Mahira Khan pointed out how hospitals are supposed to be safe spaces even in times of war, and how it was a scary situation. "These are the law makers, the providers of justice, the educated ones of our country. Scary to see," she tweeted.

Tamgha-e-Imtiaz winner, Mehwish Hayat also spoke out against the attack saying, "You’d think that these lawyers whose job is to uphold the law would know better."

Khaas actor, Ali Rehman Khan cited how the Prophet (PBUH) discouraged attacking hospitals. "Our Prophet (PBUH) has ordered us to protect the sick and ailing. Is this how we do it? Gangsters, not lawyers," he tweeted.

Bilal Ashraf termed the lawyers involved in the violent protests 'hooligans' saying, "Lawyers behaving like hooligans What if any of your family members were suffering in the hospitals or fighting for their lives?"

It is indeed a sad day for the country and one that we hope is not repeated.
