Pakistani woman journalist slaps boy while speaking on camera, video goes viral
A video that has gone viral on social media shows a Pakistani female journalist slapping a boy for heckling her on camera. She claimed to be reporting on the recent holiday of Eid al-Adha, which was observed on Sunday, July 9. Over 4,00,000 people have watched the video that was tweeted.
The journalist in the video was presenting a piece to the camera when she became enraged by anything the boy standing next to her said or did. Initially, it was unknown why she was so enraged, but as soon as she was done reporting, she slapped the heckler. It is believed that the youngster said something uncalled for that caused the reporter to lose her composure.
After the video went viral and some people criticised the reporter for her act, Maira Hashmi issued a statement on Twitter (Originally written in Urdu), saying, “This guy was harassing the family during the interview, ” which made the family upset. Didn’t give it another chance to be tolerated?”
