Claim: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif has reached Saudi Arabia from London to perform Umrah.

A fake screenshot was shared by multiple Twitter accounts that passengers have refused to travel with Nawaz in the same airplane.

The screenshot was taken from 7News and it has the name of the reporter Rana Waheed.


Fact: However, the news turned out to be old and the reporter himself clarified that this has nothing to do with Nawaz’s recent visit to the Kingdom.

In a tweet, he said, “This news and screenshot are old. I left 7news three years ago, and now I am working in PNN as a special correspondent.”

Political Secretary to Maryam Nawaz, Zeeshan Malik, also retweeted the clarification of the reporter.

Sharif is expected to spend the last 10 days of Ramzan as well as celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr in Saudi Arabia on the invitation of the royal family.
