In recent light of Zainab’s tragic rape and murder, the nation has plunged into a catalytic debate around the subject of sexual abuse and a matter of teaching our children to be more aware and speak out. After Zainab’s story gripped the nation and plunged it into an abyss, protests have swarmed across the country to call for change. Recently, certain footage has surfaced from Tv One’s morning show ‘Aap Ka Sahir’ that has enraged Pakistanis, calling for a ban on not just the show, but on Sahir Lodhi.
‘Aap Ka Sahir,’ has come under fire for showcasing adolescent girls dancing to a live audience
Recent footage of underage girls dancing during the show has surfaced on social media and has caused a frenzy
