Pakistanis Are Furious Over Jibran Nasir Being Detained For Refusing To Give Way To A Judge's Protocol

By Aam Nawab | 2 Jul, 2018

For those of you who still may not know this, Mohammad Jibran Nasir is an independent candidate for the upcoming elections. He’s also an activist who’s been walking the talk as far as bringing about change is concerned.

However, not long ago, he live streamed this jarring video of him being forcefully taken away by some men.

Though the initial video caused an outbreak of panic amongst Pakistanis, Jibran Nasir kept updating his followers as and when possible.

He highlighted that he was “assaulted and arrested by a protocol for not giving a VIP the way on the road.”

The elaboration over what happened spanned over a few videos.

Moreover, since our awaam loves proof, he also documented an eyewitness’ take on the matter.

Jibran’s refusal to give way to a VIP’s protocol almost cost him his life. Even as a legitimate political candidate, he was not spared. Obviously, that sends a message to the rest of us and where we stand.

Once news spread on social media, all hell broke loose. 

People couldn’t help but feel angry.

Moreover, they demanded that he be freed.

However, people also noted that what happened to Jibran wasn’t out of the ordinary.

Regardless, they were appreciative of his composed demeanor.

What shocked some people was the lack of media coverage regarding the matter.

Others also speculated over what would have happened had the detained not been Jibran.

Regardless, people remained supportive.

Jibran Nasir, too, has been active and has been sharing updates.

He explained how things went down at the police station.

One can only imagine what would have happened if it wasn’t Jibran Nasir they were dealing with. Moreover, what if it was someone else and the media simply didn’t intervene? One shudders at the mere thought of that scenario. However, it can’t be denied that such incidents take place time and again.

Jibran’s statements ring loud and clear in the face of this incident.

Talking to MangoBaaz about what happened, here’s what Jibran stated:

“I am not against the poor policeman who slapped me, poor man has to feed his family and [is] doing what he is told to do… I am against the system that teaches such behavior, where should I write a complaint against it?”

He also shared this video, further elaborating on his statement.

Simple and Basic Demand. I am not interested in suspension of the protocol officers who beat me up and took me to be locked up. That poor man is following orders and is a result of his training. Nor am I demanding any apology from the High Court Judge who allowed all of this to happen in front of him. My person isn't the issue here. I want this to be a cause to define legal authority of such VIP protocols and their training and sensitization teaching them how to behave with citizens. We citizens pay the salaries of these VIPs with our taxes.#AamAdmi #NoMoreVIPCulture

To have to face everything you speak against is a monumental task. However, Jibran and his supporters have managed to jump over this hurdle, raising awareness in the process. Here’s hoping this sets an example and serves as the much-needed blow to the existing VIP culture in Pakistan.
