Islamabad: Mubashir Luqman will host show on Dunya TV today and “answer to all accusations” levelled against him after a video leak, showing off-the-air remarks of a Malik Riaz interview with him and Mehar Bukhari.
Luqman tweeted on Monday that “I am sure a lot people will be shocked who had spread rumors that I had run away to UK to avoid an inquiry. Well I am here.”
He cursed all those people who kept on using abusive language against him on social media and told them to “please go off my time line or I will block you”.
He advised all gossipmongers to “read Quran and see what it says about those who spread rumors”.
When one of his fans told him that he was shocked to see the leaked video and asked Luqman if he was guilty over the episode, the anchor replied: “If I was guilty why would I be back? Why would I not run away? And guilty of what man? Have a heart and wait for the show.”
He said that a lot of people abused him and his family over the past three days and said he felt sorry about that.
He claimed that the video leak was a conspiracy against Dunya TV, as the channel is now dominating its competitors.
