Private television news network Dunya News has announced to distance itself from Mohsin Abbas Haider whose wife accused him of domestic violence and infidelity. Mohsin Abbas Haider was employed by the network for its show Mazaaq Raat for several years.

In a statement, Dunya News said Mohsin Abbas Haider’s actions hurt public sentiment which the people expressed using various platforms. The network said Mohsin Abbas Haider has to clear his name and until such time the case against him delivers a not guilty verdict will no longer be a part of the show.

The network further clarified that the shows being aired now were recorded before these allegations.

Actor and singer Mohsin Abbas Haider’s wife Fatema Sohail shocked everyone through her social media post accusing the actor of domestic violence, repeated assault and infidelity on July 20th. She has also filed an FIR against him.

While Mohsin Abbas Haider has denied the allegations and have curled counter accusations to poke holes in Fatema Sohail’s story, the issue has sparked national debates and conversations on the issue of domestic abuse and violence against women.
