Masjid-e-Nabwi incident

Some pro-PTI Pakistani pilgrims heckled federal ministers Marriyum Aurangzeb and Shahzain Bugti at Prophet’s Mosque when PM Shehbaz Sharif reached Medina to start his three-day official visit to Saudi Arabia.

In a viral video, a group of men can be seen, who encircled the federal ministers, used profanities against them for ousting from power Imran Khan and PTI government through a no-trust move.

Later on, the Saudi authorities arrested some Pakistani pilgrims on suspicion of being involved in the incident and started the investigation.
