Senior journalist Ansar Abbasi has drawn the ire of several netizens for urging Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan, Federal Minister for Information Shibli Faraz and Special Assistant to PM (SAPM) on Information Lt Gen (r) Asim Bajwa to take notice of a woman exercising on state-owned Pakistan Television (PTV) News.

As per the details, Abbasi, who is known for being critical of liberal activists, on Monday tweeted a poorly-recorded video of a TV screen that showed a woman, accompanied by a male instructor, exercising.

“Mr PM @ImranKhanPTI this is PTV. @AsimSBajwa @shiblifaraz,” the tweet read.


“If Even an exercise session and women picture on advertisement boards makes you feel amorous, you really need psychic therapy and advice….. [sic],” said former information minister and incumbent Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry while quoting the journalist’s tweet.

The federal minister was, however, not the only one who strongly reacted to the journalist’s statement.

Meanwhile, anchorperson Rabia Anum “trolled” Abbasi, which led to almost-a-spat between the two.
