Imran flew to Saudi Arabia on Monday accompanied by wife Bushra Maneka and close aide Zulfi Bukhari from Noor Khan Airbase in Rawalpindi. After paying respects at the Holy Mosque in Madinah, the couple headed to Makkah for Umrah.
Since the clip went viral, some social media accounts linked the incident to a previous statement by the ex-husband of Maneka where he claimed that the former couple walked barefoot to Pakpattan Sharif to fulfill 'wishes'.
