Babar Azam sends Rs1 billion defamation notice to Mubasher Luqman

The notice also calls for Luqman to apologize for the false accusations,

Babar Azam is reported to have sent a defamation notice to anchor Mubasher Luqman for making false accusations against him and his family.

According to sources, Luqman had made a series of accusations on social media against Azam, prompting the Pakistan skipper to send a Rs1 billion defamation notice through his lawyers.

The notice also calls for Luqman to apologize for the false accusations, including claims of match-fixing and cautions that legal action will be pursued if the apology is not provided.

The journalist alleged that Babar Azam received expensive gifts such as an Audi E-Tron and luxury apartments in Australia and Dubai, which led to the team’s poor performance in the World Cup.

On the other hand, Pakistan’s assistant coach, Azhar Mahmood also reacted to the allegations spreading on social media following the team’s disappointing performance at the ICC T20 World Cup.

He also stated that he reserves the right to take legal action against those making baseless claims without evidence.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Azhar Mahmood expressed concern about the harassment he and his family have faced due to the accusations.

He wrote, “I have heard some false allegations and narratives […] I will be pursuing legal advice against those responsible for making these false allegations towards me and my family,” Mahmood wrote.

Categorically denying such allegations and terming them “entirely baseless and false”, Azhar Mahmood stressed that the culture of falsely accusing and misleading people to believe a false narrative is dangerous.

“Speaking without evidence and misconstruing facts is a criminal offence and those engaged in such behaviour will be dealt with legal action,” he added.
