Shocked by the case of Prophet Mohammad’s slippers missing from Pakistan’s iconic royal mosque for 16 years and angered by inability of country’s law enforcement agencies to recover them, Chief Justice of Pakistan’s Supreme Court has formed a Joint Interrogation Team (JIT) to probe into the case.
Legend has it that the pair of slippers were first gifted to the emperor Tamerlane on the conquest of Damascus in 1400 and later brought to the sub-continent. (Supplied)
Apparently, thieves picked up the sacred relic from a glass case inside the Pakistan’s Badshahi Mosque, which was built in 1673 during the Moghul period. (Supplied)
