Jibran Nasir’s Journey From “Abey Ooyei” to “Jibran Sahab” in Police Custody
Jibran Nasir is a renowned social activist. He has been a big name in Khadija Siddiqi case and Naqeebullah Mehsud case. However today a “judge protocol” misbehaved with him. Police thrashed and detained him.
Here is what he said while being taken to police station
He was harassed because he did not surrender to judge protocol. Shortly after his detention, such messages started circulating
The police escort briefly detained Mr. Nasir but subsequently let him go when his identity was confirmed. Mr Jibran Nasir has claimed that he is under arrest, which is not the case. He is at liberty to leave the police station whenever he wishes. An inquiry is underway.

So it was expected that Jibran Nasir should shut his mouth and go home. But the question is, why was he maltreated? Judges are appointed to give justice and not enjoy huge protocols. Now some people are criticising Jibran, and terming it as a publicity stunt to get sympathy vote in general election,
and thats the reason why the situation for a common Pakistani never changes. Its our right to be treated in a respectable way. When will we realize it? I agree to every word he says
“ I am not against the poor police man who slapped me , poor man has to feed his family and doing what he is told to do… I am against the system that teaches such behavior , where should I write a complaint against it?” – @MJibranNasir #FreeJibran pic.twitter.com/5zhrS24NDT

We need to first change ourself to change our surroundings. First agree to respect yourself, then expect others to respect you.
