The renowned Pakistani anchorperson stormed into the headlines yet again when he was detained at Yangon airport on Saturday after he had landed in Myanmar (Burma) to help the oppressed Rohingya Muslims.
The anchor person had boarded the Yangon-bound flight from Bangkok, Thailand to cover the tyranny faced by the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.
