A heart specialist treating Abdul Qavi, whose family has withdrawn the “Mufti” title from him, said on Saturday that his patient is suffering from dementia but he refused to declare him “insane”.

Talking to 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday, Dr Hafiz Abdul Kabeer said “Abdul Qavi in under treatment in intensive care. He is also suffering from lack of sleep which is not good for the brain.”

Abdul Qavi’s uncle Abdul Wahid Nadeem told the TV channel that his nephew is physically strong but mentally disturbed. “He is not behaving like a normal person. A scholar of religion does not indulge in such immoral activities which have brought shame to their family.”

Nadeem further said “For cheap popularity, he even owned those things which he did not do. Now he is under treatment at a safe place.” 

On Friday, the family of Abdul Qavi, whose video went viral the other day in which TikToker Hareem Shah slapped him with a shoe, has withdrawn the title of “Mufti” from him. Addressing a news conference in Multan, Abdul Wahid Nadeem said “The reputation of their family has been tarnished and that is why they are withdrawing the title “Mufti” from Abdul Qavi. Please do not call him Mufti in the future.”

He said “We are a respectable family. We have imparted education to thousands of people. We serve the society without indulging in sects.” He said “We have taken back mobile phones from Abdul Qavi. He is undergoing treatment as he is mentally not fit. He wanted to be famous but he could not see the conspiracy of others. We have also barred from going out of the house.”

Meanwhile, talking to 24NewsHD TV channel, Pakistani TikTok star Hareem Shah said Abdul Qavi is not a mentally disturbed person.


The other day, Pakistani TikTok star Hareem Shah shared a video of slapping Abdul Qavi which went viral on social media.

Talking to 24NewsHD TV channel then, Hareem Shah explained the reasons behind this video. She said that she hosted a dinner for Mufti Qavi. Later, she met Mufti Qavi along with her cousin Ayesha, she added. She said she beat Mufti Qavi with a shoe as he passed inappropriate remarks during the meeting in a hotel room in Karachi. She said Mufti also misbehaved with Ayesha on which she slapped her. She said that both of us left the hotel after the incident.
