VIDEO: Khana-e-Kaaba’s door especially opened for PM Imran Khan


Prime Minister Imran Khan reached Saudi Arabia on Tuesday on his first official foreign visit. The premier also performed Umrah during his visit and the Saudi authorities especially opened the door of Khana-e-Kaaba for him.

In a video, shared by the Government of Pakistan’s official Twitter handle, Imran Khan can be seen coming out of the Kaaba where he prayed for progress and development of Pakistan.

The GOP tweeted: “وزیر اعظم پاکستان عمران خان عمرے کے ادائیگی کے لیے بیت اللہ شریف پہنچے تو بیت اللہ خانہ کعبہ کا دروازہ خصوصی طور پر عمران خان اور انکے وفد کے لیے کھول دیا گیا۔ عمران خان وفد کے ہمراہ بیت اللہ میں داخل ہوئے۔ نوافل ادا کیئے اور پاکستان اور عالم اسلام کی سلامتی کے لیے دعائیں مانگیں۔”

On Tuesday, after his plane landed in Medina, Prime Minister Khan, in an apparent show of respect for the Holy land, was seen walking out of his plane barefoot.

Other members of his delegation were all seen walking with their shoes on. Even the Saudi officials receiving the prime minister, which also included Medina’s governor, were all wearing shoes.
