Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, observed by Muslims worldwide. Every Ramzan, most Pakistani celebrities hop on the bandwagon of hosting Ramzan transmissions.
The holy month caters as a source of ablution, prayer, and discipline. However, for many, it’s a month to cash in on. Nonetheless, millions of rupees are earned with the transmissions.
Recently, Waqar Zaka exposed the hypocrisy of Pakistani showbiz.
Pakistani television personalities while failing to carry the values preached by Islam through the year, pretend to gain respect and money in Ramadan. Waqar Zaka targeted the hypocrites who fake religion every Ramadan in his video.
Watch the video below:
Recently, actress Ushna Shah also posted a rant on how hypocritical Pakistani showbiz is.
“I have zero respect for the veil [donning] Virgin Marys who make millions off [Ramazan] transmission by preaching the word of God on Iftar shows and become tutti fruitties a month later.”
It’s surprising how so many Pakistani TV personalities fall victims at the hands of money so easily. Hopefully, in the years to come people will focus more on the piety rather than the money.
Take a look at Ushna Shah’s complete statement below:
Shah’s open letter was well-received by some of her peers in showbiz.
Writer/actor Osman Khalid Butt commented,
“Ushna for President! Lao you, you straight-talking BS-repellant Barbarella!”
While photographer Zara Tareen said,
“I will finally allow my mother to call you her daughter without any hesitation.”
Actor Ayaz Samoo and model Rabia Butt also wrote words of appreciation.
