LONDON: Minister of Information Marriyum Aurangzeb on Sunday was harassed by a group of PML-N’s political opponents while she was in a coffee shop in London, United Kingdom.
The information minister was in a café near the Marble Arch station to buy coffee where she was heckled by a group of PTI supporters, who surrounded the minister and began yelling at her. The crowd also continued to videotape Aurangzeb.
The women supporters of PTI continued to target her with inappropriate allegations, while also accusing her of being a thief.
Shouting in the coffee shop, a woman claimed: “Marriyum Aurangzeb is spending Pakistan’s looted money in London.”
The PTI protestors swarmed around Marriyum and did not let her be during what appeared to be her time off from her official duties as a minister.
After the video of the incident went viral on social media, netizens including Mariyum’s PML-N colleague Miftah Ismail and Bakhtawar Bhutto-Zardari — the daughter of PPP co-chairperson Asif Zardari — came to the minister’s defence and criticised the PTI for instigating hatred and propagating misbehaviour among its supporters who harass people that don’t agree with their party’s ideology.
