Barefoot Imran lands in Madinah for religious trip

Published: June 12, 2018


A video showing a barefoot Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan coming out of a chartered plane at a landing strip in Madinah has paved way for conspiracy theories.

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.

Bukhari barred from Umrah flight, but allowed later

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’.

    One thing very strange, all the parties are against him. What does it mean? Actually he has challenged the status quo, the corrupts mafias who have made pakistan life worse than any African country. Right or wrong its upto the masses, they need a change or wanted to be more miserable.Recommend

    Barefoot (but he is wearing socks) or not it is neither a news or a headline. Our journalism has gone beyond ‘yellow’……. Recommend
