Federal Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry has a way to be a part of news. Yesterday, in a wedding ceremony of the son of Punjab’s irrigation minister, Mohsin Leghari, Fawad Chaudhry slapped the senior journalist, Mubashir Lucman over some allegations that the TV host made about Fawad and TikTok star Hareem Shah.
Fawad Chaudhry and Mubashir Lucman have gotten into a controversy over TikTok star Hareem Shah
In his statement, Fawad Chaudhry revealed that in a YouTube video, Mubashir Lucman had accused him of making inappropriate videos with the TikTok star, Hareem Shah. He went on saying that in a wedding ceremony, Mubashir Lucman came to him where Fawad demanded to see the videos. Upon denial of having the videos, they got into a ‘scuffle.’
The Minister says they got into a fight and it was nothing more than a ‘scuffle.’ He said it was two-sided fight and both of them were alone and unguarded. He denied any accusations of guards supporting him against Mubashir Lucman.
"کل انہوں نے اپنے پروگرام میں میرے بارے میں کہا کہ ان کی حریم شاہ کے ساتھ ویڈیوز ہیں
آج شادی میں منہ اٹھا کر میرے پاس آ گئے تو میں نے پوچھا کہ دکھائیں مجھے ویڈیوز، تو جواب ملا کہ ویڈیوز تو ہیں نہیں
اس کے بعد scuffle ہوا" – فواد چوہدری@fawadchaudhry @geonews_urdu pic.twitter.com/0uOYSLjQZs

The PTI politician didn’t stop there, Fawad Chaudhry said that Mubashir had nothing to do with journalism and that it’s the duty of everyone to expose such people
مبشر لقمان جیسے لوگوں کا صحافت سے کوئ تعلق نہیں یہ وہ طوائفیں ہیں جوصحافت میں گھس گئ ہیں، ایسے صحافتی دلالوں کو بے نقاب کرنا سب کا فرض ہے۔ https://t.co/5YQhc8eQMK

This isn’t the first time that Fawad Chaudhry has slapped a journalist for things he didn’t like
Previously a similar unsavory incident occurred between Fawad Chaudhry and anchor Sami Ibrahim.
I think Fawad Chaudhary is too frustrated after losing information ministry & Sami Ibrahim was also trying to expose his connections with PPP, thus he took out all his frustration this way. Disgusting stuff!#SAMIIBRAHIM pic.twitter.com/4r4Ha8v0OH

As far as Fawad and Mubashir are concerned, people dug out some old photos of the two together when they were on friendlier terms

They were also quick to find an old tweet of Fawad Chaudhry calling Mubashir Lucman as a ‘friend’

Since Fawad Chaudhry claimed that Mubashir had lied about the politician ever meeting Hareem Shah, people also shared photographs to counter the politician’s statement

However, others felt that Fawad Chaudhry overstepped and this is not how the situation should have been tackled
Accountability of Fawad Chaudhry!
Request for his resignation!
He knows nothing about science, technology, decency or manners! Absolute drunken idiot.#mubashirluqman#FawadChaudhry

Nobody has right to humiliate someone like Fawad Chaudhry has done.#mubashirluqman
— مير نظام 🇵🇰 (@meernizam_) January 5, 2020
They thought he really needed to control his sudden outbursts
I think you really need to take a crash course in anger management #FawadChaudhry. This is no way to behave for a man of your stature. Is this the example you are setting for the people? Extremely disappointing behavior by you.
Relax & do some yoga to take the stress out😊
