FRAMING OF POLITICIANS IN PAKISTANI COMEDY TV SHOWS: AN ANALYSIS OF PUBLIC PERCEPTION AND ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE
This article aimed to conduct a systematic analysis of how private Pakistani TV comedy shows are framing politicians and to investigate the Islamic perspective on the use of humor in political discourse, in order to shed light on the ethical and moral implications of such portrayals. A survey of 774 respondents was administered in Islamabad city by utilizing the probability sampling method. The results showed that education, literacy, awareness, and television viewing play a vital role in the formation of perception and public opinion. Highly educated people think very differently from less educated people and this is evident from their answers. At the same time, it is interesting to note that there is a clear difference in the thinking of those who watch less television and those who spend more time in front of the television. As we have seen in the light of the Qur'an and Hadith, it is not permissible to mimic or ridicules anyone, and the findings of this research paper have also proved this.
