Twitter has been calling out journalist and news analyst Hassan Nisar for misbehaviour and unprofessional conduct against Pakistani lawyer and human rights professional Reema Omer.
The matter erupted during a live news talk show on Geo TV, where both Reema and Nisar were invited to give their opinion as news analysts, alongside other media persons such as journalist Suhail Warraich.
#Reema has been trending on Twitter, as the internet cheers on the lawyer for firmly standing up to Hassan Nisar’s rude remarks and inappropriate conduct. Twitter especially praised Reema for the commendable manner in which she retained her calm and collected demeanour, in contrast to the crass unprofessionalism of the senior journalist.
Amen to this. Men like #HassanNisar and Khalil ur rahman continue to get the platforms they do in this country and continue to use those platforms to disrespect women and perpetuate violence against them in public spaces. 1/2 https://t.co/sNIWwnwZIQ

While others called for Nisar to be taken off air for his abusive and unacceptable conduct.
His definition of cynicism is obnoxiously yelling at opponent and starting each sentence with “Oh bibi”. Any such characters who gets abusive need to be taken off air. TV channels perhaps need help by constant public scrutiny to grow a pair.#reemaomer#HassanNisar https://t.co/6JOCXsFXle
