Geo Entertainment’s morning show Utho Jago Pakistan host Shaista Wahidi has left the country after ARY anchor Mubashir Luqman accused the show of airing blasphemous content, a private news channel reported.
As per the details Lodhi left for Qatar around two days ago via Gulf Airways wearing an abaya to hide her identity.
Earlier, reports about Lodhi considering to flee the country were doing rounds as the public outcry against the issue escalated the matter to new height. Although Shaista Wahidi made a public apology, stating any offence was inadvertent and unintentional, within hours of Mubasher Lucman’s television show which propelled the issue in to the limelight; the channel and the show host have been facing media’s wrath. The wedding video controversy has done a serious damage to Lodhi’s reputation and several cases have been registered against her in different courts of the country. She was expected to appear before the court to face the allegations but now it has been confirmed that she has fled from the country.
It was also reported that Veena Malik and Asad Bashir Khattak have also left the country.
Since all the accused are not present in the country we cannot say how the things will take a turn – for now the controversy has become talk of the town and everyone including politicians, media person and government are playing with the issue.
