LAHORE – The incident of slogans at Masjid-e-Nabwi against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his delegation drew criticism from all sections of society.

A day earlier, PM Shehbaz Sharif and his delegation reached Madinah on a three-day official visit to Saudi Arabia in a bid to revive bilateral relations and seek more financial assistance to tackle economic challenges following the ouster of former premier Imran Khan through a no-confidence motion.

A group of people on Thursday surrounded the delegation of the Pakistani government when it entered the Prophet’s mosque and started raising unwelcoming slogans against it, violating the sanctity of the mosque where Roza-e-Rasool (PBUH) is located.

The video of the incident is being widely shared on social media to condemn people involved in it. 

Federal Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb in an apparent reference to Imran Khan said that she did not want to name the person responsible for the incident. She added that fixing such attitudes will take time.

Renowned scholar Maulana Tariq Jameel also condemned the protest that took place at the Prophet's mosque and said that disrespect of Haram Sharif is not acceptable in Islam.
