My letter in the NewsPost today:
Sunday, March 28, 2010
Recently I watched a comedy show on a popular private TV channel which discussed the debate in the Punjab Assembly over polygamy, and then joked about the marital life of a former female minister of information. It disturbed me greatly, for even if someone is a public figure, no one has the right to ridicule their personal life or judge them on moral grounds. The said politician is a bold woman and has performed well in office. I believe in freedom of expression, but there are certain limits that the media should stick to.
