#Prophet #Mohammed slippers missing for 16 years: #Pakistan top court orders probe –  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,

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.

“Chief Justice of Supreme Court has formed a JIT comprising of officials from Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Military Intelligence and senior police officials to probe missing slippers of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH),” a press statement issued from Supreme Court stated on Sunday.

“We can’t even protect Prophet Muhammad’s slippers. What a shame,” Chief Justice Saqib Nisar remarked on Sunday. A pair of slippers, believed to have been used by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), had gone missing from Pakistan’s Badshahi Mosque (royal mosque) on July 30, 2002.

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, where it had been on display. Dozens of pilgrims and visitors used to visit the site every day.
