The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has submitted an application to the police for the registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) workers for throwing a shoe and a lot at its woman lawmaker, Sobia Shahid, in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly on February 20.PML-N provincial president Amir Muqam told reporters at the Peshawar Press Club on Saturday that the PTI workers, who were involved in the incident, also shouted slogans and used derogatory language against the woman lawmaker. He said that the February 20 incident showed that the PTI workers didn’t know how to behave when it came to women.“The PTI had invited goons to the assembly who disrespected opposition members, particularly women. The PTI violated the sanctity of the house,” he said.

Muqam demanded that the assembly’s speaker take action over the “attack” on the woman MPA. Accompanied by lawmaker Sobia Shahid, PML-N Women’s Wing provincial general secretary Farah Khan, and other office-bearers, the party leader said that what happened in the newly-elected provincial assembly in its maiden session was regrettable.“Why do you take this thing [opposition] to enmity? If you’re given so many seats in the provincial assembly, what else do you want?”Muqam said that it was a serious matter and should be investigated immediately. He said that the incident had brought dishonor to the entire province.“We have video clips to prove that bottles and hashish were thrown at Shobia Shahid in the assembly. Whoever is involved in this should be arrested and punished,” he said.

Whoever is involved in this should be arrested and punished,” he said. Muqam said that the newly-elected provincial chief minister should announce plans for the people’s development instead of giving an ultimatum to the police for the release of those detained over the May 9–10 violent protests.“Having the majority in the house doesn’t mean that you’re not to tolerate the opposition. Political things should not turn into personal enmity. We have submitted an application to the police [Sharqi police station] for the registration of FIR for action against those who threw a shoe and a lot at MPA Sobia Shahid and will also approach the FIA for it,“ he said.
