Ramzan Mubarak, fellas! If you’ve been following the news closely, chances are that you might have heard the CJ wanting things to run a bit differently in the name of entertainment this year. Hint: all absurdities (read: game shows/talk shows) banned this year and we couldn’t pretend to be upset about this even if we tried. Making uncultured remarks, personal comments, and inappropriate humour all in the name of Ramzan? So, we’ve listed some moments that majorly pissed us off about these Ramzan-special transmissions and game shows!
P.s: Praise the Lord for ‘em not comin’ back!

CAKED & BAKED

We love our industry; don’t get us wrong, but, really? There’s something so off-putting about actresses/anchors hosting Ramzan shows caked with 5 lbs of Huda Beauty foundation and wearing joras fit to be another’s Valima attire. Stop. Please.

WHAT, ARE YOU A SCHOLAR TOO?

You study chemistry to be chemist, and Medicine to be a doctor. Similarly, one must receive *formal* religious education before appearing on national TV and passing fatwas. Simply being a Muslim alone does not give you that prestige.

FREELOADERS

Guys, whatever happened to dignity and grace and empowerment? It simply makes us sad to see dozens of people dancing foolishly or performing ridiculous tasks just for the sake of winning ‘Unique ki Motorbike’. Our people need to know that it’s downright insulting for themselves to be shamelessly asking/begging/pleading for free stuff.

LIVING ON FOOL’S EDGE

And who can forget that infamous incident when this particular anchor asked a blindfolded woman to hold a snake in her hands and run towards an unsuspecting crowd – all in the name of special Ramzan transmission, my God! That is one show we will definitely not miss watching.

POMP & SHOW

Whatever happened to performing a good deed and not making a big show out of it? We truly respect people with the will to help the needy but showing themselves on national television, taking photos and giving interviews – that’s a massive pet peeve (in the name of charity) in our humble opinion.

PAKISTANI SHAHRUKH KHAN

On the very first episode of Ishq Ramzan, Sahir Lodhi lost his cool, because he can overreact and we can’t! After all, he is the self-proclaimed Paksitani Shahrukh Khan.
