Waseem Badami assures a really ‘decent’ Ramazan transmission

Badami explains hosting Shan-e-Pakistan is a spiritual trip he needs each Ramazan and tries to make it infotainment. Ramazan’s here which means Waseem Badami is back with Shan-e-Pakistan!

Discussing the yearly Ramazan transmission he hosts, he shared “It’s a marathon transmission that will operate each day, where we’ll begin the Sehri session as early on like 1:30 in the morning and it will be continue until after Fajr and for Iftar, we’ll be on air from 2:30 pm onwards.”

Elaborating on the show’s legacy, he declared, “Shan-e-Ramazan is virtually a decade old now, I myself have been hosting it for seven years, Junaid bhai and Amjad bhai were also there so people know the display. We try to keep the show decent, we want to give people spiritual and religious knowledge and also a nice time, what you contact infotainment generally.”

“There’s lots of different components to it, we have tilawat and naats followed by a cooking food section for ladies . Then there’s a few conversations with ulemas and a naiki segment, where we help people. We also try to make it really interactive for the children.” We had to ask how hectic it gets shooting back to back for an entire month .

Badami shares he’s got small to complain about: “It’s been an unforgettable knowledge. Each year, right before Ramazan begins, my family just rukhsats me and I pack my bags and just go live on set. It’s a spiritual trip but also a true trip. We’re always on the run. There are constantly people around, I get to learn a lot. It’s also tiring and sometimes I’m sleep deprived so I’m nervous I might end up declaring something wrong but overall, it’s a very thrilling and satisfying knowledge. These 30 days are so unforgettable, you think about them for the rest of the yr.”
