Patari working at giving its users something akin to a mute button so that they can mute certain artists. Does this have anything to do with the audience’s reaction to Patari giving Mohsin Haider Abbas their platform?
The platform recently announced that the Patari board have ‘requested a review of a new track and subsequent promotion of a music act on the platform‘. Which track exactly has not been specified.
“Members of the Patari board have requested a review of a new track and subsequent promotion of a music act on the platform. This review may also take public feedback into consideration.”
The announcement was clear that public feedback would be kept in mind. Besides that, the platform is working on creating a mute button. This feature will allow users to filter out certain artists.
“Patari is currently looking into technology for a user filter which will potentially allow listeners to mute or select artists according to their own choices and requirements. We will do this in the spirit of transparency and will keep you updated on such developments. Thank you.”
The audience isn’t complaining. In fact, they’re pretty glad the move centers around them.
People have their own opinions on whether or not the move is connected to the Moshin Haider Abbas controversy.
If its about banning #MohsinAbbasHaider then you are doing it wrong.
His wife got khula in court and that beating case is still in process. How one can judge on only one sided story??#IsupportMohsinAbbas

Still, other users of the platform want more to be done.
So basically you are going to continue promoting a wife beater. Well done. Not supporting men who beat the shit out of their wives is not a ‘choice or requirement’ like choosing a ghazal over pop music. It’s basic decency.

You guys are sick. Instead of shunning a wife beating adulterer you are actually investing time and energy into technology that will allow users to mute them yet still give offenders a chance? Shame on you. I’d rather mute all of you and just delete the app.
