"Repeat offenders": UN Envoy on Imran Khan's Dhaka video tweet for India
New Delhi : Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was left red faced after he tweeted a video footage from his official Twitter handle to explain the situation during cops clash with Muslims protesters in Uttar Pradesh, India. However, the footage proved to be from Dhaka, which was shot in 2013.
Reacting sharply to the tweet top diplomat Syed Akbaruddin responded by saying, "repeat offenders".
On Friday, Imran Khan had shared a video footage on Twitter after Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh sought his help as reports emerged that hundreds of angry people have surrounded the iconic gurdwara in Nankana Sahib- - a town in Pakistan where Guru Nanak was born - and threw stones, with devotees inside.
"Indian Police's pogrom against Muslims," Pak PM then tweeted, tagging a seven-year-old video of police brutality from Bangladesh. He later deleted the post.
"Repeat Offenders..." Mr Akbaruddin, who is India's permanent representative in the United Nations, wrote on Twitter, with the hashtag "#oldhabitsdiehard". He also shared the clip again.
