A group of 25 Pakistani motorcycles arrived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Tuesday as they travelled to Makkah on a spiritual trip.
The bikers’ group left Lahore on January 6 with the goal of conducting Umrah, and they arrived in the holy country after 18 days of travel. After a 15-day stay in the kingdom, the bikers’ convoy will depart for home.
Ameer Khurram Rathore, the ambassador of Pakistan to Saudi Arabia, and other officials welcomed them when they arrived in Riyadh. At the Pakistani embassy, a reception ceremony was also conducted in their honour. The group received a shield from the ambassador at the ceremony.
Today, the motorcycle club will go to Makkah to conduct Umrah. The bikers arrived in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, earlier on Saturday while travelling to Saudi Arabia.
In their honour, the Pakistani embassy provided lunch. Mukarram Tareen, the group’s leader, spoke at the event and said that while travelling through the nations on their way to Saudi Arabia, they work to create a favourable picture of Pakistan, its rich cultural legacy, and the kind nature of Pakistanis.
