Egyptian television presenter Nagwa Ibrahim
Cairo - Shima Mikkawi
Egyptian television presenter Nagwa Ibrahim has urged her media colleagues to provide solutions to resolve the current political crises in Egypt, instead of criticising her show.
Writing on her Facebook page, Ibrahim said that media presenters and journalists must raise spirits of the nation, instead of using scaremongering tactics.
"If you sit back and criticise, maybe you should submit solutions to the current crises? How about helping those who want to work in the national interest, instead of exaggerating the negatives and intimidating people?"
The presenter told Arab Today that the role of Egyptian media has changed over the last few years, adding her colleagues must take responsibility and provide answers.
Ibrahim's new television programme has been criticised by sections of the media for highlighting the Egyptian plight, without putting forward practical solutions.
