Kamran Khan Show on GEO TV Banned!

Another unfortunate development of the day and I am unable to understand who is advising government of making such foolish decisions.

It seems now that the Government of Pakistan has banned Kamran Khan Show as yet another casualty in the ongoing saga of the Chief Justice of Pakistan’s (CJP) removal from office. Geo has just made it public and Kamran Khan appeared on Geo News just a few moments ago and apologized to viewers that he would not be able to present his show due to this ban (audio of what he said, here).

It was Kamran Khan Show in which Mr Wasi Zafar’s misbehavior on VOA was reported (video of that program here). He was also the host of Geo’s live transmission which showed and commented on the misbehavior with Chief Justice of Pakistan and his family last Monday. I guess Kamran Khan has finally paid the price of speaking the truth and his efforts to present facts to the people of Pakistan.

GEO TV website has this information on how the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has banned this show:

Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) has imposed ban on “Aaj Kamran Khan Key Sath”, the famous programme of Geo Television Network.

“Aaj Kamran Khan Key Sath” has been stopped as the government has imposed ban on it, said the spokesman of the Geo Television Network.

It was regretted at 11:05 PM, when this programme starts daily, that the programme could not be aired due to government ban.

Reacting to the ban on this programme, Kamran Khan, the host of the programme, condemned the government action and said that there was no other agenda of the said programme except making people aware of real facts and correct analysis.

This is a direct attack on freedom of press and freedom of expression. Looks like we will now see more bans if Pakistani Media didn’t cooperate with the government. I am also wondering what will happen to the Ansaar Abbasi now. We should all condemn this unjust action? But HOW?

Here are two samples of video clips from the Kamran Khan Show related to this issue.

Here is GEO’s own report on the attack on its office.

    All anchors of all TV channels, after seeing all your talks shows you have proved the nation that all political parties are united and fooling nation by criticizing each other, you on your own channels showed us passing harsh and filthy comments by leaders and their party members on each others then you show them sitting together shaking hands with each others, agreeing on issues of each others then after some time again talking against each other, then friendly with each other, the game of pro and against keeps on playing in front of nation. We nearly all have started believing that they all are same especially after sugar scandal and flood of 2010, the two major parties are making enormous amount of money in local currency as well as in foreign currencies, they are daringly looting us knowing that the nation can’t get away from trio of us 2 major political parties, they have made agreement that they will rule the country turn by turn like they did after Zia. And the 3rd ruling party is army, we all have seen army as well in last 4 coups, created political parties of lootairas and handing over the government to them, they did nothing for the betterment of people of Pakistan. Now about Zulfiqar Mirza’s accusation after 4 years of his party in government, telling America is planning to break Pakistan and MQM is supporting America and then Altaf Hussain bringing other parties in subversive activities is all planned drama, fool nation to save PPP for their next term which will come after 6 years if not Asif then Bilawal will be either President or PM, MQM will be least on risk as they will be coalition partner in the government of either political party. Mirza in his every press conference or TV interview categorically cleaning Asif Zardari and PPP any kind of wrong activity which the world is saying, and accusation is on America for breaking country, and MQM is with America. No anchor so far asked Mirza that America is already in 2 Islamic countries Iraq and Afghanistan, America is totally controlling these two countries now Mr Mirza tell us in how many states America has divided these two countries, whereas fractions within both these countries do exist, besides between these two countries there is Iran with which America is having long tussel going on, then why not Iran why Pakistan, Pakistan’s every government since 1958 associated with America, its every newly elected government’s head’s priority is to pay a visit to America to begin his duty according to instructions received from America.
    I beg to all TV Cannels and their anchors please stop flaming up these baseless things.

    A Valuable comment from Shazia Awan on the issue of 50% in PTCL:
    We all are thank full to Miss Marvi Mamon and Mr. Muhammad Barjees Tahir for taking a right decision but I request them to please also make arrangements for implementations of the decision of the committee. PTCL Management is such a rigid, blind and def to listen the voice of poor people. Is there any body to take action or to check how much heavy emoluments are being paid to contractual staff. Almost all (ten) SEVPs are being enjoying Rs.2 million per month. Every SEVP is being provided a company vehicle 1800 CC with 400 litter petrol although their residences are only 3 to 4 KM for from their offices. Every EVP equal to BPS-21 is being paid round about 1 million per month and there are at least 25 EVPS are working. Every General Manager (BPS-20) is being paid 350000 per month and at least more than one hundred General Managers are working in PTCL. All these are contractual employees.
    All regular employees of BPS-17 and 18 are being paid Rs.25000 to 30000 and the Government increase is conditional with their performance. Who the hell is the decision maker to issue such bull-shit circulars that due to inflation salary increase is conditional with performance base. Is inflation incomes with performance base?. Is a person who gave his golden time to PTCL and near to retirement is deprived from his basic human right because his performance is not such like the fresh graduate. Is this justice?. Mr. SEVP HR always live young and his performance is good.
    One more thing who is responsible for 2 billion losses occurs due to protest through out the country. who is responsible for that if some responsible persons are being sacked from the top level management then these losses would be recovered. no not and never. Our corporate client is shifting towards other operators, who is responsible for that.
    Ever any person think that the people sacked from other telecom companies or bank crupt companies or default companies these people are appointed in PTCL at top.
