Time Out With Ahsan Khan segment banned for mistreatment of animals as props
Time Out With Ahsan Khan segment has been banned and the government has fined the channel Rs500,000.
Pemra has banned the segment of widely acknowledged controversial show Time Out with Ahsan Khan for using animals as props to induce an atmosphere of entertainment leading to the surfacing of massive views.
Time Out with Ahsan Khan is as the name suggests hosted by Pakistani film and television actor, producer, host, and performer Ahsan Khan who has a massive fan following and is considered a crucial member of the Pakistani showbiz industry.
Ahsan Khan is the most recognized for a chart-topping mega-hit Pakistani serial Udaari in which Ahsan portrayed excellent acting skills in a negative role.
The Pakistani public was shaken by Ahsan Khan’s on-the-point depiction of the most stone-hearted villain.
This time Ahsan is gathering fame through his controversy-attracting show Time Out With Ahsan Khan. This show is very popular in Pakistan due to the portrayal of ‘just the type of content’ people very much wish to see.
In this show, animals are used as props which also leads to them being mistreated.
Many actors who attended the show can be seen with animals sitting on their laps and this might not be consensual as some celebrities don’t approve of this act, many are scared of animals as well.
However, they have to go along with the show’s basic casualties to garner high views.
Using animals for targeted advantages is however not acceptable and the Punjab government took the much-needed decision by imposing a fine on the channel accountable for the show.
Pemra has banned the specific segment and the Punjab government has fined the accountable channel with Rs5 lacs.
The spokesperson of the Punjab government tweeted that this is the “landmark decision” on animal rights.
The government spokesperson declared that by imposing this fine these vile acts in the future can most probably be prevented by all channels as this kind of treatment of animals is not acceptable and allowed at any cost.
