A video of Pakistani Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb being heckled by Imran Khan supporters in London is being shared by Indian social media users claiming she was harassed by Pakistanis in the UK for not not wear hijab.

The video shows a crowd surrounding Aurangzeb in a cafe while hurling insults at him and accusing him of stealing “money from Pakistanis”.

Several Indian accounts shared the video with a Hindi statement that translates to: “Pakistani Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb has always sported a dupatta (hijab) on her head. Yesterday in London she was drinking beer in a very expensive bar, some Pakistanis came to know and they all started insulting her.”

(Original text in Hindi – . )

FACT CHECK

BOOM discovered that Aurangzeb had been heckled by supporters of former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and the party he founded Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. Aurangzeb is part of the Pakistan Muslim League (N) and is currently Minister of Information and Broadcasting in the country.

Pakistan experienced political turmoil after the fall of the Tehreek-e-Insaaf coalition government led by Imran Khan, Khan being ousted from his post as Prime Minister which was taken over by Shehbaz Sharif of the PMLN.

A search for “Marriyum Aurangzeb + London” showed several Pakistani, Indian and international media reports of how she was heckled in London where she is attending the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Pakistani daily Dawn reported: “Videos widely shared on social media showed Aurangzeb being harassed and heckled by people wearing PTI colors in a store” and added: “…Aurangzeb can be seen in what appears to be a cafe, surrounded by PTI supporters who yell at her, mock her, and record her with their cell phones. She takes a sip of her drink unfazed by a disrupter yelling at her through a megaphone.

Taking that as a clue, we searched for more videos and found a clearer version of the one that went viral, tweeted by Pakistani journalist Mughees Ali.

In this, some members of the crowd who heckled Aurangzeb can be seen sporting the PTI colors of red and green and the party logo as hats and sashes.

In another video, tweeted by several people shot while Aurangzeb is not in the cafe, but walking down the street, she can be seen followed by other hecklers, one of them carrying the PTI flag. .

In the video above, one of the women heckling Aurangzeb taunts her for not covering her head. However, the claim that she was heckled for not wearing a hijab abroad is misleading as the ambush appears to be political with PTI supporters behind her. Additionally, in all of the videos, the hecklers can be seen carrying megaphones, indicating this was a planned ambush.

Additionally, Aurangzeb can be seen walking into a small store and buying a can of Diet Coke and not a beer contrary to the viral claim. In a screenshot, the pop can is seen in his hand.

Aurangzeb also tweeted about the incident by retweeting a video of the incident and said, “Sad to see the toxic impact of IK’s hateful and divisive policy on our brothers and sisters. I stayed and I answered every one of their questions. Unfortunately, they are victims of IK’s propaganda. We will continue our work to counter IK’s toxic politics and bring people together.

Sad to see the toxic impact that IK’s politics of hate and division has had on our brothers and sisters. I stayed and answered each of their questions.
