Reportedly, Khan had contracted this virus from a visit to his dentist. According to a source close to the sportsman, he had been experiencing some pain in his tooth for which he visited a dentist in Rawalpindi.

He was sent to London for treatment and has now returned home. His fitness in the next few weeks will determine whether he will be a part of the world cup squad or will have to sit it out.

Help Me Durdana: Pakistani Stars Show Love to Yasir Hussain

help me durdana

Ever since the handsome hunk Yasir Hussain revealed his first look from his upcoming telefilm ‘Help me Durdana’, it has become the talk of the town.

Reportedly, the actor will be essaying the role of a mother and critics are applauding him for choosing an unconventional character.

However, things went south after Yasir replied to a hater with an insensitive comment.

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED

The ‘Karachi Se Lahore’ actor faced the heat when one of his followers pointed out why the project did not showcase a real transgender to which he replied:

Later, the actor took to his Instagram account to give clarification and stated that his role has nothing to do with humiliating or mocking anyone.

Have a look at his post below!

View this post on Instagram

I just wanted to clear the misconceptions that some people have about my recent role. The images that you have seen over social media of me wearing a Saree are for a project in which I am playing the role of my mother. I am not playing the role of a transgender and by no means do I ever want to disrespect a gender that I have immense regard for. Once the show is out you will be able to understand the character better and will know that my role has nothing to do with humiliating or mocking anyone. We as public figures receive a lot of retaliation/negative comments and just because I chose to reply to a comment with a joke does not in any way mean that I have no respect for a certain gender. Other negative comments that we receive are never made a controversy out of so this also shouldn’t be. It is just a character intended for humour and nothing else. Hope this clears the doubts that some people have. #yasirhussain #durdana #respectforallgenders

A post shared by Yasir Hussain (@yasir.hussain131) on

Yasir’s rumored girlfriend, Iqra Aziz defended the actor and gave an aggressive reply to all the haters.

Later, Muneeb Butt too came forward and defended Yasir.

There were also a number of celebrities who supported the actor and sent their best wishes for the new avatar.

Karachi Weather Update: Heatwave Notification Issued by PMD

0
karachi heatwave

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has warned Pakistanis of a possible heatwave which could hit the country from 1st May. Reportedly, several parts of the country will experience the wave over a course of 2 months.

Furthermore, the officials have shared that there is a formation of a tropical cyclone and other expected weather conditions which can lead to the suspension of wind-flow, causing extreme temperatures from May to June.

On Saturday, the department issued a notification for the citizens in which they’ve shared that the temperature during the 3-day heatwave will be on peak and that Karachiites will experience at least 40-42 degrees outside.

6 Simple Steps to Avoid Heatstroke in Heatwave

Chances of the heatwave are highest during May-June -Karachi Chief Meteorologist Abdul Rasheed

In winter, the Sun covers the Earth from the south and is not exactly perpendicular to the surface. In June, the Sun is directly on top of the surface of the Earth, leading to extremely hot afternoons and longer periods of the day at peak temperature. Instead of getting cool winds from the sea, the country gets warm winds from the east and northwest, increasing humidity to the point that 40 degrees Celsius feels it is five degrees higher. -Rasheed Added

The 2015 heatwave was a traumatic event for the entire country as hundreds of individuals lost their lives. Following the incident, PMD has established a dedicated cell to monitor abnormal weather conditions in summer and alert relevant departments of the heatwave to at least 03 days prior to the actual spell.

After the 2015 heatwave, we learned an important lesson on the value of weather monitoring plans. The crisis prompted all relevant institutions to enhance coordination and prepare for extreme weather accordingly. -Rashid

Moreover, speaking with Geo about the year-old controversy that began in Lux Style Awards 2018, Zafar broke down into tears:

Watch his video here.

On Monday morning, the singer appeared on ARY News’s talk show Bakhabar Savera. The couple shared how the whole year was tormenting for the entire family.

Ayesha Fazli stated how their son witnessed the whole matter

“I am also a woman and of course, it has been a difficult time for the entire family. My son is nine years old now. He was eight years old then. And he used to see people coming as if someone has died in our home. Obviously, he was a witness to all of it.

He used to ask me who is Meesha Shafi? So I had to eventually sit him down and explain to him about the accusation against his father”

US Visa for Pakistanis: Foreign Office Issues Clarification Over Sanction Rumors!

0
US Visa

The United States of American has placed Pakistan in the list of countries facing sanctions within the framework of the law. This came after Islamabad refused to take-in the deported Pakistani citizens and visa over-stayers from America.

The State Department on Friday announced that the consular operations in Pakistan will remain unchanged as of now, however, it might become even more difficult for the citizens to attain a US visa, according to Khaleej Times.

Including Pakistan, there are a number of 10 countries on which the Trump administration has slapped the visa sanctions. Along with Pakistan, Ghana was also added to the list in 2019.

UAE Visa Requirements for Pakistan: Smart CNIC now a Must

Other countries with the sanction are:

  1. Guyana (2001)
  2. Gambia (2016)
  3. Cambodia (2017)
  4. Guinea (2017)
  5. Serria Leone (2017)
  6. Eritrea (2017)
  7. Burma (2018)
  8. Loas (2018)

Under section 243 (d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, the Secretary of State is required to discontinue granting immigration or non-immigrant visas to a nation upon receiving notice from the Homeland Security Secretary that the country has denied or is unreasonably delaying accepting a citizen, subject, national or resident of that country.
The State Department tried to downplay the impact of the sanctions on Pakistan.

“Consular operations in Pakistan remain unchanged,” State Department Spokesperson told PTI when asked about the federal register notification.

This is a bilateral issue of ongoing discussion between the US and Pakistani governments and we are not going to get into the specifics at this time -Spokesperson added

Former Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US, Hussain Haqqani, feels that this will make things difficult for Pakistani citizens.

This measure will create hardship for Pakistanis who want or need to travel to the US and could have been avoided if Pakistani authorities had not ignored American requests to respect their legal requirements for deportation -Haqqani told PTI, days after the federal register notification

He added that Pakistan’s refusal to accept it’s citizen deported from the US is not something new.

Pakistan’s refusal to accept every Pakistani citizen deported from the US is not new. It seems that the US is no longer willing to overlook a wide range of official Pakistani behavior. Bonhomie has been replaced by sanctions and restrictions based on Islamabad’s policy decisions -Haqqani said

Reportedly, since 1996, only 318 visa applicants have been affected by this law, according to the federal register notification. The notification also explains that during the same period, millions of applicants from the affected countries had received non-immigrant visas.

Furthermore, it adds that there is no ‘fixed’ formula and that the State Department has never issued a blanket refusal for visas from countries present on the visa sanction list.

Foreign Office Clarifies Reports about US Visa Sanction on Pakistan

On the other hand, the Foreign Office (FO) has termed the situation as misleading and has claimed that the media reports are also not true.

On Sunday, the FO claimed that there are ongoing issues between both the countries on consular matters including repatriation issues.

As of now, both the US and Pakistan are working bilaterally on resolving the issues consistently with their respected laws and have made considerable progress.
