Pakistan's Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Maleeha Lodhi, was left red faced after she was heckled by a person during an event, who told her that she "does not deserve" to represent the country,
He asked, "What are you doing for Pakistan? You are a thief and don't deserve to represent our country.
In a video surfaced on social media, Lodhi could be seen evading questions raised by Pakistani nationals during a United Nations event.
While the diplomat was apparently addressing media persons, the man, who seemed raged, was heard asking whether she had a minute to answer his questions and then without waiting for a reply asked: "What are you doing from the last 15 to 20 years. You are not representing us."

Lodhi asked him to stop, to which the man replied he will not as it is not against the law and, moreover he is a Pakistani.
The diplomat composed herself and chided him for the manner in which he put forth the questions. She further said that she would not respond to his questions.
As Lodhi began to leave, the questioner heckled her by saying: "You guys are stealing our money, You guys are thieves and you don't deserve to represent Pakistan."
Twitter on Sunday blocked ISI-backed Pakistani stooge Zaid Zaman Hamid's account in India following Republic's persistent reportage and even an official complaint to the company against handles like his.
During and after the sensitive period of integration of Kashmir with the rest of India, Twitter handles like that of Hamid spread posts and videos filled with vitriol against India. One such video also distorted content from Republic's show and tried to malign the channel and paint an untruthful version of how Indians felt for Kashmiris and J&K.
