In his message following the interview, Nasir Khan said, “Those people who would send me nasty messages, now supported me”.
He also added that it doesn’t take much to be helping and positive, in his statement he said,” it would be wonderful if we all were positive with each other like this.”
Earlier, the infamous YouTuber posted his take on the bullying he faced on the Samaa TV morning show. In his message he said “When you invite a guest on your show, please respect them.
And that’s something we totally agree with, because both in our culture and religion guests are considered god sent and are treated with utmost respect.
It has become a trend on morning shows to get TRP by doing outrageous stuff, sensationalizing things and outright bullying their guests. We hope Samaa TV morning show producers will learn from the incident.
As Nasir Khan Jan said,
“If you treat them (guest) with respect, more will happily come on your show.”
