A scuffle broke out at Marriot hotel Islamabad on Tuesday evening apparently after Aftaar.

PTI dissident MNA Noor Alam Khan, PPP leaders Nadeem Afzal Chan, Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, and Faisal Karim Kundi were attending an Iftar party at the hotel where an elderly man hurled abuses at the dissident PTI member.

The elderly man apparently a PTI supporter abused the politicians and accused them of “selling vote” and called Noor Alam Khan a ‘turncoat’ which sparked the heated exchange between them.

The video of the incident has gone viral on social media, showing, Khan and Khokhar thrashing the elderly citizen after he threw a bottle at the dissident PTI lawmaker Noor Alam Khan.

The incident at Marriott Islamabad is condemnable! It is not about Naya or Porana Pakistan. 

Every citizen must respect the lines of public & private, as well as professional and personal.

A citizen name-calling politicians in their private sittings is as wrong as a politician physically hurting them also.

Here is how Netizens reacted to the incident.

 

On the other hand, reports emerge that MNA Noor Alam Khan following the incident has submitted an application to the Secretariat Police Station in Islamabad, seeking registration of a case against the unidentified citizen.

Khan in the submitted application has maintained that the elderly man started swearing at him while he was having Iftar dinner with the PPP leaders.

After being told to stop using offensive words, the alleged PTI supporter attacked the lawmaker, said Alam while demanding the police take legal action against the accused.

“The man did not stop and assaulted me and Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar with intent to kill, at which point we tried to stop him in our defense,” he claimed.

Noor Alam complained that PTI workers have misbehaved with him in the past as well, of which there is a video record available.

He has requested the police officials to take action against “such miscreants”.
