Waqar Zaka explained that if people really want to ban Nida Yasir, complain PEMRA about it instead of verbally abusing her. He also shared a short video in which he explained how Nida Yasir could be banned by the authority.
Nida recently invited the family of Marwah, a 5-year-old who was kidnapped and raped and burned to death in Karachi. Nida started questioning her family about the whole incident, about Marwah. She also stated that the possibility of any eye-witnesses coming forward also increases when the details of the incident are brought to public attention.
Owing to the extremely sensitive nature of the issue, the segments and the episode received backlash on social media for emotionally abusing the sentiments of Marwah’s family. However, upon receiving reaction, Nida replied to a few public comments on Instagram stating that such antics do not increase the TRPs of the show rather it helps them spreading awareness about such social issues.
