You are thieves, you have been guzzling money for 20 years: Pakistani national accuses their UN representative Maleeha Lodhi

Maleeha Lodhi, who had once attempted to pass off the picture of a Gaza resident as that of a victim of pellet guns in Jammu and Kashmir, was called a thief and a money guzzler by a Pakistani man.

In a video which went viral on social media, Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi was seen leaving a United Nation’s event organised in New York mid-way after being heckled by a Pakistani National who accused her of corruption.

“You are a thief and don’t deserve to represent Pakistan. What are you doing from the last 20 years? You are not representing us,” the visibly irked man reportedly questioned Lodhi when she was addressing media persons on the sidelines of the event. Pakistan-based journalist Naila Inayat had shared the video on social media.

Though the diplomat asked the Pakistani national to calm down, he continued to denounce her. Lodhi further said that she won’t respond to his questions.

Just as Lodhi was about to leave, the man heckled her and said: “You guys are stealing our money, You guys are thieves and you don’t deserve to represent Pakistan.” He further shouted, “Shame on you. You have been eating money all these years.”

Maleeha Lodhi, who was once called out for rumour-mongering as she had flashed a picture of an injured Gaza girl with no connection to India while alleging she was a victim of pellet guns in Kashmir, had in January 2019, knocked the UN to take action against Islamophobia and anti-Islamic speech. She had said that Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for urgent action to counter Islamophobia.

Ironically, Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan had blatantly supported Pakistan’s vague blasphemy laws during the general elections in Pakistan last year.

Similarly, in 2018 India had slammed Pakistan after the Pakistani envoy had made a cynical attempt to raise Kashmir in the UN saying that the people of Kashmir are victims of “egregious crimes” such as killings and mass-blinding.

India had then too criticised Pakistan for their ’empty rhetorics’ and staunchly put it in its place by reminding them that the state of Jammu and Kashmir is an integral and inalienable part of India.
