KARACHI: A journalist is never off duty and it can be a tough job at times to cover incidents or events from anywhere at anytime regarding a story. From coverage of a war to sitting at the comfort zones of a office studio conducting interviews, a reporter has to be prepared all the time.
Appearing on-air in his wedding attire, the video of a Pakistani TV reporter Hanan Bukhari of City 41 channel covered the ‘breaking news’ of marriage event.
“My family members and I are very happy today. Since, it is a love marriage, my wife and her family members are happy too. My parents present here have gone to lengths and made arrangements to make this day come true,” Bukhari said while facing the camera.The Pakistani interviewed his father, wife, mother-in-law and even his own mother.
Bukhari goes on to interview his newly married wife and asks her how does she feel about the marriage ceremony.
“Bahot acha laga mujhe, bahot acha laga mujhe aapne meri pehli khwaaish puri ki,main ummeed karti hoon aap aage bhi isi tarah saari zindagi,saari khwaaishein aap puri karenge, aap mujhe khush rakhenge (I am very happy today. You fulfilled my first wish, I hope you fulfil all my future wishes and keep me happy.),” the Bukhari’s wife replied.
However, some Twitter users were not pleased with the coverage.
“My god. What’s journalism coming to. What next? Reporters covering family circumcisions…..,” a Twitterati wrote.
“Only in Pakistan..a reporter covering his own wedding..interviews wife and father-in-law and appreciate his own wedding procession..is it ethical journalism??? #Hilarious?,” another user tweeted.
A Facebook page “People of Pakistan” uploaded complete video which is now going viral.
