Shoe thrown at Nawaz Sharif in Lahore madrasa

Senate chairman’s slot Make or break at peak

Pakistan's former prime minister Nawaz Sharif became the latest politician to be at the receiving end of a shoe hurled at him by former student of a seminary he was visiting.

On Saturday night, "black ink" was thrown at foreign minister Khawaja Asif while he was addressing the PML-N workers' convention in Sialkot city of Punjab province.

The incident happened when Sharif arrived to attend an event at the Jamia Naeemia seminary in Garhi Shahu. As the Pakistan Muslim League Chief reached the stage to address the event, a man from the audience threw the shoe on Sharif, which hits him in the chest.

The security personnel caught the student and his other accomplice who also chanted "Labbaik Ya Rasoolullah" slogans and gave them sound thrashing.

Police said the attacker, identified as Abdul Ghafoor, is a former student of the seminary and was shifted to Services Hospital after being beaten up by the seminary staff and students, GeoTV reported.
