As Sharif was heading towards rostrum for a speech, a student hurled a shoe at him that hit his shoulder and ear.

Earlier on Saturday, a miscreant smeared ink on the face of Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif at a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) convention.

The student chanted a slogan "Labbaik Ya Rasoolullah" and managed to reach out to Mr Sharif.

Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, on Sunday continued veiled attacks on the judiciary, saying "the people can not allow five persons of any institution to send an elected prime minister packing". The student then started chanting slogans against the premier.

Is it not a systematic move to abuse, malign and slender political figures whosoever are standing with former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif?

The incident of shoe-hurling took place on Sunday during an event at Jamia Naeemia seminary.

Immediately after the incident, furious PML-N workers nabbed the perpetrator and manhandled him before handing him over to the police. Pakistan Police also took him to the hospital for first aid as he got injured by the beatings of staff members and students who were present there. The police said that they have arrested two other suspicious persons from the seminary.

Prior to that on February 24, Interior and Minister for Planning, Development, and Reforms, Ahsan Iqbal was also attacked by a shoe while delivering a public address. TLYRA had carried out a prolonged protest against the government in Islamabad previous year for amending the law related to the finality of Prophet Muhammad.

"This incident doesn't affect my politics because there are still thousands of people praying for me", he was quoted as saying by the local Dawn News.
