Pakistanis like to express their love for celebrities and politicians. However, unfortunately, the same is also the case when they dislike someone and there are more than a few examples of attacks on political personalities in the country.
Recently, during Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vote of confidence session in the National Assembly, a few PML-N leaders arrived outside the parliament to address a press conference, where they took shots at the government and the premier.
Trouble brewed as PTI supporters — who had showed up to express support for the prime minister — circled the PML-N leadership and went as far as hitting PML-N leader Ahsan Iqbal with a shoe, and smacked Musadik Malik on the head.
However, this wasn’t an isolated or unprecedented incident in Pakistan’s several decades of politics, as there have been multiple occasions where politicians have either faced harassment or assault.
Geo.tv takes you down the memory lane where several ministers were assaulted and when shoes were hurled at prominent ministers and politicians at public events.
