Videos of Fawad Chaudhry’s dramatic dash into the IHC are going viral on social media.
The police made a move to arrest the PTI leader despite his submitting an undertaking in the IHC of not violating section 144 and taking part in protests.
The IHC on Tuesday ordered authorities to release the PTI leader from custody after he was detained on May 10 and declared his arrest “illegal”.
Fawad Chaudhry was apprehended by the police last week as he emerged from the Supreme Court building, where he had sought refuge for over 12 hours in an attempt to evade his impending arrest.
