Oh yes, the Sahir Lodhi is back in the news again and with the same outburst. The host-turned-actor-really-don’t-look-like-Shahrukh-Khan has just made his appearance in Pakistani movie ‘Raasta’. Now the Ramadan has begun and all the mainstream celebrities have appeared with their Ramzan Transmissions. Sahir Lodhi is the host of TV One’s Ramadan Transmission “Ishq Ramazan” and like the rest, the actor too is offering prizes and showing various ways to entertain the viewers. But life has written something else for him. Sahir Lodhi got angry again on the very first episode of his new show and lectured a lady over Quaid-e-Azam remarks.
He left no stones unturned to deliver a verbal lecture to a female guest speaker on his show. She was there to perform a speech about the oppression women face in society. So she forced everyone to think once about how woman haven’t their basic rights in this society. Women should be treated with respect and equality and in this way she placed an emotional highlighter of her poem, where she called upon Quaid-e-Azam to see how Pakistan has changed and how Pakistanis had forgot their vision of a country.
Then Sahir Lodhi got angry and asked the audience to stop clapping and laughing. Because he was ready to give everyone a very important lecture on something which didn’t happen.
“Who gave you the permission to question the services of Jinnah?” Sahir Bhai asked the girl. He later started conveying how annoyed he feels when people blame Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal for the current issues of Pakistan. He argued, “We would have not been living so freely here (in Pakistan) if he (Jinnah) hadn’t helped us.”
Although, we appreciate the fact that Sahir Lodhi addresses the issue and came in defense of the Mohammad Ali Jinnah, but everyone knows that girl said nothing wrong.
Here’s the full video of the girl’s speech and Sahir Lodhi’s ultimate lecture.
