- Top trend on Twitter against Aftab
- Action against Aftab was demanded from PEMRA
- Sultan Lakhani under public pressure to fire Aftab

Express TV anchor Aftab Iqbal has apologized for his comments about the companions of Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
Aftab made the comments which he said come in a bad taste should not have been made by him. And now he realized his mistake and apologizing from those whose feelings hurt by his comments.
It was a top Twitter trend in Pakistan demanding strict action against Aftab for insulting companions of the Prophet (PBUH).
Twitter user Zeeshan said: “The accursed Aftab Iqbal who insulted the honor of the Companions Rizwanullah Alayhim Ajmeen should be arrested and his program should be banned.”
Thousands of tweets followed on this issue demanding PEMRA to take action Aftab and ban him immediately.
Aftab who ways try to become a daniahwar ‘intellectual’ but the poor soul turned out to be a naive and foolish in this episode of his program on Express TV.
If he had taken the same approach to a powerful institution, PEMRA and related institutions would have taken action on their own.The slogans of Islam are the most oppressed in the Islamic Republic. However, there must be full legal action against him.#صحابہ_کا_گستاخ_آفتاب_اقبال pic.twitter.com/vT8Tj5BRYL— Ibrahim Shahid (@Ibrahimshahid0) April 12, 2021

Very shameful statement by Aftab Iqbal.— Waseem Akram (@WaseemAkramKT1) April 12, 2021
Govt should take strict action against insolents.
We will not tolerate the insolence of any holy person in a country built in the name of Kalima.#واہ_صحابہ_واہ#صحابہ_کا_گستاخ_آفتاب_اقبال pic.twitter.com/K72SDpvEM8

Our demand is that this person has been found guilty of insulting the Companions and he should be punished severely immediately. If no legal action is taken against such a stinking person, then the government will be responsible for the situation. pic.twitter.com/M4LRGu4t01
It will be seen whether Express TV owner Sultan Lakhani takes action against him or face criticism. PAK DESTINY
