Federal Minister for Information and broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Sunday was heckled and harassed by a group of apparently PTI supporters while she was in a coffee shop in London, United Kingdom.
In a viral video on social media, some people wearing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) caps and holding flags can be seen surrounding the information minister at a coffee shop where they are seen teasing and harassing her.
In another video, the women supporters of PTI continued to target information minister with inappropriate allegations, while also accusing her of being a thief.
PML-N leader and Federal minister of information and broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb called out the harassment she faced in the London’s coffee shop, terming it a “toxic impact” of PTI chief Imran Khan’s “politics of hate and divisiveness”.
“Sad to see the toxic impact IK’s politics of hate & divisiveness has had on our brothers & sisters. I stayed & answered each & every question they had. Sadly, they are victims of IK’s propaganda. We will continue our work to counter IK’s toxic politics & bring people together,” she tweeted.
Taking to Twitter, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif appreciated the PML-N leader Marriyum Aurangzeb’s response to PTI’s harassers saying, “The manner in which Marriyum Aurangzeb dealt with the harassment from the PTI supporters shows her grace.”
“By her calm & honorable conduct, she exposed the ugly face of the harassers & their promoters. We are proud of her,” the premier added.
