The 26-year-old Zeenat Shahzadi was abducted on August 19, 2015 by unknown armed men when she was traveling by an auto-rickshaw in Lahore.
Iqbal stated that the tribal groups of Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa provinces helped a lot in her recovery.
"Zeenat Shahzadi today has been reunited with her family in Lahore and we are happy for her safe recovery".
A Pakistani journalist who went missing two years ago while following an Indian citizen's case has been found, according to officials.
It was a result of this action on the part of Zeenat that the security forces were bound to agree that Hamid was in their custody. To make her research stronger, she had also got in touch with Fauzia Ansari, the mother of Hamid Ansari, through social media. Later that year, in August, she disappeared en route to work.
Shahzadi was reported to have been abducted by Pakistani agencies.
Traumatised mother and Mumbai-based professor Fauzia Ansari, 55, is elated that Pakistani journalist Zeenat Shehzaadi (24) has been freed from the clutches of her abductors.

The Justices said that the president could not exclude those with family or organizational ties to persons or entities in the U.S. Trump , the Supreme Court could have removed the case from their docket while leaving lower court decisions undisturbed.
The freelance reporter, who used to also refer to herself as a "human rights activist", had been working on the case of Mumbai resident Hamid Ansari, who had disappeared in Pakistan in November 2012. Shahzadi was due to appear before the Commission on Enforced Disappearances just days after she disappeared.
"I have met foreign minister Sushma Swaraj a number of times and she has assured me that all efforts were being made to secure Hamid's release as he has completed the three year jail term", she said.
"Pakistan's intelligence agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), has been known to target journalists".
She further added, "It was in Mecca when we first got in touch... seeking the God's help to find my son". 1,300 out of a total 3,000 missing people's cases remain pending before the commission.
"My sister has not committed any crime in helping an Indian national", he said.
Shahzadi's family suffered a tragedy in March 2016 when her teenaged brother, distraught over her kidnapping, hanged himself.
