Twitter alert: Sana Bucha resigns?

Twitter was abuzz on Sunday due to rumors of major shifts in the media world – the alleged resignation of Pakistani TV anchor and columnist Nasim Zehra from Dunya TV, and the resignation of TV anchor Sana Bucha from Geo.

While Bucha’s resignation dominated trends in Pakistan for her resignation and refusal to do her show, purportedly in protest of Geo’s rehiring of Dr Aamir Liaquat (read: Delusion, denial and ‘Dr’ Liaquat), Zehra’s resignation rumor focused on her exit as a protest against the recently staged show featuring Malik Riaz, Mubasher Lucman and Mehar Bukhari. TV anchor Maria Memon tweeted that she filled in for Sana Bucha on June 30, adding weight to the rumour.

While many took the time to laud Bucha for a principled stand, many others questioned whether both resignations were just temporary stunts.

If sana bucha has truly resigned because of aamir liaqat's rehiring, big move from the lady in an atmosphere of gutter tv. Well done.


Sana Bucha resigned. That too because of Aamir Liaquat. Something just isn't right about this.


Sana Bucha's resignation is a novel act. Standing up against hypocrisy & bigotry are indeed, acts of bravery. Well done #Geo #Bucha

Baseer Agha | 11 years ago | Reply Modernization and Westernization are two different things, Islam is the World most modern religion, what is the trend in Pakistan, is they think being a Modern if they are westernized. Any how Good Stand for SanaBucha
