Some of Pakistan's female television presenters have been criticised by the country's more traditional Islamic clerics for wearing make-up and leaving their hair uncovered.

The clerics believe that women need to cover up their beauty and be modest.

Farah Hussain, who hosts a popular breakfast show, wears make-up and has her hair on display but maintains she is still a true Muslim.
