Who can forget Sahir Lodhi landing himself in trouble with PEMRA back in August The entire issue caught wind when the host lashed out on a young girl, Saba who had appeared on the Ramazan transmission, ‘Ishq Ramzan’ hosted by the actor.

Lodhi lost his temper live on the sets during the debate segment! Apparently, the young girl, during her speech, challenged Quaid-e-Azam, the founder of the nation.  Lodhi simply could not take it and stopped her speech on the spot to school her!

PEMRA issued a show-cause notice to Sahir Lodhi and later, the anchor had no option but to respond to all the crazy backlash. He revealed that he had apologized to the female participant in the very same show and nobody bothered to talk about it!

3) Ayesha Gulalai and Imran Khan Controversy

A social media brouhaha erupted when Pakistani Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA, Ayesha Gulalai made some scathing allegations against  PTI Chairman, Imran Khan.

Gulalai resigned from the party claiming ‘ill-treatment’ of women in the party as the reason behind her decision. What is more, she even cited that Imran Khan used to allegedly send messages of contentious nature to her.

So what actually happened, nobody really knows but the matter is still the talk of the town.

4) Khaadi Pakistan Map Controversy!

2017 was surely an unfateful year for the leading clothing brand, Khaadi. The fashion house got under fire for uncountable reasons and the spree of controversies seemed to be unstoppable.

Earlier, the brand landed itself in hot water for tampering with prices in its sale season. What was worse, it fired as many as 32 workers before Ramadan and ignited a massive social media brouhaha.

But the brand got a major major roasting for printing an incorrect map of Pakistan on one of its mug coasters.

Apparently, the designer illustrated Kashmir with India and even did a big boo-boo while drawing Gilgit-Baltistan.

Of course, the internet took notice of the error and claimed that Khaadi, being a Pakistani brand, has shamed the whole nation. Later the fashion house apologized for the for the whole chaos


5) Mahira Khan’s Leaked Images With Ranbir Kapoor

The leaked pictures of Mahira Khan spotted with Ranbir Kapoor in New York created a massive social media uproar. Trolls bashed our Pakistani sweetheart left, right and center with their aggressive moral policing!

The frenzy is attracted the most horrible reactions. The nay-sayers bullied the actress, slamming her for ‘smoking’, wearing ‘inappropriate clothes, and even being involved in a secret fling with a Bollywood big-wig.

Upon being probed about the personal photographs, the actress finally spoke up, and this is what she had to say,


6) Aamir Liaquat Quitting BOL & Getting Banned

Aamir Bhai dropped a bomb on all of us by declaring his divorce from BOL Network & ending his year-long relationship with his ex.

Apparently, his dues were not cleared by BOL and now Aamir is demanding to be paid for his services.

But what nobody saw coming was that he slandered the network’s name, claiming that he was paid to defame various personalities by the channel.

This month, Aamir Liaquat gleefully declared in a tweet that he is now the new president of Channel 24.

However, the very same day, Islamabad High Court banned him from making an appearance on T.V until further notice.

7) Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy and AKU Doctor Controversy

Perhaps, this episode was the fiercest of all. Even global media could not help adding to the heated matter where Obaid’s tweets got an AKU Doctor fired from his job.

The revered documentarian found herself in the eye of a storm when she accused a doctor employed at Agha Khan Hospital of committing “Harassment” by sending a friend request to her sister.

After the doctor lost his job and Obaid received severe criticism, she issued an apology and cleared her stance on the matter.

“My recent tweets about a doctor’s inappropriate behavior has drawn much criticism and controversy. The conversation has unfortunately steered far from the safety of women, unchecked unethical practices, and harassment. Some of the words I used in anger have disappointed people and I agree that they were poorly chosen in a time of heated emotion. My tweet about the wrong women in the wrong family was not meant to suggest a sense of privilege or power, what I meant to say was that the women in my family are strong and stand up for themselves and always have. You may disagree with the manner in which I called the doctor’s behaviour, debate the boundaries of social media with medical profession and my form and tone of expression, but ultimately, what happened was a breach of trust and severe lack of a professional code of conduct that led to a woman feeling violated or harassed. And on that, I will not stay silent”
