PML N former minister Abid Sher Ali faces worst humiliation in London during an award show ceremony
LONDON: PML N former minister Abid Sher Ali faces worst humiliation in London during an award show ceremony.
Former federal minister and PML-N leader Abid Sher Ali was forced to leave the stage at an awards ceremony here after PTI workers and office-bearers protested here in west London on Saturday night.
The 17th Pakistan Community Achievement Award was being bestowed upon the people who have achieved extraordinary successes in their relevant fields. He was a guest among the other participating dignitaries in the event.
As soon as Ali was called on the stage to distribute the award to a member of Pakistani business community, PTI workers — including Zahid Raja, Zahida Noori, Zainab Raja, Anwar Saeed, and Muhammad Tanveer — started chanting slogans.
The protesters demanded him to leave the stage but he carried on. However, the trouble started after Rehman walked on the stage and refused to take award. That encouraged other PTI workers in the hall to raise slogans and join in.
Award show organiser Asif Saleem Mitha told the audience that the PML-N leader was his guest and had a right to participate like others. He handed over the mic to Ali, who delivered the speech throughout a noisy atmosphere.
