Pakistan to approach Saudi Arabia for action against Masjid-e-Nabawi slogan chanters

ISLAMABAD: Following the slogan-chanting at Masjid-e-Nabwi (PBUH) against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his delegation, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Friday announced that Pakistan would request Saudi Arabia to take action against those involved.

Addressing a press conference flanked by Adviser on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira, Sanaullah warned PTI members of serious consequences and advised them “to stay within their limits”.

“If you want to fight with us, do democratically,” the interior minister said, adding that boundaries shouldn’t be crossed while fighting democratically.

Commenting on former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed’s statement before the Madina incident took place, Sanaullah said that former prime minister Imran Khan and Rasheed’s “planning over the incident is on record.”

He said it was clearly said that “when these people [Pakistani delegation] will visit the two holy mosques, we will see how people treat them.”

The interior minister said that he is under severe pressure after last night’s incident; however, he has asked everybody to refrain from taking any action, warning them of party discipline against them if anyone took any action.

“It is very easy to gather and send around fifty men but this action makes politics difficult,” he said, adding that this is not good for the parliamentary system.
