Nawaz Sharif's convoy kills 13-year-old at protest rally in Lahore

He prayed for the well being and protection of his brother and the rally participants

Sharif stepped down after being disqualified by the Supreme Court on July 28 and after staying in Murree and Islamabad, embarked on road journey to his home in Lahore in the company of thousands of his supporters.

Although Kulsoom distanced herself from political activities in recent years, she had been involved in active politics when then Army Chief Pervez Musharraf dismissed Sharif's government in 1999 and jailed him.

According to media reports, as many as 35 candidates have filed nomination papers for the by-poll scheduled to be held on September 17.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif continued a slow, defiant procession down the Grand Trunk Road on Thursday, inching closer to his stronghold of Lahore in a bid to rally supporters after his ouster.

But after Giroud's second-half introduction, his 85th-minute header proved decisive, grabbing Arsenal a vital three points. Former Arsenal legend Paul Merson believes Arsenal will get off to a winning start this season.

"One court has given its decision, now this court will make a decision, the court of the people of Pakistan", Sharif said, asking the crowd if they accept the Supreme Court's decision, a question that elicited a loud "No" from his supporters.

Kalsoom Nawaz will run in the National Assembly by-election in northeastern Lahore next month for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

He said that the gathering of the people in different areas was the testimony that Nawaz Sharif was still prime minister of the hearts of the people and he was still ruling in their hearts and minds.

PML-N leaders are in the process of making arrangements for more supporters to attend the rally. "Isn't it a disgrace to the people of Pakistan that 5 judges ousted the PM who you had voted to power?" "I have never seen such crowd in Muridke", he said. Did I commit any kind of corruption?

Sharif said in his Gujrat speech he would personally visit the boy's home "and try to help his family for life".

Pointing out that gathering here serves as a referendum, he claimed that the court of the people of Pakistan has given its verdict in his favour.

Sharif's convoy moved at very fast pace from Rawalpindi to Jhelum, at times speeding at 120 kms per hour. "Promise me you won't allow your prime minister to be humiliated this way", he said. "Wait for my call to join me in the struggle against such elements as have disgraced the democratic right of the people", he said.

"I don't expect you to reinstate me, but I want you to support me for the betterment of this country".
