Morning show host Maya Khan: Chief of moral brigade

Wasn't it all about the ratings? It could be the only explanation of what Moral Aunty Brigade in the leadership of Mayan Khan did on the other day in a park. The entire drama was shown on a local TV channel.

Why else would Maya Khan along with two-dozen elite-class aunties consider they have the right to go public places seeking marriage certificates and explanations from couples? If you have confusion about what I am talking about, take a look at a clip from Samaa TV’s flagship show, Subha Savery Maya Kay Sath, you will get the complete picture.

Without any doubt, it was not a joke or a prank show at all. Maya Khan and her team, comprised of vigil aunties, actually ran around a park chivvying young most probably unmarried couples on live TV show.

The clip, which was broadcasted without consent of the harassed couples, is perhaps the least offensive part of this whole drama, and that's enouncing impressive. Her clowns have been met by a range of reactions, mostly negative and annoying.

The host who conceive of this idea for her morning show explained that she was doing a great service to the society. She justified her work saying “We need to make this park safe for families.” However, only the word witch-hunt comes in mind instead of safety and protection after watching the clip.

A writer even compared her vigilantism to the Lal Masjid mindset that is so widespread in Pakistan, creating a petition demanding Samaa TV to end this show immediately.

All in all, there is still one thing I could understand hitherto. What was Maya Khan trying to show to their audience? Shouldn’t students go to parks or wearing a veil (burqa) attracts unwanted attention?

What about the implication that dating is only permitted if done in private places, branded restaurants, and its okay to imagine couples in public places are wicked? Or was Maya just attempting to prove that carrying a microphone gives her a license to attack other people’s private lives.

I am a little lost here, if Maya Khan’s end objective was anything than self-promotion, she can rest assured it was accomplished.

If Maya Khan has any sense of regret, she will use the same podium she used to disgrace the common person, to apologize. People make errors, but human beings make ameliorates.

    Do I discern, in these widespread reports, the familiar strains of the Mighty Wurlitzer of Western Intelligence?

    People like Maya khan can do anything for publicity, shes one not so famous fat woman, I actually saw that episode and her arrogance for what i dont know made me laugh. Stupid woman with no sense. She should be ignored for good!

    I am sure that Maya Khan will not be ashamed of her shameful behaviour in the park.
