Later in the same show a gentleman with a questionable yet majestic mustache proceeded to sing the following "We had high hopes from Ahmad Shahzad but then realized he was a Pathan" Camera zoomed in on Aaqib who at this point was brimming with the confidence of a bigot, chuckling his heart out with an embarrassed and insulted looking Bazid Khan right by his side. The show was later issued a notice by Pemra for airing derogatory remarks about the Pashtun community.
