GEO & Freedom of Expression Attacked

Saviours became attackers today.

The national crisis continues – with the city coming under siege today – Government is already going paler with every action of them going against them (no matter how much Wasi zafar, sherpao, Durrani tries to defend the situation and trying to get CREDIT of the Bull**** they are spreading).

The talk of town was GEO today instead of the CJP hearing that is being postponed untill 21st March.
Attack on Geo
Joshilay Jawaans of Punjab Police entered Geo News office building in evening, shattered glasses and started shelling within office premises. Rubber Bullets were fired on reporters, camera men, hence injuring a few people as well. The camera coverage was demanded to be closed by the officials. Staff members offered resistance to police aggression to save the premises.

Later in evening, Hamid Mir talked with Mushy and he said I’m Extremely Sorry on the incident and IMMEDIATE ACTION would be taken by tonight.

So the IMMEDIATE action is 1 inspector and 14 SI’s and Constables are FIRED WOW as if they were only 14 and as if a SUB INSPECTOR or even an INSPECTOR is so courageous and have such authority that they can RAID any building of such importance without any UPPER HAND involved. But who can go and hold on that HAND. The ones fired were mere executers of the ORIGINAL PLAN – just that the national extra bits of JOSH all of us are usually born with gets fierce in such situations.

For Details on attack read on.

The footage that’s been shown on Geo eversince is showing a large number of policemen entering in the building, shattering the main entrance glass doors, and every possible thing that could be broken and that our BRAVE SAVIOURS OF NATION could get their hands on.

They even harrased and tried to beat few women staff members that’s totally insane with the WOMEN BILL aka Haqooq e Niswa’an Bill just passed in an assembly withing a few kilometers reach of the place.

Attack on GEO
Information Minister Mohammad Ali Durrani rushed to Geo News office soon after incident and he himself witnessed the police thrashing the building.

GEO says about this on its own blog.
BBC wants to say something on political and awami weather too .
Geo was not save in Karachi as well.

Are we save??? Should I feel safe while walking on a road?? Should I feel safe that Police is around to PROTECT us?? What’s the image we are portraying??Why are we trying to segregate the already Segregated??

    Police has always being used … the officer was constantly in touch with some high up and in punjabi
    he was updating him of all the activities and in the end he informed the unknown superior that “operation is complete” … obviously it could be a tactic by govt to divert attention from CJ or it could be punishment to geo for reporting bitter facts that Govt didn’t wanted to hear in CJ Iftikhar Chaudry case… or it could be that lame minister Wasi Duffer…

    Well I think this is a yet another costly blunder by the Law Minister Wasi. If the Gov. needs to fire anyone its him and the high rank Mafia in the police.

    Surprising you two havent mention Musharraf in your comments as the perpetrator to all this. Which is excellent. I believe the police attacked the freedom of “Over Expression”.

    Please refrain from using negative language about our country on BBC & other foreign blogs, this is our internal matter and we will deal with it. Show positive language in front of others please.

    Geo Deserved it !

    Media responsibility is to keep it CALM the situation instead they are doing all against PK, GEO has created this whole issue as a major fall of Govt and what not.

    The media should not be involing into any kind of court metters, Govt had warnned them that “be responsible Media” not a childish one.

    They need to STAY POSITIVE all the time !

    GEO was FREAK yesterday just like Altaf Hussain phone conv. The biggest (BS) I ever sean …

    ATB

    If everyone is making so much noise for attack on Geo but not on CJ then we are certainly a nation of tamash-beens and not people who seek justice. Insaaf hu na hu tamasha huna chaheey.
