Widely known for his ultra-aggressive public posture, SAPM Dr. Shahbaz Gill was badly treated when he went to Lahore High Court for a hearing. The LHC had summoned him on a petition challenging a criminal case in which two Turkish nationals had complained that Gill used his political position to get the fabricated case registered against them.
When Gill came to the court for the hearing, workers allegedly belonging to the PMLN threw eggs and ink on him. It appears, however, that Gill already knew of the plan as in a tweet before coming to the court, the SAPM had said that he came to know through some of his journalist friends that an “attack” had been planned on him.
This was not the first time that Dr. Gill has been heckled as earlier during hearing of the defamation case last month there were loud sloganeering against him with chants of “atta chor, cheeni chor” till he drove away. This indeed is bad reflection of political behaviour and cannot be condoned. TW
