Yesterday Business Plus host Jasmeen Manzoor – The Pulse was invited for a one on one interview with Nawaz Sharif, at his home in Raiwind, Lahore. For starters the interview appeared to be going fine until Jasmeen touched on a few sensitive issues with Nawaz Sharif, more specifically his controversial 10 year deal with Musharraf and his relationship with the Saudi government, it is then he is said to have suddenly gotten angry to the extent that the plunged at the camera to confiscate the video, threatening Jasmeen and the Business Plus TV crew to not talk about it
This scribe got wind of this breaking news late this Friday afternoon around 3 pm when an email was circulated on the People’s Resistance network asking us to watch the program which might be aired at 3 pm on ARY ONE WORLD, but much to our dismay nothing came on and quite naturally we assumed that either ARY may have buckled under the pressure or PCO-Bound-PEMRA was hounding over them. Only to see a news ticker at 6:30pm on Business Plus stating they protested against Nawaz Sharif’s ‘confiscation’ of the tape. Hence the confiscation of the tape may explain why it never made it on ARY or YouTube for that matter.
Later at 7 pm ARY & Business Plus then televised a press conference in which Jasmeen Manzoor and Rana Mubashir spoke about Nawaz Sharif’s behavior and how he had lost his temper when asked routine questions about the deals, etc. questions that have often been asked to other politicians in the past.
The lesson from this is that it would appear that it doesn’t make any difference who comes to power, they all have skeletons in their closets which they hope that the people of Pakistan suddenly forgive and forget and suddenly elect them as they hope to come in with a brand new sparkling ‘hair transplanted’ images.
Hats off to Najma on the People’s Resistance Network for keeping us update practically in real time, awesome work
I HAVE BEEN WATCHONG PROGRAMMS BY DIFERNT ANCERS. AMONG FEW INCLUDING MS JASMEEN NEED TO CONSIDER OR REVIEW THEIR WAY OF CONDUCT.
1. BE POLITE
2. BE COURTIOUS
3. DO NOT INSULT
4. ASK ANY QUESTION YOU LIKE
5. INTRUPT POLITLY IF THE AWNSER IS TOO LONG OR IRRELEVENT
6. YOU CAN REFRAME YOUR QUESTION
7. DO NOT FOLLOW NEGATIVE AGENDA
8. LET THE PEOPLE MAKE THERE OWN OPINION
9. IF YOU ARE INSULIVE, RUDE, IT DECREASES YOUR OWN CREDIBILITY
Nawaz Sharif & Shahbaz Sharif family Saudi Arabia/Pakistan Ranking: 4 Worth: £700m ($1.4billion) Industry: Politics/Businessma n Mr Sharif Businessman turned politician the former Prime Minister of Pakistan. He was ousted in a military coup in 1999 and was forced to forfeit $9million dollars and some of his assets including his $5m Mansion is Raiwind near Lahore . Before becoming PM he was a major share holder along with his brother and cousins of Ittefaq Group, having assets well in excess of £50m in the 90's. However he got richer when he took commissions from foreign companies for construction in Pakistan . He build the first motorway and many new roads and took heavy kickbacks. He then also stole $100m from the Iqra funds, he started a new scheme "Ghar Apna" in which he again looted around $40m, the "Mulk swaaro" scheme involving public & govt. money collections to help pay pf Pakistan's debts also was pocketed. He was living in exile in Saudi Arabia where it is known he has built a new empire. He is back in Pakistan to run again…
I view Business Plus for professional reasons. But I must say, Jasmeen Manzoor is one crow I try to avoid. Her mannerisms, her speech, elocution and voice is simply irritating.
If the four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie started singing, they wouldn't sound far off from Ms. Jasmeen's croak.
The Network for Resistance against the Peoples Resistance Network condemns Jasmeen Manzoor
who's bothered about what nawaz sharif says, i'm more interested in Balochistan and specially CIAs' involvement in our province.
Jasmeen Manzoor ….. AN IRRITATING HOSTESS…. SHE SHOUTS AND SHOUTS SO THAT GUESTS MAY BE IMPRESSED/DEPRESSED….
SHE IS UNABLE TO COME TO AN POSITIVE END…. LEAVE THE PEOPLE IN TENTIONS… SHE NEEDS:
1. POLITE NESS
2. COOL TEMP
3. LIGHT VOICE
4. GENTLE BEHVIOUR
LUQMAN SHOW: THE WORLD'S MOST RUDE PERSON…. SO IGNORANT… HE ASKS A LONG QUESTION AND THEN INTRUPTS THE GUEST WHEN THEY TRY TO REPLY… HE MUST BE OUT FROM TALK SHOWS…. HE MUST BE APPOINTED AS DRIVER OF ANY TRANSPORT SECTION DUE TO HIS BEHAVIOUR…. HE IS TRYING TO GAIN SAMPATHIES OF PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN BEING " JOURNALIST"…. HE TALSK IN A WAY THAT ONE CAN NOT TOLERATE HIM… HE TRIES TO DEPRESS ALL POLITICIANS… I DONT LIKE THIS…. ALL PARTY LEADERS ARE EQUALLY RESPECTABLE FOR ME….
LUQMAN GO OUT.
What i get most amazed at is the change in tone and the style evident when she is interviewing an MQM guy. it sems more like chance given to the politician to keep harping on his belabored circumlocuting points rather than a candid interview. she keeps nodding her head in approval like a meek cat and then she switches all of a sudden if there is a politician from some other party in front of her. What a shameless coward!
ABOVE LINES I HAVE COPIED OF SOME ONE FROM THE SAME FORUM…. THESE ARE THE BEST LINES IF SOME ONE WANTS TO STUDY Jasmeen Manzoor…. SHE REALLY NODES HEAD IN POSITIVE WHEN SOME ONE SPEAKS IN FAVOUR OF HER OR AGAINST NAWAZ SHARIF OR PPP ETC. SHE NEEDS TO BE JOURNALIST NOT A PARTY REPRESENTATIVE…. SMA ARE THE CONDITIONS OF Dr.Mubashir, , Dr.Danish AND Mujahid Barelvi…. THEY ARE NOT SENSIBLE IN MATTER OF QUESTIONING…. Danish is too much strange in interviews… LOUD VOICE OR STRANGE PHYSICAL GESTERS ARE NOT THE SIGN OF GOOD HOST… BARALVI MUST BE RETIRED NOW…..

This is with reference to above mentioned person's comments on qazi hussain ahmad…
You said that "qazi hussain must be killed or arrested".. this is what ur mind is reflecting ur self… If you are right on your MANSHHOOR And party views, keep preaching these.. but u should not say such poor words like TO KILL because.. on one hand u have reflected ur partie's view too….by syaing this….
Jamat islami needs some imporvemnets.. thats true, but all people know that they are not preparing suciders… Afgan Jihad was ended when Russian Troups went from Afgahanistan… and so Hikmat Yar too sat aside when there was battle for corwn in afghanistan later on.. This is one proof…that Jamat islami did'nt involve in fights among muslims….
Taliban ruled in afganistan for 4 years and all the world got worried after they saw how successfully they ruled.. since that time taliban was thrown out through americans… since then there are no more talibans now… The terrorists in pakistan are using the name of Taliban, whereas they are not exist at all…
so add this knowledge in your mind and pray all our leaders including altaf husaain may live long… ameen
The guests appearing at the show, represented their parties and are expected to have their facts and figrures stratight. With that being said if a rep does not feel confident in throwing out wrong figures about their vote banks(this is regarding Feb 20th. telecast and specifically talking about the PML-N rep)…yes they will be humiliated on their own, the host only questions on behalf of the citizens of Pakistan, which is their job. Since the show is being aired to the masses regardless of the host, only true and appropriate info must be shared.
