The lawyers continued the protests on Wednesday and Thursday. However, the protest turned violent. Hassan Khan Niazi tweeted that the protest wasn't peaceful anymore. He blamed the ensuing chaos on the absence of the Punjab government.
Not peaceful anymore. Absence of Punjab govt. was going to cause this chaos. CM Punjab doesn’t know the law and the lawyers https://t.co/db7uLhOgVY— Hassaan Niazi (@HniaziISF) December 11, 2019
