ISLAMABAD: In a battle of television rating during Ramadan, Pakistan prominent television Geo giving away abandoned babies to childless couples during its prime-time show.
The country’s most controversial presenter Aamir Liaquat Hussain has presented two babies to childless couples so far during Islam’s holy month.
