[VIDEO] Disgruntled Pakistani protests in London call to ‘shoot Nawaz Sharif dead’
PTI UK elected body has distanced itself from the protest.
A group of disgruntled protestors gathered outside Nawaz Sharif’s Avenfield flats, where they raised slogans against him and attempted to breakdown the main gate. According to the details revealed by The News International, a group of 40 protestors wearing PTI caps, lead by Tariq Mehmood, gathered outside former Prime Minister’s residence raising slogans in the favor of the ruling party.
Tariq Mehmood has previously been linked with Musharraf’s All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP), and former interior minister of Sindh, Zulfiqar Mirza. He holds no direct position in PTI’s UK elected body but is often seen arranging and leading protestors in favor of Tehreek e Insaf.
Dear @bethsGS, one of your employees Ms. Soraya Aziz (HOD Computing) is threatening 3 times Prime minister of Pakistan. Clearly physical violence and harassment threats – plz take appropriate actions against her. Thanks

Although the reports indicate that the majority of the participants of the protests have been seen earlier in pro-PTI gathering, but PTI UK elected body has distanced itself from it. PTI’s Information Secretary London Taqveem Ahsan Siddiqui issued a statement:
“The PTI has not called for any demonstration outside disqualified former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s residence.”
“It has been brought to our attention that an invite to demonstrate outside his residence is in circulation. PTI UK does not have any intention to call or join any demonstration outside Nawaz Sharif’s residence until he abides by his bail condition”, Taqveem further added.
