MQM the Big Bad Wolf

Enough of our speculations on who could be at fault, for the sudden loss of transmission to over six channels in Karachi. ARY Digital, ARY One World, Geo TV, Geo News, Geo Super & AAJ YV. The mess started at around 5 pm and a few hours later Mustafa Azizabadi, MQM Information Secretary has been trying so hard to reinstate that MQM had no hand in this mess.

I have tried to reason all sides of the argument even going to the extent of trying to understand the motive behind the blanket block limited to Karachi only. I am on record to have even speculated that Geo was a ‘Drama Queen’ but it seems I might have to stand corrected on that statement and leave the Drama Queen title to be crowned some other day.

It seems MQM is pissed at the media outlets to have not given its press conference its due coverage and accuses the media to have ignored this historical event in Karachi. A number of statements have come from the London MQM headquarters and all have been denying any involvement in the censorship but surprisingly they go onto say

In a press release issued by MQM here Saturday, it is said that MQM’s Legal Aid rally is not covered properly while CJ Iftikhar’s rally, from Islamabad to Lahore, is being transmitted step-to-step, which it says is ‘journalistic dishonesty’. However, MQM believes in promoting the freedom of press. It also claimed that MQM’s rally was ten times larger than CJ Iftikhar’s rally on GT Road.

It also claimed that people themselves took the step to blackout the channels, as it was their reaction towards ‘such channels’ journalistic dishonesty’. Geo.tv

Please note the incriminating evidence which quite simply sums up the entire seven hour Karachi media black-out they use the term so casually, the enraged public seeing this ‘journalistic dishonesty’ closed down those channels.

Quite stunning at how simply they can deny any involvement in the confusion yet in the same statement drive home their grievance against the six media outlets to have ignored their ‘mammoth’ press conference and they in turn tried to teach these outlets a lesson for their bad behavior conspiring with the cable operators to shut down the offending channels. More so to bring them to their knees and beg for forgiveness. Honestly, Is this the Press Freedom they stand for? But wait, it has always been a strong Danda / Terror mentality with which they have maintained their full authoritarian control over their own voters

    MQM the big cheater and the killer of Pathans in Karachi. the big trader to pakistan was the Liaqat ali khan chooteya who collect the Muhajar in the city of Karachi. they polluted the karachi sity. this is the big achivement of president ayub khan to make the Islamabad capital instead of karachi. thanks to him that he safeguard the capital from the Muhajir Qomi Movement.

    MQM is fighting for poor peaople. Inshallah altaf Hussain is a great leader. He is LION of sindh.

  • AskimKabir |

    Abdullah,

    You are right, except the lion got scared and took refuge in the circus and now works for a MADARI.

    As for the poor, they are still poor, still living in Azizabad, lalookhet, shahfaisal, fbarea etc.

    Dear muhajirs ! As far as i can see the problem lie with you people too. Why you call yourselves "muhajir" ? Once migrated into Pakistan, you are all Pakistanis.. Stop Calling yourselves muhajir. If then any Punjabi, Sindhi calls you muhajir then give them a shut up call. Many punjabis and sindhis had also migrated from the India, do they call themselves muhajir? No.In USA, People have migrated from different parts of the world yet they call themselves Americans and they stand united as a nation, the Americans. So, stand united as Pakistanis. and stop following your so called Quaid Altaf hussain. If he is so dedicated to muhajirs why is he then enjoying a lavish life in England? he is a liar, fanatic, and killing thepakistans at the hands of pakistanis. He isamurderer and follows the orders of the west. Proud to be Pakistani.
