Personal Life

In 2021, a Lahore court directed the Federal Investigation Agency to open a case against Babar after he was accused of harassment and blackmail by Hamiza Mukhtar. The previous year, Mukhtar stated that Azam “forced her to have an abortion and made false promises of marriage.” According to “ESPN cricinfo,” “Mukhtar filed a complaint with the FIA – Pakistan’s federal investigating body – alleging that she had received threatening phone calls and messages from unidentified people. On investigation, the FIA found one of the numbers to be registered to Azam – who they refer to as Muhammad Babar. Azam was summoned to appear before the agency but didn’t. In his place his brother Faisal Azam appeared, asking for more time.” In January 2021, Mukhtar withdrew the complaints she had made in 2020, stating, “I am recording this statement without any pressure. Some of my friends encouraged me to make false allegations against Babar to gain fame. Next time, If I make any such statement, action should be taken against me.”
