One protester on Saturday threw shoes at President Zardari in protest at his decision to visit UK despite PM Cameron’s insulting comments and the floods crisis in Pakistan. However, the shoes missed the president but the shoe-thrower was captured and taken away by security men.
President Zardqari said that said that they fought 12 years to end the rule of a dictator and shouted the slogan of 'Giye Bhutto.' He said that the present democratic government will succeed in pulling the country out of its present problems and challenges.

Addressing a big community meeting here at International Convention Centre, he said it was a dream of both Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed to see Pakistan as a progressive and democratic country and the government was working hard to achieve those objectives.
Earlier, scores of people staged protest demonstrations outside the Convention Centre on the occasion of President Asif Ali Zardari’s address to the PPP meeting in Birmingham.
Hundreds of people belonging to PML-N and other opposition parties and the civil society participated in the demonstrations.

Protesters voiced slogans against the president, when he along with Bilawal Bhutto and Pakistani High Commissioner Wajid Shamsul Hasan reached the Convention Center.
The protesters said that the president should not visit the United Kingdom leaving the hapless people of Pakistan at the mercy of raging floods. The president should share the miseries of Pakistani nation in such worst condition, they added.

Heavy contingent of police stopped the protesters from entering into the Convention Center, however they continued their protest Zardari outside the center.
