According to the details, the federal minister for science and technology, Fawad Chaudhry, on Sunday allegedly slapped Television anchor Mubasher Lucman over Tik Tok superstar Hareem Shah videos.
The altercation between Chaudhry and Lucman took place at the wedding of Punjab Irrigation Minister Mohsin Laghari’s son in Lahore, where a large number of journalists and members of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) were present.
During the ceremony, Jahangir Tareen, Ishaq Khakwani and Fawad Chaudhry were having a conversation, according to sources. It was then that Mubashir Luqman came there.
A heated exchange took place between Chaudhry and Luqman which led to the minister slapping the anchorperson, the sources said.
However, PTI leaders at the ceremony intervened and took them aside.
Confirming the incident on Twitter, Chaudhry wrote that “people like Mubashir Luqman have nothing to do with journalism”.
Clear that Luqman had recently uploaded a video on YouTube relating to TikTok star Hareem Shah.
He had also high allegations against Fawad Chaudhry and Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz ul Hassan Chauhan.
Before this Chaudhary also slapped BOL TV anchorperson Sami Ibrahim during another wedding ceremony in Faisalabad on June 15, 2019.
