Twitter condemns senior journalist Hasan Nisar’s misbehavior towards Reema Omer on-air
On March 28, veteran journalis, Hasan Nisar, was a guest panelist on Geo New’s live show, ‘Report Card’ where he lost his calm when discussing the country’s democracy and began personal verbal attacks on female panelist Reema Omer.
While debating on the topic, Hasan told Reema, “Aapki samajh choti hai abhi, khulegi ahista ahista,” to which the female analyst told him she doesn’t want to become cynic like him, “Iss mulk main jo cynic nahi hai woh abnormal hai,” Nisar yelled. The host, Aleen Farooq, tried calming the veteran journalist down, but moving on he used the term ‘strip tease’ on live television to which viewers are reacting furiously, asking why PEMRA hasn’t taken notice yet.
Twitterati is lauding the legal advisor for maintaining her grace while criticizing Nisar on his poor choice of words. Senior producer, Alia Chugtai tweeted, “Why geonewsurdru has Hasan Nisar, and why he is allowed to yell at Reema Omer and Aleena Farooq? Honestly, do better. Why is he allowed to be so abusive to her?” Social activist, Nayab Jan, wrote, “Once again, ‘veterans’ in prime time tv shows demonstrating their insecurities when faced with younger, more competent women :)”
