Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) has reportedly thrown ink at Special Assistant to Prime Minister, Shahbaz Gill on Monday outside Lahore High Court.
The incident happened when Shahbaz Gill was returning from the hearing of the case against a Turkish company. The SAPM for political communication has accused the workers of PMLN of the incident. Reports say, an egg was also thrown at him, however, it did not hit him.
The police have arrested the man alleged for throwing ink and egg at him. Gill addressed the media outside the court following the incident. He slammed the PMLN leadership for resorting to ugly tactics to avenge the government for defeat in the senate elections and cases against them.
Respect is not served it is earned. @SHABAZGIL uses foul language against our leaders all the time whereas his performance is null. People did what he deserve. They are scared to face the public whom they claim to have mandate of.#شہباز_گل_کا_منہ_کالا pic.twitter.com/TKYAqgwZ7h

“Maryam [Nawaz], next time you do something like this, I will come to your house and wash my face there,” Gill remarked while speaking to the media. “We are Imran Khan’s followers, we will not take revenge. We will, instead, teach you values.”
He added that he will face the PMLN leadership without any security whenever they would call him. “I want to tell our workers that if a PML-N supporter comes in front of you, don’t do anything disrespectful because your leader is Imran Khan, and their leader is Nawaz Sharif, who goes around defaming Pakistan,” added SAPM Shahbaz Gill.
Other leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf Murad Saeed and Fawad Chaudhry have strongly condemned the incident on Twitter.
“Not only condemnation but also resistance to the attack of N-League thugs on Shahbaz Gul. A gang of certified dacoits can fall to any extent to demand NRO,” said Murad Saeed on Twitter. While addressing Nawaz Sharif, Saeed said “he is running away from London and inciting against the country and using glue butt: attacked as planned as if it was an anti-national statement.”
شہباز گل پر ن لیگی غنڈوں کے حملے کی نہ صرف مزمت بلکہ مزاحمت ۔سند یافتہ ڈاکووں کا ٹولہ این آر او مانگنے کے لئے کسی بھی حد تک گر سکتا ہے ۔ اشتہاری خود لندن بھاگ کر ملک کے خلاف بھڑکیں مار رہا ہے اور ادھر گلو بٹ استعمال کر رہا ہے : منصوبہ بندی سے حملہ کیا جیسے ملک مخالف بیان تھا

Meanwhile, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said that “The incident of throwing ink on is beyond condemnation. Such actions will increase bitterness. Black deeds will not be eradicated by throwing ink on others.”
It is highly unfortunate Pmln thugs have attacked @SHABAZGIL . Resorting to such tactics will only encourage response which is not favourable to current political culture .

لاہور ہائیکورٹ میں شہبازگل @SHABAZGIL پر سیاہی پھینکنے کا واقعہ مذمت سے آگے کا ہے اس طرح کی حرکتوں سے تلخیاں بڑھیں گی، کالے کرتوت دوسروں پر سیاہی پھینکنے سے نہیں مٹیں گے
