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
بہت خوشی ہوئی کہ اللہ نے ہمارے کپتان کو @RehamKhan1 کے فتنے سے بچا کر ایک نیک سیرت بیوی @BushraaManika عطا فرمائی۔— ابو محمد (@As55Bakr) June 12, 2018

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'.
