Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman – End of Jamaat-e-Islami

leave a comment »

Following PM Yusuf Raza Gilani’s “Historic Speech” announcing a “line in the sand”, Kamran Khan interviews Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman head of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee etc.

However although he has previously given halfway comments between Musharraf (he is critical of Musharraf), and being pro-Tehreek-e-Taliban, here he gives a very pro-Pakistan State comment.

Who Pays for Lawyer’s Movement (Shehzad Roy)

leave a comment »

Who pays for these ads ? How does Geo TV (a commercial channel) justify injection of non-paying 5 minute segments within profitable advertisement slots ?

Shahzad Roy’s music video appeared a number of times a day.

Who compensates them for this ?

Given that Iftikhar Chaudhry is not entirely free of corruption charges or political tilt, it is no wonder that people suspect Geo TV of “sellable to the highest bidder” (earlier against Musharraf, and now against the PPP – with PML-N a big pocket player).

If there is any smoking gun (i.e. paper trail for finance people), it is the financing behind Geo TV and AAJ TV’s running of VOA programs under their banner.
