In her tweet, Bakhtawar stated that it was heartless to glorify Ehsanullah Ehsan on television. She stated it assures those terrorists – those who follow his ideology – that they will become safe and famous.
An interview of former spokesman of a banned TTP (Taliban) Ehsanullah Ehsan was aired by a private television channel.
Initially, Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) had barred the channel from broadcasting promo and interview of former TTP spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan.
Later, Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted permission to the news channel to air Ehsan’s interview.
