The supporters of Shahzain Bugti, President of Jamhoori Wattan Party (JWP) and Federal Minister for Narcotics Control, allegedly attacked former National Assembly deputy speaker Qasim Suri at a private hotel in Islamabad in retaliation of what happened to Shahzain in Madinah, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

The attack came shortly after Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his coterie of ministers were catcalled and jeered at allegedly by the supporters of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) at Masjid-e-Nabawi (Prophet’s Mosque) in Madinah.

Epithets like “chor chor” (thieves), traitors and beggars were hurled at them by the protesters.

It is to be noted here that the Shehbaz Sharif-led delegation is on a three-day visit to Saudi Arabia. The delegation comprises newly sworn-in Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, Shahzain Bugti, and other government officials.

Talking to media in Madinah, Marriyum Aurangzeb indirectly blamed Imran Khan and his party workers for the protest at Masjid-e-Nabawi.

“I will not name this person on this holy land because I do not want to use this land for politics. But they have destroyed the [Pakistani] society,” she had said.

The protest at Masjid-e-Nabawi drew criticism from the people belonging to all walks of life. People including Federal Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Maulana Tariq Jamil, Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi, Hafiz Hamdullah, Shahid Afridi, Muhammad Yousaf, Reham Khan, and others vehemently condemned it.
