In a video, Lodhi is seeing evading questions raised by the Pakistan national during a UN event here.
While the diplomat was apparently addressing media persons, the man, who seemed enraged, was heard asking whether she had a minute to answer his questions and then without waiting for a reply asked: "What are you doing from the last 15 to 20 years. You are not representing us."

Lodhi asked him to stop, to which the man replied he will not as it is not against the law and, moreover he is a Pakistani.
The diplomat 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.
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.
"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.
" 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.
