Her tweet in Urdu

The  guy was harassing the family during the interview – which made the family upset. I first lovingly explained that don’t do this, but despite the explanation, this guy didn’t understand and was making a lot of noise – after which I made sure that his action wouldn’t be tolerated by giving him any opportunity.

People have different opinions about this video some People supported her while some said she should not have slapped him and some people are even saying it is merely a publicity stunt.
