 A video has been making rounds on social media since noon, showing PTI leade,r Aamir Liaquat Hussain, bruised with a torn shirt. According to the claims of Hussain, he went to resolve the dispute and to bring both political parties on table for reconciliation, however he was treated with punches and severe beating.

“I came here to bury the hatchet and resolve the dispute, but they welcomed me with torture, hurled abuses against me, so much so they tore my shirt. This is PPP who talks about giving ” Roti (bread), Kapra (Cloth), Makaan (Shelter), and this is how they tore  the cloth”, lamented the grieving Hussain while pointing towards his shirt.

Karachi’s University Road and petrol pumps which were closed the last night during the firing and riots were opened to traffic and public, respectively, following the clash between workers  of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was over.

 The two parties collided after they announced to hold a public gathering at Hakeem Saeed ground in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal area the same day. 

Workers belonging to both parties were involved in aerial firing and pelting stones at one another late Monday evening. However, local police then evacuated the ground after workers of both parties resorted to violence.

Traffic on the University Road was affected following the clash, and two cars were set on fire in Gulshan-e-Iqbal.

During the clash, motorcycles and cars were vandalized that were parked at the Hakeem Saeed ground premises in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal vicinity late Monday evening.

PTI leader Naeemul Haq,  while talking to a private news channel, said, “PPP had requested for venue to the deputy commissioner in a timely manner so it’s out of question for us to change the date or venue.”

While speaking to journalists, PTI’s Ali Haider Zaidi claimed that the PPP pelted their party workers with stones and that Najmi Alam, who got asserted was intoxicated, and had called 70 or 80 suspects of the infamous Lyari gang war.
