Tik Tok star Hareem Shah revealed who she wanted to meet during her visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on Wednesday.
Speaking to a local news website, Hareem said that it was her wish to meet Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
“I am a very big fan of Shah Mahmood Qureshi. He is like a father to me and a very respectable man,” she said. “I like him a lot. Everyone must want to meet him and so did I. Unfortunately, he wasn’t there when I came,” she added.
Hareem said that it was not right of people to associate her with the foreign minister, prime minister or the other leaders of the PTI.
“If God has given respect to the PTI and helped them to get elected, then what’s the big deal in making a video at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs office?” she asked.
Hareem had kicked up a storm on social media after her Tik Tok video shot at a conference room in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) went viral.
Netizens wondered who had permitted the Tik Tok star to enter such an important government building and make videos there.
An inquiry was initiated after Hareem’s video went viral to find out who allowed her to enter the MoFA building.
Hareem is no novice when it comes to meeting influential political figures. In the past she has met and posted videos alongside a number of politicians including Fayyaz ul Hasan Chohan.
In an earlier interview with Geo News, Shah revealed how she got access to such significant people of stature and power.
"I am a big Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporter myself and have been affiliated with the party. This is how I got the unique opportunity to meet and make TikTok videos with PTI leaders," she said.
