The most prominent social activist and lawyer in Pakistan, Jibran Nasir was beaten up and detained by Karachi Police on Monday evening. The independent political candidate from Karachi refused to give to a judge during a security convoy. The judge in question was of Sindh High Court Faisal Kamal and the incident took place in Clifton.

Jibran Nasir was driving on Khaliq-uz-Zaman road in Clifton Block 08 where he met with the security convoy of Sindh High Court judge. It was revealed that the members of the security convoy signaled Jibran to give way. But Jibran refused to follow through and apparently, some of the security personnel was found to be misbehaving him. Therefore, he was stopped, beaten up and taken into custody.

Jibran Nasir recorded a Facebook live video just when it happened…

As of course, Pakistanis on social media were not having it at all. They expressed their anger and resentment and called for an immediate release of the lawyer. What is more inspiring is how Jibran took charge and took control of the entire situation, without losing sweat and rationally taking on everything.

As soon as the news took over social media, Pakistanis stood up for him and the hashtag #FreeJibran went on

This is one manifestation of the toxic VIP culture in Pakistan which Pakistanis have to go through. These VIPs considered it rational to abuse and harass the general public who do not follow their VIP regime.

Have your say regarding what happened with Jibran Nasir yesterday in Karachi?
