Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication Dr Shahbaz Gill on Tuesday announced that he has forgiven those who had thrown eggs and ink at him a day earlier.
The prime minister's aide had arrived at the Lahore High Court (LHC) to attend a hearing. However, the situation turned ugly when slogans were shouted against the PTI leader and ink as well as eggs were thrown at him.
"Yesterday, I was attacked at the PML-N leadership's behest at the court," he tweeted. "Daily wagers and women, in particular, are being used by immoral people. I forgive those who attacked me."
کل عدالت میں لیگی قیادت کی ایماء پرمجھ پرحملہ کیا گیا. اخلاق سے گرے لوگ غریب دیہاڑی دار افراد خصوصاً خواتین کا استعمال کر رہے ہیں۔میں حملہ کرنے والوں کو معاف کرتا ہوں-میں کسی غریب اور نا سمجھ کو جیل میں نہیں دیکھنا چاہتا۔پولیس سے گذارش ہے کہ ان کے ساتھ کوئی برا سلوک نہ کیا جائے— Dr. Shahbaz GiLL (@SHABAZGIL) March 16, 2021
Gill said he does not want to see any person who was "poor or a simpleton" in prison. "I request police not to treat them harshly," he added.
Gill had mostly remained unharmed during the incident, but some of the ink landed on his face and hands, TV footage showed.
