The incident occurred during a workshop organised by Habib in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh. In the video, Habib is seen spitting on a woman’s head in front of everyone, and is heard saying, “if there is a scarcity of water, use saliva.” He then walks towards the crowd, saying, “Abbe is thook me jaan hai (Hey, this spit has life).” Meanwhile, people present there are heard clapping and laughing.

Reacting to the video, the National Commission for Women said on Thursday it has taken cognisance of the incident and chairperson Rekha Sharma has written to Uttar Pradesh DGP to immediately investigate the matter and take appropriate action.

NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma said, “This incident also attracts violation of guidelines issued by the Union Home Ministry under the Disaster Management Act, 2005, whereby spitting in public is a punishable offence in the wake of the Covid pandemic.”

Meanwhile, the woman in the video identified as Pooja Gupta said that Habib called her on the stage for a haircut and misbehaved with him. In a video, she said, ”I attended a seminar of Jaweb Habib sir yesterday. He invited me on stage for a haircut. He misbehaved. He showed that if you don’t have water, you can use spit. I did not get the haircut. I’ll get a haircut from a roadside hairdresser but not Jawed Habib”.
