نہ میں گرا نہ میری امیدوں کے مینار گرے
پر لوگ مجھے گرانے میں کئی کئی بار گرے
سوال زہر کا نہیں تھا، وہ تو میں پی گیا
تکلیف لوگوں کو تب ہوئی جب میں جی گیا pic.twitter.com/arHqjB2SDr

Moonas Elahi’s tweet on Imran khan’s firing
عمران خان @ImranKhanPTI پر قاتلانہ حملہ پاکستان میں جمہوریت کو خون سے رنگنے کی ناپاک سازش ہے۔ اللہ کا شکر ہے کہ دشمن ناکام ہوا۔ پاکستان کے دلیر کپتان کی جرات کو سلام اور ان کی جلد صحتیابی کی دعا کریں۔ اس حملہ کے مجرم نہ چھپ سکیں گے نہ بچ سکیں گے _

Imran Khan was leading a march of protesters to Islamabad to ask for early elections.
Gunshots were heard near Imran Khan’s reception camp at Allahwala Chowk in Gujranwala. This was reported by a local news station called Geo News. It said that a number of people were hurt.
About 200 km from Islamabad, the event brought back chilling memories of how former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was killed during a rally in 2007.
On Thursday, a gunshot hit former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan at one of his rallies in Pakistan. The gunman was stopped by a supporter of Imran Khan, and he has been taken into custody. Reports said that he was the only one at the scene.
During the protest march, Imran Khan was attacked. In Punjab, Arindam Bagchi, a spokesperson for India’s Ministry of External Affairs, said today that India is “closely watching” what happened at Imran Khan’s rally. During his meeting with the media, Mr. Bagchi said,
The change just happened as I was walking into this meeting. This is something we’re paying close attention to.
