ARY journalist gets called out for asking unethical questions from Sahiwal victim
ARY journalist Arif Bhatti got called out on Twitter and other social media platforms after he asked unethical questions from a victim of the Sahiwal massacre.
I don’t even consider Arif Bhatti a decent human being, let alone a journalist. Asking these dumb and insensitive questions. The child has witnessed the murder of her parents and sibling! All this for the sake of ratings. No wonder journalism in Pakistan is at its lowest ebb… pic.twitter.com/0NjDNdX6gt

Arif Bhatti was interviewing the child of the man who was alleged shot in cold blood by CTD officials a couple of days ago.
“Beta, abu milay ap se aj? Kahan gaye abu ap ke?” (Child, did your father meet you today? Where has he gone?)
To which she replied replied:-
“Aj nahi milay abu. Vo foth hogaye,” she replied. (He did not meet me today, he has passed away).
The video clip started doing the rounds on social media. Twitterati called out Arif Bhatti’s unprofessional and insensitive questioning of the child who had undergone the trauma of losing his parents in the Sahiwal shootout.
He really should be kicked …. I mean … and what is @ARYNEWSOFFICIAL going to do about this ????

This man should be banned from all public platforms. If he was so keen on his job he should have gone to a pshycologist. Reams of information about child trauma AND effects of questioning a child on his trauma. Shame shame shame.

This was too brutal to watch. The point behind making the child to relive the whole episode is…. incomprehensible.
Whatever happened to the humanity!!!

Surprised if you are saying that arif bhatti is a decent human being. At least after watching this your views should be changed now.
