Recalling his memories, he said he respected Qandeel Baloch for three reasons including she was his guest and she belongs to Multan speaking Saraiki. To a query on Qandil Baloch’s claim of receiving life threats, he said he did ask anyone serve her life threats. KPK Minister Forestry and some MPAs from KPK requested him providing cell number of Qandeel Baloch. About his exchange of cap with Qandeel Baloch, he said large number of people were present when she came to him. He went to toilet for a while and Qandeel Baloch wore his cap in his absence. She excused on wearing his cap because she was not wearing her Dopata, Mufti Qavi said.

She said she felt sorry for him on his loss of position in Ruet-e-Hilal Committee and called him to express her feelings, but he did not take the call.
