Umar Riaz's eviction from Bigg Boss 15 came across as a major shock to the audience as well as fans. He was shown the door for being physically violent with Pratik Sehajpal during a task last week. From boycotting the show to slamming the makers for being 'unfair', netizens came out in support of Umar. Days after the eviction, Umar's younger brother Asim Riaz interacted with the paparazzi and shared his views on Bigg Boss' decision.
Asim, who became the first runner-up of Bigg Boss 13, called Umar's eviction unfair and unfortunate as the ongoing season has seen several physical fights. "Obviously unfair tha because pehle bhi dhakke maar raha tha koi. I think a lot of contestants jo bhi the Bigg Boss me, sab ne ek dusre ko maara dhakke but tab koi nahi nikla. Par Umar ne kiya aisa toh unfortunately usko nikaalna pada," he said.
Reacting to a question on bal ka prayog on Bigg Boss 15, Asim said, "Exactly Pratik ne, Karan ne bhi (dhakke diye hain). Par us time agar fair decision lena tha toh us time nikalna chahiye tha. Is time Umar ko nikaal diya. Like I said, uski game bahot strong thi. Jab aap dekho Weekend Ka Vaar toh actually unhone bataya hai ki Umar kitna strong hai aur woh baakiyon ki game kaise strong nahi hone de raha hai."
Coming out in support of his doctor brother, the rapper added, "Umar ka toh dhakka kuch dikha bhi nahi, and the thing was woh instigate hua tha usse, fir uska reaction tha. Uss din toh main dekh raha tha ki season mein guide kiya jaa raha hai sabko Umar ke khilaaf- Umar ki wajah se ye nahi ho raha, Umar ki wajah se wo nahi ho raha! It’s unfair and unfortunate but I think Umar ne sabka dil jeeta hai." When the paparazzi asked Asim about Umar's re-entry, he said he has no idea about that.
After Umar's exit from the Bigg Boss 15 house, Asim reunited with him and shared a picture on social media.
