Fawad Chaudhry responds to latest spat with Mubashir Luqman

Federal Minister for science and technology, Fawad Chaudhry on the latest spat with anchorperson Mubashir Luqman, responded that he defended his right to slap the anchorperson as he made derogatory remarks about him on his YouTube channel to get clicks.

In a conversation with the host of Geo News show, the federal minister said that his reaction was natural, adding that he is a human being before anything else.

While defending his actions, Fawad Chaudhry further said that he will not tolerate personal attacks against himself.

“We are all human beings and will react when someone makes such false allegations,” he said.

“I have no regrets for hitting Luqman, I do not recognise the principle that one should not hit another person just because they are a federal minister,” he added.

Chaudhry issued the statement hours after he slapped anchorperson Luqman, at an event over allegations of his clandestine relations with Tik Tok star Hareem Shah.

The altercation had taken place at the valima ceremony of provincial minister Mohsin Laghari’s son where Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen was also present.

Stressing having no regrets for hitting Lucman, he said he did not recognise the principle that one should not hit another person just because they were a federal minister.

“Thousands of people meet me every day,” he said. “People click selfies with me. However, I do not know who she is.”

The minister also criticised TV anchor Sami Abrahim along with Luqman by saying they were not journalists.

“Has any journalist body condemned my actions? Did the Punjab Union of Journalists say anything about it? These [Sami Abrahim and Mubashir Luqman] are accidental journalists; they have nothing to do with journalism,” he asserted.

Earlier, the federal minister allegedly attacked and tortured anchorperson Mubashir Luqman. The incident happened at the reception of federal minister Mohsin Laghari’s son where the anchorperson Mubashir Luqman and Federal minister Fawad Chaudhry got involved in an argument resulted in agitation.
