Man tries to hurl shoe at Musharraf


A man tried to hurl his shoe at former president Pervez Musharraf while he was addressing a gathering of the Kashmiri community in Luton. It was the second such attempt on the former president. In February, a man threw a shoe at Musharraf when he was addressing a gathering in Britain. Security personnel promptly got hold of the man and took him away from the venue. Another man raised slogans against Musharraf. Addressing the gathering, the All Pakistan Muslim League chief said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif wanted to sell out Kashmir and the present government was not running national affairs properly. He said the people in Pakistan were seeking a third political force and it was due to the wrong policies of the politicians that Pakistan stood alone in the world. Musharraf said Pakistan progressed in eras of military rule.
