From Saudi royal treat to highest gallantry award, the Pakistani police officer is being rewarded for her brave act of saving a woman by taking on a mob in the Lahore market.

Assistant Superintendent of Police Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi's swift role in pacifying the angry mob and safely escorting the woman out of the restaurant has earned her praise and recognition.

A video showed ASP Naqvi trying to clear the confusion surrounding a Pakistani woman who was mobbed by a crowd after they mistook the Arabic writings on her dress for Quran verses.

The policewoman explained, “The woman had gone shopping with her husband. She had worn a kurta that had some words written on it. When some people saw it they asked her to remove the kurta. There was confusion…"

Subsequently, the woman issued an apology, expressing regret for any misunderstanding. “I bought the kurta for its design and didn’t anticipate this misunderstanding. I had no intention of disrespecting the Quran, but I apologise for any offence caused.”

Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf bin Said Al-Malki would arrange a royal visit for ASP Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi and her family following her heroic actions in saving a woman from a violent mob in Lahore’s Achhra Market, reports Geo News.

The source said Nawaf bin Said Al-Malki appreciated the courage of the police officer and told her that the Saudi government would bear the expenses of her travel to Saudi Arabia with her family as a royal guest.

Below are the latest posts wherein people are making a beeline to click selfies with her.
