In a disgraceful incident at a restaurant in West London, former federal minister, and PML-N leader Abid Sher Ali, was seen verbally abusing a Pakistani family.
Media outlets reported that the family involved in the fight said they were waiting in line for their turn on Eid day. However, Abid and Shahbaz Sharif’s son Salman Shahbaz entered the restaurant by jumping in the queue.
Staff members of the restaurant appeared to attempt to diffuse the situation but their efforts failed. At the same time, Salman is shown filming the entire incident with his mobile phone camera. Three videos circulated on Tuesday night: one showing Ali abusing a man identified as Shahid Khan, one showing Khan abusing Ali, and a third showing a statement from Khan’s son.
Take a look at this!
Turkish “Gokyuzu Restaurant,” said Ali confirmed a reservation for 20:30 on July 20 for 13 people. Ali also shared the restaurant’s reservation details with the media, showing a confirmation for his booking.
Umar Butt told the media that Khan was attacked by Ali while he was passing by his table. He then released a video to the media in which Khan’s son said his parents approached Ali and questioned him for breaking the queue to get the table.
“My mother told Abid Sher Ali this is the UK, not Pakistan, where you can jump queues like the royals. In the UK, everyone is equal. My mother brought up the fact that you are having the meal, courtesy of the money of Pakistani people. Abid Sher Ali and a woman started abusing my mother and father. The waiter eventually separated us and we had to leave the restaurant”.
In his statement, Ali showed the reservation booking. “There was a person in the restaurant who used his wife to attack us. The son also used his mother to create a scene by pushing her forward and filming the scene by giving her a placard and then confronting us. She started abusing me and her husband joined her too.”
“They were from PTI and it’s their tradition to do such things. They wanted the video to go viral but I responded with the same coin. The restaurant management threw them out. I warn PTI people that this was just a trailer. We reserve the right to respond forcefully.”
Ali was caught in an embarrassing situation last year as well after being called a ‘thief’ in a public event in London.
Earlier PML-N leader Ishaq Dar was confronted by a woman outside his London resident. She said he can save Nawaz Sharif here but not on the Day of Judgement.
