Science and Technology Minister of Pakistan, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain slapped TV anchor Mubasher Lucman on Sunday during an argument over the Tik Tok star Hareem Shah. Media reports suggest that this incident occurred during the reception ceremony of Punjab Irrigation Minister Mohsin Laghari's son. Other Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) leaders present at the event included Jahangir Tareen and Ishaq Khakwani.
The spat began as Jahangir Tareen and Chaudhry Fawad Chaudhry were discussing the allegations that the TV anchor Lucman had levelled on Chaudhry on his show. Reportedly, Lucman had salaciously linked Fawad Chaudhry to the TikTok star Hareem Shah. It was at that moment that Lucman arrived there, triggering a war of words between him and Chaudhry over the issue.
The Minister protested the claims made by Lucman on his show and subsequently slapped the TV anchor. The altercation stopped when others present at the reception intervened. Soon after, both Hussain and Lucman left the event.
Hussain later took to Twitter and tacitly admitted to the act of slapping the anchor. Earlier, Hussain had also slapped another TV anchor, Sami Ibrahim, in June 2019. Meanwhile, the TikTok star linked to Chaudhry gained popularity over the social media after she shared a video wherein Hareem Shah was seen inside a conference room at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's foreign ministry office.
