No stranger to one liners that leave his admirers and critics wanting more, Shiekh Rasheed, the Pakistani politician and chief of his party Awami Muslim League has been making news all day long today.
This time he’s not in the news for his words but rather his daring escapade in Pindi as he evades arrest from the authorities vis-a-vis the Islamabad lockdown.
In this age of social media, his exploits have been captured and gone viral, and people will be talking about this for years to come.
Did Shiekh Rasheed prove that heroics are not just reserved for those with six packs? Lets dig in.
Every legend is born if he stays true to his local roots. And this is exactly what the wily politician/escape artist did:
Even in these times of despair, Sheikh Rasheed stuck with his Pindi roots and used a CD-70 to escape from Lal Haveli. Legend.
