New Delhi: Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif-led delegation, who is in Saudi Arabia on a three-day official visit, was received by “Chor, Chor” slogans as they entered Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina.
Videos have been circulating and published by various Pakistan news platforms that show the crowd around the delegation chanting “Chor, Chor (thief)” slogans.
ABP cannot independently verify the authenticity of the video.
I am present in Madina Shareef. As Bugti & Maryam Aurangzeb entered, slogans of CHOR CHOR greeted them. No living Muslim should be subject to that in the Mosque of Prophet (PBUH). So shameful, so shameful, so shameful. pic.twitter.com/ZK1GAUdaHY

Pakistan’s Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, who was part of the delegation heckled in Masjid al-Nabawi, hinted at Imran Khan and his supporters for the faux pas.
Without naming anyone she said people violated the sanctity of Masjid al-Nabawi and their leader taught them nothing but rudeness.
“This is the destruction of the society and I do not want to name this person on this holy land, I do not want to use this holy land for politics. The catastrophe is in front of you today,” Marriyum Aurangzeb told Dunya News in Madinah.
The Information Minister further said a new era of relations with Saudi Arabia is beginning and cooperation with the Arabs will increase in all fields.
“In the last four years, relations with close friends have deteriorated. The former government has ruined relations with the whole world,” she added.
