A bizarre moment was witnessed at an awards ceremony in London when a man refused to accept award from former federal minister and PML-N leader Abid Sher Ali in London.
The incident occurred on the night of Feb 29.
The 17th Pakistan Community Achievement Award was being bestowed upon the people who have achieved extraordinary successes in their relevant fields. He was a guest among the other participating dignitaries in the event.
As soon as Ali was called on the stage to distribute the award to a member of Pakistani business community, PTI workers — including Zahid Raja, Zahida Noori, Zainab Raja, Anwar Saeed, and Muhammad Tanveer — started chanting slogans.
The protesters demanded him to leave the stage but he carried on. However, the trouble started after Rehman walked on the stage and refused to take award. The man left the stage by saying: “I don’t accept awards from crook.”
Ali said it was unfortunate that PTI had turned a non-political event into political.
