In a tweet today, the minister shared that the family involved in the incident had expressed remorse and shame over their actions and apologised to him.


“I had already announced to forgo legal action against them. We are all Pakistanis and should not convert the right to disagree into hate. We have to maintain mutual respect,” Iqbal tweeted.

On July 8, a group of citizens chanted slogans at Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal at a renowned food outlet in Behra tehsil of Punjab’s Sargodha district.
