Riham Saeed’s Return Sparks Boycott Campaign


A new boycott campaign to Al Nahar TV channel is trending on social networks in Egypt, following the news of resuming Riham Saeed’s television talk show “Sabaya Al Khair ” which was banned from TV last October after invading the privacy of a sexual harassment victim and humiliating her in front of millions of viewers.

People online have expressed their anger with the hashtag #حذفقنواتالنهارمنالريسيفر which translated to “Remove Al Nahar Channels from your receiver”.
