Lahore: At least one thousand petitions have been filed through out the country for the registration of blasphemy case against Geo for broadcasting an objectionable programme in its morning transmissions.
Different towns police have lodged FIR against the owner of the Geo and its host Dr. Shaista Wahdi,model,actress Veena Malik and her husband Asad Basheer Khattak under blasphemy laws and anti terrorist act.
On the other hand ,country wide protests are taking place only against Jang & Geo Media group,despite the fact the same Qawali was enacted on different couples in morning sows of ARY and Samma TV channels too.If Geo team did the wrong and being punished then why the same role was not applicable for all ?
Geo has apologized on this programme and also had suspended the whole team responsible for programming and airing the show and did not go to air with its repeat telecast but the other channels broadcast the clips of this morning show again n again ,aren’t they doing the same blasphemy that was being charged for Geo ?
According to the sources , Geo TV Network staff is worried about their personal security, because every common Pakistani look them down upon since protests are taking place. Hundreds of thousands of people on social media had already been hating Geo TV .
Country wide political forces are joining the protests and it seems that TV channel may face hurdles in near future. Geo TV was the only leading channel of Pakistan but Since allegations were leveled its transmission are being closed on cable network from Khyber to Karachi.
