Anwar Maqsood, the renowned writer and host of Pakistan, has always been very critical and hilarious in his views on the present, but this time speaking to the present, his style looks quite unique.
Anwar Maqsood spoke in an interview regarding the epidemic spreading worldwide.
Anwar Maqsood said, "I am very sorry to see the cooking oil advertisements on television nowadays. In these advertisements, people seem to make the best dishes. I request from TV channels that this time. Do not broadcast this type of advertisement, there are many people in Pakistan who have nothing to eat in their homes right now.
If seen, Anwar Maqsood also saw wars and political unrest in his life, but he describes the present as the worst.
"I haven't seen the worst of it, the whole world is locked in homes just for the fear of sneezing and coughing," he said.
According to Anwar Maqsood, 'But we must understand, lockdown is implemented all over the world, synagogues are being closed, then how will mosques not be closed? How will the doors of our homes not be closed? If we think right now, everything will be back soon. '
When he was asked about the impact of local cinema and TV due to the lockdown, he reacted very hilariously.
Anwar Maqsood said, "TV and cinema closure is certainly best; lockdown will not lead to new products, it is better for TV and cinema".
How are Anwar destined to spend time during a lockdown? Answering that question, he said, "I'm taking care of my health, painting and learning to cook new dishes."
He also said that people are turning to God during this difficult time.
On the question of writing something on the occasion, Anwar Maqsood said, "Even if I try to write some humor, it will probably not make me laugh."
