Heroes are those individuals who have something in them to put them out of the crowd. They owned respect and gratitude, and the nations who do not salute these superheroes rather mock them are pathetic. Unapologetically, Pakistan’s official sports channel is observed to be involved in demeaning one of the celebrities of the Pakistan Cricket team, and it is shameful. Adnan Siddiqui & Faysal Qureshi Criticize PTV Sports for Making Joke on Azam Khan’s Weight.
The state-owned channel body-shamed the cricketer in an offensive caption on social media, and keyboard warriors are ready to rip off. Several like Adnan Siddiqui and Faisal Qureshi have noticed the online ill-treatment and came to rescue the star. State-owned channel PTV Sports posted an invasive joke on social media, mocking the cricketer for his weight.
Who is Azam Khan?
Khan was part of the Pakistan cricket team who recently won against England in the first Twenty20 International at Trent Bridge. While many people took to social media to share their enthusiasm about the team’s win, but a surprising number of people mishandled their excitement and posted jokes about Khan and body-shamed him.
Unpardonably, PTV Sports posted an offensive comment about Khan on its Facebook and Instagram pages. A picture of Khan was posted on the PTV Sports timeline along with the caption
“He eats a lot but doesn’t hit much.”

The posts have since been deleted, followed by piercing feedback. Many people, including some big-name celebrities, criticized PTV Sports for the loathsome comment.
Actor and composer Haroon Shahid shared his displeasure
He posted a screenshot of the PTV Sports comment on his Instagram story and wrote.
“At first I thought this is some fake page running under the name of PTV Sports. To my surprise, it wasn’t! Is this how we are going to ridicule our players?!”
Actor Ali Ansari also rebuked the channel for the comment
Actor Adnan Siddiqui strongly criticized PTV Sports
“Absolutely disgusting and unacceptable. People at PTV Sports need immediate lessons insensitivity.”

Actor Faizan Shaikh commented on the post to protest against the comment
“Shame on you,” he wrote. “Making fun of national players! Body shaming a player who is representing your country on the highest level. No wonder your quality has gone down the drain.”
Actor Faysal Quraishi also took to the Instagram story to call out the post
“Shame on you,” he wrote.
While PTV Sports has deleted the post from their social media pages, they have yet to post an official apology for their rude comment against Khan. We strongly condemn the unkind and irresponsible attitude of PTV Sports.
