Hailing from Ghursay, a small village of 2,000 people, and perched on the foothills of Siachen, the world’s highest battlefield, Shiraz takes his viewers on a journey through swinging stony streets and Persian style houses, aside from introducing them to local festivals and celebrations.

Shiraz uploaded and released his first vlog last month and has already grabbed tens of thousands of subscribers and a YouTube Silver Play Button.

Users took to social media to express their disapproval of Shiraz being invited to the show. “Dear Mr. Badami, see how innocent he is please don’t cash his innocence,” said a user on social media.

Actress Mishi Khan also criticized the channel for inviting the kid on the show. In her video message, she said that the media ruined the innocence and childhood of Ahmad Shah and she fears the same thing happening to Sheeraz as well
