Shahzeb Khanzada is one of Pakistan’s most prominent journalists in Pakistan and has managed to woo the audience with his progressive outlook. Calling out people for their misogynist views to pushing the authorities to not push crucial problems under the rug – you name it and the man has done it.
In a short span, Shahzeb has made his mark on Pakistani TV as one of the few voices that don’t shy away from calling people out on their BS
Previously, it was Mustafa Kamal’s sexist remarks on his show which earned him a lecture in not indulging in casual sexism

This time around, he called out General(R) Musharraf for his sexist remarks while referring to PPP chairman Bilawal Zardari
Shahzeb Khanzada was quick to pick up on these remarks and corrected Mr. Musharraf for demeaning women
Gender is nt something to b proud of,nor it is somthng to b ashamed of. Ppl like Musharaf who try to use it fr thr advantage n to ridicule othrs must b ashamed of thr behaviour.
Pakistan is thankful to great women like Fatima Jinnah,Benazir,Malala etc.

No wonder the journalist is making waves. It takes a lot of guts to be a face of the mainstream media and correct the stances of those who amass power
His blatant refusal to accept misogynist views and casual sexism is making him a favourite among the audiences and more and more people return to watch his show and listen to his perspective on the current affairs.
The country has produced strong, independent and powerful women, who have led progressive movements and pushed the country to a new dimension of development. This means that being a woman should not be an insult, and those wanting to lead us must not hold such orthodox thoughts.
Once again, Pakistanis are applauding Shahzeb’s efforts to teach our politicians basic decency, the need to view both genders as equal, and to not refer to one gender as an insult
History is being made, and Pakistan's mainstream media is retaliating linguistic mesogyny on prime. Thank you @shazbkhanzdaGEO for so effectively responding to a bully. And for representing us. Yes we're women and yes we speak like women. Get a life Mr Musharraf. pic.twitter.com/jmeC0cLCYl

Agree with @shazbkhanzdaGEO entirely.I served with Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto directly under her command.I was by her side through the turbulent politics of the 80s & 90s.She never wavered where I know men would have shivered.Her courage and intellect would put men to shame

“It is not women that are weak, it is the men that use the word عورت as a synonym for weakness, that are weak themselves”.
Brilliant work today by @shazbkhanzdaGEO to claim the word عورت and deny misogynists like Pervez Musharraf the permission to use it as a pejorative.

.@shazbkhanzdaGEO teaches @P_Musharraf an important lesson. Women are equal to men in everyway. They are as weak as a human can be and as powerful as humanly possible. It is dedication, committment & ambition which makes any person standout not genderhttps://t.co/SVnGUdIBCZ

Thank you, Shahzeb Khanzada for using your position to constantly reinforce this important message. Often, due to larger chain of events, people tend to overlook the problems that plague the society on a minute to minute basis and holds individuals back. More power to you.
