SC summons record of off-air clip

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) on Friday took notice of the leaked video clip pertaining to mid-break discussion on a private news channel during Malik Riaz’s interview, Geo News reported.

 

The SC has summoned the record of the off-air clip from Pakistan Electronic Media Regularity Authority (PEMRA) by afternoon.

 

It is pertinent to mention that behind the scenes footage showing private news channel anchors Mubashir Lucman and Mehr Bokhari talking to Riaz during their show surfaced on YouTube under the title ‘Malik Riaz Planted Interview with Mehar Bokhari and Mubashir Lucman on Dunya TV’.

 

The involvement of the owner of private news channel cannot be ruled out in this conspiracy, as there were strict instructions from him to the anchors not to interrupt Malik Riaz. The owner of the private news channel was also named by Lucman that he had pressurised him to conduct the interview.

 

There are two videos, in one of which Mubashir Lucman is seen receiving a call on his cell phone from Abdul Qadir Gilani, son of Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani. Later Lucman gave his phone to Malik Riaz, and then the PM’s son and Riaz Malik talked to each other.

 

During the mid-break ‘planning’, Mehr Bokhari told Malik Riaz that she would ask questions relating to the Chief Justice and Arsalan Iftikhar as Arsalan has told her that he never met Malik Riaz. Malik Riaz agreed.

 

Malik Riaz also asked the so-called anchors that he wanted to readout some documents, which later turned out to be orders of the Supreme Court against him.

Hats of to the whistle blower who exposed these so-called anchors. This type of behavior must be condemned by all specially the media itself and must get rid off these 'black sheeps' from among themselves to safe guard the honorable profession of journalism. It must also be investigated who is behind all this to discredit the Supreme court/Judiciary.

Well done Mr. Riaz. Not only are you a successful businessman but you have also been gifted of oscar worthy acting with your performance so far. You are a total disgrace to this nation and are equally responsible for corrupting everyone who works for you; including these two below average anchors.

People of Pakistan must understand that it is Almighty Allah Who has put the idea of making this clipping and bring to the notice of the People so that they may still learn the right lessons. It is now up to the people to really learn the right lessons. Allah has exposed the dirt and corruption of the corrupt mafia, will the people understand?

One is really shocked to see all this dirt. But the reality is that the most dirty people of our nation have been made our rulers as a punishment from Almighty Allah. So we can and should expect any limit of dirt. It is a defining moment for the people of Pakistan to decide about their future. It is good that Allah creates opportunities for the people to learn lessons. By HIS will, some God fearing person of Dunya News has brought out this clip for opening the eyes of the People
