Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday said the manner in which Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb dealt with the "harassment" from the protesters showed her grace.

In a tweet on social media platform Twitter, he said, "The manner in which Marriyum Aurangzeb dealt with the harassment from the PTI supporters shows her grace. By her calm and honorable conduct, she exposed the ugly face of the harassers & their promoters. We are proud of her."

A group of protesters on Sunday harassed Marriyum in a coffee shop in London, hurling abuses and allegations at her.

The information minister was in a café near the Marble Arch station to buy coffee, where she was heckled by a group of protesters, who surrounded her and began yelling at her. The women protesters continued to target her with inappropriate allegations, while also accusing her of being a thief.

Shouting in the coffee shop, a woman alleged, "Marriyum Aurangzeb is spending Pakistan’s looted money in London". The protesters swarmed around the information minister and continued to harass her but she kept silent and smiled.

She was alos followed by the protesters when she came out of the coffe shop. This act has been largely criticised by PML-N politicians and Twitter.
