Lodhi was addressing the media persons when a man asked her whether she had a minute to answer his question or not and said: "What are you doing from the last 15 to 20 years. You are not representing us."
Lodhi asked the man to stop but he continued and said he will stop as it's not against the law.
Lodhi 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 man said: "You guys are stealing our money, You guys are thieves and you don't deserve to represent Pakistan."
The man tried to follow her, while, people present at the venue attempted to calm him down. As Lodhi was leaving the venue, the man yelled: "Shame on you. You have been eating money all these years."
Netizens did not miss the opportunity to question the diplomat, who has also served as the Pakistan Ambassador to the United States.
"She has enough of living in America send her back to Pakistan," commented a netizen.
Some accused her of misusing the taxpayers' money and asked her to go back to Pakistan.
"She is enjoying privileges and perks on our tax money. She is only master to organise cultural events while being a permanent envoy of Pakistan in UN, she is an utter failure of our 'parchi system," said another user.
Twitterati also heaped praise on the person who hurled the pointed questions at Lodhi.
"Salam hai bhai, jis ne sawal kiya.. Shabash (Salute to the guy who dared to ask such question)," read one twitter post.
"Yes that man is absolutely right she has done nothing for us at UN for last fifteen years, What is she doing there," another twitter user posted.
"Point that has never been raised in fact," reacted another person.
