Altaf Hussain

KARACHI – The supremo of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain has openly critizised the confronting attitude of Geo as a case being registered against Mir Shakeeur Rehman and others in Karachi’s police station.

Altaf Hussain maintained on Thursday that some elements had adopted the policy of confrontation. Concurrently, a case had also been filed in Karachi’s Mithda Police Station by one Advocate Mirza Asif.

The case had nominated the owner Mir Shakeelur Rehman and administration of Geo/Jang group under section 298 of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) that deals with blasphemy law.

Altaf Hussain castigated Geo and said “Some elements within the Geo have preferred the policy of “fight and let’s see” rather than making an apology.”

However, he did not mention at all that against whom Geo had a confrontation policy.

He also said that Geo did not portray high-ups of sensitive state institutions as per proper journalistic values.

moreover, the MQM chief appealed people to keep their protest peaceful against Geo TV. “Be it deliberate and undeliberate mistake on part of Geo, but taking law in hands on pretext of protest should be strictly avoided.”
