First, it was Hamza Ali Abbasi and Ayesha Khan to host the Ramazan Transmission 2016 on Aaj TV titled Baran-e-Rehmat. Then the two were shifted to Aaj news being replaced by Shaista Lodhi as the new host. There has been a new change for the third time as all previous hosts have now been replaced by the veteran Pakistani actor Aijaz Aslam.
Hamza and Ayesha had been hosting ‘Ramzan Hamara Emaan’ on Aaj News, but as per recent updates, Hamza Ali Abbasi has been banned by PEMRA for highlighting issues and speaking about the unspeakable.
PEMRA, in their recent notice of barring these Ramazan transmissions, revealed that they have received 1,333 complaints of public through Whatsapp, Twitter, and telephone calls. The show has been banned over violation of the code of conduct of media regulator by “promoting controversial and sectarian views”.
The action was taken after Hamza said he would discuss minority rights of Ahmadi’s on in his last show.
Have a look at what the PEMRA notice states:

‘Ramzan Hamara Emaan’ is being hosted by Ayesha Khan now until a decision is made on whether to lift the ban off Hamza Ali Abbasi or not.
The show Baran-e-Rehmat hosted by Aijaz Aslam airs from 3 pm to 9 pm on Aaj Entertainment.
