Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan flew to Saudi Arabia for a religious trip barefoot on Monday, reported The Tribune. His wife Bushra Maneka and close aide Zulfi Bukhari and Aleem Khan accompanied him from Rawalpindi’s Nur Khan airbase via a chartered flight.
The couple returned on 13 June after paying respects at the Holy Mosque in Madinah.
Imran told TheNews, “Yes, I arrived barefoot in Saudi Arabia in respect of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH).”
A video clip showing Imran Khan coming out of a chartered plane barefoot at a landing strip in Madinah went viral on social media.
