According to anchor Imran Riaz Khan, no one can stop him from speaking for the rights of Sindh. “no one can stop me, neither Palwasha (politician) nor Bilawal Bhutto Zardari,” the anchor alleged.

One of the users said that such anchors first beg political leaders to come to their shows and insult them to portray themselves as heroes on the screen.
Apart from political leaders, social media users seem to be angry over the case of anchor Imran Riaz Khan and PPP leader Palwasha Khan.
