Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry slapped anchorperson Mubashir Luqman during the wedding ceremony of Punjab Irrigation Minister Mohisn Laghari’s son in Lahore. A heated exchange took place between Chaudhry and Luqman during a conversation which led to the minister slapping the anchorperson, according to the sources. 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 and that it was everyone’s duty to expose such people. Chaudhry also slapped Bol TV anchorperson Sami Ibrahim during another wedding ceremony in Faisalabad in June 2019.
