Twitters on Tuesday launched a hashtag in support of mimicry artist Syed Basit Ali for refusing to join the dance during morning show of Neo News.
The incident, which led to intense quarrel between Syed Basit Ali and another guest on the show, took place when host of the programme asked Basit to why he did not join the dance. To which Basit replied that it was a vulgarity and against the norms of Pakistan that women and men dance together.
The host said that he should know “the format” of morning show where singing, games and party happened. Upon which Basit said that it was vulgarity in public and it was not the right way.
“Does our society allow to do such things?” he asked adding that he had come to attend the show to make people laugh through comedy and mimicry rather than dancing with girls.
