A Shoe was hurled at former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by a student at an Islamic seminary in Lahore in Lahore on Sunday, acording to Pakistan Media. Sharif made a brief speech in which he did not mention about the man who threw shoe at him.
The shoe-thrower, whose identification couldn't be ascertained, launched his attack after approaching the stage when Sharif was about to deliver a speech.
According to a report in Dawn, Sharif arrived at Jamia Naeemia to address at a ceremony marking the death anniversary of Mufti Mohammad Hussain Naeemi. The attack came a few hours after an ink attack on Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif at a convention of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz. The security personnel caught the student and his other accomplice who also chanted "Labbaik Ya Rasoolullah" slogans and gave them sound thrashing.
Soon after the incident, the attacker was detained by the seminary administration before handing him over to the police.
