Lion, tiger at Pakistan ex-PM Nawaz Sharif’s Lahore rally
Islamabad: In an unprecedented event in Pakistan, the supporters of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) brought a lion and a tiger to the Nawaz Sharif-led Lahore rally on Tuesday, the News International reported.

It reported that the animals representing the party’s symbol were brought to the camps set up in the National Assembly (NA)-130 constituency to welcome former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. Scores of PML-N supporters took selfies with the lion and tiger locked in iron cages. The wild animals have been brought to multiple PML-N public gatherings in the past.

However, PML-N leader Marriyum Aurangzeb said that on Nawaz’s instruction, a “real lion, brought by one of its supporters for the PML-N rally, has been returned”.

“Nawaz Sharif has instructed that no real lion or any other animal be brought to any rally in Pakistan,” she said in a tweet.

The News International reported that Marriyum also said the PML-N supremo took strict note of bringing a lion to the rally on Mohini Road and directed that the animal be sent back immediately, after which the lion was sent back.
