New York, August 13
Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, was in a purported video seen heckled by a man here claiming to be a Pakistani. In the video circulated online, Lodhi was seen evading questions by the man during an interaction with the media.
When Lodhi was leaving the event, the man heckled her and shouted,”From last 15-20 years, what are you doing?” He then shouted loudly, “I have a question for you.” When asked to stop recording by the people present at the event, he shot back, “I’m not going to stop recording. It is not against the law. I am asking her a question...I am a Pakistani.”
When Pakistan’s top diplomat at the UN refused to answer, the man heckled her, saying she “did not deserve to represent Pakistan.” However, the authenticity of the video could not be ascertained.
There was no official response from Lodhi and the Pakistani Mission. — PTI
