Tiktoker Hareem Shah might grace our television screens in Ramazan this year. A recent tweet by an account identifying as Hareem revealed that she has been approached by a major TV channel to do a Ramazan transmission.
I have been approached by a Leading TV Channel to host their 2020 Ramadan transmission .. Do you want to see me host it? Share your thoughts.
“I have been approached by a leading TV Channel to host their 2020 Ramadan transmission. Do you want to see me host it? Share your thoughts,” Hareem asked.
A video of hers donning a hijab and lip-syncing to a hymn about fasting and Ramazan was also posted on the same account.

While reports of her doing a Ramazan show might be dubious it didn’t stop the public from voicing their opposition on the possibility. Many on social media, however, weren’t too keen on the prospect of Hareem making a transition into Ramazan based television programming.
“No please leave Ramazan transmission for ulema. You look good on TikTok,” one user said. “Itna bura waqat bi ana tha kiya hum py? ( Are we supposed to go through such a testing time now?),” another user asked.
However, there are also those that are extending their support to Hareem.
“Chalen theek hai agar Allah apko apni taraf laana chahta hai to yakin janiye aap is transmission se he apne apko Allah ki tarf rujoo karsakti hain (It’s fine If God is calling you then you should adhere to it. You have the capacity to turn to God through this transmission),” a user tweeted.
It is pertinent to mention that this is the same account that became the subject of controversy after a tweet from it threatened to expose compromising activities of a famous cricketer. However, the tiktoker subsequently denied that it was her own account noting that she doesn’t even use Twitter.
