An Islamic seminary student today hurled shoes at Pakistan's ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif during a function at a seminary here, a day after a religious extremist blackened the face of Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif with ink.

Soon after the incident, the seminary administration detained the attacker before handing him over to the police.

As per the reports, the shoe was thrown by a former seminary student during Sharif's visit to Jamia Naeemia seminary in Garhi Shahu. The attackers were identified as former students of the seminary. Pakistan Police also took him to the hospital for first aid as he got injured by the beatings of staff members and students who were present there.

"Tolerance should be given priority in politics", he said. In its message on Twitter, PTI said that it was regrettable that PML-N's policies have turned the people against the party to the extent that they [the nation] have resorted to such antics.

Condemning the incident, Chairman Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Mustafa Kamal said quick measures should be taken to curtail intolerance in the society.

The mainstream parties-Pakistan People's Party and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf-condemned the incident.
