Why firing Maya Khan is not the solution

Published: January 31, 2012

In a way, Maya Khan was just plain unlucky– the offensive clip of her show went viral and within a day, she became the talk of the town. PHOTO: PUBLICITY

The protest has borne fruit: Maya Khan has been fired and her show has been taken off air. One more host of Samaa TV has been shown the door, after a clamour of complaints following the fateful episode of her morning show.

This is the moment of vindication for the online community of journalists, bloggers and ordinary citizens who were incensed (and rightfully so) after watching Maya and her coterie of minions prey on couples dating in a public park.

But lest these critics lapse into complacency over an accomplished mission, they must know that there’s more to the story. There’s a deeper trouble with afflicts our ‘free’ media and it certainly cannot be done away with by simply by purging journalists and talk show hosts at the behest of an occasional uproar.

In a way, Maya Khan was just plain unlucky– the offensive clip of her show went viral and within a day, she became the talk of the town. But think about it: how many of those who wrote op-eds and blogs criticising the show actually watched it on a regular basis? I, for one, was thoroughly offended after watching the clip, but didn’t even know that Maya Khan existed before that day.

There are numerous television channels airing morning shows and prime time programs, hosted by journalists and anchors. Are we really able to effectively keep tabs on the violation of ethical norms in our ever burgeoning media industry? Not really.

Quite like Maya Khan, many TV personalities, are involved in moral policing and passing self-righteous judgments on others. Driven by the rat race for higher ratings in an increasingly competitive media market, these people consider impartiality and ethical considerations nothing but a fig.

Switch on your TV, and you’ll see a group of sanctimonious interrogators and preachers openly condemning ‘moral outcasts’ of society. If we are to judge the situation by these shows, this category comprises a rather wide spectrum of people, ranging from actual criminals to alleged blasphemers and even youngsters who date.

Such is that state of affairs of the Pakistani media. Sadly, firing Maya Khan and her team is hardly going to end this tendency of flagrantly violating ethical considerations. In fact, by firing Maya, Samaa TV has sought a quick fix and tried to absolve itself of involvement.

Previous episodes of the same show, featuring Maya’s ridiculous chaapey, were also very, if not equally, offensive. And the channel was fully cognizant of the contents of these episodes. But no action was taken then.

As I write this piece, I can’t help thinking about other equally questionable shows anchored by ‘journalists’ on the same channel. Take the example of Jasmine Manzoor from Tonight with Jasmine, who periodically interviews prisoners complicit in shocking crimes. She thrusts the mic in their faces, questions them insolently and then shames them with her moralistic rants.

 

Through TV personalities like Maya Khan and the like, the ‘moral outcasts’  get vicariously lambasted and loathed by the masses— who are often quick to point accusing fingers without full awareness of facts and alternative viewpoints. Thus, in this growing genre of trash TV, the public assumes the role of the jury. And in the judge’s seat, sits the holier-than-thou journalist or anchor.

Unfortunately, the spate of articles criticising Maya Khan, articulate and cogent as many of them might have been, failed to relate the talk show to the wider issue with the media industry. Fixated on Maya Khan’s terrible idea to hound young couples, many of these writings did not quite go beyond criticism of moral policing.

But the subject begs deeper scrutiny. Did people really think that Maya Khan was unaware that she was being highly unprincipled? In my humble opinion, she knew exactly what she was doing and the program is hardly reflective of her own true worldview. One look at a video of her dancing feverishly and her pictures in western attire—featured in a news segment of an entertainment channel—will show you this discrepancy. And this hypocrisy has a deeper cause: financial motives spurred by the ratings game.

Moral policing sells. Many TV personalities have long abandoned standards of impartiality and they try to be the voice of the awaam, which is often unreasonable and rancorous. Instead of making an effort to open people’s minds, they simply perpetuate prejudices and dogmas.

Until there is a neutral body established to regulate our media, financial considerations will continue to trump ethical ones. It’s about time the watchmen of our society are also watched.

Do you think TV journalists have the right to ask interviewees personal questions?

    I agree firing her isnt the solution. She should be charged in criminal court for whatever laws she has breached. An example should be made for all to see. Even after she was fired on national TV she clearly showed her naiveness on the issue and refused to dish our a decent apology. All she kept on repeating is that she didnt meant to offend anyone. It could have easily been avoided if she descended from her high mantle place and said ”I am sorry for all the trouble and distress i have caused to the people involved. My program in hindsight was in bad taste. I understand how i have transgressed and understand the ramifications, furthermore i would like to offer my resignation as a gesture to all those who were affected and the public whose sentiments i have disturbed.”. Maya Khan did the same thing some burka clad women in Islamabad were doing, Why were we against those women? As a nation we have so many double standards …Recommend

    Not a great argument.

    It’s true, that TV anchors and guests often pass sanctimonious remarks, but Maya Khan practically made a show out of it. I don’t think reprimanding a man for grave robbery, which is an actual crime, is as bad as lambasting him for talking to a girl in a parkRecommend

  • Uza Syed

    It is not just one Maya Khan, this channel SAMAA TV seems to have a history of irresponsibility. Have we all forgotten what Mehar Bokhari did to Shaheed Governor Salaman Taseer in an interview just a few days before his cold blooded murder? The interview is still available on the YouTub etc. and a living proof of what SAMAA allows its anchors to do in the name of “free” and “independent” media. Recommend

  • Shahryar Ahmed

    Agree with the writer 200%. This should not stop with Maya Khan, it is time that we the people should stop these talk show hosts & anchors to watch what they say & ask & the way they present.

    All these TV personalities, even the so called senior TV & Talk Show Hosts should be brought down to earth. Recommend

    Spot on Ms Maria. One really cannot understand how such such an important and immensely influential organ of the state continues to run without ANY rules and regulations whatsoever.

    There is no such thing as media ethics. As you’ve mentioned in your article and you’re more than one hundred percent correct that all these programs are produced purely keeping the financial perspective in mind. If this continues the media will become a very big mafia. You will be surprised to know how much tax is still unpaid by these beast-like media houses, not all, but some very big fish!

    The ratings rat race is a very dangerous tool for competition. We must raise our voice and stop the media from becoming a holy cow itself while blaming others blatantly. The likes of Kamran Khan need to be dealt with.

    Furthermore we also don’t realize how dramatized programs which deal with Criminal Cases adversely affect the largely illiterate people of our country. Instead of creating awareness they just give birth to more crimies.

    In an already depleted Pakistani society, as regards to character, such media coverage only adds fuel to the fire!Recommend

    Interesting insight. We have to understand that for once in our nation’s history we have multiple institutions facing unhindered growth at the same time, be it civil-military relations, judiciary, or media; and interestingly a lot of it is being driven by the ‘savior’ attitude which has an innate holier-than-thou mindset built into it. Most likely this will continue for some time before these institutions evolve into a more mature state.Recommend

    I may be wrong but this all happpened due to the unnecessary competion to look good or to be rated high as an anchor or the show be rated the best. We at times cross all the limits just in the sheer competion and that applies in almost every field in our country. Healthy competion is very good but its reverse side is much more dangerous. If you look at the calibre of are morning shows or so called the talk shows the anchor persons most of the time cross the limits of decency.Recommend

    i want some answers from all of you who read this, please.
    just forget about Maya Khan, tell me whatever the unmarried couples did was right or wrong?
    Does our religion and culture allows such kind of interactions between male and female who are not married?
    just imagine if you have sister, you think she is in school but in reality she is with a boy in park or somewhere else, will you allow her to continue that activity.?Recommend

  • Err

    Err Hello? There is a difference between lecturing a juvenile and ambushing an unsuspecting couple in a park! The former have been judged and condemned in the eyes of the law!!! What is your point that we are a unitary anarchist society where everyone like a robot should mind their own business and lower their gaze because God forbid they say something moralistic they will be beaten on the head with the privacy/human rights stick?
    I have seen Jasmine’s show, and she handles the juveniles really well. She gives the kids ample of chance to explain why they got trapped into a life of crime and then in a maternal way lectures and encourages them to get their life together. She is not doing such shows for the ratings but infact highlights the plight of such kids and informs the public. I for one had no idea our jails were crowded with such young kids, who alot of times tend to be repeat offenders because of their hardened background. If anything her show is a break from all the dumb drawing room political talk shows that litter my tv.
    The thing is internet activism is a double edged sword, you can became a savior/activist by just writing an op-ed. Just because of maya khan’s dumb antics don’t paint everyone with the same brush.Recommend

  • Ahmed

    I don’t think she was fully cognizant of the fact that what she was doing was wrong. Her apology videos make it quite clear that Maya suffers from the same contradictory moral standards that most of our society suffers from – where you actually follow two contradictory sets of norms without being completely aware of it. Though I definitely agree with on you on the part that trash TV sells because there is ‘demand’ for this kind of TV, or advertisers willing to pay for it. Recommend

    Jasmine’s ways maybe just as barbaric but she brings to the viewers’ attention those heinous crimes that need to be addressed, so dragging her name in this article is not appropriate. Recommend

    It may not be the solution, but firing her is certainly a step in the right direction. People need to KNOW taht their actions will have consequences.Recommend

  • MS-Mariya Suhail

    Firing was the right thing to do but we should have gone a step further and register an FIR against her to send a strong message to all current and future anchors that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    We didnt send Maya to jail for harassing and now we have another incident of Shamoon abbasi harassing people. He is seen targeting homosexuals and again poor people on streets and not homosexuals in 5 stars hotel or a homo mullah abusing children in madrassas.

    Homosexuality is haram in our religion but we can not let characterless anchors turning into moral police. Internet is again filled with Shamoon enjoying parties with non mahrams which is also haram in islam but the only haram which shamoon can see is in others.

    Excellent article!! Gosh, this video with Jasmine Manzoor is a bit sickening. Why is she being allowed to talk to the prisoner in this manner. Regardless of his crime, it is for the state to judge and punish him, not for this Manzoor woman! She has not been appointed as a judge, she’s just a TV personality in search of ratings.

    Fine, what he did wasn’t exactly civilized but there are much worse crimes (at the end of the day, it was grave desecration, not murder, or even rape). But that doesn’t give her the right to say the things she is saying, or to call him an animal. In many other countries, her behavior would land her in jail. Recommend

    A very unconvincing article. I hadn’t heard of Maya Khan either before the video went viral but what’s that got to do with the wrongfulness of her actions? Should we allow a thief to get away with it because we hadn’t heard of his/her name? Though in Maya’s case, I’d day her crime is even worse than theft. What she did was basically inviting taliban into our parks! What she did was unforgivable. I can understand the broader point you are trying to make but to specify that Maya Khan’s dismissal was somehow unfair or unreasonable is beyond my comprehension!Recommend

  • B Fawad

    I strongly disagree with the conclusion of this article, which states:

    “Until there is a neutral body established to regulate our media, financial considerations will continue to trump ethical ones.”

    Regulation of our media is the worse possible suggestion. Granted freedom of media (in essence freedom of speech) can be controversial. It is much better than a regulated media where politicians will use this excuse to regulate the media and control it. The current state of US media, and its recent attempts to censor the internet (SOPA, ACTA, PIPA), is proof of that phenomena. The attack by the blogger community and subsequent firing is ample regulation in my opinion.

    P.S: Isn’t regulation based on one’s ethical standard moral policing in reverse?Recommend

  • Irtiza

    I am anxiously waiting to see a talk show on the topic – Bullying by media. Let’s see if any of the anchors have the guts to discuss their own unethical behaviors.

    Its apparent Jasmin’s scriptwriters had taken a day off, she’s plain venting at the man. How dare she question him like that with her entire crew behind her. How dare she ask him whether he knew the kalma? Or said his prayers. Jasmin is known for losing her temper on her show but this is no better than Maya Khan. Actually it’s much much worse in my opinion. To humiliate a man who has already been convicted and to say things like ‘you don’t sound like you’re ashamed at all’ or ‘you must be made an example out of’ is NOT her job. It is not her job to ask personal questions. It is not her place to give him a lecture on his religion or create hypothetical situations that involve his sisters. How can she have the audacity to speak of ‘humanity’ whereas she herself has lowered him to the status of an animal?? No matter how wrong or bad or unethical an individual is he has the right to be treated like a human being. But sadly I am not surprised or shocked.
    Journalism in Pakistan is all about projecting your own values, and even though I believe in empowerment of women, majority of women show hosts (including almost all morning shows) are plain dumb or frustrated (Jasmin) and they love to play moral police. Recommend

    Well the episode was ignominious and maya khan really crossed her circumscribe this time. Agree things which are happening in parks dating etc is wrong but she don’t have right to just jump in and invade in one’s personal territory and asking cheap crummy questions this is really not acceptable (though they must be dating etc) she should have raised this issue on her talk show and would have tried giving lessons more wisely rather then doing this abominable practical….shame on the channel for putting on air first and then firing the team i think channel and host her team all are responsible….what’s happening…its so sad whatever happened she should be fined and the channel at the same time.Recommend

  • Sana Khan

    i agreed with you till it came to the point of you comparing jasmine khan’s actions with maya’s. and i have to say the comparison that you have made, and the clip you have put as ‘reference/proof’ is RIDICULOUS.

    the fact that those couples were out on dates was something that was maybe morally questionable (but not out rightly wrong) and legally, it had NO grounds. the clip of jasmine’s show where she is berating a man, is for a heinous CRIME that he committed. you yourself in this article mentioned that she (jasmine) hounds those who commit CRIMES. a few weeks ago, maya khan herself did a show where she went and caught those who were stealing electricity. that was something that needed to be brought to public attention because it was a C-R-I-M-E. those young people were NOT committing a CRIME.

    please…being a ‘journalist’ have SOME semblance of common sense in your writing. you are comparing apples and airplanes (really!)

    other than that, yes it doesn’t stop here. and yes everyone is aware it was all done for the ratings for which the TV networks themselves are responsible. but this episode will also serve as a reality check for them that they can’t just give ANY masala news and the public will eat it up.
