Pakistani TV host Nida Yasir has issued an apology on her Instagram offering an explanation on the matter that is trending on social media with hashtag #BanNidaYasirShow.
According to the TV host, the TV host did not invite the family of the Marwah, five year old girl who was raped and murderd. In fact, the victim’s parents were actually the one seeking media assistance and Nida Yasir changed her show’s schedule as she considered it her duty to help them by bringing them on air.
She highlighted how the parents of Marwah have been helped financially after coming on the show as the father was unable to work or provide food to the family since the ordeal. Nida Yasir even claimed that it was because of the show that the rapist of the little girl was caught.
However, some people have highlighted the fact that bringing them on the show to help did not mean that she should have asked them such insensitive questions.
