[VIDEO] How Nida Yasir treated Marwa’s parents is problematic, insensitive and highly inappropriate!
The case caught the media's attention and was being discussed on mainstream media for days leading to nationwide outrage.
The race for ratings compels the Morning show hosts to air controversial content that ends up generating a backlash from the public.
A few days ago, a five-year-old girl, Marwah, the resident of Essa Nagri in Karachi, was found dead in a garbage heap by locals. Her body was discovered inside a gunny bag. She was raped and physically assaulted before being murdered brutally.
The case caught the media’s attention and was being discussed on mainstream media for days leading to nationwide outrage.
Following this, The Morning Show host, Nida Yasir, invited Marwah’s parents and their family members for a whole episode on Good Morning Pakistan last week. Just like everyone else, the host knew what the five-year-old went through, but Nida made the victim’s parents revisit the agony, pain, and distress as she kept asking to ‘tell and narrate the incident again’ for the viewers.
There are insensitive people and then you have #NidaYasir. Couple of days ago, Marwah, a five-year old girl and resident of Essa Nagri in Karachi was found dead from a garbage heap by locals. Her body was discovered inside a gunny bag. She was raped, assaulted before being murdered brutally. The case, just like Zainab, caught media frenzy and was being discussed on social and mainstream media for days leading to nationwide outrage and cry.But Nida, as usual, did the same. She went on to invite her parents and family members for a whole episode on Good Morning Pakistan last week. She, just like others, knew what Marwah went through but no, she went on further to make the parents revisit the agony, pain and distress as she kept asking to 'tell again and narrate the incident again' for the viewers.PEMRA, is on a banning spree these days, as we do read about how TV dramas are stopped from being aired because of containing content that is unethical and against social values. What about this kind of stuff? This is insensitivity and shallowness at its peak. Inviting the family members (especially parents) of a minor who was raped and thrown into garbage on a live show and questioning them about what/how/why is just absolutely devastating. Where is PEMRA now? Shukar hai #MotorwayIncident waali victim anonymity main hai warna yeh unko bi bulaaleti. What are your thoughts on this? #JusticeForMarwah. #Pakistan. #GoodMorningPakistan. #TuesdayThoughts.

After watching the episode, social media users have been calling PEMRA to ban such shows from being aired because of its insensitive content. People believe inviting the victim’s parents and family members and then questioning them about what? How? Why? is inconsiderate and thoughtless.
