Ulema from all schools of thought condemn Masjid-e-Nabvi incident

LAHORE  –  Renowned religious scholars from all schools of thought on Friday condemned the violation of the sanctity of the Masjid-e-Nabvi (PBUH) in Madinah. A day earlier, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his delegation had reached Saudi Arabia for a three-day official visit at the invitation of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz. Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif, Finance Minister Miftah Ismail, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb, Shahzain Bugti, Mohsin Dawar, Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, Chaudhry Salik, and four members of PM Shehbaz Sharif’s staff are accompanying him on his visit. However, when Minister for Narcotics Control Shahzain Bugti and Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb visited the Holy Mosque, they were welcomed with slogans of “chor, chor (thieves)” and harassed and raised objectionable slogans against Marriyum Aurangzeb. Meanwhile, the protesters also misbehaved with the JWP chief Shahzain Bugti and pulled his hair. The protesters continued to film the entire episode with their mobile phones. Following the incident, religious scholars from all schools of thought condemned the incident and shared their views on it as well.
