Morning shows in Pakistan are churning out farcical content. Some of them are shaming women for ‘not allowing husbands to marry twice’ while others are calling dark-skinned girls ‘habshan’ and ‘negros’. Thanks to PEMRA though for finally realizing that it exists.

  •  Morning shows in Pakistan are
  •  often criticized for the absurdity of their content
  •  From live weddings to glorification of polygamy,
  •  there seems to be no end to the farcicality
  •  Beauticians are invited to these shows to
  •  ‘clean’ the brides whose skin colour is not ‘fair’
  •  In a morning show a few months ago,
  •  dark-skinned girls were referred to as ‘Negros’ and ‘habshan’
  •  In another morning show, Aamir Liaquat appeared
  •  with his second wife Tuba Aamir
  •  While answering a question, he started blasting
  •  his first wife Bushra Aamir for not allowing him
  •  to get married for the second time
  •  The host, Sanam Baloch, gladly joined him in criticisng his first wife
  •  They talked about how un-islamic it is for a wife
  •  to not let her husband marry for the second time
  •  Recently, PEMRA advised the morning shows
  •  to make their content ‘sensible’
  •  The statement observed that these shows rely
  •  primarily on subjects revolving around ‘matrimonial issues,
  •  wedding, dances, fashion, and private lives’
  •  It took PEMRA long enough to take notice
  •  of the objectionable content,
  •  but better late than never
