Our chocolate hero Hamza Ali Abbasi has ruled out his presence in any of the Ramzan transmissions as the holy month has begun, with various special Ramzan shows on mainstream TV channels.
The much controversial actor, who is also highly popular on social media, in a brief Facebook status said that he will not be participating in any Ramzan transmission “because because the only reason I did Ramzan transmission before was to highlight real issues we face and to talk against oppression and injusticI I see around me (and got banned for it),” the actor added.
Hamza Abbasi also took a jibe at media for not picking up the real issues that the actor wanted to discuss in Ramzan. “It seems like our media is not ready to talk about things that I want to talk about.”
Last year, Hamza Ali Abbasi had landed himself in hot waters after calling for equal rights for the country’s minority Ahmadiyya community during his Live show on AAJ TV and was also facing death threats after questioning Pakistan’s laws regarding the community.
During his Ramadhan show on Pakistan’s AAJ TV, Hamza Ali Abbasi said “I want to say on Live TV that I will be discussing two things on the last day of Ramadhan; One will be the Ahmadi community and the other will be the Blasphemy Law.”
