A man on Sunday hurled shoe at former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at Jamia Naeemia, Lahore, theGeo News said, adding that the attacker appeared to be a student of the seminary.

"This hurt the sentiments of millions of Pakistanis including myself", he said.

But the PML-N president cautioned that today was not a day to give and receive congratulations.

He said they are not leaders but an embarrassment. History will also remember Nawaz for eliminating terrorism through the sacrifices of armed forces and almost eliminating load shedding, he added.
