Keeping Ramadan classy on MTV

Like most Christian-owned Lebanese broadcasters, MTV is fully embracing the Ramadan TV season, when dozens of new shows are released. And its kind of nice to see a station, which is known to air sensationalist and xenophobic programing, celebrate religious tolerance.  
Much of the Ramadan entertainment revolves around talk shows and MTV’s guests last night included MP Mustapha Alloush (left):

But on to more serious questions. Klink was asked to reveal a secret by the host:
“I shot someone once,” she said soberly, after much hesitation. 
“Did he die?” the show host asked. 

“Of course not,” Klink shrugged. “Otherwise I would be in jail.”
