It’s 2018 but the morning show craze in Pakistan continues with full force. The race of ratings compel the hosts to air the most controversial content and end up receiving backlash from the public.
Recently, Nida Yasir’s morning show ‘Good Morning Pakistan’ has become the talk of the town for inviting the cute Pathan kid ‘Ahmed Shah’ in yesterday’s episode.
We all know how the adorable boy became an instant social media sensation with his endearing videos. People fell in love with his hilarious antics and this paved a way for media to start cashing on the little child.
Nida Yasir too seized the chance and invited the young one on her show. However, the audience didn’t find her behavior appropriate with Ahmed.

Apparently, the hostess encouraged the child to exhibit anger and prompted him to misbehave on Live TV!
To Ahmed' s parents..his exploitation should be put to halt.. he's an innocent kid.. itna hi Hai to YouTube channel bana lo Apna Khuda ka.. but don't send him to these morning shows https://t.co/BDna6i9Qfs

Watch a clip from the show below.
Twitterverse was quick to notice how the poor child was triggered on television.
There's a difference in being cute and badtameez.
Why Ahmad is being promoted on national television? And why host (nida yasir, ofc) is asking him to teach other children how to show anger? So pathetic, for some TRP they can stoop to any level.

Viewers objected against the demeaning behavior children will learn from her show.
Just watched some clips of today's nida yasir's show, and it's plain stupid. Asking kids k badtameezi kar k dikhao, is bachay ki tarha gussah kar ke dikhao. The original video of the kid was cute but ab usay drag kr ke annoying bana rahay hain. Is this the content we deserve?

Nida Yasir’s show is the bench mark of how morning shows should NOT be.

Many did not find the content humorous, which was apparently the aim of the episode.
Mentally sick are the ones who saying that little kido Ahmad on Nida Yasir's show cute… There isn't any humour in video shared, Showing a child aggressive and abusive is what you guys promoting on media..??
Have some sense…
Mazaaq aur btameezi main farq karna seekhen…

It is to be noted that our media holds immense power to be agents of change. They can impact a situation positively and especially school our younger generation to behave respectfully.
