Nasir Khan Jan has made his presence felt on the social media sphere which his self-deprecating humour. His videos, hated by some and enjoyed by many, proved to be a source of continuous entertainment.
Recently, Khan was invited at a morning show ”Naya Din” at Samaa TV. Nasir Khan Jan shared a video of ‘rehearsal segment’ at his YouTube channel which seemed pretty pleasant. Alternatively, what went on-air disturbed many.
The host of the show Muhammad Shuaeb constantly attacked Nasir Khan Jan, calling him ‘vulgar’. Moreover, it should be noted that his co-host Kiran Aftab can be seen smirking at his disrespectful behaviour towards the guests.
Moreover, the host is seen repeatedly interrupting him, asking him to ‘calm down’ whenever he tried to explain himself. Watch the video clip:
Watched Nasir Khan Jan in SAMAA's morning show, very disgusting behavior by the host, fake TRP game. I don't know what situation was the host going through but If you can't give anybody respect, don't call them on your shows.#nasirkhanjan #SamaaTV #FaislaAapKa #RamadanMubarak pic.twitter.com/AioamErG1i

Throughout the interview, despite being insulted, Nasir kept his cool which deserves all the appreciation. Above all, the host called Khan ‘vulgar’ for his shirtless video, although shoots showing off naked bodies is not a new sight in our entertainment industry.
Without a doubt, everyone has the choice to approve or discard the content he produces. But inviting someone over to the show only to disrespect is absolutely shameful.
Twitter community extends support to Nasir Khan Jan:
Social media community has extended full support to Khan, calling the hosts out for their problematic behaviour. Subsequently, it cannot be undone, but the show anchors do owe him an apology.
Petition to remove anchor Muhammad Shuaeb from Samaa for bullying #NasirKhanJan on national TV.

In solidarity with #NasirKhanJan. First they insulted Qandeel Baloch with their TV shows and now Nasir Khan Jan. Why these urban Paratha guys have so much complex that they insult everyone with free hand. @reportpemra should Ban such talk shows that are tend to insult people.

Whatever you say about #NasirKhanJan and his videos, the anchor had no right to ridicule him like that. Indecency must be restricted. Hats off to nasir who met the foray of disrespectful statements with vigour and resilience

@SAMAATV your anchors on air bullied #NasirKhanJan. Such an unethical way to open up a topic to a person who is a guest at your show. Who and whatever he is, is probably none of your concern. Also, whatever your anchors said is not acceptable in any possible way.

Anchor sahab!! ain’t it’s stupidity that calling your guest #nasirkhanjan and then give him lectures on ethics nd telling him that m sensible nd I can’t make such videos! How rubbish you were talking… you showed your own ‘AUQAT’ instead of NASIR KHAN JAN.

You guys should be ashamed for airing this segment and to be honest if you had any humanity and senses left in you, you should have banned this idiot host.#nasirkhanjan

Khan thanks people for support:
After the social media outcry, Nasir Khan thanked the people in a video message for support and requests the hosts to be respectful towards guests. He said in the video message:
“I am filled with gratitude because of the positive response and I really hope that in the future I get the same positivity. It is my job to entertain you all and I will keep doing that to spread the positivity.”
Above all, he is of view that if hosts are more respectful towards guests, they will more happily be on the show.
“When you invite a guest on your show, please respect them. If you treat them with respect, more will happily come on your show. I wasn’t aware of the questions I would be asked and what would happen on [Naya Din].”
Additionally, he said that when they are invited to a show, they expect respect. Contrary to it, he had to face disrespect and disregard. Last but not the least, display of ethical behaviour should be a priority.
