Noman Niaz and Shoaib Akhtar reconciled to stop any further propagandas; as per reports, Niaz apologized unconditionally to the national fast bowler.
Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry summoned the two to his house and settled the matter. On this occasion, Dr. Niaz said:
“Shoaib, I am sorry, what happened in the program should not have happened.”
Shoaib Akhtar said that there was nothing in his heart for Dr. Niaz. The matter was resolved amicably. Noman Niaz was pardoned that night.
“I met Noman Niaz at the house of Fawad Chaudhry. Fawad Chaudhry has issued instructions to MD [Managing Director] PTV to withdraw the letter of damages. I am grateful to those who supported me.”
It was an unpleasant incident on National Television and it had hurt my sentiments thats why it took me a while. Taking a higher moral ground, i am accepting the apology of @DrNaumanNiaz . Lets move on from this.

Addressing the conspiratorial elements, Shoaib Akhtar said that it was the result of a misunderstanding between the two brothers which went away. Noman is the elder brother and he is the real brother. He apologized from the bottom of his heart. And conspiracy theories, please don’t pollute the atmosphere of love with comments, analysis and propaganda.
Remember that Noman Niaz had insulted Shoaib Akhtar in the live program.
Earlier, Dr. Niaz had said in his statement that the response to the program on air was justified, whatever the reason, I had no right to do all this on air, it was my fault.
It should be noted that a few days ago, there was a heated exchange between Shoaib Akhtar and Dr. Niaz on state TV in the presence of foreign cricketers.
