Law Minister Zahid Hamid's home ransacked by Tehreek-Labbaik protesters
SIALKOT - Angry protesters stormed the residence of Law Minister Zahid Hamid in his hometown in Pasrur - a tehsil of Punjab's Sialkot district - on Saturday noon and vandalised the property.

According to Express News, several men belonging to the Tehreek-e-Labbaik broke into and ransacked the minister’s haveli.

They smashed windows and damaged furniture. The minister and his family members are currently in Islamabad.

The news comes hours after security forces launched a crackdown on religious protesters camping at Faizabad Intersection in Islamabad since November 8.

The protesters, who before Saturday numbered some 2,000 people, are demanding that federal law minister Zahid Hamid resign over a hastily-abandoned amendment to the oath that election candidates must swear.

Protests broke out all across the country after the government started taking action against the participants of the Faizabad sit-in in Islamabad.

PML-N MNA Mian Javed Latif was injured in an attack in Sheikhupura by men protesting against the crackdown.

The lawmaker from NA-133 (Sheikhupura) was in the Batti Chowk area to negotiate with the protesters, Express News reported.

One of the MNA’s security guards was also injured in the attack.
