The Woman with whom the occurrence took place said in an interview to Television channels that ”  I took part in the workshop to learn a few things. But he was not replying to my questions.  Later he asked me to come on the stage to teach cutting. I objected, seeing him pushing my head. Then Javed spat twice on my hair and suggested I spit on the customers hair if you feel there is a lack of water in your parlour. The video was made by my husband. As soon as I got down from the stage an assistant of Habib said that he was just kidding. 

 He then stated in a small video clip with a message saying such things are frequently done for fun in workshops, but also apologized genuinely for his behavior if anyone felt hurt.
