Razan Moughrabi says she respects Ramadan
Lebanese television announcer Razan Moughrabi has denied circulating rumors that she has insisted on wearing revealing clothing on her section of the program “Al Bait Baitak” (The House is your House), which she presents live during the holy month of Ramadan.
Razan said that she and producer Mahmoud Barakerh, and the Egyptian television channel, have a common understanding regarding the traditions and ethics that Egyptian television follows during the holy month in terms of what shows are aired and how actors appear. Artists must be dressed in a manner that is conservative and respectable.
During Ramadan she wears clothing that is unrevealing and respectful of the holy month and to the viewers, said Razan.
The popular show acquired a new format for the holy month after Razan joined the crew.
The program has been divided into three sections the first is presented by the usual host journalist Mahmoud Saed, which usually deals with political issues.
The second part of the show is presented by Razan and Abbas and they talk about issues concerning men and women, usually including a social expert.
The final section of the program is specifically for hosting different artists and is presented by Tamer Amin and Muna Sharqawi. Nawal was particularly chosen to be the guest for the first episode and she began by wishing everyone around the Arab world a happy Ramadan and praised the Egyptian people stressing her extreme admiration for them.
On a different note, during the war between Israel and Lebanon, the entire team of the Arab television satellite channel MBC relocated from Lebanon to Cairo, to air its programs from a secure location until the situation in Lebanon became stable. Practically all MBC administration and high level employees fled to Lebanon. Sources have suggested the move may be a permanent one.
It was reported that Razan intended to leave Lebanon on a British ship, since she holds British citizenship along with her brother. However, Razan remained in Lebanon and sent her brother alone, who had a health condition. She refused to leave Lebanon under any condition, and insisted on staying with her mother and grandmother.
Razan participated in a rally with her countrymen and has expressed her outrage over a number of singers who escaped from Lebanon, insisting that is was important to remain at home during the crisis.
