TV present host Rabia Anum Obaid’s Tuesday walkout from Nida Yasir’s morning present has cut up the web and celebrities alike. Her choice to exit because of the presence of Mohsin Abbas Haider, an actor who has been accused of abusing his former spouse, was harshly criticised by actor Mishi Khan and defended by fellow actor Mira Sethi.
She took to Twitter and instructed the Aroosa star that “it’s called a protest” and what Obaid did was not in dangerous style.
On Thursday, Sethi tweeted in response to Khan, “What Rabia Anum did was not in ‘bad taste.’ She excused herself from a live show, and refused to share space with a man accused of domestic violence. It’s called protest. And it’s far more powerful than quietly slinking away from the makeup room.”
Khan had known as Obaid’s transfer “cringe”. She stated whereas it’s nice to face up for one thing one believes in, the best way TV present host exited was “not the way to embarrass and humiliate people in a live show.”
“You had ample time to walk out before going live rather this awful move,” she wrote. Shortly after Sethi criticised Khan, the veteran star took to Instagram and stated, “Thank you Mira Sethi for your response. I really respect your opinion but I [will] stick to mine that it was in bad taste. You know if someone like that [Haider] has come on a show, someone who you’ve stood up against, you can walk out before and it’s still called a protest.”
Khan added that if an individual needs to protest stay on a present then they need to do the identical for different individuals as nicely. “She maintained her silence during Feroze Khan’s time, no tweet, no protest, why? Because she knows him very well or follows him and unfollowed him after people made a lot of noise. This is being very hypocritical that you stand up for someone you barely know and maintain silence for someone you know,” stated the 51-year-old actor.
She added that if Obaid needs to face up for a trigger, be it home violence or anything, then she should name out or maybe even protest towards everybody who has accomplished one thing flawed. “You cannot humiliate just one person,” she reiterated.
Throughout a stay telecast of Good Morning Pakistan, Obaid had stated, “There are some mistakes that never leave us, and today I’m not going to make that mistake. There’s an issue I’ve taken a stand for which is domestic abuse and I feel like if this minute effort of mine tomorrow saves my daughter or even my friends, then I have to do it.”
The TV present host stated she didn’t wish to be part of the present. “I know how responsible you [Nida] are and I love you for that, but I think If today I sit through the entire show, I will not be able to face my friends, my colleagues and all of those girls for whom I might have to take a stand for in the future, for whom I’ve already raised my voice. So, to take care of that I will not be a part of this show, I’m sorry,” Obaid stated.
After strolling off the present, she known as it her “tiny bit to break the cycle of ifs and buts” in hope that “harassers and wife beaters” are by no means given the prospect to be heroes once more, somebody who by no means apologised for what they did whereas the sufferer is “still struggling mentally, physically and financially” to get again on their ft.“
